There are few joys in life equal to the free-spirited thrill and experience of motorcycling. And that’s why it’s important for all of us to do our part as responsible riders. By following logical,

commonsense rules, we can maintain season after season of unparalleled enjoyment of our sport. Always remember to review your Yamaha Owner’s Manual and Tips Booklet before you

ride. Before each ride, take time to check all your equipment. Always wear an approved helmet, eye protection, long-sleeved shirt, long pants, gloves and boots. And always be sure your

bike is in first-class condition before riding. Never ride an off-road motorcycle on paved surfaces or public roads; never carry passengers; never engage in stunt riding and avoid excessive

speed. Provide parental supervision when a motorcycle is being operated by a minor. Every motorcycle rider should be aware of the limits of his or her skills, experience and abilities and

ride accordingly. Beginners should be extremely cautious and allow extra time and distance for maneuvering and braking. All riders should ride well within the limits of their abilities,

never beyond them. Do not drink and ride. It is illegal and dangerous. Yamaha and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation encourage you to ride safely and respect the environment. For further

013YZ450F >> REARWARD-SLANTED ENGINE >> FUEL INJECTION >> ALUMINUM DOUBLE “S” FRAME

OTHER BIKES, PLEASE MOVE TO THE REAR.

The revolutionary YZ ® 450F is the first and only production bike ever built around a straight-intake, rear-slanted

engine and aluminum bilateral beam frame for the most compacted center of mass ever in a four stroke. Plus, the

4-titanium valve cylinder head is matched to a newly optimized fuel injection system that provides superb low- to

mid-rpm power feeling. The result: instant throttle response, unprecedented balance and incredible cornering

performance, coupled with the best stock suspension in the industry and legendary Yamaha durability. Note to the

MX world: If you’re not ready for the future, prepare to be passed.

bIlATERAl bEAm fRAmE

Further aids handling by allowing

the fuel load to be carried lower and

more rearward.

bIlATERAl bEAm AlumINum fRAmE: Torsional rigidity converts lateral impacts into

longitudinal forces, which are easily absorbed by the suspension—so you’re quick into the corners and

even quicker coming out.

REARWARD-SlANTED ENgINE: Concentrates the engine’s mass much closer to the YZ’s center

of gravity, enabling lightweight handling, quicker direction changes and a straight intake tract for superb

combustion efficiency that delivers more power.

4-vAlvE CylINDER HEAD: The 4-titanium valve cylinder head is matched to a newly recalibrated

fuel injection system that provides superb low- to mid-rpm power feeling. Instantly adapts to changing air/

fuel mixtures depending on altitude and temperature, for an engine that delivers no matter what conditions.

bATTERylESS fuEl-INJECTION SySTEm: The YZ450F was engineered around its fuel

injection system: Moving the intake to the front of the bike makes the straight intake not just possible

but amazingly effective.

gyTR ® POWER TuNER: Allows you to quickly adjust the fuel and ignition maps to suit riding conditions

and rider preference. Allows 9 easy-to-program adjustment points for both the fuel and ignition maps.

REvOluTIONARy ENgINE

The rearward-slanted engine allows for

straight intake and exhaust ports, creating

the most direct path for airflow into the fuelinjected

engine for incredible performance.

TORNADO PIPE

Length tuned for low-rev grunt and top-end

horsepower, with a torque-boosting resonator

that keeps the noise down to 94 dB.

THE MOST POWERFUL, BEST HANDLING YZ250F EVER.

ENgINE

Optimized breathing, D-shape exhaust

port and intake camshaft improve low- and

midrange power.

2013

Designed to be the best cornering performance motocross bike ever, the 2013 YZ ® 250F features a long list of top-tier features.

We started with a refined, optimized engine that pumps out power in the 8,000 to 12,000 rpm range; gave it a Bilateral Beam

frame with revised rigidity balance for superb cornering performance and stability on rough, high-speed straights; added a

KYB ® suspension for superior handling; then threw in a host of other goodies like beefy outer fork tubes and triple clamps for

the most powerful, best cornering, lightest weight in its class, most durable and intuitive YZ250F ever.

bIlATERAl bEAm fRAmE: Sixteen separate components, advanced structural analysis plus high

lateral and torsional rigidity for added cornering stability and more cornering speed.

gREAT mID- TO TOP-END POWER: Engine refinements, including a large 39mm carburetor,

optimized CDI and light piston with a light piston pin, mean the YZ250F has more power as well as exceptional

throttle response in the mid- to high-speed range.

STRENgTH IN NumbERS: Strong transmission gears and shift fork make for smooth shifting

and durability. Stiff clutch springs cope with that 250 four-stroke power, while the lever ratio keeps

clutch-pull effort low.

HyDRO-fORmED SWINgARm: A super-light, super-rigid, hydro-formed swingarm and a strong,

25mm axle are carefully tuned to complement the YZ250F’s advanced chassis.

lEADINg-EDgE STylE: Form follows function with fenders, number plate, fork protector,

side covers and air scoop. The seat serves up even more feel and feedback. Rich-looking black rims

and gold-color drive chain complete the package.

bIlATERAl bEAm fRAmE

High lateral and torsional rigidity

provides added cornering stability

and more cornering speed.

SlIm bODyWORK

The tank, seat and rear fender are flat,

and the relationship between handlebars,

rider movement.


