New 2022 YZ450F
For the new 2022 YZ450F, Yamaha builds on the already class-leading performance of its flagship motocross machine by reducing unsprung weight through the adoption of a lighter rear wheel assembly and drive train parts, for more responsive handling.
Updates for 2022 begin with a new, redesigned rear wheel hub. The cast aluminium hub has been engineered to be thinner and lighter while maintaining strength. It combines with a redesigned lightweight rear sprocket and new lightweight drive chain to reduce unsprung weight and driveline inertia. The YZ450F also receives the newly introduced three-cross spoke pattern on the rear wheel for improved impact absorption and overall feel.
New, revised suspension settings take full advantage of the lightened rear wheel assembly, increasing stability on corner entry/exit, improving bump reaction and further enhancing best-in-class suspension performance.
Finally, a sharp new Yamaha Blue and dark blue graphics scheme adds a modern, aggressive style and features premium embedded graphics for excellent durability and scratch resistance.
Other features including the compact, powerful liquid-cooled 450cc four-stroke engine, finely tuned lightweight aluminium bilateral beam frame and high performance braking system all carry over from the class-leading 2021 YZ450F. Along with a host of advanced technical features the new YZ450F continues as the most complete, most well-balanced, most capable bike in the 450 class.
