2010 Yamaha lineup news

Radical, all-new 2010 YZ450F steals headlines with “reversed” engine, tornado exhaust, FI, and bilateral beam frame.

The motocross world is about to be turned upside down, and backwards (literally), with the release of the much anticipated 2010 Yamaha YZ450F. Credited with developing the first competitive four-stroke motocross bike—in both the 400 and 250 classes—Yamaha is proud to once again wear the hat of innovation.

Totally revamped for 2010, the YZ450F has received a laundry list of changes, beginning with the “reversed,” rear slanted, fuel-injected four-stroke engine. The FI throttle body and airbox are front mounted, while the exhaust exits from the rear of the cylinder. This design is used to centralize mass for excellent handling and a light feel.

The all-new “Tornado” design exhaust system exits from the rear of the cylinder and features a spiral winding of the header pipe. A power chamber is built into the header pipe to limit sound, and the entire system continues to centralize mass.

Like its little brother, the YZ250F, the 450F receives an all-new bilateral beam frame and sharp, new styling package as well. A unique incentive to the all-new 450F is the ability to optimize the power curve. For those who purchase a YZ450F before December 31, they’ll be given a “YZ Power Tuner” that allows for tailoring of FI settings and ignition mapping.

Yamaha didn’t forget the street, touring or four-wheeled enthusiasts either. For 2010, Yamaha welcomes aboard the all-new Stratoliner Deluxe. Based off the award winning, XV1900 Stratoliner platform, the Deluxe features a hard fairing with mini windshield, integrated speakers that are pre-wired for easy connection with an iPod, and colour matched hard saddlebags.

Also new for the street is the Valentino Rossi Replica YZF-R1. Complete with all of the great features of their standard R1, the Rossi Edition comes dressed just like “The Doctor’s” factory race bike.

Yamaha’s ATV lineup sees a host of changes. The all-new YFZ450X is a woods version of the 450R and has a narrower track chassis for better performance and confidence between the trees. On the utility side, Yamaha now offers GYPA kits (Explorer and Polar) for specific types of demand.

Get onto Yamaha-motor.ca today and find out the complete list of changes to see these and many more 2010 models!
