Beginner-Friendly Four-Stroke Performance
The YFZ50 is engineered as the ideal starting point for aspiring ATV riders ages 6 and up. With a low-maintenance 49cc engine tuned to develop responsive, controllable performance and engine limiters with a power cut-off tether switch for safety, it's easy for young riders to feel comfortable as they grow their skills.
Reduced Maintenance Design
Servicing is simple thanks to features like the tool-less quick-access air filter element.
Scaled Down, Not Scaled Back
Single I-arm front suspension is tuned for light, easy steering and comfortable ride quality. The rear swingarm also features a compact single shock for good control and comfort. It also boasts convenient features like a fully automatic CVT transmission and electric start with a back-up kickstart.
A robust steel frame design incorporates a large 1.5-gallon fuel tank, plush seat and roomy integrated floorboards.
Yamaha Sport ATV DNA
Styling is unmistakably inspired by the race-ready Yamaha YFZ450R. Durable Duro® tires and lightweight wheels further enhance the sporty look and handling character.
Engine Limiter and Tether Switch
To help young beginners grow into accomplished ATV riders, the YFZ50 includes a two-stage rpm limiter, as well as a throttle limiter to match engine performance to the rider’s advancing skill level. A tethered switch also allows parents to closely monitor new riders and cut power to the engine if necessary, so young enthusiasts can safely learn the basics of ATV control.
Robust 49cc Engine
The 49cc four-stroke SOHC engine is tuned to develop excellent low- to mid-range performance, just where it’s needed. The motor is air-cooled for simplicity, performance and long engine life, and uses ultra-reliable wet-sump lubrication.
Push-button electric starting comes standard and is powered by a reliable sealed battery. For additional peace of mind, a kick starter is also provided.
Fully automatic, continuously variable transmission (CVT) means no shifting. Handy for all riders, it’s a feature new riders will particularly appreciate.
Engine power is transferred to the rear wheels via a robust chain drive, running along a swingarm that’s set at an optimized angle for rear shock performance.
Low Maintenance Design
Servicing is easy, thanks to features like the tool-less quick-access air filter element. The exhaust includes a standard spark arrestor as well.
Single I-arm front suspension is tuned for light, easy steering and comfortable ride quality. The rear swingarm also features a compact single shock rear suspension for good control and comfort.
The YFZ50 is designed to be comfortable and accessible for new ATV riders. With its roomy ergonomics, plush seat and wide floorboards, riders 6 and up won’t quickly outgrow the machine before they’re ready for more displacement.
Duro® low-profile tires—AT16 x 6.5-7 front and AT16 x 7-7 rear—give YFZ50 aggressive looks and sporty handling.
Secure Stopping Power
For reliable stopping power, three sealed drum brakes bring the YFZ50 to a secure stop. There’s a handlebar-mounted parking brake too.
