- Larger Front & Rear Wheel
The YZ85 Large Wheel (LW) model raises the bar for off-road capability with a larger 19-inch front wheel and 16-inch rear wheel clad in high performance 70/100/19 front and 90/100/16 rear Dunlop® MX3S tires. Perfect for the advanced 85cc rider looking for a more “big-bike” feel.
- YPVS™ Two-Stroke Power
The 85cc liquid-cooled, two-stroke engine features the Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS™) for increased low- and mid-range power without losing peak power at high rpms, reducing the need for frequent shifting.
- Fully-Adjustable Suspension
Lightweight 36mm KYB® inverted cartridge fork features low-friction outer tubes, external compression and rebound damping adjustability, paired with a race-proven fully-adjustable KYB® rear shock. Both offer loads of suspension travel to tackle serious off-road competition.
- Optimized Chassis Design
Built for demanding junior racers, the YZ85 LW’s chassis is optimized for strength, rigidity and overall handling stability. The aluminum swingarm offers refined balance between longitudinal and torsional rigidity, and the removable rear subframe constructed from lightweight, high-strength aluminum reduces weight.
- Performance-Minded Ergonomics
The flat seat and narrow fuel tank design, along with smoothly integrated body panels and slim shroud width, combine to enable greater freedom of movement forward and back, allowing the rider to easily shift body weight for increased control and confidence.
- High-Quality Embedded Graphics
Inspired by its YZ125 sibling, the aggressive graphics scheme highlights the YZ’s unmatched racing pedigree. Premium Yamaha Blue and dark blue graphics are embedded to provide excellent durability and scratch resistance.
- High-Spec Wheels & Brakes
Stylish blue, lightweight 19-inch front and 16-inch rear rims are durable, reduce unsprung weight for optimal suspension performance, and come wrapped in Dunlop® MX3S tires for exceptional traction. Big 220mm and 190mm disc brakes offer precise control and outstanding stopping power.
