MEDIA PRESS RELEASE

Topping last season’s all-conquering YFZ450 was always going to be a challenge. The new 2009 YFZ450R successfully steps up to the No 1 Sports ATV position by moulding totally uncompromising engineering into instant race-winning potential.

The YFZ450R story starts with a new, massively rigid but very lightweight cast aluminium and steel hybrid chassis. Though the suspension is wider and longer than the YFZ450’s, the YFZ450R is physically shorter overall than its predecessor, giving it a more agile, nimble feel.
Sitting low in this chassis is a 449cc 5-valve DOHC liquid-cooled engine with reshaped intake ports and fuel injection controlled by a 32-bit ECU. The engine’s dry-sump design allows for a shallower crankcase, lowering the centre of gravity still further for even sharper handling. Pressure lubrication from a separate (small) dry-sump tank inside the crankcase reduces weight and rules out oil starvation under high G-forces.

The intake port design and valve timing have both been modified for increased low and midrange power. A new exhaust boosts low and midrange power, while a new five-speed gearbox with taller ratios drives through an up-rated clutch. The result is an ATV packing linear, muscular acceleration.
Increased wheel travel and longer suspension arms maximise the YFZ450R’s performance potential without compromising overall balance, handling or agility. New tread-pattern tyres make turn-in even sharper and a lightweight 220mm ‘wave’ disc reduces unsprung weight. Ideal riding ergonomics are made possible by a four-setting handlebar adjustment system, a new throttle lever, remodelled seat and wider footrests.

KEY FEATURES
New spring & dampers:
• Dual rate springs – improved grip and absorption in compression and expansion stroke
• 3-way adjustable dampers – compression, rebound, high speed compression
• Large diameter hydraulic flow dampers means greater stroke feeling and bump absorption
• strong, lightweight cast aluminium and steel chassis
• wider, longer suspension
• high power, delivered smoothly from the new fuel-injected five-valve engine
• dry-sump design for lower weight and reliable lubrication under high G-forces
• new cylinder head, valve timing and exhaust boost low and midrange power
• taller ratio gearbox with uprated clutch
• improved rider-centric ergonomics for optimal comfort and operation
• ‘Out of the box’ competitiveness.

The original YFZ was the first 450 class Pure Sport ATV. The new 2009 Yamaha YFZ450R raises the bar yet again with a motocross inspired design, all-new fuel injected engine, cast aluminum frame, Wide-Arc front A-arms and true long travel suspension.

Designed to dominate the race track, the all new YFZ450R is sure to draw many checkered flags.

With a "wide-track" chassis and new suspension, this new YFZ "R" will provide more stability, confidence and control than ever before. The powerful 5-valve 449cc race engine has been updated with fuel injection and a bunch of goodies from our YZ motocross bikes. This new engine is cradled by an all-new hybrid aluminum chassis for improved strength and reduced flex, making the new YFZ450R the most capable racer we've ever developed.

• improved rider-centric ergonomics for optimal comfort and operation
• ‘Out of the box’ competitiveness

Features and Benefits:
• Newly designed Dual Over Head Cam (DOHC) 449cc 4-stroke engine retains a 5-valve head for optimum high RPM power. Many of this engine's design elements have come directly from our race winning YZ450F and WR450F motocross bikes, including the cylinder, cylinder head, cams and crank. Engine power and mid-range response are both improved over last year's YFZ and with the addition of fuel injection, engine power is always optimized, regardless of altitude or temperature. The crankcases have been beefed up and the oil tank and lines are now integrated for improved durability and a lower center of mass. The new crankshaft has a larger diameter big end bearing, a stronger connecting rod and a smoother counter balancer.
• Yamaha Fuel Injection (YFI) constantly monitors variables such as air temperature, intake pressure, engine temperature, throttle position and more, to ensure optimum fuel delivery. YFI automatically compensates for changes in temperature, elevation, and even barometric pressure. This means you don't have to fool with carburetor jetting, so you can focus on the ride.
• This new frame incorporates a "Zero Weld" design for maximum strength. Both the main and sub frame are cast aluminum. The lower frame, which takes the majority of abuse from rocks and debris, is made of steel for maximum strength and durability. This new design also helps lower the center of gravity with engine placement as low as possible.
• For ultimate track handling and stability, the YFZ450R is over 3-inches wider than the standard YFZ. The front A-arms now incorporate the "Wide Arc" design to greatly improve ground clearance, so obstacles are less likely to impact the lower a-arms. Upper and lower a-arm pivot points are now closer together to reduce the pivot angle and improve suspension control.
• All-new suspension geometry allows for long travel front shocks with 9.8" of front suspension travel, that's 0.7 inches more than our standard YFZ. Brand new piggy-back reservoir front shocks are more robust with 44mm rods and a Kashima coating for reduced friction.
• In the rear there's a new 15mm longer cast aluminum swing-arm with new linkage ratios serving up 11" of travel from a new long-travel fully-adjustable piggyback shock.
• All three shocks (front and rear) have high and low compression, rebound and threaded pre-load adjustments enabling you to tune the ride to the conditions.
• The new "wide-back" seat provides the perfect balance between comfort and movement. It's narrow in the front for easy transitions from side to side, but wide in the back to help cushion the landings and rough corners. And even though the YFZ R has longer suspension travel and a new seat design, seat height remains at a low 31.9".
• A new thumb throttle design has an improved shape for reduced effort. The front flip-type parking brake is removable for racing. The front brake lever is adjustable and the clutch lever is adjustable on the fly.
• Easily replaceable panels in high wear areas will provide flex and grip for aggressive riding.
• 20" rear tires offer the best all-round performance for track and trail.
• 65mm wide foot pegs help ensure your feet have traction when you need it. They are 20mm wider and 12mm longer than the standard YFZ.
• LED tail light for improved visibility, longevity and reduced electric power consumption.
• Wave rear brake rotor for less unsprung weight

