Since 1981-2008 the Yamaha PW50 has been the most popular motorcycle ever manufactured. In the early 1980's it was named the Yamaha YZinger then later the PW50 name was given. For nearly 30 years this little 50cc automatic 2-stroke dirt bike has been virtually unchanged and most all parts on all years are interchangeable.
1981 Yamaha YZinger
The PW50 is simply the best bike ever built for kids under 10 years old to learn to ride on. Kids are not intimated by its low 19” seat height, 10” wheels and drive shaft final drive. Parents love the adjustable throttle assembly, exhaust pipe restrictor, automatic transmission and oil injector so kids can begin riding off-road at very controlled pace.
1990s Yamaha PW50
There many choices of dirt bikes designed for kids. Parents need choose a bike that is not only safe and fun for kids, but also one that is easy for parents to get tech information if needed and to purchase parts easily.
2008 Yamaha PW50
Check out your local Yamaha dealer's new PW50s, and bring your kid so you can see how they fit on the bike in the showroom. For about $1,000.00 a new PW50 is still a great deal. However if you can't afford the new ones look in your local newspaper, bargain trader/auto trader, and shopper newspapers for a used one. Also check eBay and Craigslist for super deals on used PW50s. Don't be afraid of a PW that is old and tired looking; with a few bucks it could look and run as good as a new one.
Used Late 1980s PW50
Used PW50s Valued at around $500 are an awesome deal, but you may also find many older PW50s for sale between $300-$700 depending on condition.
