So, I’ve got a special treat for you today! The glorious Yamaha DT!
It has a huge 50cc 2-stroke engine, 6 speed gearbox and a top speed of a whopping 55km/h. Even winds contribute to the acceleration and top speed of this beast.
It weighs in at about 100 kg and has great acceleration off the line, it can reach 0-40km/h in 4 seconds, which, to be honest, isn’t that bad.
I’ve had my fair share of falling over with it, especially during the winter. It’s slippery to drive a 2-wheel vehicle during that time. But winters have their bright side, too, you can drift with this thing if you know how. It’s quite fun.
I’ve humorously been calling the speedometer of this thing a “christmas light”, thanks to its many bright and colourful lights.
Some specs that I know:
Engine type: 2-Stroke
Engine capacity: 50cc (0,05 litre)
Max power: 2,1KW@ 6,750rpm
Max torque: 3.3Nm @ 5,250rpm
Compression ratio: 12 : 1
Fuel injection: 1B Carburettor (Dell’Orto PHBN 16)
Fuel economy: About 5l/100km (56mpg)
Thank you for having interest in a vehicle that endangers everything around it. (Thanks to my driving style )
