Talking Just picked up a new Yamaha... TTR50

A new TTR50

I was bored so I wandered into a Yamaha dealer and I saw this bike and I couldn't resist. It fits right in my truck and it's a blast to ride. It's a 50cc 4-stroke with a 3-speed. Really fun bike!

Thanks guys - yeah, it's only 50cc. It's a tiny bike, but that's why I wanted it. It rolls right into my Blazer, so I can take it anywhere without a trailer. It's a motocross bike, but you can also buy street tires for it and even a light kit to make it street legal. Yamaha sells many upgrades for it - larger swingarms, big bore kits, handlebars, etc.

I was riding it around my streets and it was tons of fun. It will run about 40mph without any mods, and it will run offroad and jump very well too. It even has electric starting!

I bought this as a brand new for $1100US, which I think is pretty cheap.

Very Nice looking Bike !! The exhaust looks nice.

At $ 1100 it's a good bike.

50cc - that's it ??

Wonder why we do not have this kind in India - after all we have loads of potholes and this bike looks good for it And the price and cubic capacity also is very Indian !! Yamaha you listening ??

It's very small - the wheelbase is 94cm. Very small, but that's what makes it so fun!

Yamaha GTYR makes an 84cc big bore kit and a stainless high-flow exhaust, which I may get. That's supposed to give this a top speed of up to 60mph.

Congratulations on your purchase mate. That's a real nice one, looks lovely in YAMAHA colours.

Can we get a photograph with you astride the bike, or someone modelling on it, just to get the size of the bike into perspective.

Trail bikes are very grown up bikes, and they're akin to a horse, sometimes taller than your shoulders

Congrats man! It would be one fun ride to have.
Lucky you can just walk in and get one when you are bored.
Here its the other way around, you get bored when you walk in to the showroom!

Thanks everyone. I'm away from home now so I can't take any photos, but I found these on the web. The first one shows two TTR 50 bikes in front of the full size bikes for comparison. The second photo shows the size of the bike with an adult racing it. It's actually very comfortable even though very small.

Somebody BAN this guy. LOL.

He keeps driving me to the brink of jealousy

Awesome looking bike. Would be fun to go trail riding on this. If there is an obstacle that can't be passed. Pick it up and plonk it on the other side. I am guessing it must be quite light in weight.
