Yamaha 2020 YZ85 Dirt Bike – Features and Price
The 85-cube liquid-cooled two-stroke engine features Yamaha’s throttle system, which provides a complete, controllable force over the entire rev range without losing peak power at high revs. The lightweight 36 mm inverted KYB inverted cassette fork features low-friction outer tubes, plenty of range of motion, and adjustable external compression. It also has rebound damping combined with a race-proven, fully adjustable rear shock absorber.
Yamaha 2020 YZ85 Dirt Bike has lightweight 17-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels. These wheels are durable and reduce unsprung weight for optimal suspension; large 220 mm and 190 mm disc brakes are used for precise steering. Dunlop MX3S buttons have an exceptional grip. Four-position adjustable handlebar mounts and a tapered style handlebar allow the occupant to adjust ergonomics to their size and preferences.
The 85-cube liquid-cooled two-stroke engine comes with a Yamaha’s throttle system. This system provides a complete, controllable power over the entire rev range without sacrificing peak power at high revs. It improves handling and reduces the need for frequent changes. The crankcase design has a septum-style reed valve inlet for better gas flow, which, when inhaled, passes through a 28 mm Keihin planar sliding carburetor for a smooth response of the gas lever.
Carefully matched to the YPVS engine, the exhaust chamber expansion chamber optimizes the gas flow for better power transmission, especially at low and medium levels. The gearbox has large gears to ensure better gear shifting and smoother gear changes. The lightweight radiator has large cores and closures, and the water pump has a cast aluminum (resin) impeller for maximum cooling. The design of the Airbox ensures excellent air purification and easy maintenance.
Chassis / Suspension
The lightweight 36mm inverted KYB inverted cassette fork has 10.8 inches of travel with compression and rebounds damping adjustability along with low friction outer tubing and inner parts. Damping settings offer better performance in different conditions and rider capabilities. The rear suspension features a fully adjustable Kayaba link-type shock absorber with 11.1-inch travel and a racing test check valve. The progressive link type design improves bottom resistance, allowing competitors to make loading more difficult and improve lap times.
The YZ85 modern swingarm has both a composite chain guide and push-style chain adjusters such as the YZ125 for easy maintenance. An all-new compact rear lower frame is removable for easy maintenance while the large wave-style brake discs provide better self-cleaning and cooler operation. The 220mm front and 190mm rear discs provide precise and robust stopping power. The lightweight 17-inch front and 14-inch rear wheels are durable and reduce unsprung weight for optimal suspension. Dunlop MX3S buttons offer exceptional grip on a variety of tracks and terrain.
Four-position adjustable handlebar mounts and a tapered style handlebar allow the occupant to adjust the position of the handlebar to their size and preferences. The new flat fuel tank, side panels, and rear fender ensure plenty of freedom of movement.
