Yamaha has just launched the Team Replica of the new YZ 450F, a notorious MX1 motorcycle in which’s seat David Philippaerts won the World Championship only a month ago.
This limited edition celebration model is destined to European motocross fans looking for a new kind of experience on a dirt bike. In order for their requirements to be accomplished, Yamaha Monster Motocross Team has teamed up with Yamaha Racing, the new model ending up featuring upgraded frame and motor compared to the simple version of this bike.
There are also many carbon fiber pieces which reduce the overall weight and also give a clue on this bike’s performance capabilities. The Kawasaki-like graphics stand as a reminder of actual race version and make the 2009 Yamaha YZF 450F Team Replica even more special.
Yamaha plans on making only 100 such bikes for the European market, something that makes them even more craved for.