2012 Yamaha Stratoliner Deluxe Features and Benefits

ENGINE

1854cc, air-cooled, long-stroke, OHV, 4 valves per cylinder, 48°, V-twin powerplant produces massive torque and class leading acceleration.

Traditional pushrod valve actuation keeps engine height down for a lower centre of gravity and ensures more uniform heat dissipation due to absence of a cam chain case. A lower centre of gravity helps to ensure light, easy handling.

Four-valve cylinder heads provide optimal breathing efficiency for great power delivery at all rpms. The two spark plugs per cylinder means faster, more complete combustion for maximum power output.

Cylinder head utilizes a pent roof combustion chamber design and features an oil passage near the exhaust valve seats to improve cooling and durability. The heads also feature engine mounting points on each side of the head for increased chassis rigidity for exceptional handling.

Large size valves increase engine horsepower and torque. The intake valves are 36mm in diameter while the exhaust valves are 31mm.

Specially designed valve train includes short design intake and exhaust rocker arms that reduce inertia during higher rpm use.

Twin, crankcase-mounted, high-lift cams ensure strong torque and class leading acceleration while also lowering the centre of gravity.

Mechanical centrifugal decompression mechanism located in each of the exhaust camshafts ensures fast, easy starts. This system reduces weight and complexity since no solenoid etc. is required.

Hydraulic valve lifters driven by the twin camshafts deliver exceptional performance and significantly reduce maintenance and tune-up requirements.

Large-diameter pistons are both durable and lightweight. Yamaha's exclusive "controlled forged construction" keeps the pistons light for faster response and reduced vibration and reciprocating mass. The pistons feature an Alumite coating to reduce friction.

The dry sump oil lubrication system has been optimized to ensure maximum lubrication and cooling. Special oil nozzles direct oil at the underside of the pistons to cool and lubricate them.

Special "dual chamber" crankcase design. The front section is for the crank assembly while the rear is for the transmission. Two, 3-rotor high capacity oil pumps optimizes oil flow in each of the two main sections of the engine.

Ceramic composite-plated cylinders provide uniform heat dissipation, reduce weight, reduce friction and increase cylinder service life.

Cooling fin thickness and depth is optimized for maximum heat dissipation, thereby eliminating the need for liquid cooling, while maintaining that traditional, stylish air-cooled engine appearance.

Optimized "damper-less" crankshaft allows the rider to feel the directness of the engine's power. For each rotation of the rear wheel, in 5th gear, the crank spins 3.14 times providing an outstanding rear wheel driving force feeling to the rider.

Compact design dual engine counterbalancers reduce vibration for exceptional rider and passenger comfort.

"Tri-axis" crankcase layout means the crankshaft, main axle and drive axle are specially arranged to minimize the size of the engine cases and centralize mass.

Mikuni 43mm, twin-bore, downdraft throttle body fuel injection (FI) with throttle position sensor (TPS) ensures great throttle response and maximum power throughout the rev range. This system is a "closed loop" system since it utilizes an oxygen sensor in the exhaust to monitor spent exhaust gases and adjust the FI system if necessary. The benefits of fuel injection include chokeless operation, increased fuel economy, instant throttle response and reduced emissions.

The 12-hole, 2-directional Mikuni fuel injectors produce a wide spray pattern for complete cylinder filling. This special spray pattern combined with the dual spark plug heads ensure complete combustion for maximum power. An Idle Speed Control (ISC) has been adopted to ensure stable idling performance.

High capacity electronic fuel pump is located in the sub fuel tank under the seat.

State-of-the-art Electronic Control Unit (ECU) ensures precisely metered fuel delivery and optimal ignition spark control using 3D transistorized coil ignition (T.C.I.) mapping for each cylinder.

3.5 litre dual inlet air filter box is located under the tank. There are intake ducts at the front and rear of the air box for maximum breathing efficiency. This design not only maximizes air flow but also reduces weight. A viscous paper type air filter is used.

