The mini motocrosser most riders will compete on before stepping up to one of our full-sized bikes, we wanted to make sure the MC 85 looks as good as it performs. Giving growing riders the space they need to easily and comfortably move around, the bike’s ergonomics help boost confidence. The striking red of the bike’s panels, and the high grip seat cover, certainly help the MC 85 stand out from the pack
As they charge harder, youngsters need to build their confidence, which is where the MC 85 frame comes into its own. With geometry that incorporates tailored flex, the frame moves in harmony with the suspension to effortlessly soak up bumps and ensure high-speed stability. Further assisting riders, the ‘no dirt’ footpegs prevent mud building up when riding through deep ruts, ensuring foot pegs return to their original position each and every time.
Make no mistake about it, the 85cc class is super competitive, which is why we’ve built a motor that delivers unrivalled performance using the latest 2-stroke technology. Featuring an innovative power valve to ensure a smooth spread of power across the full rev range, it’s a system that can be tailored simply and effectively.
Holeshots require late braking, deep into the first turn. Ensuring riders can be late on the brakes and still take the line they need, the MC 85 features 240mm front and 220mm rear wave disks and floating brake calipers from Formula. Together they deliver powerful braking, consistent pad wear and give riders complete confidence.
