2019 Yamaha YZ65 (2-STROKE)


Featuring an all-new engine, chassis, suspension, bodywork and more, the 2018 Yamaha YZ65 is designed to provide young riders with top-notch performance and reliability on the way to the victorYZone.


Engineers designed the 2018 YZ65 for kids stepping between 50 and 85 cc dirt bikes. Manageable power from the all-new 65 cc two-stroke engine, a miniaturized frame, smaller wheels (compared to the YZ85) and light overall weight are all features designed to allow youth riders to ride faster with confidence.


The YZ65's liquid-cooled, two-stroke, single-cylinder engine features the Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS), providing excellent power and torque characteristics. Based on the YZ85, the YZ65's engine has been thoroughly revised with a host of new components: piston and rings, exhaust pipe, intake manifold, reed valve, connecting rod and much more. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission with optimized gear ratios.


The all-new YZ65 draws upon Yamaha's decades of leading track performance and proven durability. Adjustable front and rear suspension, a tapered handlebar and YZ450F-inspired bodywork are just a few of the trickle-down highlights of the newest YZ model.
