2021 WR450F "Aussie Edition"
In recognition of the WR450F’s importance to the Australian market, Yamaha has created a special limited edition version for 2021. The unique Aussie Edition comes with striking blue graphics featuring a kangaroo motif and a range of Australian sourced accessories.
The Aussie Edition model is based on the recently announced all new 2021 WR450F and will be strictly limited to 400 units. Each model is stamped with its own unique collector’s number. The look is pure antipodes with a kangaroo motif featuring in the embedded graphics as well as the custom anodised aluminium radiator guards and bashplate – developed locally by Force Accessories. Fellow Aussie firm Barkbusters supplies the handguards and an Akrapovic muffler is specified for this very special model.
WR450F ( LAMS Approved )
Using the YZ450F as a starting point, our experienced development team – including Kiwi race team manager and Yamaha legend Josh Coppins – came up with an enduro weapon that turns, stops and goes better than ever before. The 2021 WR450F produces bulk power but transmits that power to the ground in a more controllable manner with additional traction at both wheels.
Sporting a new aluminium bilateral beam frame, the WR450F feels lighter, is easier to turn in tight situations and has improved stability both in the bumps and in the air. Progressive, smooth KYB suspension continues to absorb big impacts and the braking performance is now improved.
2021 WR450F is designed to appeal to those born to ride – from professional enduro riders to super capable trail riders.
WR250F (LAMS Approved)
The WR250F is closer than ever to the industry leading YZ250F and the cross-country racing YZ250FX. All three models are based on the same platform but with significant differences that suit the type of riding for which they have been designed.
The goal for the WR250F was to provide superior handling and increased steering precision while retaining high speed stability. And to create a slimmer and lower machine that inspires more confidence with a lighter feeling. Thorough testing has revealed that the new machine has surpassed this goal by allowing super easy direction changes with high levels of manoeuvrability. Power is stronger at all levels and delivered in a linear fashion with excellent traction characteristics.
In short, the WR250F is now even better at what it has always been best at – carving through singletrack like a hot knife through butter.
The YZ450FX runs all the latest frame, suspension, engine and electronics upgrades found on the YZ450F – including the Yamaha’s exclusive smartphone tuning. We’ve developed the FX specifically for off-road competition. So as well as enduro engine and suspension settings, the FX has an 18 in rear wheel, bashplate, sealed O-ring chain, fuel level warning indicator and an aluminium sidestand. The Australian model comes with off road kit fitted as standard that makes it eligible for recreational registration in applicable states.
YZ450FX – when you want to push in the bush.
This purpose built enduro racer is built for riding in the bush – fast. Developed as an off-road version of the YZ250F, this cross country racer is equipped with enduro optimised engine and suspension settings. For Australia, YZ250FX comes with an off road kit that includes handguards, rearview mirror, lights and a horn. This allows the model to qualify for recreational registration in applicable states.
Two-stroke version of YZ250FX gives an instant hit of two-stroke power in a lightweight enduro specific package.
Riders who like the easy maintenance, sharp handling and incredible power delivery of the YZ250 can now access this in the bush. A revised engine and a wide ratio gearbox have harnessed the power while an 18in rear wheel with off road tyres, a sidestand and reserve fuel tap add the creature comforts. We’ve even slimmed down the expansion chamber to avoid clipping trail obstacles. And that class leading KYB twin chamber suspension is especially tuned for enduro riding.
The Aussie version is fitted with the off road riding kit as standard.
The new YZ125X racer is the perfect entry point to the world of enduro. A lightweight two-stroke that will kickstart your off-road journey and set you on a path to racing success.
Its 125cc, liquid-cooled, two-stroke, reed-valve-inducted engine sports Yamaha’s Power Valve System (YPVS), combined with a six-speed transmission tuned for smooth and controllable power character across the entire rev range. Optimised for the unique demands of racing in the bush, the Aussie version will be fitted with off-road kit as standard.
