The WR450F features a compact electric starter system to simplify restarts on the trail and add convenience everywhere else.
· Advanced Fuel Injection
The engine breathes through a 44 mm Mikuni throttle body fed by a high-pressure electric pump to ensure optimum fuel atomization and power for a wide range of riding elevations and conditions.
· Robust Transmission and Clutch
The WR450F’s wide-ratio 5-speed transmission provides the optimized gear for tight technical terrain as well as wide-open fire roads. The clutch system has a light pull with specific heat-resistant friction plates for tough enduro competition.
CHASSIS / SUSPENSION
· YZ450FX-Derived Bilateral Beam Frame
Yamaha’s refined aluminum frame provides high performance on technical, aggressive terrain sections as well as comfort for those long days in the saddle. Frame spars and engine mounts have been developed alongside the YZ450FX cross country racer to centralize mass for the best possible balance of bump absorption, stiffness and lightweight feeling.
· Compact Body and Seat Design
The WR450F features stylish bodywork from tip to tail, including a large 7.9-litre, mass-centralized fuel tank. The body design is narrow for more comfortable knee grip and control feeling while the seat gives the rider additional room to move aboard the machine. Even the rear fender is designed for added rigidity to make moving the machine easier.
· Class-Leading Suspension
The WR450F’s industry-leading, fully adjustable KYB coil spring-type fork with speed sensitive damping provides exceptional balance between handling and bump absorption. Settings are specifically tuned for enduro and to match the new frame.
· Enduro Wheels and Tires
The WR450F features an 18-inch rear wheel to help prevent pinch flats and provide additional comfort across rough terrain.
· Compact Headlight Unit
The WR450F’s headlight fairing and compact taillight unit centralize mass and improve the racy, agile styling of the machine.
· New Lighter Footpegs
Chromoly steel pegs from the YZ450F are 70 grams lighter than previous versions.
· Large Composite Engine Guard
Offers full coverage including radiator hose protection.
· Embedded Graphics
Yamaha’s unique embedded graphics are built into the bodywork for extended durability, resisting both peeling and damage.
