Race like the Yamaha factory team with your own Monster Energy-inspired; class-leading YZ450F.
Features may include:ENGINE
The YZ450F’s distinct rearward-slanted cylinder light and compact design are ideally positioned in the frame for optimized weight distribution. Inside; the head features steep valve angles to allow for an even straighter down-draft intake port; as well as more aggressive cam profiles and larger diameter exhaust header joint that work together with a higher compression bridge-box design piston; DLC-coated piston pin; and longer connecting rod to give YZ450F riders the best balance of class-leading power with an outstanding level of control.
The free of charge and industry-exclusive Yamaha Power Tuner app brings the power of the GYTR Power Tuner to your iOS® or Android® device. Using wireless connectivity to talk to the bike’s onboard CAN-bus network; the app allows owners to adjust air/fuel mixture and ignition timing maps to tune engine performance for track conditions; record race log information and monitor a range of data such as maintenance and system diagnosis; engine run time and more.
A handlebar-mounted map switch allows the rider to quickly select between preloaded engine maps—loaded and configured in the Power Tuner app—to account for changing track and weather conditions.CHASSIS/SUSPENSION
The YZ450F’s compact aluminum frame further refines the instinctive handling that makes this Yamaha one of the sharpest machines in its class. Every aspect has been carefully retuned; with thinner main spar construction; thicker down tubes; revised top triple clamp; and all-new motor mounts that work together to optimize overall rigidity balance for excellent handling; especially in fast; bumpy conditions.
The YZ450F features stylish bodywork from tip to tail; including a compact fuel tank specifically designed for motocross demands. The lower; forward-positioned handlebar position and the firmer seat assist the rider in keeping their weight forward during aggressive riding.
Industry-leading; fully adjustable KYB® coil spring-type fork with speed sensitive damping provides exceptional balance between handling and bump absorption. The linkage-type rear suspension features a KYB® shock with damping characteristics to match the YZ450F chassis.ADDITIONAL
The top triple clamp design balances rigidity for improved steering feel while the 4-position adjustable handlebar clamp is rubber-mounted for comfort; reduced handlebar vibration and easily tunable bar position.
Yamaha’s unique embedded graphics are built into the bodywork for extended durability; resisting both peeling and damage.
