FIRST LOOK! 2019 YAMAHA YZ250, YZ125 & ALL-NEW YZ85
2019 YAMAHA YZ85
The new 2019 Yamaha YZ85 youth motocross bike arrives with major redesigns purely focused on performance. Featuring an all-new engine, suspension and more.
Yamaha focused its attention on the dated YZ85 engine and revamped it for 2019.
Engine: A newly-designed 85cc liquid-cooled two-stroke engine features a case reed-valve intake and a mechanical Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS) that lies at the heart of the 2019 YZ85. Combined with a redesigned cylinder and head, crankcase, crankshaft, connecting rod, transmission, exhaust and CDI unit, this new YZ engine provides broad, tractable power across the rev range without losing peak power at high RPM.
Chassis: The semi-double-cradle steel frame, removable subframe and redesigned aluminum swing-arm provide a nimble feel, confident handling and ease of maintenance. The ergonomics feature a flat seat, four-position adjustable aluminum tapered handlebars and adjustable-reach levers to provide comfort and ease of movement for a wide range of young rider sizes.
Brake system: A new, stiffer front brake line with new routing improves braking feel, while wave-style brake discs offer improved self-cleaning and cooler-running performance. The 220mm front disc and 190mm rear disc deliver strong, precise stopping power.
Suspension: The new YZ85 features KYB’s fully adjustable 36mm coil spring fork with one-piece outer tubes and tapered shape to provide optimal rigidity balance. The KYB fully adjustable link-type shock utilizes specially designed damping characteristics to match the new chassis.
The all-new 2019 YZ85 will be available in Team Yamaha Blue and will arrive at Yamaha dealers starting in June 2018, with a MSRP of $4,599.
