Yamaha YZ85LW

Lightweight motocross racer

Running with high-tech chassis and engine designs, the YZ85 and the large-wheel YZ85LW 2-strokes are a top choice for tomorrow's pro riders. Designed to kick out holeshot-winning power, the free-revving 85cc liquid-cooled 2-stroke engine is one of the most advanced in its class.

Like our large-capacity race bikes, the YZ85/LW models are equipped with upside-down forks and a swingarm (link suspension) system for outstanding handling and steering qualities.

And with large-diameter front and rear discs, lightweight aluminium rims and hubs and slimline bodywork, Yamaha's YZ85/LW models are built for winners.
