2020 YFZ50 The Yamaha’s new ATV range is back in 2020 with the YFZ50 and the Raptor 90. Here are the top 5 features and specifications for the top 2020 Yamaha YFZ50 Youth ATV. The YFZ50 is the ideal starting point for aspiring ATV drivers aged 6 and over with a low-maintenance 49cc engine designed to develop an appealing and controllable performance. A combination of engine limiters and a power cut off tether switch makes it easy to allow young drivers to adapt to the ATV as their skills grow.
Maintenance is also easy, thanks to functions such as the toolless fast air filter element. The only front suspension is designed for lightweight, lightweight steering and comfortable ride quality. The rear swivel arm also features a compact single shock for good control and comfort. It also features comfortable features such as a fully automated CVT gearbox and an electric launch with a backup kickstart.
A sturdy steel frame design consists of a large 1.5-gallon fuel tank, plush seat, and spacious integrated floorboards. For sporty looks and handling, YFZ50 relies on durable Duro tires on lightweight wheels, with styling unmistakably inspired by the race-ready YFZ450R. For 2020 YFZ50, the Grizzly family is excited about a brand new Special Edition (SE) grizzly featuring exclusive 27-inch Maxxis ‘ Zilla tires and Yamaha’s award-winning engine tuned to dynamic recreational driving on the most challenging routes. Yamaha’s more utility-based ATVs include the Kodiak 700 and the Kodiak 450, while Yamaha’s sports ATV lineup again includes the Raptor 700R and YFZ450R, as well as the corresponding youth models, the Raptor 90 and YFZ50.

” The new GrizzlyTM 2020 YFZ50 Combines smooth, responsive and fast rotary power with increased mid-range and improved acceleration through a new six percent reduction in gearbox reduction. With less noise and vibration, the grizzly still offers an even sportier driving experience than ever before, thanks in part to improvements in Yamaha’s all-time best-selling, 700-class, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine.
In addition to the aforementioned features, the SE Grizzly features a new, aggressive look, lacquered bodywork and new 14-inch two-ton aluminum wheels for increased ground clearance and greater gauge. All Grizzly models for 2020 YFZ50 will also receive a new line with a redesigned gauge, a pre-installed two-inch towing receiver, the Yamaha-tested Ultramatic®, the On-Command® 2WD / 4WD and the Electric Power Steering (EPS).
To help young beginners become savvy ATV drivers, the YFZ50 has a two-stage speed limiter as well as a throttle flaps to limit engine performance and adapt to the rider’s advancing capabilities. A rousing switch allows parents to closely monitor new drivers and reduce performance to the engine if needed, while new drivers learn the basics of ATV control.
