The YZ85LW (Large Wheel) model takes the race-winning YZ85 formula and enhances off-road capability even more with the addition of a larger 19-inch front wheel and 16-inch rear wheel wrapped in high performance Dunlop MX3S tyres.

Along with its proven liquid-cooled YPVS-equipped 85cc powerplant, fully adjustable suspension and large diameter brakes, the YZ85 rider ergonomics include a narrow tank design, flat seat, side covers and slim symmetrical radiator shrouds. This enables greater freedom of movement for smooth shifting of body weight and better machine control.


  • 85cc liquid-cooled, two-stroke engine
  • Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS) for broad tractable power across the rev range, without losing peak power at high rpm
  • Lightweight aluminium rear frame
  • Improved rider ergonomics
  • Fully adjustable front forks
  • Improved air intake
  • New rear brake system


YPVS 2-stroke engine

The 85cc liquid cooled engine features the Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS) that boosts overall performance and contributes towards the bike’s easy to use torque. Running with a high compression ratio – and equipped with a close ratio 6-speed transmission – the YZ85 delivers outstanding acceleration with race winning power.

Lightweight chassis design

Built for demanding junior racers, the YZ85LW's chassis is optimised for strength, rigidity and overall handling stability. The aluminium swingarm offers refined balance between longitudinal and torsional rigidity, and the removable rear subframe constructed from lightweight, high-strength aluminium reduces weight.

Fully adjustable front forks

The lightweight 36mm KYB® inverted cartridge fork features 275mm of travel with compression and rebound damping adjustability. Complete with low-friction outer tubes and internals, the damping settings offer enhanced performance across a range of conditions and rider abilities.

Adjustable rider ergonomics

The four-position adjustable handlebar mounts and taper-style handlebar allow the rider to tune the handlebar position to suit their size and preferences. Flat seat and narrow fuel tank design, along with smoothly integrated body panels and slim shroud width, combine to enable greater freedom of movement for increased control and confidence.

Advanced intake design

Advanced intake design allows for a straighter, more efficient draw of air into the intake tract. High-flow airbox ensures excellent air filter performance and easy maintenance.

Wave-style brake discs

Big 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. Rear brake master cylinder also includes built-in sub-reservoir to provide more linear brake response and increased control.
