2023 YZ85

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.
