Yamaha knows how important the WR450F is to Aussie riders. With that in mind, the company has created a special limited edition version for 2021. The Aussie Edition dirt bike features blue graphics with a kangaroo motif and Australian-sourced accessories.
The WR450F has been at or near the top of the sales numbers for dirt bikes since its entrance to the market in 1998. In Australia, Yamaha sells more WR450Fs than in any other place in the world, according to Exhaust Notes.
“The retail success we have enjoyed with this model is down to a number of factors. First of all we have a big brown land covered in fast-flowing trails that is perfectly suited to this model,” Yamaha Motor Australia national sales and marketing manager Matthew Ferry said.
“Plus since its inception, both Aussies and Kiwis have been instrumental in the development of this model. So you can say that the WR450F is a machine created for our unique conditions.”
“Now it is gratifying to see the factory recognize the importance of this model for our market with the release of the limited Aussie Edition.”
The bike is based on the recently announced new 2021 WR450F. This special edition will be limited to only 400 units. Each will be stamped with its own special collector’s number. Special equipment includes Barkbuster handguards and an Akrapovic muffler. The bike is priced at $17,099 ride away with 12-month registration. The bike will come available in December of this year.
