2024 Yamaha WR450F: MASTER OF ALL TRADES.


Introducing the new 2024 Yamaha WR450F…
The new 2024 WR450F is the lightest, slimmest and fastest 450cc enduro bike that Yamaha has ever built. Based closely on the new-generation YZ450F motocross machine that has shown its winning potential in MXGP and AMA Supercross, the next generation WR450F delivers highly controllable performance, easily tuneable power and next level agility.
Styling is radically updated on this new enduro bike, with the super compact bodywork coming from the latest YZ450F which has already received widespread acclaim for its high levels of agility. The 2024 WR450F benefits from many design changes and enduro-specific settings – including a revised ECU with refined FI mapping, revised chassis rigidity and WR suspension settings with a lower ride height – as well as a larger fuel tank and full enduro-ready specification.
For 2024 the new WR450F benefits from the very latest engine and chassis technology from the race winning YZ450F. The combination of a stronger engine and redesigned lightweight chassis with compact bodywork make this the best-ever 450cc Yamaha enduro bike with the highest degree of controllability in a wide range of situations.
