Overview

Description

Redesigned from the ground up, the new YZ85 has been built to dominate the 85 cc class. Featuring a new engine with the Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS), new suspension, revised six-speed transmission and adjustable ergonomics, the 2019 YZ85 is ready to win races straight off the dealership floor.



Engine: For 2019, the YZ85's compact, lightweight 85 cc two-stroke engine features revisions to the intake, exhaust and transmission. The addition of YPVS creates broad, tractable power across the rev range without losing peak power at high rpm.



Chassis: A new front fork, new swingarm, new wave-style brake rotors and adjustable ergonomics complement the YZ85's semi-double-cradle, single-backbone steel frame and fully adjustable suspension.

  • Revised transmission
  • Adjustable rider ergonomics
  • New swingarm design
  • Upgraded brake line and wave-style rotors
  • New Dunlop MX3S tires
Key Features
  • Potent, easy-to-service two-stroke engine
  • Broad, tractable power across the rev range
  • Smooth-shifting, six-speed, close-ratio transmission
  • Compact, semi-double-cradle, single-backbone steel frame
  • Race-ready, fully adjustable suspension
  • Aggressive YZ styling
Engine Features
  • Lightweight, compact, 85cc, liquid-cooled, crankcase reed-valve inducted, 2-stroke single: Mechanical power valve system delivers effective exhaust timing throughout the entire rev range; Provides excellent power and torque characteristics; Boosts compression ratio and power output; Delivers responsive acceleration just as the rider intends; Slit-shaped valve on the side of the exhaust port operates in response to engine rpm; In low-to-mid-rpm range when exhaust timing is slower, valve moves to cover the top part of the exhaust port; In high rpm range when quick exhaust timing is needed, valve recedes and exhaust port is fully uncovered; Shifting is reduced due to broader powerband
  • Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS): Mechanical power valve system delivers effective exhaust timing throughout the entire rev range; Provides excellent power and torque characteristics; Boosts compression ratio and power output; Delivers responsive acceleration just as the rider intends; Slit-shaped valve on the side of the exhaust port operates in response to engine rpm; In low-to-mid-rpm range when exhaust timing is slower, valve moves to cover the top part of the exhaust port; In high rpm range when quick exhaust timing is needed, valve recedes and exhaust port is fully uncovered; Shifting is reduced due to broader powerband
  • Crankcase reed valve induction and 28 mm Keihin flat-slide carburetor: crisp, seamless throttle response across the powerband; new design features spacer-style reed valve intake for improved gas flow; Carburetor settings optimized for updated engine
  • Lightweight, forged piston: less reciprocating mass and less friction for a faster revving engine; excellent durability
  • CDI ignition system: provides a hot, precise spark for fast sure starts; provides optimal timing for quicker, stronger response at all rpms; maintenance-free
  • Smooth-shifting, six-speed transmission: involute design increases the surface area contact between the gears; special involute splines on main and drive shafts provide maximum engagement / hook-up for each gear for smoother, more positive shifts; gear ratios are well matched to engine output; Gear dimensions optimized for 2019 based on YPVS engine performance
  • Heavy-duty, multi-plate clutch: smooth positive shifting
  • Quick-remove, clutch sub-cover: fast, easy clutch access
  • Lightweight radiator with high-capacity cores and special louvers to direct the air through the rad: maximum cooling efficiency
  • Large-capacity airbox with washable, dual-stage, foam filter: excellent filtering qualities
  • reduced expenses
  • Lightweight exhaust system: revised expansion chamber matches the improved output of YPVS engine; aluminium silencer is re-packable to maintain optimum performance and reduced noise levels
  • Chassis/Suspension Features
    • Rigid, semi-double cradle, single backbone, steel frame: blend of light weight and good strength; minimal flex for razor-sharp, moto-wining handling
    • Detachable rear subframe: allows easy access for suspension maintenance; reduces costs in the event of a loop-out (subframe can be purchased separately)
    • Revised, lightweight box-section aluminium swingarm: composite chain guide and updated chain adjusters provide easier maintenance; provides excellent rear-wheel control and traction
    • Adjustable 36mm inverted KYB fork with 275 mm (10.8 in) of wheel travel: new low-friction outer tubes and internals are similar to full-size YZ models; 20 clicks of both compression and rebound damping; adjustable design allows suspension settings to match rider weight, rider style and track conditions; YZ125 / 250-based "big bike" valving and low-friction fork seals; smooth, compliant stroke for superior suspension performance and handling; front fork guard redesigned with brake hose outside of fork guard
    • Fully adjustable Monocross link rear suspension provides 282mm (11.1 in) of wheel travel: Kayaba piggyback shock reduces shock temperatures during a long moto for fade resistant damping and consistent performance.; adjustments include "threaded" spring preload, 15 clicks of compression and 20 clicks of rebound damping; optional shock springs are available through Yamaha Genuine Parts and Accessories
    • 220 mm front stainless steel wave front disc with twin-piston caliper: delivers strong stopping power with excellent control and great feedback.
    • New tapered aluminum handlebar and adjustable crown: Tapered handlebar
    • "Shorty-style" adjustable front brake lever: adjusts to fit various hand sizes
    • Clutch lever holder allows for clutch lever reach adjustment: adjusts to fit various hand sizes.
    • 190 mm stainless steel rear disc brake squeezed by a single piston caliper: Excellent stopping power; caliper is protected by a rugged plastic protector
    • Lightweight, blue 17-inch front and 14-inch rear DID rims: excellent durability; reduces unsprung weight for optimal suspension performance; new Dunlop MX3S knobby tires offer exceptional traction
    • Modern, aggressive, slim line bodywork: slim body design for excellent freedom of movement and rider mobility
