Yamaha WR450F 2012: First test

For the presentation of the vintage 2012 Yamaha WR450F . Yamaha has not done in half measures … In Sicily we were invited to try this brand new bike in the footsteps of the Enduro World Championship. But once there, fair play has quickly given way to the tourist site.

How fortunate to escape in the beautiful scenery of the mountains of Sicily, to take in his eyes at every turn with the backdrop of one of the highest – and active! – Volcanoes of Europe: Mount Etna. It is in a framework for more inclusive that we have gas riding the Yamaha WR450F . completely redesigned for 2012. Preferred to inverted cylinder engine of the current YZ450F Cross, the conventional single cylinder – an old friend at Yamaha – sees himself still equipped with electronic fuel injection and housed in the chassis of the YZ250F.

Pressing the starter and the engine snorts discreetly: a first good thing about the WRF. Accessible, easy and helped by injection, the mono 5 valves shows good potential despite old design after all. The safe at low speed is not very impressive, but its effectiveness is stirring. No piston stroke at low speed, no inadvertent stall, a round foolproof: this engine is a joy to drive.

Chassis side, I must have put a little time to feel confident on the bike, especially with the front. It must be said that Sicilian tracks may prove vicious: it is quick to take a series of brittle rocks or holes in the front wheel. Increased the apprehension we feel good about the Yam ‘, all offering comfort and significant suspensions gradually working.
