Keep it simple. That’s what Yamaha continues to do with the 2020 Yamaha TT-R50E. Young riders can learn to shift through three gears via a shift lever, but they do not have to fiddle around with a clutch lever, allowing them to focus on having fun. Additionally, its 49cc air-cooled four-stroke engine is approachable and great for learning. Equipped with a throttle stop screw and keyed ignition, the TT-R50E allows for the parents to maintain as much control as possible.

2020 Yamaha TT-R50E Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

In comparison with the PW50, the TT-R50E has spoked wheels, three gears, a slightly higher seat height at 21.9 inches, and an electric start (hence the E in the name). In a past Dirt Rider comparison between the PW50 and TT-R50E, staff said that “No matter how big you are, this fun four-stroke [TT-R50E] is a blast for both kids and adults to play on.”

Beginner-oriented trailbikes include the Suzuki DR-Z50 and Honda CRF50F and Yamaha’s own PW50. If the young rider would prefer more race-oriented machines, there are the KTM 50 SX and 50 SX Mini to scratch that itch.
