Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team’s 2017 YZ450FM

Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP Team’s 2017 YZ450FM

The 2015 MXGP World Champion Romain Febvre and the 2014 MXGP vice-world champion Jeremy Van Horebeek will be lining up on Monster Energy Yamaha Factory MXGP YZ450FM’s in the premier class of the 2017 FIM Motocross World Championship MXGP.

After ten seasons in the MX1 class, the premier division of the FIM Motocross World Championship was converted to ‘MXGP’ in 2014 but essentially the technical regulations remained the same. The 2017 YZ450FM’s predecessor was a completely revised fifth generation of Yamaha’s flagship fuel-injected off-road motorcycle and the bike was one of the main protagonists in the nineteen round series that visits fifteen different countries. Thanks to the collected data from last season, the Yamaha premier class teams can come back even stronger this year.
