Yamaha YZ450F for Sale at Blacktown Yamaha in Kings Park, NSW | Specifications and Review Information

For 2020 the all-new YZ450F comes with less weight, more power and sharper handling, making it the most competitive 450cc model that Yamaha has ever produced.

In order to create a motocross bike that can race and win at every level against the toughest opposition, Yamaha's engineers have analysed every single component and made a wide range of improvements.

As a result of this intensive part-by-part analysis the entire motorcycle has been subject to an extensive redesign, and the team of engineers has succeeded in achieving significant weight savings together with power gains and enhanced handling performance for the 2020 YZ450F.

UPRATED BRAKES

UPRATED BRAKES

A newly designed more rigid front caliper with progressive pad material and a larger contact patch works with revised, lighter 270 mm front disc for improved braking performance and modulation while a new lightweight rear caliper and new rear disc feature increased heat dissipation and reduce unsprung weight.

COMPACT ELECTRIC START

COMPACT ELECTRIC START

The new 450 engine is equipped with a compact and lightweight electric starter that gives push-button convenience and saves valuable seconds when restarting under pressure during a race. Powered by a high capacity four-cell lithium-ion battery, it keeps the 2020 YZ450F's weight down to a minimum.

ADJUSTABLE MAPPING SWITCH

ADJUSTABLE MAPPING SWITCH

After pre-programming the 2020 YZ450F, there's a handlebar-mounted mapping switch (blue button) that enables the rider to select one of two maps on the fly. This simple adjustment allows instant mapping changes to suit changing track or weather conditions, from a super-aggressive map for fast dry tracks to a more useable map on muddy surfaces.

INDUSTRY LEADING SUSPENSION

INDUSTRY LEADING SUSPENSION

The industry-leading, fully adjustable KYB® spring-type fork suspension with speed sensitive damping provides exceptional balance between handling and bump absorption for race-winning performance. In addition to new settings, cylinder diameter is up 1 mm to increase rigidity and the mid-speed valve is has changed from coil to leaf spring for improved oil flow and damping.

LAUNCH CONTROL SYSTEM

LAUNCH CONTROL SYSTEM

The YZ450F's Launch Control System (LCS) optimises the engine's power output and running characteristics during the first few seconds of the race after the gate drops. By helping to transmit power more efficiently, the LCS gives greater controllability and traction off the line, increasing the rider's holeshot-winning performance and giving a real advantage in the crucial charge to the first corner.

LIGHT ALUMINIUM FRAME

LIGHT ALUMINIUM FRAME

To reduce weight and fine tune the bike's instinctive handling performance, the new bilateral frame features thinner main spars together with thicker bottom tubes and new engine mounts. These significant changes - together with the mass centralised design and class-leading suspension - help to deliver even sharper handling for reduced lap times.

YAMAHA SMARTPHONE TUNING

YAMAHA SMARTPHONE TUNING

By downloading the free Power Tuner app for IOS or Android devices, YZ450F riders or mechanics can easily adjust the fuel/air mix and ignition timing to set the bike up for different tracks and changing riding conditions. This feature makes the 2020 YZ450F the most adaptable motocross machine that can be tuned instantly at the trackside, enabling its rider to master a wide range of surfaces and weather conditions.

MORE POWERFUL AND COMPACT ENGINE

MORE POWERFUL AND COMPACT ENGINE

Already renowned for its enormous power output, the YZ450F engine has been thoroughly redesigned for 2020 to deliver stronger and more controllable performance. The new engine is significantly more compact and lighter, and the revised configuration enhances the bike's mass centralised design to make it one of the easiest-handling open class motocross machines.
