Features may include:
COMPACT REARWARD-SLANTED CYLINDER DESIGN
Featuring a distinct rearward-slanted cylinder design, the YZ450F’s light, compact engine is ideally positioned within the frame for optimized weight distribution. Internally, steep valve angles allow for an even straighter down-draft intake port. More aggressive cam profiles and larger diameter exhaust header joint work together with a higher compression bridge-box-design piston, DLC-coated piston pin and longer connecting rod to churn out a broad, usable powerband, all thoughtfully packaged to provide an exceptional level of chassis balance and control.
