    2024 YZ450F/SP

    The ultimate open class YZ
    YZ450F is the bike to beat in Australia with Dean Ferris leading the charge following Aaron Tanti's 2022 Pro MX title.

    Its reversed cylinder head layout, forged aluminium piston, 39 mm titanium valves, lightened crank assembly and dry sump lubrication contribute to a light, compact machine for incredibly broad pulling power across the entire rev range. Additional highlights of this model are: 

    Adjustable Traction and Launch Control 
    Running the same revised smartphone Power Tuner app as the MY24 YZ250F, the YZ450F also benefits from the Traction Control System that communicates wheel slip to the ECU, tuning the engine to maintain ideal rear wheel traction. Three levels can be selected: HIGH, LOW or OFF. The Launch Control System continues to implement traction control and features an rpm limiting setting, which can be adjusted in 500 rpm increments between 6000 rpm and 11,000 rpm. Both systems are controlled through the Yamaha Power Tuner App.

    Advanced aluminium bilateral beam frame 
    The precisely tuned aluminium bilateral beam frame provides just the right amount of strength and flex for the perfect balance of stability and cornering performance. The result is a better handling machine with lighter feel, more agility and increased traction allowing the rider to enter corners with greater confidence and more line choices.

    Class leading suspension 
    High-spec fully adjustable Speed Sensitive System KYB® coil spring-type fork provides exceptional bump absorption. The front fork also features toolless compression clickers for easy adjustment. The linkage-type rear suspension features a KYB® shock with revised damping characteristics to match the YZ450F's highly refined chassis. 

    High performance braking
    A large 270mm front brake rotor is coupled with a Nissin caliper to provide excellent braking performance. Out back, rear brake feel is improved by reducing the rigidity of the brake hose providing a wider range of control at the pedal. 

    Compact, lightweight clutch
    An advanced clutch design features a disc spring and integrates primary gear and basket into a single steel unit. The result is a more compact, lightweight and durable assembly which yields smoother engagement and excellent feel. Premium clutch cover employs a stylish geometric design that helps minimise scratching and lends a bold look. 

    Iconic heritage styling 
    In order to celebrate 50 years of winning YZs, YMA is pleased to announce the YZ450FSP 50th Anniversary Edition. This model draws its inspiration from 1990s-era Yamaha two-stroke motocrossers to honour 50 years of Yamaha off-road innovation.
