The Yamaha PW50 is a two-stroke off-road bike that made its debut way back in 1981. The PW50 was designed for kids who are just learning to ride off-road. In other words, the PW50 is designed to help beginning riders learn to handle the trails safely and confidently. Power output on the PW50 is mild and manageable. The bike was also designed with ease-of-handling for smaller riders in mind. The fact that the PW50 is such a good bike for beginning riders made it one of Yamaha’s most popular models for decades. Although production of the PW50 was temporarily suspended in 2010, after an absence of two years, the model returned to showrooms in 2012. As the PW50 was designed with younger riders in mind, it contains a simple shaft drive and automatic transmission as well as an oil injection system. The PW50’s low seat-height, easy-to-operate electric starting system, and automatic clutch make it the ideal choice for a beginner’s dirt bike. The 2013 Yamaha PW50 has a seat height of just 19.1 inches, an adjustable throttle, and a fully automatic transmission. If you’re looking for a good bike to introduce your kid to off-road riding, the PW50 is worth considering.
