Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing's duo of Romain Febvre and Jeremy Van Horebeek are poised to debut the all-new 2018 Yamaha YZ450FM at the biggest and most popular off-road event of the year, the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations, this weekend at Matterley Basin, Winchester, England.

The Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nation's is the most prestigious motocross event on the calendar. It is a team race - the only one of its kind - where riders with the same nationality are put into teams of three. Each rider will compete in two races which will give each team a total of six race results at the end of the day. Only the five best results will contribute to the overall score.

The most anticipated event of the year will see Monster Energy Yamaha Factory Racing's duo of Romain Febvre and Jeremy Van Horebeek debut the revolutionary 2018 Yamaha YZ450FM, a bike that has been completely overhauled and redesigned from the ground up.

Described as lighter, narrower and more compact, both riders agree that the cutting-edge improvements to the all-new YZ450F offer extra stability and control over rough terrain, better braking, and even greater traction. Both riders will be lining up on the 'works' version of the bike, the YZ450FM.

Holy crap, that is one gnarly seat bump. Pretty soon there's going to be actual seat backs on these bikes blink

Geez, the holeshot device is nearly halfway down the fork guard. How many guys does it take to set that?

What about a backrest? Like on a gold wing. Thatll keep you positioned just right

My thoughts exactly. Is that a taller seat foam too? That is one goofy looking seat.
