Compact and lightweight, our in-line four-cylinder design is quiet, clean-burning and fuel efficient, with power to spare.
A 16-Valve Double Overhead Cam with individual intake and exhaust camshafts provides more precise valve timing control and has less moving parts for less maintenance. This superior design also allows for use of four compact valves per cylinder, which exchanges intake and exhaust gases more efficiently for better power and increased fuel economy.
Multi-Point Electronic Fuel Injection is controlled by the ECM (Engine Control Module). Four individual fuel injectors provide the precise amount of fuel for each individual cylinder. Optimal fuel atomization provides better combustion, further enhancing performance and fuel economy.
A 10mm Offset Crankshaft allows for larger intake volume design. Four tuned intake tubes boost torque in low and mid-speed ranges for quick acceleration.
The Composite Intake Manifold is a lightweight, compact design, making these engines very versatile. Long Tube Intake Tracks are tuned to increase airflow, boosting low-end and midrange torque. This means a more powerful hole shot and increased acceleration. Even with all this responsive power, an air silencer box and surge tank reduce air intake noise and air turbulence for smoother operation.
Microcomputer Ignition adjusts timing to maintain optimum engine performance, economy and power under all operating conditions.
Combined with our proprietary alloy (YDC-30), our exclusive Phaze Five™ electro-deposited, anti-corrosive paint system provides a tough, five-layer barrier against corrosion. This protection is standard on all Yamaha inline four stroke engines.
