Yamaha to release YZ450FX enduro racer for a limited time

On November 5, Yamaha Motor Company will be releasing its YZ450FX cross-country enduro model for off-road competitions available for a limited time.

On the same day, Yamaha will also be releasing their 2016 YZ250FX with updated graphics for a limited time. Reservations for both models will be accepted from October 7 to December 25, 2015.

The YZ450FX motorcycle is the fourth enduro model for the Japanese market. Based on the 2016 version of the YZ450F motocross racer, the YZ450FX was designed for cross-country enduro racing. It features an electric starter and main-switch-free electrical system for easier restarts during races. It also includes an exclusively tuned ECU and clutch as well as a wide-ratio five-speed transmission.

In addition, Yamaha has established an exclusively set-up YZ450F frame, front/rear suspension tuned for Japan, front/rear enduro tires (18-inch on the rear), aluminum side stand, plastic skid plate, and radiator fan.

Also, its GYTR Power Tuner allows for easier FI settings to match riding conditions and rider preferences.

The YZ450FX and the YZ250FX are available at Yamaha off-road competition model official retailers for 928,800 yen and 777,600 yen, respectively. Yamaha is expecting to sell a total of 300 units for both models.
