Top Three Youth ATVs for the 2018 Holiday Season

Yamaha Adds More Options and Sizes for Young Riders During the Holidays

MARIETTA, Ga., Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, introduced the all-new Grizzly 90 this year, adding to its line of premier starter ATVs that would make an unforgettable holiday gift for entry-level riders. The Grizzly 90 is a confidence-inspiring recreational youth ATV for riders ages 10 and up, and it joined Yamaha’s two other youth ATVs – the sport-inspired Raptor 90 and YFZ50 – providing more options and excitement for the holidays.

All-new for 2019, the Grizzly 90 delivers the Proven Off-Road performance and versatility of its namesake to new riders with features including mud-protection fenders, trail-pointed comfort suspension, front and rear cargo racks, and new Grizzly-tread tires. The New Grizzly 90 is available in Yamaha Blue ($2,999 MSRP).

For young riders inspired by Yamaha’s legendary racing heritage, the Raptor 90’s sporty styling brings Yamaha’s sport ATV performance, legacy and quality to the next generation of budding motorsports enthusiasts ages 10 and up. For younger riders ages six and up, the YFZ50 features additional training tools, including a tether switch capable of shutting off the engine from a pull-string if or when needed. The 2019 Raptor 90 ($2,899 MSRP) and YFZ50 ($2,099 MSRP) are available in either Team Yamaha Blue or White.

“Yamaha’s youth ATVs are designed to be a fun and exciting experience for growing riders, while maintaining parents’ peace of mind with Real World Tech safety features, such as speed limiters and adjustable throttles,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s motorsports group marketing manager. “These youth ATVs make for the perfect present for every motorsports family, accompanied by any Yamaha from our Proven Off-Road lineup, such as the YXZ1000R or Wolverine X2, as the ultimate gift for mom and dad.”
