The embargo is finally lifted and we can tell you our first impression of the 2022 Yamaha YZ450F. The Dirt Bike Magazine took the bike out to Fox Raceway and had several of our test riders hit the track to get feedback on the 2022 model. This bike returns with easy access air box, adjustable handlebar positions, wifi tuner app, and blue wheels. The suspension received some updates and the rear wheel was modified for durability as well as comfort. Can the Yamaha move a position or two upward in our ranking for the 2022 Shootout? We will have to wait and see! Check out what the Dirt Bike Magazine staff had to say about the bike as well as some tips on what to change if you purchase one in the near future.
