Yamaha YFZ450R 2022 Sports ATV – Features and Price
The Yamaha YFZ450R 2022 Sports ATV has podium-winning DNA and a severe racing pedigree. It is the unrivaled, race-ready Sport ATV for those who want the next-level quad bikes to conquer new terrains. The YFZ450R is the most technologically advanced on the market today. It has a high-tech, quick-revving, titanium-valved 449cc fuel-injected engine and a lightweight, professional-caliber cast aluminum/steel chassis. Time and again, the power and chassis combination results in a championship-winning machine. The YFZ450R is built for motocross. The weldless frame is lightweight aluminum and features a tension-steel bottom frame that allows the engine to sit lower for better mass centralization. Suspension components and settings help reduce weight while still providing light, sharp handling and rider comfort.
Those who want to win should be identified. The bodywork is designed for excellent ergonomics and rider comfort with more room to hang off in the corners. The seat shape is amplified in just the right places and the body panels come off quickly without tools for service so the fenders can be removed without removing the battery or other components. The 449cc engine employs titanium five-valve cylinder head technology to deliver abundant power from the mid-range to the top-end with a more “hit” feeling. The higher compression ratio improves overall engine performance even more.
An all-new Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) is used on the YFZ450R to ensure precise fuel delivery. This system provides exceptional fuel atomization for maximum power, thanks to a large 42mm Mikuni throttle body and 12-hole injector. ISC (Idle Speed Control) comes as standard for simple, dependable start-up and warming. An assist-and-slipper clutch reduces clutch lever effort that results in less fatigue while increasing clutch plate pressure results in positive engagement. This clutch system also reduces engine braking for faster cornering especially when downshifting.
An all-new Yamaha YFZ450R 2022 Sports ATV has a 449cc fuel-injected engine that produces much power. The bike has an offline power delivery that is smooth and strong with plenty of mid-range and top-end pull. The 449cc engine features a five-valve cylinder head and titanium valve technology to deliver plenty of power from mid-range to top-end with more “hit” right off the start. The high compression ratio improves overall engine performance even more. Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) is used as standard equipment on the YFZ450R to ensure precise fuel delivery. The system provides exceptional fuel atomization for maximum power, thanks to a large 42mm Mikuni® throttle body and 12-hole injector. ISC (Idle Speed Control) comes standard to ensure simple, dependable start-up and warming.
An assist-and-slipper clutch reduces clutch lever effort that results in less fatigue while increasing clutch plate pressure results in positive engagement. The clutch system also reduces the engine braking effect that allows for faster cornering, especially when downshifting. The crankcase houses a crankshaft that is ready to handle the racer’s increased demands and a counterbalancer to reduce vibration. The oil tank is also contained in the crankcase which helps to centralize mass for superior handling while making maintenance easier. Camshafts have been revised to enhance the engine’s impressive power output from start-up to top-end.
An all-new Yamaha YFZ450R 2022 Sports ATV has a body configuration that gives the racer more room to move around during the moto. The seat is narrow in the front but wide and padded in the back to reduce fatigue. The inner lip of the bike’s wheels has been rolled in to increase rigidity, allowing for weight reduction while maintaining strength. The bike is suitable for great cornering speed. The wheels are set motocross-spec wide close to the allowable maximum of 50 inches. Maxxis® tires offer superior handling and control. They have greater ground clearance than the competition with 20 inches in the back and 21 inches in the front. The large-diameter tapered handlebar shrinks vibration and is supported by four-way clamps for maximum adjustability. The eccentric clamps and two holes in the handlebar crown allow the rider to select the standard-setting 10mm forward, 20mm ahead, or 10mm backward.
Every time riders want to get up on the pegs, they will appreciate the generous 2.6-inch-wide footpegs. Aluminum and steel are used to make the lightweight frame. The steel frame member beneath the engine is used for its strength and low profile that allow the engine to sit lower overall for excellent mass centralization and unrivaled handling. The bike is suitable for maximum durability. The brand new aluminum frame is bolted together rather than welded. At the A-arm mounting points, the front frame is as narrow as possible. It lengthens the A-arm and reduces camber changes as the suspension travels through its full range of motion.
The new front KYB® shocks are longer for increased stroke, excellent bump absorption, and anti-bottoming characteristics. The KashimaTM coating provides smooth operation and the 9.8-inch wheel travel means the racer is ready for the most challenging tracks. The bike is suitable for excellent handling. The bike has a rear swingarm made of robust and gravity-fed aluminum and is paired with a fully adjustable 46mm KYB® piggyback shock. The rear wheel features 11.0 inches of travel for comfort even on rough terrain.
An all-new Yamaha YFZ450R 2022 Sports ATV has a throttle lever that requires little effort and less fatigue during long rides. An LED on the fender in front of the rider provides vital indicators such as low fuel, check engine, coolant temperature, and neutral gear.
