    Fully-automatic 50cc 2-stroke engine

    The PW50's lightweight 50cc 2-stroke air-cooled engine is designed specifically to suit the needs of new riders. Smooth and responsive, the fully-automatic gearbox makes for rider-friendly 'twist-and-go' performance - and the simple throttle limiter allows parents to adjust top speed to suit the rider's skill level.

    Low seat height and user-friendly controls

    With its low seat height of only 485 mm and a comfortable riding position, new riders will feel instantly at home on the PW50. The handlebar layout is similar to a bicycle's, with the back brake operated by the left hand and front brake by the right, making it easy for beginners. Just twist the throttle and the fun begins.

    Low-maintenance shaft drive

    Just about every feature on this remarkable little motorcycle has been designed to make the PW50 fun to ride and easy own. The fully-enclosed shaft drive system is clean and quiet, which, together with its low-maintenance design, makes this system the obvious choice for new riders and for parents wanting an easy life.

    Light and strong polypropylene bodywork

    Just like Yamaha's larger-capacity off road bikes, the PW50 is equipped with polypropylene bodywork which combines high strength with low weight. The front and rear fenders and side panels are finished in racing blue, and bright tank graphics and white racing number backgrounds give this leading mini-bike a sporty image.

    Strong 3-spoke steel wheels

    Although it weighs only 39 kg, this is a tough little motorcycle that's designed to deliver many years of fun. Its 3-spoke 10 inch steel wheels are strong and easy to clean - and for plenty of grip, the PW50 runs on chunky 2.5 inch wide tyres.

    Easy ownership

    Parents who are new to the world of motorcycling needn't worry about mechanical matters, because clever design makes the PW50 easy to own. A separate 2-stroke oil tank means you don't need to pre-mix the oil and fuel, and the easily-accessible engine, strong steel wheels and shaft drive require little routine maintenance.

    Lightweight high-level exhaust

    Check out the exhaust and you can see another example of how our engineers have gone to great lengths to enhance safety and convenience. Featuring a heat shield for added protection, this lightweight pipe is routed close to the engine for extra ground clearance and improved protection.
