Yamaha PW 50 – a 50cc fully automatic motorcycle

Christmas is here and our children are looking forward to the Fat Man dropping off a bag of well earned swag. A lot of us who ride bikes today will remember our first time on two wheels with fondness. For some it was in a yard with our instructor on the first day of our Initial Basic Training lessons. For some it was on a friends bike, and, for a lucky few it was on something like Yamaha’s PW 50.

The Pee Wee, as its affectionately known in these parts, is a 50cc fully automatic motorcycle designed for off road use. As well as having an adjustable throttle, so that mum or dad can control the rate of acceleration all the way down to walking pace, the machine also comes with a fully automatic gear box so your little one gets to learn about balance and throttle control.

At only 39 kilos the bike is light enough for most adults to be able to lift with one hand and small enough for children as young as three to be able to operate. For ease of use the bike comes with a separate two stroke tank as well as a main stand. There is a fully working suspension set up on either end, it’s easy to service and comes with a noise damping exhaust system.

Yamaha PW 50 – Socially Responsible

The people in Yamaha are socially responsible. To that end this is not a bike that has been made with any sort of road use in mind. The PW 50 is made for off road use only. It has been made with a set of grippy foot pegs and handlebar grips as well as a comfortable bump absorbing seat!

The PW is only available from official Yamaha dealers. Buying from one of our approved stores allows you to purchase the machine from someone who knows what they are selling. It also allows you to take advantage of the wealth of motorcycling advice and knowledge available from your local dealer. Everything from the contact details for the clubs that promote off road riding, to getting your child fitted for protective clothing and a helmet, as well as assistance with maintenance and advice when moving on to a bigger bike and on-going training are available.

Yamaha PW 50 – It’s All Covered

This year the people at Yamaha are playing Santa by giving away a €100 voucher towards personal protective equipment with every PW 50 to help you get your little one started on what promises to be a lifetime of two wheeled enjoyment.

We leave the last words to the President of Motorcycling Ireland, Sean Bissett: ‘There are affiliated clubs all over Ireland who can provide guidance and advice for beginners. The resources are there for people to enter this sport in a safe and responsible way and we encourage all riders to contact their club and learn how to partake in this sport correctly.’

The PW 50 is available from Yamaha dealers nationwide at €2,095. Get yours before they’re all gone!
