Yamaha PW50 And TTR Line Back For 2015
Even more news from Yamaha:
Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. has announced the launch of the complete 2015 TT-R line and the iconic PW50 for 2015.
The PW50 has long been the motorcycle to introduce kids to the joys of off-road riding, and is often the launching platform for a lifetime of two wheel fun. With its low seat height, virtually maintenance-free oil-injected 49cc two-stroke engine, automatic transmission and shaft drive, the PW50 is the perfect entry motorcycle.
Getting started on an adventure aboard a TT-R is as simple as pushing a button. Every model in the line features a convenient electric starter and aggressive YZ styling. As the rider grows so does the TT-R line, starting with the TT-R50E which introduces riders to shifting, but utilizes a throttle stop screw to restrict speed while beginners are learning to ride. As the rider progresses they can move on to the TT-R110E with more gears, a bigger wheel size and more suspension travel. Next in line is the TT-R125LE and TT-R230, where riders are introduced to a manual clutch, a more powerful engine and a front disc brake.
With a complete line of off-road motorcycles starting with the PW50, growing through the TT-Rs and continuing on to the YZs and WRs, Yamaha has bikes suitable for an entire family and their off-road adventures.
