Designed for the discriminating mini-moto racer with dreams of victory. The YZ65 is the perfect first step into the victory zone.
Features may include:ENGINE
The 65cc two-stroke powerplant features the same advanced technologies found in Yamaha's race-winning YZ125 and YZ250 motocrossers.
With a carefully tuned Hitachi Astemo® Keihin PWK28 carburetor to meter fuel flow; the proven reed-valve induction improves acceleration and throttle response across the entire powerband.
Patented YPVS™ combines crisp bottom-end torque with potent mid-range and free-revving top-end; making the most of the compact engine and lightweight chassis.CHASSIS/SUSPENSION
The YZ65 offers light; neutral handling built on a strong steel cradle frame. Designed around the rigidity balance required for the 65cc class; this frame delivers excellent bump absorption in the roughest track sections; jump landings and whoop sections.
Removable aluminum rear subframe is constructed of square-section tubing for reduced weight and convenient maintenance; just like the full-size motocross bikes.
Up front; a 36mm KYB® coil spring fork offers excellent compliance with settings based on Yamaha’s extensive testing experience. Out back; a link-less shock design is light and compact and works through a swingarm with YZ125-style chain adjusters. Both front and rear suspension systems are tunable for both rebound and compression damping.ADDITIONAL
With a four-position adjustable aluminum handlebar clamp; adjustable position clutch and front brake levers; grippy foot pegs and long seat design to help riders move across the bike; the YZ65 is highly tunable to fit riders of various sizes.
The YZ65 may be the smallest member of the family; but it packs in the same aggressive styling as the larger YZ and YZ-F siblings. Even down to the slick blue Excel® wheels.
