Borrowed from Yamaha-Motor.com

Check out the release video! Assembled in the USA (Georgia) the new YFZR features some cool redesigned features and some ready-to-race components (including Maxxis tires right out of the box 21s and 20s). It comes in a standard Yamaha blue and white color scheme which looks pretty nice and a badass orange version!

Some highlights of the new Yamaha, besides the new color scheme, include a new slipper clutch;  titatium 5-valve cylinder, newly design exhaust, and new cam profiles; new ECU and diagnostic tool; redesigned ergonomics – though they look at lot similar; and several more features.
