Upper frame bracing provides rigidity and durability, while rear frame spars and cross-country-tuned engine mounts centralize mass for the best possible balance of bump absorption, stiffness and rider feeling.
- Compact Body and Seat Design
The YZ450FX features stylish bodywork from tip to tail, including a large 2.15 gallon, mass-centralized fuel tank. The body design is narrow for more comfortable knee grip and control feeling, while the narrower and lower seat gives the rider additional room to move aboard the machine.ADDITIONAL
