First Impression – 2010 Yamaha YZ450F

The wait is finally over—we’ve got our hands on the all-new highly anticipated 2010 Yamaha YZ450F. After spending all day on the bike at the picturesque Budds Creek facility in Maryland today, we’ve come away pretty impressed with the new bike. And with the amount of hype leading up to it, that’s saying a lot. This time around rather than building one long video, we’ve broken it into two separate ones. The first one consists of Yamaha’s Steve Butler going over the key features of the new bike, while the video you’ll find on the second page contains test rider Pat Foster’s initial impression of the YZF. We have plenty of more testing to do aboard the bike both back at Budds Creek tomorrow and later in the coming weeks once we take delivery of the bike. Be sure to check out an upcoming issue of TransWorld Motocross for a full in-depth evaluation.
