Yamaha Motor Corp. USA unveiled the all-new 2018 Yamaha YZ450F with electric start last week.
This marks the world’s first motocross bike with a power tuner smartphone app that lets the driver dial-in engine settings for his or her specific style and conditions. For example, drivers can make “fueling and ignition timing changes instantly and upload them to the bike via the onboard Wi-Fi system for the ultimate in track-side tuning,” according to the OEM’s website.
The result? The bike instantly responds to the driver’s every command.
In addition to the electric start and power tuner app, the YZ450F — which starts at $9,199 — incorporates a new engine, frame, slim styling, and revised settings.
