The 65cc two-stroke powerplant features the same advanced technologies found in Yamaha's race-winning YZ125 and YZ250 motocrossers.
The YZ65 offers light, neutral handling built on an steel cradle frame. Designed around the rigidity balance required for the 65cc class, this frame delivers excellent grip feeling even across bumpy track surfaces, jump landings and whoop sections.
Patented YPVS™ combines crisp bottom-end torque with potent midrange and free-revving top-end, making the most of the compact engine and lightweight chassis.
Up front, a 36mm KYB® fork offers unmatched compliance with settings based on Yamaha’s extensive racing experience. Out back, a link-less shock design is light and compact to suit the needs of 65cc-class riders, and acts through a swingarm with YZ125-style chain adjusters. Both front and rear suspension systems are tunable for both rebound and compression damping.
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.
The YZ65 is highly tunable to fit riders of various sizes, with a 4-position adjustable aluminium taper handlebar clamp, adjustable position clutch and front brake levers, grippy foot pegs, and long seat design to help riders move across the bike.
