This is the new Yamaha WR450F. Featuring an all-new tuneable fuel injection system, the proven WR-F’s 450cc 4-stroke liquid-cooled 5-valve engine now delivers even more responsive and adaptable performance to suit the wide range of conditions experienced by enduro riders. As well as the new fuel-injected engine, the 2012 WR450F runs with a compact new bilateral aluminium beam frame which brings new levels of agility to the 450 class.
Manufactured from a combination of forged, extruded and panel aluminium components, this innovative new lightweight frame has been constructed to 250-class dimensions, giving the quick-turning WR450F a real advantage in the tight corners and twisty woodland riding found in the typical enduro.
In addition to the uprated engine and new frame, the 2012 WR450F also features new slimline bodywork which underlines its 250-class dimensions – and with new black Excel rims, Pro-Taper bars and a new headlight cowl, this front-running E2 enduro machine comes with winning looks to back up its winning performance.
