Yamasaki YM50/RE Review

Updated: May 22, 2021

Introduction


Today we are going to talk about the bike i learnt my trade on this is a the Yamasaki YM50 RE now in the UK there have been about 6 different models of this bike

1: Yamasaki ym50 2D

2: Yamasaki YM50 3D

3: Yamasaki YM50 GYS

4: Yamasaki YM50 D

5: Yamasaki YM50 scrambler

6: Yamasaki YM50 RE

now all of these have the same engine the 2d and the 3d have the same frame and the Yamasaki re is the newest model and that is what we are going to be talking about today so let's get into it


Yamasaki YM50 RE Intro

this bike was brought into the UK in early 2016 this was to replace the Yamasaki ym50-3d because the Yamasaki Ym50-3d wasn't going to be made euro 4 compliant so if we ordered any more in the UK they wouldn't pass the COC certification you need to get a bike =registered in the UK this is where the Yamasaki YM50 RE came in it came with some new features they were led front lights that can't be turned of an electronic carburation witch is the dell auto e carb system there was a couple of teething problems when they first came in but they have been getting steadily better with each order the main lights were failing on the first batch we had that sorted and there was a problem with the choke not engaging fully but this has also been remedied this is a £1699 and to some extent you get what you pay for they are not a £4300 Aprilia rs 50 but they cost half the price do you want to pay that much for a bike you are only going to be riding fro a year


style

This bike is loosely based on a Yamaha R3 and that is where the design of the plastic came from it comes with led lights all round and it has an analogue/digital mix dashboard the brake system on this bike is massively over the top but this is due to this bike being designed for a 350cc water-cooled engine it comes as a 50cc 125cc and 350cc


spec

engine: 139FMB-2this produces 3hp and 2.6np torque

frame: Tubular frame

Brakes: 2 hydraulic disks on the front 1 hydraulic discs on the back

wheels: 17inc cast alloy wheels

Tyres: 110 front 140 rear tyres

Carb: dell auto electronic carb

lights: Led all around


Summery

so should you buy one this bike is a mid-range bike for a 50cc with a lot of the spec of the higher end 50cc bikes now their purchase price is £1599 +£100 OTR for the standard for the Repsol bike it is £1799 + £100 OTR delivery mainland UK will be £100 with a fully insured courier this bike insurance is about £350 to £500 and the tax is £20 now you could go for the Aprilia which is £4300 OTR or the Yamasaki witch is half the price the bike is good as long as you keep it serviced and clean at 2000 mile you need to make sure the tappets are set correctly as they go tight over time but other than that there isn't anything on the market for anywhere need the price and quality of this bike PS{ don't buy the zorro it isn't a Yamasaki and come in boxes we do a lot on the PDI and they don't do anything }

you will have to look for a local Lex moto dealer and ask if they will do it

Great review Chris, maybe just use spell check once in a while, can’t wait for mine coming from biking direct, pity the courier if they have to drive the 387 miles in one go.
