By providing the fun and exhilaration of lightweight, powerful two-strokes to the next generation, Yamaha aims to continue to play an integral role in developing young riders and building future champions.
The 2022 two-stroke YZs are highlighted by a new version of the race-bred YZ125. This marks the first full model change for the revered junior race model in more than 15 years and positions it back at the top of the 125cc two-stroke class by offering a blend of race-winning performance and real-world usability.
Features include a powerful new 125cc two-stroke engine, improved suspension, updated brakes, enhanced ergonomics, and new modern YZ styling. Yamaha’s flagship YZ250 two-stroke receives a number of enhancements and both models will also be available in Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition colours.
Other notable changes to Yamaha’s lineup of race-ready two strokes include an improved YZ85/LW model. Yamaha’s four-stroke MX models YZ250F and YZ450F receive lightened rear wheel and drivetrain assemblies to further improve their class leading handling.
And the MY22 YZ65 entry-level racer remains unchanged from MY21 except for updated Team Yamaha Blue embedded graphics with Ride Away Price of $6,699 available from July 2021.
