2011 YAMAHA YFZ450R

2011 YAMAHA YFZ450R ($8599)

Yamaha started the 450 arms race with the YFZ back in 2004, then escalated it in 2009 with this aluminum-frame, EFI version that comes virtually race-ready. The YFZ450R is a full 50-inches wide and has suspension components that are as good as anything the aftermarket offers.
