Motorcycle manufacturers traditionally unveil next year’s off-road models in the summer. With the Pro Motocross season in full swing and families taking to the trails, it’s a perfect time to drum up interest in off-road riding. While the COVID-19 crisis seriously altered the motocross schedule this year, social distancing ordinances make trail riding even more appealing.
Yamaha is seizing the moment by announcing its 2021 trail bikes. Featuring the TT-R50E, TT-R110E, TT-R125LE, TT-R230E, and PW50, the bLU cRU offers accessible off-road motorcycles for the whole family. The trail bike range is suitable for various skill levels, whether you’re an experienced rider or it's your first time swinging a leg over a bike.
“Yamaha’s trail-focused motorcycle lineup is perfect for those discovering the fun and freedom of the outdoors, trail riding, and enjoying time with friends and family,” said Yamaha Motorsports’ Product Line Manager Derek Brooks. “With the 40th anniversary of the PW50, Yamaha is celebrating four decades of sharing our passion and introducing generations of kids to the world of off-road riding.”
As a stalwart for the past four decades, the PW50 has proven its mettle with 380,000 units sold in over 150 countries. The toy-like design, 18.7-inch seat height, and automatic transmission make the diminutive dirt bike very approachable for younger riders. Parents can also be reassured by the adjustable throttle stop screw that tames the 49cc, two-stroke single.

Yamaha’s Autolube oil injection technology on the PW50 also eliminates the need to premixing oil and fuel while the shaft drive reduces the overall maintenance required. While the go-to child’s bike stays virtually unchanged for 2021, the model now comes in the next-generation Team Yamaha Blue color option. At $1,649, the PW50 is an affordable and beginner-friendly way to get your tyke on two wheels.
Filling out Yamaha’s trail bike lineup, the TT-R50E, TT-R110E, TT-R125LE, and TT-R230E are fit for a much wider range of riders. Each bike features an electric start, four-stroke engine that optimizes durability, dependability, and a broad powerband. The lower seat heights also prioritize rider comfort and confidence.
Available at Yamaha dealers in July and August, the 2021 TT-R50E ($1,699 USD), TT-R110E ($2,299 USD), TT-R125LE ($3,349 USD), and TT-R230E ($4,449 USD) are the easy way to get the whole gang out on the trails this summer. Just like the PW50, all models are unchanged from 2020, but they each come in next-generation Team Yamaha Blue plastics. Yes, this summer is unique, but you and the whole family can still have fun on a tried and true trail bike.
Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA, announces its complete lineup of 2021 trail motorcycles and celebrates the 40th anniversary of the PW50. Designed for experiencing the outdoors, the TT-R lineup is made for trail riding that the entire family can enjoy.

2021 PW50: 40 Years, One Great Bike
With 40 years under its belt, the 2021 PW50 continues to be one of the best trail bikes for first-time riders. After making its debut, the PW50 established itself as the go-to bike for children just learning how to ride off-road. By focusing on a “toy-like” design, Yamaha engineered a bike that was both visually appealing and approachable to new, younger riders. Selling over 8,000 units in its first year, Yamaha has now shipped more than 380,000 PW50s to over 150 countries.
The 49cc, two-stroke engine coupled with the fully automatic transmission make this a perfect bike for beginners. The PW50’s seat height of only 18.7 inches and the adjustable throttle stop screw offer both rider comfort and parent peace of mind. Additionally, the PW50’s shaft final drive system is virtually maintenance-free while Yamaha’s proven Autolube oil injection system eliminates the need for fuel/oil premixing.
The 2021 PW50 will be available from dealers this month in next-generation Team Yamaha Blue for $1,649 MSRP.
