NEW FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM

The WR450F benefits from a compact new fuel injection system which makes for enhanced engine performance. By monitoring sensors which detect throttle position, intake temperature, air pressure, crank rpm and coolant temperature, the ECU is able to constantly adjust fuel volume and ignition timing to achieve optimal engine efficiency.

NEW ALL-ALUMINIUM BILATERAL BEAM FRAME

Unlike some conventional designs, the WR450F’s new bilateral beam frame is manufactured from a unique combination of forged, extruded and panel aluminium parts which are welded together to create a unit offering an idealised balance of rigidity. This gives excellent rider feedback combined with superior handling performance.

250-CLASS DIMENSIONS

The new lightweight chassis has been developed directly from Yamaha’s MXGP-winning YZ250F. Featuring a short 1,475mm wheelbase and compact dimensions, this new 250-class design gives quicker turning and improved agility – and its special bilateral design allows the relocation of the fuel tank and radiators for a greater centralisation of mass.

With its new fuel injected engine and compact chassis, the WR450F adds an exciting new dimension to the E2 class. Complementing the new bilateral beam frame is a slimline 7.2 litre fuel tank with YZF-type sidepanels, as well as a lower 960mm high seat.
