One had expected that for a few years, but this time, it from now on is done! With a radical change of its large YZ-F for the year 2010, Yamaha had somewhat messed up the world of the whole ground while introducing on a motorcycle of great production a new driving concept: a one-cylinder reversed 4-time. It means with a frontal intake and one exhaust under the saddle. The whole is inclined towards the back for a centering of the masses moving.

But since then, it was the calm in the Blues, and so it is with the new Yamaha YZ450F 2014 that changes occurred. Yamaha retains the same mechanical design but brings it some updates including an escapement that toured the cylinder instead of curl under the saddle. On the side of the part-cycle things are also changing. The framework is altered in many places and the back loop no longer has anything to do with the previous version.

Yamaha YZ450F: More fluid, equally sober

All these changes also involve an overhaul of the design of the Blue, and it must be said that it is not displeasing to us. Although the Yamaha YZ450F 2014 retains a somewhat imposing appearance and is much less boorish than before, the general line gaining fluency.

The big Yam’ is rather sober visually – the white version remains topical – and does not suffer any reproach in terms of finishing. However, access to the tank now disconnecting a removable part of the saddle is not that wonder if this will remain practical when the mud is invited to the party. As the air filter cover, it allows easy access to the filter, and is a hair patch.

Yamaha YZ450F: A Chassis On a Great Way

Finished the theory, places at the practice with first of all a rather intuitive ergonomics. One will not seek his place long time by mounting a Yamaha YZ450F. The contour of the handlebar is pleasant and the orders fall perfectly in their place. Between the legs, the Blue one is refined, but there is well the feeling of being on one 450.

Early running at the Italian circuit of Ponte’s Ego-la, I had a little trouble finding my feet on the handlebars that Yamaha, mainly because of a fork worth tweaking. Opening the compression things are now become more pleasant. Nothing wrong with the shock which makes it his job perfectly and glue the rear wheel on the ground. With the Yamaha YZ450F, once found the right settings, it trajectory accurately.

With this new vintage, the Yamaha 4 – 4-stroke gains somewhat in handling, it is a little easier to position while retaining stability flawless. But I confess that I expect a behavior change a little radical pus. The Yamaha YZ450F in the fast reactions is healthy: be it by extending the breaks, by typing fort in holes, or not receiving short on the crest of a double, the bike cash without flinching.

Yamaha YZ450F: Overdose of power?

Engine side, we begin the day with the standard mapping. Well, that thrill to reassure the engine block of the Yamaha YZ450F 2014 is still raging. Even too much for the average biker can not be wrapped properly in the slow corners in second gear; the slightest gust of gas propels the bike. The accelerator is very difficult to manage and it is not uncommon to find much further than expected…

Fortunately, the magic of electronic injection will quickly make his work: a passage to the Yamaha staff, a much more flexible mapping, and the Yamaha YZ450F become a much more docile motorcycle! It is from this moment that it starts to have fun with the blue. Its engine with phenomenal force and well-rounded now lets us wrap without needing to restart the mechanics to the clutch.

The Yamaha is capable start from low revs and back gradually in the rounds without showing the slightest sign of weakness, any stroke piston, or valve timing during our test. And if asked, the Yamaha knows to lengthen. Need a certain time before raising a decrease in the performance of the mill! Side noise, if a point of given outside the Yamaha seems lower in tone, it is mainly aboard her that you appreciate the disappearance of the unpleasant noise of aspiration which came far resonate directly in the IUD pilot’s ears.

Assessment: A cross-country race for the strapping men

Much of the fifth generation of Yamaha YZ450F and suddenly we are still waiting a little hungry. But beware the work of the Blue is not in vain either. Without becoming a toy like a 250 4-stroke Yamaha wins maneuverability while maintaining the feeling of security when the rate rises it remains stuck on the ground. A little more comfort and escalation on the side of the fork would not too to accompany a nose wheel rather rigid but accurate.

The engine is a reference in terms of performance, but once again, it is too much for ordinary mortals. Do not pass through the ‘map change’ box would in our opinion an error in both the transition between the standard configuration and a gentler curve to the good on the ground. In short, the Yamaha is an elitist motorcycle not necessarily of any rest.

We had already remarked on the previous vintage; the Yamaha YZ450F of origin seems largely sized to align the national championship of a high level in Motocross and Supercross. Then remains to be seen if changes to this vintage 2014 do not go a little more salt addition of the YZ450F which is so far one of the most expensive bikes in the market.
