FEATURES & BENEFITS

ENGINE

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 restrict the engine’s performance and adapt to the rider’s advancing skill levels. A tethered switch allows parents to closely monitor new riders and cut power to the engine if necessary as new riders 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 aircooled for simplicity, performance and long engine life and it uses ultra- reliable wet-sump lubrication.

Electric Starter
Push-button electric starting comes standard, powered by a reliable sealed battery, and a kick starter is provided for additional peace of mind.

Automatic Transmission
Fully automatic, continuously variable transmission (CVT) means no shifting. Handy for all riders, it’s a feature new riders will particularly appreciate.

Sporty Drivetrain
Engine power is transferred to the rear wheels via a robust O-ring 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.

CHASSIS/SUSPENSION

Sporty Chassis
Single A-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. And the entire package includes awesome YFZ-derived sport ATV styling.

Comfortable Accommodations
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 outgrow the machine before they’re ready for more displacement when they’re older.

Optimized Tires
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.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Modern, Reliable Electronics
The CDI system means reliable ignition performance, with a strong, efficient spark, and a sealed, maintenance-free battery gives worry-free service.

Yamaha Sport ATV DNA
The YFZ50 offers the same sporty looks as the rest of the YFZ family, for exciting sport ATV style.

Aggressive New Color
New for 2019, aggressive new color options boost style, including Team Yamaha Blue or a clean White with a choice of red/black or black/magenta graphics packages.
