Combining class-leading performance and suspension with the smartphone Power Tuner app, the YZ450F is the bike of choice for race winners. Ride like a factory racer with the new Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition.
COMPACT REARWARD-SLANTED CYLINDER DESIGN
Featuring a distinct rearward-slanted cylinder design, the YZ450F’s light, compact engine is ideally positioned within the frame for optimized weight distribution. Internally, steep valve angles allow for an even straighter down-draft intake port. More aggressive cam profiles and larger diameter exhaust header joint work together with a higher compression bridge-box-design piston, DLC-coated piston pin and longer connecting rod to churn out a broad, usable powerband, all thoughtfully packaged to provide an exceptional level of chassis balance and control.
INNOVATIVE POWER TUNER APP
The free-of-charge 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.
LAUNCH CONTROL SYSTEM (LCS)
