Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., introduced several more of their 2016 motorcycles yesterday, including off-road playbikes, dual-sport models and scooters. The balance of the 2016 Yamaha motorcycle line-up will be introduced later this fall.
2016 Yamaha Off-Road Playbikes
Yamaha’s off-road playbikes are legendary for their versatility, durability, and easy-to-ride, low-maintenance features.
For 2016, the PW50 returns to continue its important mission to introduce young riders to the sport of motorcycling. The TT-R50E is also back with its convenient electric-start feature and auto-clutch transmission, as is the larger-capacity TT-R110E. All three bikes are the perfect starting point for young riders.
Big fun for the whole family, the YZ-styled, easy electric-start, four-stroke-powered TTR125LE begs to be ridden by everyone from bigger kids to adults, and returns for 2016.
A great choice for beginner and intermediate riders, the TT-R230 also returns for 2016, with its YZ-inspired handling and looks, stout 223cc engine, and handy electric start.
The 2016 PW50, TT-R50E, TT-R110E, TT-R125LE, and TT-R230 will each be available in Team Yamaha Blue/White.

2016 Yamaha Dual-Sport
The TW200 is known for its unique terrain-conquering tires, low seat height, electric starting, and on-/off-road capabilities. For 2016, the TW200 remains one of the most distinctive-looking dual-purpose motorcycles in the market. The 2016 TW200 will be available in Mineral Blue/White.
Also offered in Mineral Blue for 2016 is the fuel-injected XT250, with its long-travel suspension and powerful front and rear disc brakes for superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.
Descended from Yamaha’s YZ-F motocross bikesand off-road WR models, the dual-sport WR250R puts a little more emphasis on “sport.” The WR250R is the pefect choice for enthusiasts who want to continue riding when the road ends.
The 2016 TW200 will retail for $4,590 and arrive in dealerships beginning in October; the XT250 will retail for $5,190 and the WR250R will retail for $6,690, and both will arrive in dealerships beginning in September.
For fun and frugality, nothing beats Yamaha’s lineup of four-stroke scooters. For 2016, the Vino Classic returns with its 49cc, fuel-injected engine and a new Rosewood Brown color.
The Zuma 50F also returns for 2016, with its dirtbike-influenced styling, aggressive tires, and the triple-digit fuel economy of its thrifty 49cc four-stroke engine. The Zuma 50FX, which kicks things up a notch with its supersport-inspired colors and graphics, is also back for 2016. The Zuma 50F is available in either Raven or Vanilla White, while the Zuma 50FX is offered in Stardust Silver or Radical White.
The 155cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected 2016 Smax returns with its combination of fuel efficiency, excellent acceleration, and sporty power for commuting or riding on the highway, even with two riders on board. It will be available in Candy Red and Gun Metal Gray color schemes.
