Key Features:

  • 49cc air-cooled single sends smooth, reliable four-stroke power through a fully automatic transmission—perfect for riders 6 years and older with adult supervision.
  • Easy, pushbutton electric start couldn’t be simpler.
  • Shaft drive is virtually maintenance-free and superior to the chain drives found on some competitive models.
  • Low 24.3-inch seat height for quick, balanced steering and rider confidence.
  • Large, class-leading fuel capacity — 1.8 gallons — increases range, which means less fill-ups and more fun out on the trail.

Engine:

  • 49cc air-cooled, SOHC four-stroke single low-maintenance, clean, reliable and quiet.
  • Automatic transmission lets the entry-level rider focus on the trail by eliminating the need to shift.
  • Adjustable throttle limiter allows a parent or adult supervisor to match the engine’s power output to the rider’s skill level, and an automatic-off lanyard with a 6-foot cord allows a parent or adult supervisor to instantly shut off the engine.
  • Rugged muffler with USFS-approved spark arrestor for quiet operation.
  • Automatic cam chain tensioner helps reduce the need for engine maintenance and extends engine life.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • Leading-arm front suspension with 2.3 inches of travel smooths out the trail for a comfortable ride and responsive steering.
  • Rear swingarm and a single rear shock with 2.2 inches of travel smooth over the rough stuff and aid traction.
  • Class-longest wheelbase of 40.6 inches helps accommodate a wide range of rider sizes. Roomier ergonomics mean your child won’t outgrow the Raptor 50 too soon.
  • 3.0 inches of ground clearance overcome common trail obstacles.
  • Fully sealed front and rear drum brakes keep out water and debris, providing strong, reliable stopping power.
  • Beefy 16x7-7 front and 16x8-7 rear knobby tires offer excellent traction and help boost ground clearance.

Additional Features:

  • Raptor 700R-style bodywork turns this entry-level machine into one wicked-looking ride.
  • Wide, cushy seat and appropriate-size handlebars ensure superb, all-day comfort and minimize fatigue.
  • Handlebar-mounted parking brake.
