Yamaha Reveals 2021 Dirt Bikes
Yamaha Motor Australia have introduced a wide range of 2021 dirt bikes including its race-ready 2021 MX collection highlighted by the all new YZ250F.

Featuring a thoroughly refined engine, revised frame, new suspension settings and new brakes, the YZ250F continues to dominate the competition with the best balance of power and handling.

For 2021 the YZ250F gets significant engine, frame, suspension and brake updates to deliver more class-leading power and offer a superior balance of nimble yet confidence-inspiring handling.

Also new for 2021, the YZ250F and YZ450F will be offered in special Monster Energyå¨ Yamaha Racing Editions, pairing Yamaha‰Ûªs legendary YZ performance with a new, race team-inspired aesthetic.

In addition to the updated YZ250F and the Monster Energy Racing Edition models, the full two-stroke lineup consisting of the YZ65, YZ85, YZ125 and YZ250, as well as the four-stroke YZ450F, all return for 2021 with the next-generation Team Yamaha Blue colour and graphics scheme to further accentuate the advances of the YZ series.

New 2021 YZ250F:

The new 2021 Yamaha YZ250F has been redesigned for a more competitive, greater performing motocross experience. The new 250cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, electric start engine features an all-new cylinder head with an improved intake port shape and new camshaft profiles, as well a new airbox and intake track, a new silencer, and an updated ECU.

These modifications, along with other refinements like an updated transmission and shift cam, a revised clutch design and improved water pump impeller, all help to produce stronger mid to top-end power and increased peak power, while retaining its class-leading low-end torque.

Tuned specifically for the 2021 YZ250F, the updated lightweight aluminium, bilateral beam frame, and new engine mounts have been redesigned with all-new flex characteristics to improve bump absorption, traction, and cornering performance.

The industry-leading, fully adjustable KYBå¨ coil spring-type fork with enhanced speed-sensitive damping provides an exceptional balance between comfort and bottoming resistance while the link-type rear suspension features a KYB shock with revised damping characteristics to match the updated chassis.

Other chassis components such as the top triple clamp, handlebar mounts, and front axle were also redesigned to complement the new frame. Improved braking performance is achieved with newly engineered lighter weight front and rear brake calipers, larger surface area brake pads, and redesigned front (270mm) and rear (240mm) discs.

The 2021 YZ250F gives racers the edge right out of the gate. Standard equipment includes electric start, a lightweight lithium battery, advanced fuel injection, a front-positioned intake, and rear-positioned exhaust layout to deliver the widest spread of power with reliable performance while balancing the weight for excellent mass-centralisation.

Racers can adjust their engine performance straight from their phone using the onboard wireless connectivity through the industry‰Ûªs only free of charge complete tuning system, which is highlighted by the Yamaha Power Tuner App.

Once settings are dialed-in, racers can then choose between two user-defined ECU maps on the fly via the handlebar mounted dual-mode engine map switch. Complemented by new next-generation Team Yamaha Blue colours and graphics, the 2021 YZ250F showcases Yamaha‰Ûªs race-winning pedigree.

The 2021 youth models are once again ready to tackle the track. The YZ65 and YZ85/LW are powered by confidence-inspiring 65cc and 85cc two-stroke engines.

All new 2021 YZ450FX

In the world of competition enduro models, the 2021 YZ450FX has been reworked to remain at the top of its class. The new 449cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, electric start engine features an all-new compact cylinder head with redesigned combustion chamber shape, and steeper valve angles. The rearward-slanted cylinder houses a higher compression piston with low friction rings attached to a longer connecting rod.

The transmission has been refined to provide smoother shifting, and a more efficient crank breather system has been adopted to decrease pumping losses. In all, the lighter, more compact engine produces increased power across the entire RPM range for stronger and more linear pulling power.

The latest evolution of Yamaha‰Ûªs lightweight aluminium bilateral beam frame has been redesigned with all-new flex characteristics that provide improved cornering performance, traction and bump reaction to give the rider more confidence to push harder in any off-road condition. Other chassis components such as engine mounts, top triple clamp and front axle, as well as the class-leading KYBå¨ suspension with enhanced compression and rebound characteristics were carefully refined to reduce weight while improving handling and performance.

To bring the new package to a stop, the 2021 YZ450FX features a newly designed front brake caliper, brake pads and front and rear disc. The combined changes to the new 2021 YZ450FX deliver increased power output with more controllable, linear acceleration and lightweight handling characteristics that mimics the YZ250FX.

To further showcase the YZ450FX‰Ûªs cross country edge, electric start, a lightweight lithium battery, and advanced fuel injection are all standard features. The front-positioned intake and rear-positioned exhaust layout deliver the widest spread of reliable power while balancing the weight for excellent mass-centralisation.

This enduro racer also continues to feature Yamaha‰Ûªs advanced racing technology. The dual-mode switchable engine mapping and wireless connectivity is handled through the industry‰Ûªs only free of charge complete tuning system, which is highlighted by the Yamaha Power Tuner App. This system allow racers to adjust their engine performance using their smartphone, while the Yamaha Launch Control System helps to achieve quicker, smoother race starts. With new next generation Team Yamaha Blue colours and graphics, the 2021 YZ450FX showcases Yamaha‰Ûªs cross-country competitive edge.

In Australia, both YZ250FX and 450FX come with a rec rego kit - that includes a headlight - to enable these models to be registered in applicable states such as VIC.

The otherwise unchanged YZ125X, YZ250X and YZ250FX are also available in the new trick blue/black plastics combo and all come with the rec rego kits in Australia.
