ARVE Error: Mode: lazyload not available (ARVE Pro not active?), switching to normal mode
The YZ65 is Yamaha’s first new two-stroke in almost 20 years, and shows that there’s a growing commitment to the future of motocross coming out of Japan. It will feature a mechanical powervalve, a removable aluminum subframe and many other features that are normally associated with bigger MX bikes. The MSRP of the YZ65 will be $4599, which is around $500 less expensive than the KTM and Husqvarna models in that class, but $1000 more than the Kawasaki. Yamaha released this short video in advance of the official introduction of the bike on April 16, so come back to dirtbikemagazine.com for the first review of the bike.
