Engine

The new Yamaha YFZ450R 2018 Sports Quad Bike features the fuel-injected 449cc engine providing the best power characteristics. Its power delivery is smooth and strong with lots of midrange to top-end power. The engine features the new five-valve cylinder head and titanium valve technology, which is specially designed to deliver massive power in mid-range to top end. The high compression ratio further enhances the overall performance of engine. The all-new Yamaha Fuel Injection is best used for precise fuel delivery. Thanks to the bore of 42mm Mikuni throttle and 12-hole injector, this system offers an exceptional atomization of the fuel for maximum power. This new system also contains ISC (Idle Speed Control) for easy and reliable start-up and warming. An all-new assist and slipper clutch reduces the clutch lever effort for less fatigue while it also increases the clutch plate pressure for positive engagement. This clutch system also reduces the engine braking effect for faster cornering during downshifting. The new crankcase holds the crankshaft to handle increased demands of the racer as well as the counterbalancer to reduce vibration. This crankcase also contains the oil tank for mass centralization for better handling and easy maintenance like in 2017 Yamaha YFZ450R. The new camshafts have been entirely revised to maximize the engine’s impressive power output from off the line all the way up to the top end.
