Ready for a trio of new fun bikes? Here are Yamaha's 2011 TT-R machines. (Sorry, you'll have to wait a bit longer for the 2011 YZ models...well, outside of some sneak peek photos, anyway).

We've played on this trio of bikes, and they offer up lots of fun, and a great way to learn to ride.

Where's the 50cc model? According to Yamaha, "We are still making every effort to address the current CPSIA issue and hope that this model will return in the near future to the Yamaha line-up."
