The objective of Project M85 was to create an Ultralight Freeride Motorcycle that bridges the gap between downhill mountain bikes and off-road motorcycles. Project M85 is designed to be most effective on tight technical single-track. It's combination of power and ultra-light weight, allows the bike to perform in ways that no mountain bike, or motorcycle, is currently capable of doing. The M85 is aimed at creating a new market segment in the motorcycle industry.
