Yamaha YZ85 YPVS 2-Stroke Design


The 85cc liquid cooled engine features the Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS) that boosts overall performance and contributes towards the bike's easy to use torque. Running with a high compression ratio - and equipped with a close ratio 6-speed transmission - the YZ85 delivers outstanding acceleration with race winning power.

Yamaha YZ85 Lightweight Chassis Design


Built for demanding junior racers, the YZ85's chassis is optimised for strength, rigidity and overall handling stability. The aluminium swingarm offers refined balance between longitudinal and torsional rigidity, and the removable rear subframe constructed from lightweight, high-strength aluminium reduces weight.

Yamaha YZ85 Adjustable Rider Ergonomics


The four-position adjustable handlebar mounts and taper-style handlebar allow the rider to tune the handlebar position to suit their size and preferences. Flat seat and narrow fuel tank design, along with smoothly integrated body panels and slim shroud width, combine to enable greater freedom of movement for increased control and confidence.

Advanced intake design allows for a straighter, more efficient draw of air into the intake tract. High-flow airbox ensures excellent air filter performance and easy maintenance.
