2021 YAMAHA YFZ450R /YFZ450R SE
The YFZ450R is the most technologically advanced sport ATV on the market today, with a quick-revving, 449cc fuel-injected engine and titanium five-valve cylinder head delivering abundant power throughout the mid- to top-end, after the YFZ’s signature massive torque-feeling right off idle.
Built with pride at Yamaha’s U.S. factory in Newnan, Georgia and motocross-ready, the weldless professional-caliber frame is designed from lightweight aluminum with a tension-steel bottom frame allowing the engine to sit lower for excellent mass-centralization. Suspension components and settings further reduce weight while providing light, sharp handling and rider comfort.
Comfort and convenience are further enhanced with an assist-and-slipper clutch, reducing clutch lever effort for less fatigue, while also increasing clutch plate pressure and reducing engine braking for faster cornering, particularly while downshifting. Further improving lap times, the YFZ450R’s ergonomic bodywork allows the rider increased room to shift their weight in the corners and leverage the race-inspired padded seat to maximize traction and momentum. Riders can easily remove the no-tool body panels, quickly accessing key service areas without the need to remove the battery or other components.
