The WR450F was first brought to market 20 years ago, and over the years it became one of the leading enduro motorcycles. So what’s new in the model of 2019?


It still relates to a sports enduro segment, made to overcome off-road as fast as possible. The 2018 bike was one of the regular winners at the FIM Enduro World Championship with Jamie McCanney in Enduro 1 and LoïcLarrieu in Enduro 2. A year before LoïcLarrieu brought Yamaha the victory at the 2017 FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE) in Brive, France.


Now modified Yamaha WR450F participates at the annual Dakar Rally, moreover Yamaha pilots show a stable pace and fight for the top three. Thanks to participating in the top competitions, Yamaha constantly improves the bike and makes it better for daily use.

The 2019 novelty becomes lighter, faster and more advanced.

The all-new 2019 model is directly based on the successful YZ450F platform. Plus it took some details, specially designed for the 2019 YZ450FX Cross Country bike.


A lightweight starter motor has been repositioned from the front of the engine to just behind the cylinder, contributing to mass centralization. The intake and exhaust systems, as well as fuel injection and ignition advance maps are tuned to provide the fast enduro rider with stronger and longer-lasting pulling power at high rpm.
