2022 Yamaha YFZ450R Photo Gallery

More sand-slinging images of the YFZ in Winchester Bay.

Oregon’s Winchester Bay is a unique dune system with technical trails that will challenge rider and machine. If you’ve got the talent, Yamaha already makes the machine.Dave Schelske

What can we say? Yamaha’s YFZ450R is the only race-ready game in town and we just can’t get enough of it. It was difficult to pick the 10 best images we had for the YFZ450R review, so we decided to give 15 more photos their own space. There are actually even more fantastic photos, but we need to move on to other things—like our review of the 2022 Yamaha Raptor 700R.

Enjoy the photos!
