The YZ450FX is a cutting edge weapon specially honed for the bush. It shares the revolutionary rearward-slanted cylinder design of our YZF/WR range and delivers a controllable, torquey power character with strong top-end power tuned specifically for enduro racing.
A YZ450F Bilateral Beam aluminium frame combines with industry-leading, KYB® twin chamber suspension to provide a shorter wheelbase and quicker steering experience to get through the trees – fast.
This model sports a powerful 270mm front brake for outstanding machine control, a model specific clutch system and new switch-free electric start.
All this plus an 18-inch rear wheel and XC racing tyres means the YZ450FX is ready to win straight from the crate.

Reverse Cylinder Head
YZ450F’s revolutionary rearward-slanted-cylinder design is an innovative approach to achieve unmatched mass centralisation. Concentrating the motorcycle’s heaviest components (engine mass, fuel tank, exhaust system, and airbox) toward the centre of the machine helps achieve superior, nimble handling.
Bilateral Beam Frame
The same Bilateral Beam frame that is found on the championship winning YZ450F is used on the new YZ450FX. It places the engine and fuel tank close to the centre mass of the bike for extremely light and nimble handling character.
A new layout for the fuel tank and air cleaner box gives the machine a slimmer feeling between the legs as well as position’s the fuel tank mass closer to the centre of the bike which improves handling feel. Furthermore, the air box can now be accessed with quick release fastners for easy serviceability of the large air cleaner element.
Large Diameter Front Brake
270mm front disc brake offers outstanding machine control and performance, with exceptional stopping power and controllability.
Optional Power Tuner
Optional accessory, GYTR Power Tuner lets bike tuners adjust air/fuel mixture and ignition timing maps to match engine performance characteristics to the rider and track conditions.
