2019 Yamaha YZ65 Review

Age range from 7-12

The 2019 Yamaha YZ65 is a new model of dirt bike first produced in 2018. Before this, the most similar model was the Yamaha YZ60, produced in 1983. The more recent Yamaha range was missing a bike of this size (only having 50cc and 85cc bikes). 

The 2019 Yamaha YZ65 has the blue Yamaha colours. It’s a powerful little bike that handles well and has great suspension. This bike has a kick start system, but by this age, your child should be able to handle this themselves. 

The 2019 Yamaha YZ65 can easily be adapted to fit different sized children. It has adjustable clutch and brake lever positions, an adjustable handlebar clamp and a long seat. The engine of the 2019 Yamaha YZ65 is a newly designed engine for this bike. It has the same technologies you’ll find in the Yamaha YZ125 and Yamaha YZ250.
