Both Dirt Rider Magazine and Dirtbike Magazine have been out testing the all new 2016 Yamaha YZ450FX. Check out the vids here.
The 2016 Yamaha YZ450FX is one of the most talked-about new off-road models this season, and for great reason: this is an off-road variant of a shootout-winning motocross bike. Dirt Rider got a first chance to test the Yamaha late last week, and our initial impression is very positive. Given that there are a surprising number of changes to the YZ450FX’s engine, the revised transmission and power character make for an extremely versatile and capable off-road package. At the same time, Yamaha took to the suspension modifications with a light touch, revising the bike’s fork and shock just enough to make for a more off-road-oriented ride without sacrificing the raw performance of the MXer.
This bike features an 18 inch rear wheel, electric start, gold chain, black wheels, kick stand, wider ratio transmission and much more.
