Yamaha WR450F vs Suzuki

There is little we presented his new WR450F in Sicily. We then it would be good to contrast the Blue at its most direct the Suzuki RMX450Z-2012 vintage. The overhaul of the Yamaha Endure 450 has it off against a Suzuki deemed

Yamaha WR450F vs Suzuki The comparative

Although revolutions are not for the road this year, we did some surprises including a 450 new generation. As a reminder, Yamaha has this year to offer a to its large displacement Enduro, for several years. To gauge new 2012, we have chosen to a motorcycle boxing in the same the Enduro pleasure.

This is the RMX-Z gets stuck, but that the Honda 450 CRF-X legitimize able to join the

This is in Creuse, Longechaud, we an appointment with our guide for a day hike with, the menu of the the small path, rocks, mud, crossing … and a few drops! Our a group of friends from different levels, rolling in soon as conditions allow, ever taking the lead. that none of them rolling on a Yam or Suz: a guarantee of

Two similar approaches to the 450 Enduro

We in the pampas Creuse, first around the house. From the it plays tight between our two two have to pretty much the equipment: floating front disc, skid plate, starter, and quick access to the wide footrest…

At most, the puts it in his front aluminum – a limited capacity – while the exhibits black rims, as as fragile off-road. In addition, finishes under the WR-F not be to the liking of everyone.

So these are the that will tip the scales. our enduro the day has all made ​​a point where are the hand guards? on both machines, these pieces of plastic that may harmless have a role to in the sunken lanes. And we will see that was quick to regret…

But is this handlebar?

Here we are on way to adventure … with an hour But for a hike like this, you know as wide, very The weather is with us, it’s not too blue skies and bright hard to beat. To legs and drivers, what better the broad road running?

attention is called off and rolling it remains the enduro track and not all

From the first meters, the seems to be necessary in terms of of handling: orders like the position – sitting or standing – as natural in the eyes of our testers a the smallest highlighting still a height a bit high. However, if the RMX450Z suits everyone in of ergonomics in the legs, no one will the pilot position, the fault to low and curved handlebars.

Next our two protagonists have the “magic a positive point. But if none of show themselves recalcitrant to we must admit that Yam is a bit when seeking the starter Instead, it starts to kick well – still stalled – and requires a little more with Suzuki.

Here for the remarks, with the passage a aside for noise: our two machines a little too noisy for our liking for bikes despite silent equipped with baffles.

handy against Blue

That’s it, pilots are hot, No laughing and you push the bikes to limits. The first reviews the windshield, with its footrest excessively. The gossips might say it vibrates as a Gas, story of a spoof Sylvain, now for the test its 250 EC.

Despite this, the RMX is taking the WR-F, particularly in technical Although it is not a reference in terms of among the Enduro bikes, showed he even more and easier than the Yamaha. She is pretty well for small while Yam requires more

It should be more applicable the Blue, a little taller and than the yellow. In the fast, the reversed: copy of stability, the does not move an ounce the pace picks up, then more secure than the And if, overall, the suspensions are effective for a day like this, they better tuned to the Yamaha, fork of asking a few settings to

A break is needed!

A little comfort but would not a luxury: it is a stiff in the long run in both Another expensive for enduro, the guards are conspicuous by their which will be felt as as when the brambles on the act or in the first in the broom, these tough that have the tendency to down your up … Side however, the effectiveness of Nissin sets / floating wave unanimous.

We’re already in and it is time to recharge the batteries of the Why nothing like the terrace of the Inn along the Ceruse, at La Celle-Dunois. between the meal and the sun, we end up in the afternoon at the hostel and the hardest is to get back in the saddle.

Yes, it is not so easy a compare Fortunately our dedication finally the above – as always – and here we are to conquer the narrow paths of the

Easier, more efficient

a few climbs not so obvious, one thing is the Suzuki RMX450Z and the Yamaha have power to spare and But the character of the linear motor will favor our drivers. Its and strength make it a real mounted anywhere. The side of the the performance is there, but the injection has been slightly retouched for strength down, the mechanics are easy to tame in the technical slow.

A softer setup have been preferable.

if you can now get a motor behavior to the card electronic fuel injection, defects will not be able to easily. And therein lies the Yam points: inertia and a piston are present in far too tiring to ride a The RM-X appears to be more fun and to tame.

But be careful anyway: it’s a 450, and sooner or later tired to his handlebars.

This to the technical parts, because in the the Yamaha is doing much and is on a par with the Suzuki. The Yellow the same advantage over the always because of the vibrations in feet everywhere. And then, level, we must say that you turn the handle to the right, is with the Blue.

She pushes the

After this day of running, 120 km of full of dust, … mud, grass, ruts water and pebbles, notices Level chassis, the two bikes without blemish or vicious with a slight advantage for the WR450F, very homogeneous. It is on the mechanical as the match will be

The 4-… character – the engine inertia and a piston … – the Yamaha is a motorcycle rather which must be required to him where we want. Which requires a little more effort and / or technique? At his side, the was soon to appear as a fun bike.

Its linear motor and effectively the uprights. However, its overall does not convince more that: it’s still a firm for a day of hiking, and handlebars, once raised, and does not a comfortable position when long standing.

In conclusion, the RMX450Z is more accessible to mortals a Yamaha WR450F and demanding a minimum of experience. be aware that our test of the day is all of one a 450 is a 450! Whether the Suzuki or for hiking alone, these are not always easy.
