FEATURES

Yamaha Off Road Motorcycles YZ450F Cyprus

Electronic launch control system (LCS)

For holeshot-winning performance the YZ450F is equipped with a sophisticated launch control system (LCS). Activated by a button, this performance-enhancing electronic system makes precise engine rpm adjustments in order to limit rear wheel spin and control wheelies when powering hard out of the start gate in 1st and 2nd gear.

Smooth and easy engine character

The YZ450F’s reverse 4-valve cylinder head is one of the most advanced designs in its class. For higher combustion efficiency the latest model benefits from optimized valve timing together with a high lift exhaust cam and special valve springs that deliver a smooth and easy engine character in the low to mid-speed range.

Refined clutch and shift mechanism

Important changes to the clutch and transmission are designed to reduce lap times by helping you to shift gear more quickly and efficiently. For fast and precise gear changes – even in high-pressure situations – the YZ450F features a super-smooth clutch boss as well as the latest design shift stopper lever.

Larger diameter 270mm front disc

Braking power is just as important as engine power when it comes to winning races, and the YZ450F is equipped with a larger diameter 270mm front disc brake. Fitted with specially designed pads, this highly efficient front brake design delivers greater levels of stopping power with accurate feel and precise control.

Enhanced control

The Air Oil Separate (AOS) front forks are amongst the best in the business, and for enhanced control and improved front wheel grip the latest YZ450F runs with optimized front suspension settings – while the Monocross rear suspension also features improvements that give more effective bump absorption and enhanced handling performance.

Refined chassis design

New triple clamps give a revised fork offset that contributes towards the good balance of handling performance and shock absorbing capability. Repositioned footrests lower the rider’s centre of gravity – and a wider swingarm pivot and steel engine mounts enhance the rigidity balance of the lightweight bilateral aluminium chassis.
