2010 YZ450F.

I keep telling people about this, but have yet to post anything on it. The crazy engineers over at Yamaha 180'd the cylinder on the new 450. Look at how rad it looks! Fuel pours in from the front and the exhaust shoots out the back. Kinda makes sense, doesn't it?

More photos and some tech stuff over at Yamaha's site and a little write up from a few weeks back on Hell For Leather as well.


  1. That's awesome! I've been drooling over this bike since I saw it a few weeks ago. It does kind of make sense to have it turned around like that. Makes me wonder if they could somehow figure out how to do it on a 2-stroke...?I'm definitley wanting this bike!

  2. yeah, i want this thing BAD, too bad i'm broke. hopefully i'll find a nice used one in 2013 i can afford!
