Of course, it also has parental controls as this bike can be started only when the ignition key is inserted to minimize accidental starts.

The design is also stylish and appealing to young children and can provide hours of fun for the entire family.

2020 Yamaha TT-R50E Review

2020 TT-R50E review, ttr50e review

Age (3-6yrs)

The 2020 Yamaha TT-R50E has been kept simple so that young riders will still be able to have fun. In the 2020 version kids will not need to fiddle with the clutch lever so that they can focus completely as they ride. It comes with a clutchless 3-speed transmission enabling learners to study the ins and outs of gear shifting without dealing with the clutch. It generates high power through its compact 4-stroke, 49cc, air-cooled engine. Yamaha TTR-50E’s engine offers smooth power delivery to the drive chain.

Yamaha equipped this bike with an adjustable throttle controller to limit your kids’ access to power. To add on to that, it has a key ignition ensuring that your kids can only ride them under instruction. The Yamaha’s TTR-50E cool motor cross inspired plastics and styling also make it a favourite among kids.

It might be a bit pricey, but it lives up to the hype.

2019 Yamaha TT-R50E Review

2019 Yamaha TT-R50E, review

Age range: 3-7

The 2019 Yamaha TT-R50E is a fantastic choice of dirt bike for your child to start their dirt bike riding adventure. Yamaha has made this bike strong and durable and it’s a pleasure to ride!

The 2019 Yamaha TT-R50E has an electric start system. This is useful as it saves you or your child having to kickstart the motorbike over and over again when teaching or learning to ride. It also requires having the key in the TT-R50E’s ignition so a child cannot accidentally start the dirt bike when learning to ride. The 3-speed gearbox has an automatic clutch which makes this bike easy to operate and one of the simplest bikes to learn on.

If you have a really small child, it is worth noting that this Yamaha dirt bike is a little bit heavy to lift then some other Yamaha dirt bikes.

The 2019 Yamaha TT-R50E is a small dirt bike, but irrespective of the size, at a pinch, you can have an adult double a child while teaching them to ride. The 2019 Yamaha TT-R50E should last you a long time. Once your children have outgrown this dirt bike, you might just find you want to keep it, so you have a reliable little bike to teach others on, (or for a little fun now and again)!
