TUNE IN TO VICTORY
Class-leading performance and the industry's only free smartphone Power Tuner app make the YZ450F the bike of choice for race winners.
Features may include:
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.
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.
A handlebar-mounted map switch allows the rider to quickly select between preloaded engine maps—loaded and configured in the Power Tuner app—for on-the-fly adjustments to changing track and weather conditions.
An advanced aluminum bilateral beam frame features precisely tuned flex characteristics that give riders the ultimate combination of cornering performance; traction feel and bump stability. By tuning the rigidity balance of the chassis in concert with changes to the lateral beams; engine cradle tube thickness; engine mounting points and triple clamps; the 2022 YZ450F takes rider confidence to new levels.
THigh-spec 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's race-tuned chassis. Newly revised settings take full advantage of the lightened rear wheel assembly to further improve performance.
A large 270mm front rotor is coupled with a rigid caliper and aggressive pad material for excellent braking performance and machine control. Out back; the rear system sheds weight with a compact caliper and 240mm rear rotor for better heat dissipation.
The top triple clamp design balances rigidity for improved steering feel while the four-position adjustable handlebar clamp is rubber-mounted for comfort; reduced handlebar vibration and easily tunable bar position.
The YZ450F boasts top-spec details including 1-1/8-inch aluminum tapered handlebars; wide foot pegs; a quick-adjust clutch perch; stylish blue rims and a lightweight gold drive chain.
