Yamaha Motor Australia has announced details of Yamaha‰Ûªs 2020 YZ off-road model range including an all-new YZ125X two-stroke and a redesigned YZ250FX.

The all new YZ125X is the perfect entry point to the world of enduro. This lightweight 2-stroke will kickstart your off-road journey and set you on a path to racing success.

An all-new model for 2020, the Yamaha YZ125X is optimised for the unique demands of racing in the bush. It sports Yamaha‰Ûªs Power Valve System-equipped (YPVS) 125cc, liquid-cooled, two-stroke, reed-valve-inducted engine, combined with a six-speed transmission tuned for smooth, wide, and controllable power character across the rev range.

Enduro race performance is optimised with model specific Digital CDI ignition settings, new power valve shape and a new cylinder head combustion chamber shape. All these engine changes are focused on creating broad power delivery that suits off-road terrain and a wide range of rider skill levels.

This off-road racer is built on an ultra-lightweight aluminium frame carefully engineered for the perfect balance of rigidity and flex. To tackle punishing terrain with durability and comfort, YZ125 also features a sealed O-ring chain, a standard sidestand and fuel tank petcock with reserve position. Australian models will all come fitted with an off-road kit ‰ÛÒ including lights - designed to enable recreational registration in relevant states.

Fully adjustable, industry-leading KYB speed-sensitive spring-type suspension has been tested and tuned specifically for the needs of cross-country racers. Enduro-specific Dunlop Geomax AT81 tires with an 18-inch rear are ready to head straight to the races thanks to taller sidewalls for improved comfort and reduced pinch flats.

The all-new 2020 YZ125X is designed to appeal to junior and entry level enduro racers and other riders who appreciate the benefits of a lightweight two-stroke on full noise. YZ125X will come in Team Yamaha Blue - pricing and availability are to be announced.

This enduro racer has all the features to win including the smartphone power tuner app that adjusts power settings to your riding style and track conditions.

The 2020 YZ250FX is an out-of-the-box competition machine. Based on the championship-winning 2019 YZ250F, it features Yamaha‰Ûªs revolutionary front-intake, rear-exhaust, liquid-cooled, DOHC four-stroke power plant with an added sixth gear, wide ratio transmission, and a range of off-road upgrades.

Additionally, the YZ250FX is equipped with four-position rubber-mounted handlebar clamps, a side-stand, smartphone tuning capability and - new for 2020 - a handlebar-mounted map switch to adjust preselected engine maps on the fly.

For Australia - and as per all other models in the enduro range - YZ250FX is available with an off-road kit that makes it eligible for recreational registration in applicable states (this model is called YZ250FXR). The 2020 YZ250FX/R will come in Team Yamaha Blue - pricing and availability are to be announced.
2020 YZ450FX:
The 2020 YZ450FX is built for enduro race domination with electric start and smartphone power tuning that adjusts the bike's settings to your style and track conditions.

The 2020 YZ450FX uses Yamaha‰Ûªs distinct reward-slanted cylinder, 449cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine design, complete with rear exhaust and forward-mounted intake system all working together to deliver class leading power and controllability for enduro racing.

Its bilateral beam frame and engine mounting position optimises the machine‰Ûªs rigidity balance, resulting in improved cornering ability and traction, while industry-leading KYB suspension is specifically tuned to provide comfort and performance in the toughest off-road conditions.

Rider convenience is also a priority in the YZ450FX with enhancements including Yamaha‰Ûªs ultra-lightweight electric start system for effortless restarts under pressure, smartphone tuning capability and a handlebar-mounted map switch to choose between user defined engine maps on the fly.

The 2020 YZ450FX will come in Team Yamaha Blue -pricing and availability are to be announced.
