Yamaha’s engineers have over 40 years of technical knowledge – knowledge that has placed countless riders in the VictorYZone.

Those skills have been hard at work developing the first step on the bLU cRU ladder – the all new YZ65. Trust Yamaha to get the mix of performance and easy-ride characteristics just right. And trust our engineers to offer that mix with unparalleled durability and reliability.

Fitted with Yamaha’s YPVS system, this feisty two-stroke has heaps of easy-to-use torque. And handling is predictable and assured thanks to tried and tested chassis design and industry leading KYB suspension.

YZ65 offers all the fun, performance and dependability of Yamaha’s bigger YZs. It’s the first step on a long journey – a journey that will keep young guns with the bLU cRU and firmly within the VictorYZone.

All new 2-stroke engine

The 65cc two-stroke powerplant is all new for the YZ65, and features the same advanced technologies found in Yamaha's race-winning YZ125 and YZ250 motocrossers.

Compact steel frame

The YZ65 offers light, neutral handling built on an all-new steel cradle frame. Designed around the rigidity balance required for the 65cc class, this new frame delivers excellent grip feeling even across bumpy track surfaces, jump landings and whoop sections.

Yamaha Power Valve System

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.

All new suspension

Up front, a 36mm KYB fork offers unmatched compliance with settings based on Yamaha's extensive racing experience. Out back, a new link-less shock design is light and compact to suit the needs of 65cc-class riders, and acts through a new swingarm with YZ125-style chain adjusters. Both front and rear suspension systems are tunable for both rebound and compression damping.

Adjustable ergonomics

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.

Aggressive YZ styling

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.
