The compact body design allows for a more comfortable knee grip and control sensation, while the smaller and lower seat allows the rider to move about more freely on the bike.
For race-winning handling performance, the industry-leading KYB® coil spring-type fork with speed-sensitive damping offers an excellent balance between handling and bump absorption. The KYB® shock with specially-tuned damping characteristics is used in the linkage type rear suspension to match the YZ450FX chassis with rear and front system settings for optimum GNCC® performance. With excellent stopping power and controllability, the large 270mm front disc brake and aggressive pad composition provide superb braking performance and machine control.

Yamaha’s integrated graphics are combined into the bodywork for long-term durability and resistance to peeling and damage.
New For 2021
New combustion chamber geometry with steeper valve angles, more aggressive cam profiles, a higher compression piston with low friction rings, a longer connecting rod, larger exhaust head pipe connector, a high flow air filter, a more efficient breather system, and more were added to the YZ450FX’s already powerful motor—all while fitting under a smaller and lighter frame.
The all-new flex characteristics of the YZ450FX aluminum frame provide riders with the ideal mix of precise cornering performance, traction, and bump stability. The 2021 YZ450FX raises rider confidence to new heights by fine-tuning the chassis rigidity balance with modifications to the lateral beams and engine cradle tube thickness, as well as the engine mounts, triple top clamp, and front axle.
To enhance cornering performance, traction, and bump absorption, the 2021 YZ450FX sports improved front and rear suspension that works in tandem with the new chassis. The rider can use the engine’s tremendous power with more confidence thanks to smoother chassis movement.
Redesigned pads and discs combine with a new, more robust front caliper and a smaller rear caliper to improve braking feel and controllability. The redesigned 240mm rear brake rotor conducts heat more effectively, resulting in more consistent performance while racing.
