Presented shortly after the RX, the new RX Arizona inaugurated a new category of enduro: the African bikes. A fashion inspired by the legendary Paris-Dakar which in 1985 would also see Aprilia propose the ETX-based Tuareg and Cagiva the Elefant based on Aletta Rossa.

The RX Arizona is therefore a motorbike similar to the RX, from which it differs only in one respect:

> 22-litre tank with a decal featuring an eagle and the stars and stripes flag that pays homage to the US state to which the Arizona is obviously dedicated.

> Adoption of Dakarian-style accessories: fork covers, hand guards, front brake disc covers, fork stanchion protection bellows, axle grille on front light and rear pannier.

The Arizona comes in two colours: black with black saddle and white with red saddle.

In addition to excellent commercial results, Arizona also achieved several sporting successes, winning the '85 Sardinia rally with Franco Monchiero.
