Yamaha introduced the new 2015 Yamaha YZ450F to the press today at Cahuilla Creek MX Park in Anza, California, today, and we couldn’t wait to throw a leg over the new blue beast. Major changes made to the bike include new thinner steel motor mounts and thinner upper fork tubes which – in conjunction – are designed to yield a more-precise feeling front end. We brought our part-time test rider and full-time ripper Ryan Surratt to the intro with us to spin some fast laps on our new test bike, and while we were at it, we slapped out GoPro Hero3+ on his helmet, too. Enjoy!
