The 2015 Yamaha YZ85 is an exciting machine for mini bike pilots, as it has seen more updates this year than it has in the past decade. All-new bodywork graces the little blue bike and it now looks a lot like the full-sized Yamaha motocross bikes. The powerplant gained some additional top-end overrev, thanks to new intake and exhaust porting, and the clutch perch and lever are all new and adjustable on the fly. Black handlebars and brown-anodized triple clamps round out the aesthetic changes made to the machine, which is sure to be a popular choice among 85cc riders and racers.
