Features
Miscellaneous

Key Features:

  • Liquid-cooled, 85cc crankcase reed-valve inducted six-speed is light, compact and designed to deliver hard-hitting, moto-winning power throughout the rpm range.
  • Ultra-rigid, single backbone, semi-double cradle steel frame is lightweight and strong for sharp handling.
  • Fully adjustable suspension allows a broad adjustment range to suit everybody from rank novice to mini expert.

Engine:

  • 85cc liquid-cooled, crankcase reed-valve-inducted, two-stroke engine inhales through a 28mm Keihin flat-slide carburetor; seamless throttle response across the powerband is the result.
  • Digital CDI ignition system puts out a more precise spark and monitors engine speed to ensure optimal timing for quicker, stronger response during hard acceleration.
  • Smooth-shifting, six-speed close ratio transmission with heavy-duty, multiplate clutch delivers maximum hook-up for outstanding acceleration and corner-exiting power.
  • Involute spline set-up in clutch means smoother shifting under power with great durability at competition-level usage.
  • Two-piece clutch cover for easy access during maintenance.
  • Lightweight radiator has large cores and louvers, and the water pump features a cast aluminum impeller for maximum cooling efficiency.
  • Lightweight exhaust system design helps create a broader powerband with stronger low-end punch.
  • Airbox design ensures greater air cleaning performance and easier maintenance.

Chassis/Suspension:

  • Rear subframe is removable to allow easy maintenance.
  • Lightweight 36mm Kayaba inverted cartridge fork features 10.8 inches of travel with compression and rebound damping adjustability, and low-friction outer tubes and internals.
  • Rear suspension features fully adjustable Kayaba link-type shock with 11.1 inches of travel and race-tested compression damping valving.
  • 220mm front disc and 190mm rear disc brakes with stainless steel rotors deliver strong, precise stopping power.
  • Lightweight 17-inch front and 14-inch rear rims are durable and reduce unsprung weight for optimal suspension performance.
  • Dunlop knobbies for great traction on a variety of tracks and terrain.

Additional Features:

  • Wide handlebar and flat fuel tank, radiator shrouds, side panels and rear fender provide rider with leverage and freedom of movement and weight transfer.
  • Wide, footpegs are cleated to provide superb comfort, grip and ground clearance.
