2015 Yamaha YZ85 | YZ125 | YZ250 First Look

Thursday, June 5, 2014

Not all motocross riders are created equal. That’s why Yamaha continues to offer its YZ-line of two-stroke dirt bikes. And for 2015 the entire line-up gets a facelift.

YZ125 and YZ250

It’s certainly been a while since the YZ’s have gotten any serious design love in Japan. But this season sees both models upgraded with all-new bodywork. From the tip to tail, all the plastic are new, including the airbox. The change was made in an effort to give the YZs more modern appearance. But that’s not all, both the YZ125 and YZ250 get a new triple clamp, rear sprocket and footpegs. Both models arrive at U.S. dealers this August with the 125 carrying a price of $6390 and the 250 at $7290.


This Fall the YZ85 gets a similar treatment sporting new plastics, triple clamps, handlebar, and an adjustable clutch lever so rider’s can make tweak the feel of the clutch during their moto. It also receives a mechanical update in the form of updated intake and exhaust port timing. The 2015 YZ85 will be priced at $4090.

I think it's great that Yamaha still make 2 strokes, but why don't they put some serious R&D into it. They could at least give it a newer generation frame like the 4 strokes.
