2022 Yamaha YZ85
Built for fun. Built to win. The updated YZ85 serves up big-bike specs in a small-bike package. Featuring the Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS), fully-adjustable suspension, six-speed transmission and adjustable ergonomics, the 2022 YZ85 is ready to win races straight off the dealership floor.
Features may include:
The 85cc liquid-cooled, two-stroke engine features the Yamaha Power Valve System for broad power across the rev range without losing peak power at high rpms—improving rideability and reducing the need for frequent shifting.
For demanding junior racers the new YZ85 has been enhanced in several key chassis areas to optimize strength, rigidity and overall handling stability. Enhancements include the main frame, swingarm and rear wheel axle. The aluminum swingarm was redesigned to refine balance between longitudinal and torsional rigidity. A new removable rear subframe constructed from lightweight, high-strength aluminum reduces weight.
