A Keihin™ PE28 carburetor provides smooth throttle response and is designed for simplified maintenance.
The exhaust valves are made of aluminum to best match the expansion rate of the cylinder itself, improve sealing.
The RM85's exhaust valve governor and actuator helps provide good throttle response and overall tractability.
A digital CDI map helps provide strong engine performance at higher rpms.
The RM85 comes with a large-capacity radiator for efficient engine cooling.
Showa 37mm inverted front forks are completely adjustable for rider weight, style and ability. The forks feature a cartridge damping system with fully-adjustable rebound damping and 20-way adjustable compression damping (also included are fork guards to protect the inner fork tubes). The front forks offer 275mm (10.8-inches) of travel.
A Showa rear shock absorber, with large diameter shock body, is designed and properly valved to produce a plush feel and increase bottoming resistance. The Showa rear shock provides 277mm (10.9-inches) of wheel travel.
The RM85 comes with a twin-piston caliper front brake with 220mm (8.7-inches) large-diameter disc and a rear brake with 200mm (7.9-inches) disc to provide excellent braking performance.
The RM85 also comes with a light, narrow-diameter front and rear brake hose. The font brake hose is routed behind the fork leg, eliminating the need for a brake hose cover, which helps reduce weight.
A rigid rear brake caliper provides reliable braking performance, long pad life and is easy to maintain.
A plastic rear brake caliper guard reduces the possibility of deformation and saves weight as well.
The RM85's forged aluminum-alloy rear brake pedal gives the rider accurate braking feel.
The RM85's footpegs are made of cast chrome-molybdenum steel, instead of stamped steel, which makes them more durable with better grip.
A long clutch lever makes it easy to accurately locate and work the engagement point during starts and when clutching off at corners.
Each side of the RM85's seat has textured surface for better knee gripping.
The RM85's wheel sizes meet AMA 85cc class regulations (Front: 70/100-17; Rear: 90/100-14).
