* All-new from the ground up, Raptor 90 has the features to deliver more fun than ever before, with a new 88cc SOHC 2-valve engine tuned to develop excellent low-to-mid rpm range performance. It also has features surprising in this class and price range, like a fully automatic CVT transmission, dual A-arm front suspension, rear disc brake, low-profi le tires, and styling unmistakably inspired by the mighty Raptor 700R.
* Dual A-arm front suspension has 4.4-inches of travel for sporty-riding comfort, while adding to the Raptor 90’s big-ATV look. Shocks have 5-way preload adjustment to accommodate a variety of riders and terrain. The rear swingarm, also 5-way preload adjustable, offers 3.3-inches of travel.
* For sporty looks and handling, Raptor 90 uses low-profile Maxxis® tires. For riding comfort, there are aggressive-looking full floorboards.
* For strong, reliable stopping power, there’s a hydraulic disc brake with drilled rotor in the back, and dual sealed drums in the front.
* Restricting power output for learning riders is exceptionally convenient; there’s a simple plug-in for the CDI unit.
* Available in Team Yamaha Blue/White, just like full-size ATVs, or in an exclusive Black/White version with two graphics choices young riders will love.

I really like the independent front suspension, the old ones had a solid swing arm on the front :eyebrow:

Very nice 90. Electric start, an actual speed limiter, disc brakes. Much nicer than the Honda 90 my son started on a few years ago. Makes me want to have another child. Well maybe not but it is a nice quad.

Now my 5yr old wants one and wants to get rid of his LT80. LOL so looks like in a couple years I may have a little Raptor 90 for sale so he can move up to a Rappy 250. He wants the one with flames. I think my boys are expensive. LOL But they are worth it.

Can we run headlights on the 90 ? I would like to put headlights on it, does anyone know what options are available?

Well we decided against getting the youngest the 90 for the plain and simple reason of it not being set up the same as it's bigger brothers. The rear brake is on the handlebars ONLY, unlike the bigger bikes and his current LT which has a rear brake pedal that he uses all the time. So if your kid is used to older mini sportbike set ups do take that into consideration.

I went to the dealer to check it out and the suspension seemed very stiff for me and I weigh 200lbs. I am dissapointed that it does not have reverse or headlights. It does seem like a great machine otherwise just a few details could make it better. I am going to buy my 9 year old a new machine this spring so I have started scrutinizing the offerings. I am glad we are getting some real feedback on this site.

When I got mine the suspension was set to the stiffest setting, so I had to adjust it a bit. No real complaints now other than it doesn't handle as well as my 700 :)

I looked at a lot of mini quads before finally deciding on the Raptor. The big things for me were ease of use, appearance and price. For those 3 things there was no option better than the Raptor 90 for me. You may want to look into the E-Ton's if you really want reverse and lights as they have a few models that have those. Plus, the Raptor 90 actually uses some parts from the E-Ton as well, so you know it has to be good ;)

Whats everyones thoughts as far as age and weight on a raptor 90? I have a friend that wants to get her 4.5 yr old son a mini rappy for this christmas. He is a bigger kid weighing at around 85-90 lbs. Do you think a 90 would be good for him or look toward an older 80 or even a 50 :cunfuz:

thanks :beerchug:

I think the Raptor 90 would be a great choice, very easy to ride and it has an ignition limiter to keep it from going too fast until they're ready!

And it will last quite awhile because I am 220 lbs. and it has plenty of power for me to have fun on:thumb:

Here is a vid of my daughter who just turned 8 at the time and was about 60 lbs. riding it:
