Last weekend in Japan during the national motocross championship, Yamaha raced a prototype of what could be the production model of the YZF 450cc 2014 model. As we can see from these photos the subframe, plastics, fuel tank cap, radiators and other details such as the exhaust and the rear shock reservoir have been changed. Probably the 2014 model will be very similar to this prototype. Can’t wait to see it and will be interesting to know if anyone will use it in the next Dakar.
