2021 WR450F – Special “Aussie Edition”

3 weeks ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Yamaha Motor Australia

In recognition of the WR450F’s importance to the Australian market, Yamaha has created a special limited edition version for 2021. The unique “Aussie Edition” (available in Australia only) comes with striking blue graphics that feature a kangaroo motif and is fitted with a range of Australian-sourced accessories.

Since its release in 1998, Yamaha’s WR450F has dominated the retail charts and earned the title of Australia’s favourite motorcycle – a fact that Yamaha Motor Corporation in Japan has both recognised and appreciated. With its winning combination of high performance, precise handling, bulletproof reliability and ADR compliance, the WR450F appeals to Australia’s large contingent of off-road riders. So much so that Yamaha Motor Australia (YMA) sells more WR450Fs than any other territory in the world.

“The retail success we have enjoyed with this model is down to a number of factors, explains Matthew Ferry, YMA’s National Sales and Marketing Manager. “First of all, we have a big brown land covered in fast, flowing trails that is perfectly suited to this model. 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. It is gratifying to see the factory recognise the importance of this model for our market with the release of the limited Aussie Edition,” Ferry went on to say.

The Aussie Edition model is based on the recently announced all-new 2021 WR450F and will be strictly limited to 400 units. Each model is stamped with its own unique collector’s number. The look is pure Antipodes with a kangaroo motif featuring in the embedded graphics as well as the custom anodised aluminium radiator guards and bashplate – developed locally by Force Accessories. Fellow Aussie firm, Barkbusters, supplies the handguards, and an Akrapovic muffler is specified for this very special model.

Ride Away pricing is set at $17,099 (includes GST, freight, pre-delivery and 12 months registration), with availability due for December, 2020.
