The 2021 Yamaha TT-R50E is a Fantastic Offroad Starter Bike
The 2021 Yamaha TT-R50E is designed to be the perfect beginner bike for kids and preteens that have a passion for the outdoors. Part of the whole model range philosophy of the TT-R series is family enjoyment of a day, or even a weekend, out on the trail, tackling tree roots and mud alike.
You’ll want reliable Japanese engineering when doing those weekend trips. The TT-R50E is powered by an air-cooled, 50cc, 2 valve 4-stroke engine that is extremely lenient for those little ones getting to grips with motorcycles. Torque is rated at 2.3 lb-ft, which is enough for a 7-11 year old to get good mileage and appreciation of how a trail bike can ride, accelerate, brake, but without going so far as to be extremely dangerous (all riding carries some risk, but that risk can be mitigated with appropriate gear and bikes). Yamaha bikes balance all of this in a neat package.
The 2021 Yamaha TT-R50E starts at $1,699 USD / $1,899 CAD.