Air Induction System (AIS) injects fresh oxygen at the exhaust port to insure complete combustion thereby reducing harmful exhaust emissions (HC & CO) while a special air cut valve reduces backfiring when decelerating or coasting off throttle.

High-performance, 2-into-1-exhaust system features large diameter header pipes for maximum flow. The single muffler contains a 3-way honey comb matrix catalyzer to reduce harmful exhaust emissions. The stylish muffler helps to boost torque and horsepower while producing a throaty, V-twin growl.

The exhaust system also features a lightweight titanium EXUP exhaust power valve most commonly found on high performance sport bikes. The EXUP system not only provides crisp throttle response and eliminates "flat spots" but also improves acceleration and reduces fuel consumption and harmful emissions.

Dry sump lubrication system means a more compact engine design since the oil tank is not part of the engine, which lowers the centre of gravity for great handling and a light feel. A handy, spin-on oil filter means fast, easy oil changes.

Frame mounted oil cooler is a first on a Yamaha cruiser. The cooler maintains consistent oil temperatures for optimum cooling and lubrication of this massive V-twin powerplant.

Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission features optimized gear ratios for strong acceleration and relaxed cruising at highway speeds.

2-piece heel-and-toe shifter adds versatility and enhances the overall cruising experience. The 2-piece design allows the rider to individually adjust front and rear portions to suit foot size or remove the rear section if not desired.

Heavy duty 10 plate clutch is designed to compliment engine power characteristics. This clutch is operated by a hydraulic master cylinder instead of a cable. The hydraulic clutch design is low maintenance, self adjusting and very stylish.

Low-maintenance belt drive system not only significantly reduces maintenance but is also clean and quiet. A belt drive system uses less power than a shaft drive and reduces unsprung weight for great rear suspension performance.

CHASSIS / SUSPENSION

Aluminium, die cast, double-cradle frame reduces weight, while balancing strength and rigidity. The critical head pipe area features box type construction for additional strength. The frame not provides excellent handling characteristics but also compliments the beautiful flowing lines of the rest of the chassis and bodywork. The engine is stressed member for added rigidity.

Lightweight C.F. die cast aluminium swingarm offers superb rigidity and ensures excellent stability and handling. The C.F. die casting process allows for beautiful shapes that are both strong and light. This swingarm is a fashion statement in aluminium and compliments the rest of the Stratoliner's eye catching styling.

Rigid 46mm front fork offers 130mm (5.1") of wheel travel for exceptionally stable handling and great ride comfort. The fork features "slash cut" large diameter blacked-out fork shrouds to enhance the "neo-streamliner" styling.

Beefy, cast aluminium, top and bottom triple clamps help increase fork rigidity and reduce weight.

Link rear suspension features a spring preload adjustable single rear shock delivering outstanding ride comfort and precise handling. The shock is horizontally positioned under the engine for a lower center of gravity and is hidden to provide that classic "hardtail" look. Rear wheel travel is 110mm (4.3").

Powerful dual 298mm floating front discs are squeezed by ultra rigid, 4-piston, monoblock calipers providing sport-bike spec stopping power. These brakes also provide great lever feel and feedback.

Huge 320mm rear disc is squeezed by a single piston caliper mounted below the swingarm for a lower center of gravity and that customized "hidden look".

Lightweight polished 12 spoke cast aluminium mag wheels reduce weight and enhance handling and styling. The front wheel is MT 4.00x18 while the rear wheel is a MT 5.50x17. Both are fitted with tubeless radial tires that provide excellent traction and reduced rolling resistance.

Two-piece seat design features a wide, flat profile for excellent rider comfort. The passenger seat features a small lip at the rear of the seat providing a secure feeling for the passenger.

Teardrop shaped rider floorboards with floating rubber inserts reduce vibration.

51w /55w high efficiency Irradiation headlight. This is a 2 bulb design, one for low beam and one for high beam. The unique headlight body compliments the "neo-streamline" styling.

Steel fenders front and rear can be easily customized or painted to suit personal preferences.

Flangeless teardrop style fuel tank. There are no welds visible, providing that custom look. The total fuel capacity is 17 litres thanks to a 3 litre sub tank located low in the frame below the seat. A high pressure electric fuel pump with quick connect fittings provide fuel to the FI system.

New 3-D fuel tank emblems.

Large 1.25" diameter handlebars. All electrical wires are hidden inside the handlebars for that clean custom look. Selected meter functions can be controlled by buttons on the back of RHS handlebar switch.

Fuel tank mounted instrument panel. The speedo has the classic "clock" styling motif. Just below the large analogue speedo is an analogue tach and fuel gauge. Other functions include digital odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel reserve trip counter and clock. Background illumination can be adjusted to suit personal preferences.

Classic design hard fairing with mini windshield provides a unique styling cue while offering wind and weather protection. This handlebar mounted fairing includes integrated speakers and is pre-wired for easy connection of an iPod® player.

Convenient handlebar mounted audio controller.

Beautifully styled, colour matched hard saddlebags provide ample storage for causal weekend tours.
