14 posts in this topic

Dealer told me last night, now it's on the yamaha France site: 2 Wheel drive 450 F

The bike will have Ohlins front forks and rear shock.

The front wheel will only be driven as soon as the rear starts slipping............

Here are some pictures :

It surprises me a little that they'd do 2 different types of drives. Why not make the front and rear hydraulic?

Anyway, the thing looks very cool. I bet it helps a ton climbing hills.
