YAMAHA 2019 2-STROKES: A POWERVALVE YZ85!

New 2019 YZ85

The 2019 Yamaha YZ85.

The new 2019 YZ85 youth motocross bike arrives with major redesigns purely focused on performance. Featuring an all-new engine, suspension, and more, the YZ85 is designed to provide Yamaha bLU cRU riders with race-winning performance and unrivaled reliability.

The new YZ85 motor has a mechanical powervalve, similar to the design used on the YZ125 and YZ250.

All-New Engine
A newly-designed 85cc liquid-cooled 2-stroke engine featuring a case reed-valve intake and a mechanical Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS) 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.

A four petal case-reed is used on the new 85 motor.

Updated Chassis and Optimized Ergonomics
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, comfortable 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.

A new chassis is also in store for Yamaha’s mini MXers.

Updated Brake System
For 2019, 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.

The fork is a coil-spring KYB with adjustable rebound and compression damping.

Easily Tuned KYB® Coil Spring Suspension
The new YZ85 features KYB®’s race-proven, fully adjustable 36mm coil spring fork with one-piece outer tubes and tapered shape to provide optimal rigidity balance. This provides exceptional handling, bump absorption and ease of set-up for race-winning performance. The KYB® fully adjustable link-type shock utilizes specially designed damping characteristics to match the new chassis.

Price, Color and Availability
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.
