An award-winning bike that offers no compromises; that’s what the Yamaha YZ450F offers - and a whole lot more.
Fresh off of improvements across the board, the new YZ450F will come with a host of beefy upgrades, including new design elements, improved powertrain, and overall better handling.
These changes fit right in with the lofty standards set by the models predecessor, the 2010 YZ450F , which won a plethora of awards including Dirt Rider Magazine’s “Bike of the Year”, Cycle World’s “Best Motocrosser”, and Motorcycle Magazine’s “Best Dirtbike of 2010.”
Yet despite all of its accolades, Yamaha still saw fit to give the YZ450F improvements, further proving that a great bike should not be satisfied with itself. Whenever there’s a time that awards come, they should not be looked as validation for greatness, but motivation to maintain their status as the best.
For their part, Yamaha has the right frame of mind with the YZ450F. It’s a good enough bike to merit some distinctions, but at the end of the day, ’good enough’ should never be associated with status quo.
