Yamaha WR450F Rally Bike

Yamaha Factory Racing’s Olivier Pain, Michael Metge and Alessandro Botturi

Boosted by Olivier Pain’s third place on the 2014 Dakar and input from five time Dakar winner Cyril Despres, Yamaha Factory Racing Team Yamlube are entering a brand new machine for the 2015 edition – the Yamaha WR450F Rally. With its rear-inclined engine, the new bike has much in common with its YZ450F sibling. However, unlike the moto-x bike, Yamaha’s Dakar entry features electric start, a major rider aid for Dakar competitors in the dunes.

“One of the most striking features of the new bike is the WR’s unique single-cell fuel tank incorporating the rear sub frame”, Yamaha Factory Racing Team Yamlube Team Manager Jose Leloir commented. “The major consideration when building a Dakar bike is where to place the necessary 35 litres of fuel. For 2014 we had five separate fuel tanks all requiring pumps and all linked by fuel pipes. By using a single carbon fibre fuel cell we have simplified the system massively and in the processes made huge gains in both weight saving and reliability. In total we’ve reduced the bike’s weight by a considerable ten kilos and in the process made servicing the bike each evening a whole lot easier.”

The icing on the cake and what all motorcycle racers want, whatever the discipline, is more speed – a 10% gain over last year’s machine. Once again the single-cell fuel tank plays a role. Jose Leloir concluded, “Some of the bike’s increased performance comes from a new fuel injection system incorporating traction control that will reduce rider fatigue, improve fuel consumption and tyre wear. A substantial part of our top speed gain comes from improved aerodynamics. Put simply, with the single fuel cell, the bike is much slimmer and so cuts through the air with considerably less drag. A big part of the Dakar’s appeal is that anything can happen out there in the desert, but we are at least confident that for 2015 we have given our riders a machine with which they can fully express their talents.”
