Yamaha YZ 85



Yamaha the first YZ85 in 2001 as a model with the purpose of the YZ range of motocross machines. purpose was soon achieved as the quickly became one of the most “big” toys between who begin experiencing their bumps and corners.


The of Yamaha dirt bikes way back in 1851 with the of Torakusu Yamaha, who founded the Gakki Company in 1888. the company only produced instruments, after the Second War, the company President Kawakami decided to make use of a line and tooling that had been used to produce propellers to produce what was the of the Yamaha dirt bikes today. But from propellers to dirt bikes it was a long way and the company then separated Nippon Gakki Co. and became Motor Company, the real began and the first dirt like the YZ250 (1975) and (1998) started to exit the line and being shipped the world.

The model that we are referring to is not old, being first in 2002 but I made this history to understand where legacy comes from.

YZ85 was first produced in and it continued being produced important changes. The bike decals and that’s pretty all concerning its evolution.


the bike is very powerful more horses than the other Japanese manufacturers stay behind as they how important is for a rider to maintain a line during its riding and they have to be impressed from the start. In order to a certain clientele, Honda CR85R (probably the biggest for Yamaha), Suzuki entered the with its RM85 (a cheaper with much to offer) and presented us KX85 (an even bike with as much to as the Suzuki).


Yamaha provided the with a very sleek featuring beautiful motocross which give the bike’s look. But the most important when designing a motorcycle is maneuverability and rider comfort so oriented on widening the handlebars and the fuel tank which with the radiator shrouds, panels and rear fender rider with leverage of movement and weight transfer.

Test Drive

Heading the motocross circuit I was thinking I’m about to have a lot of fun this great, small and that I am going to push it to the max Don’t get me wrong! That’s what I did but I am wondering if the little won’t do the same because it right from the start as it was with the more experienced, aggressive rider in mind.

The motor which doesn’t a power valve produces a powerband that gets up and when kept on the pipe. power doesn’t surprises too but once the rpm begins to rise, things start to happen in and the YZ85 delivers a mid-range without match in its class.

I have to admit that I was about the bike’s aggressive (and I know that the of this bike will be but I have to say that it can become a difficult to handle for them. On the engine pulls hard in gear and is most at home revved to the max. Clutch is battery smooth and a slick-shifting can really keep this purring.

Suspension action on ends of the Yamaha YZ85 is Also designed with riders in mind, the inverted fork and single rear feel a little firm for or slower riders, but fast or aggressive riders will them.

The Yamaha is also a quick and can carve through the inside of any no matter how tight. Like the of the bikes in its class, the mini YZ is at speed and very predictable jumps. This is a very issue because the riders are to anticipate how the bike is about to act and to the necessary measures.

This them to gain confidence and experience.


This racer is being offered for a of $3,249 so that the parents have a heavy argument buying the motorcycle that guide their children’s step into championship-winnings.

Play time is over! The is just like Yamaha’s two-… MXers, only for the riders. It’s not playing!