013YZ250 / YZ125 / YZ85

>> LIGHT WEIGHT >> RACE-READY >> LOW-COST MAINTENANCE

GO ON A PREMIX POWER TRIP.

Rumors of the two-stroke’s demise have been greatly exaggerated. In fact, some race organizations allow 250cc

two-strokes to compete against four-strokes in amateur competition, so there is no doubt we’ll all get to hear that

sweet sound at the track. Good thing the 2013 YZ ® 250, YZ ® 125 and YZ ® 85 are more prepared than ever with their

superior chassis designs, explosively powerful engines and awesome lightweight handling. We’re there for you,

ahead of the pack, two stroke or four.

SERIOuS POWER: YZ250 and YZ125’s patented YPVS power-valve systems broaden and smooth

power delivery: You get immediate off-idle response, smooth midrange and strong top-end power with

plenty of over-rev.

ADvANCED SuSPENSION: State-of-the-art KYB Speed-Sensitive System forks on YZ250 and YZ125

are as good as production front suspension gets and provide stellar suspension action.

TOPlINE COmPONENTS THROugHOuT: YZ250 and YZ125 roll with aluminum frames, tapered

oversized handlebars, wave-type brake discs—they’re ready to run up front straight from the crate.

mINI Of CHOICE: The YZ85 is world renowned as the most serious mini-missile out there:

an aggressive, quick-turning 157-pound machine packing a hard-hitting, take-no-prisoners powerplant.

The liquid-cooled, 85cc crankcase, reed-valve inducted 6-speed is light, compact and designed to deliver

hard-hitting, moto-winning power throughout the rpm range.

2012

WR450F

>> FUEL INJECTION >> YZ-SPEC ALUMINUM FRAME >> LATEST YZ-SPEC SUSPENSION

There are lots of cool things about the WR ® 450F. But perhaps the coolest is that it uses a light, compact, YZ250F-based

chassis but gets all the serious power of a highly potent, fuel-injected 450 engine. And that’s just the beginning.

Designed to perform on the tight trails and in the highest altitudes, the fuel injection system delivers smooth power

and lightning-fast throttle response. Inspired by Yamaha MX race technology, right down to its agile chassis and

cushy YZ250F-based suspension, it doesn’t just pound the trails—it pummels the competition.

2012 MODEL SHOWN.

mX-INSPIRED CHASSIS: Say hello to an off-road bike that thinks like a motocross bike.

Incorporating award-winning Yamaha race technology, the nimble WR450F boasts a compact 250cc chassis

for lightweight handling through the tightest woods.

PluSH SuSPENSION: Serious riders need the latest and greatest suspension. That’s why the 2012

WR450F comes with the same fork and shock as the YZ250F (valved and sprung for off-road use, of course).

fuEl-INJECTED POWER: Expect quicker throttle response and smoother power delivery at almost

any altitude and weather condition.

ElECTRIC START: Just push the button and go. You also get a full-function digital enduro race computer,

an adjustable ProTaper ® handlebar (2012 model only), a bright headlight and an LED taillight out back.

model leaner and meaner. It’s slimmer so you can conquer the narrowest trails—and look good doing it.

QuIETly CAPAblE: A quiet and light exhaust keeps everybody happy, and the WRs are green

sticker approved.

Off-ROAD READy: Toolless access air box, Excel rims, 18-inch rear wheel, ProTaper handlebars,

wave-type brake rotors, electric start, on-the-fly clutch adjuster, ski plate, enduro race computer,

o-ring chain and aluminum sidestand.

button and go!


013WR250F >> TORQUEY HIGH-REVVING FIVE-VALVE ENGINE >> ALUMINUM FRAME >> DIGITAL ENDURO COMPUTER

LIGHTEN UP.

The WR ® 250F is much more than the WR450F’s quick little brother. A wet weight of just 254 pounds and a highly

tractable 250cc titanium-valve engine make it just the tool for tight trails. And with a race-ready digital enduro

computer for race time keeping, as well as a speedometer, clock and tripmeter, you’ve got bells and whistles to spare.

ElECTRIC START

Once you’ve started a bike with a

push-button electric start you’ll never

go back to kick start again.

WAvE-TyPE DISCS

Wave-type discs reduce unsprung,

spinning weight, as do the aluminum

pistons inside the brake calipers.

POWER All OvER: A broad powerband and rock-solid-reliable engine with five titanium valves will

get you nearly anywhere in a hurry, with plenty of energy in reserve for the ride back.

ElECTRIC START: Just push the button and go. You also get a full-function digital enduro race

computer, an adjustable tapered handlebar, a bright headlight and an LED taillight out back.

AlumINum fRAmE: Narrow, light and carefully tuned to turn on a dime and run arrow straight in top gear.

TOP DRAWER: Fully adjustable suspension serves up a foot of plush, controlled travel at both ends and

14.4 inches of ground clearance. Wavetype brake rotors bring you quickly to a halt.

QuIETly CAPAblE: A quiet and light exhaust keeps everybody happy, and the WRs are California

green sticker approved.

Off-ROAD READy: Toolless access air box, Excel rims, 18-inch rear wheel, tapered handlebars,

wave-type brake rotors, electric start, on-the-fly clutch adjuster, skid plate, enduro race computer,

o-ring chain and aluminum sidestand.
