2008 Yamaha PW50 (2-Stroke)

Start em up with our lowest price ever!

One of the industry’s best-selling mini-bikes, the PW50 is a fantastic entry-level bike to help young riders learn the ropes. A removable power-limiting exhaust restrictor and throttle limiter lets parents control the fun and increase power as a rider’s skill improves and our lower price ever makes the PW50 an incredible value.

The 2008 Yamaha PW50 has introduced thousands of young riders to the dirt over the years. Safety, confidence and convenience as standard features. Just wait till you see those smiles.

To introduce your little ones to the fun and excitement of off road riding, there’s no better machine than the PW50.

In fact, this lightweight, easy-riding bike is one of the industry’s best-selling minis. An air-cooled, 49cc 2-stroke engine gives you single-speed power that’s super reliable and easy to control. Just gas it and go. A removable, power-limiting exhaust restrictor allows parents or adult supervisors to increase power output as a rider’s skill level improves. When learning is this much fun, they’ll really apply themselves! And check out the new low price too.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Adult supervision and proper protective riding gear, including a helmet, are a must when a youngster is operating a PW50.



Air-cooled, 49cc, reed-valve, 2-stroke single is mildly tuned to deliver predictable power that gently eases the new rider up the off-road learning curve.

Reed-valve intake system smooths power delivery and widens the powerband.

Single-speed fully automatic transmission means rider simply twists the throttle to go. This allows a young rider to concentrate on the ride ahead without having to worry about clutching and shifting.

Shaft drive system is virtually maintenance-free and comes fully enclosed for added protection and durability. There is no chain to worry about adjusting or lubricating.

Exclusive Autolube Oil Injection System eliminates the need and hassle of fuel/oil premixing. This system precisely meters the exact amount of oil required by the engine.

Washable foam air filter reduces tune-up costs.

Maintenance-free CDI ignition produces a hot spark for sure starts and reduced plug fouling.

Quiet, environmentally friendly exhaust will keep the neighbours smiling.

Exhaust pipe has been routed away from rider to avoid accidental contact burns. Heat shields also protect young riders from hot components.

Rugged steel backbone-type frame

Class-lowest 485mm (19.1″) seat height creates a handling-enhancing low centre of gravity and allows most riders to put both feet down for added confidence.

22.5mm telescopic front fork with 60mm (2.4″) of travel smooths out the bumps.

Dual rear shock suspension with 50mm (2″) of wheel travel deliver a plush, confidence-inspiring ride.

Front and rear drum brakes provide strong stopping power. Hand-operated levers are similar to those used on bicycles.

Durable, mag-style wheels means there’s no need to tighten or replace spokes. They are easy to clean too!

Knobby tires provide excellent traction in the dirt.

Specially designed one-piece rear fender, side panels and seat can be easily removed for cleaning or maintenance.

Rugged plastic bodywork resists damage in the event of a tip over.

Plush, motocross-style seat provides ample comfort and allows maximum rider movement.

Team Yamaha-inspired colours, graphics, and front and side number plates create styling just like the bigger YZ series of off-roaders.

Large, folding footpegs with rubber grips provide excellent footing even in wet or muddy conditions.

Premium-quality handgrips and levers are durable and comfortable.

Heat shields on engine and exhaust protect young riders from hot components.

Adjustable speed limiter screw on throttle housing restricts acceleration and top speed.

Removable exhaust pipe restrictor allows parents to increase top speed as skills improve.

Start/Run switch prevents unit from moving while in the start position.

Easy-access handlebar/dash-mounted choke lever.

All new YZ inspired graphics for 2008.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Adult supervision and proper protective riding gear, including a helmet, are a must when a youngster is operating a PW50.
