    Improved suspension settings

    New lightweight chassis components

    Ultra-compact high-tech 450cc engine

    The YZ450F Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition’s reverse head 450cc engine is a proven MXGP race winner that has the performance to take the top step of the podium against the world’s best.

    Launch Control System

    The Launch Control System (LCS) on the YZ450F Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition optimizes 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 you greater controllability off the starting line and increases your holeshot-winning performance over and over again.

    Robust clutch and transmission

    The robust 5-speed transmission benefits from specially-developed gears with a large surface area – and together with a heavy-duty clutch this delivers high levels of durability. While for a positive feel when shifting gear, the shift drum and selectors are designed to give a short stroke.

    Lightweight aluminium beam frame

    In order to achieve the best balance of chassis strength and rigidity, the bilateral beam frame of the YZ450F Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition’ uses varying thicknesses of aluminium throughout its structure. The desired rigidity balance is also achieved by using a special combination of steel and aluminium engine mounts – for agile handling and precise cornering.

    Mass-centralized wraparound exhaust

    For enhanced mass-centralization the YZ450F Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition is fitted with a wraparound exhaust that snakes around the cylinder, and this design enables the fitment of a muffler that is mounted further forwards. Combined with the rearward-slanted cylinder, this design helps to keep weight close to the bike’s centre for light and agile nimble handling.

    YZ450F Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition riders can benefit from a smart piece of software that can give you a real advantage.
