2024 YZ85 Promotions

Model Description

Victory. Never given, always earned

Many of today’s pro riders started their careers on the YZ85. And when you take a look at what this bike has to offer you can see why. Its high performance 85cc liquid-cooled 2-stroke engine is equipped with Yamaha’s race-bred YPVS that gives you holeshot-winning acceleration. And its adjustable suspension systems are built to master the toughest tracks.

The YZ85 also comes with a lightweight aluminium rear frame and aluminium swingarm, large diameter disc brakes and a high-efficiency air intake – just like the bigger YZ125. For maximum rider control there’s a flat seat, slim body, and an ergonomic fuel tank. And with a duo-tone Icon Blue color scheme and new graphics completing the looks, the YZ85 is ready to power you to the next level

Yamaha has been building championship winning 2-stroke motocross bikes for 50 years. Along the way we’ve won just about every title worth winning. The latest YZ85 comes with the same advanced race-bred technology that goes into the company’s adult motocross machines, and is ready to power you into the victorYZone.
