Yamaha YZ250

Yamaha YZ250

Description

Yamaha’s race-tested YZ250 two-stroke is already known for its fast, powerful engine, plush suspension, class-leading handling and rider friendly character. With significant updates for 2022, it’s now even better.

Its all-new bodywork improves the ergonomics for an even higher degree of control and agility, and the industry-leading KYB suspension features revised low speed damping for better handling, while braking performance is taken to the next level with a new front caliper. And the new higher efficiency air intake and revised exhaust system sharpens the power output of the explosive 250cc liquid-cooled YPVS engine, whereas the new more powerful front braking system and revised suspension damping help to cut lap times.

And its new duo-tone colour scheme and graphics are sharper than ever. YZ250 2-stroke: The legend lives on!

Features


Race-bred ergonomics

Race-bred ergonomics

The YZ250 is already regarded as one of the most agile handling dirt bikes, and with its new narrower bodywork and a flatter seat you’ll find it easier to shift your bodyweight when braking, cornering or accelerating, giving you a higher degree of control.

Industry-leading KYB suspension

Industry-leading KYB suspension

Yamaha’s SSS (Speed Sensitive System) KYB front forks are second to none, and on the new model the low speed damping settings at the front and rear are revised to give improved handling.

250cc YPVS 2-stroke engine

250cc YPVS 2-stroke engine

The outstanding 250cc 2-stroke engine delivers instant power on demand. Equipped with a torque-boosting YPVS (Yamaha Power Valve System) and driving through a 5-speed transmission, this compact and lightweight unit loves to race hard.

Powerful braking system

Powerful braking system

Braking performance is taken to the next level with a powerful new front brake set up, that uses a more rigid twin-pot caliper with larger diameter 25.4mm pistons that give a much larger pad contact area. And the new 240mm rear disc reduces weight while maintaining the same level of stopping power.

Lightweight aluminium chassis

Lightweight aluminium chassis

The lightweight aluminium chassis is manufactured with a built-in rigidity balance, that is designed to allow a certain amount of flex that gives valuable feedback.

High-efficiency air intake

High-efficiency air intake

By redesigning the side panels, rear fender, seat base and rear frame, Yamaha’s engineers have reduced the resistance to fresh air entering the intake. Together with a redesigned exhaust system this gives more efficient engine operation for stronger performance.

New generation colour and graphics

New generation colour and graphics

The slim new bodywork is finished in new generation duo-tone colour scheme featuring a combination of Yamaha Blue and matte dark blue, along with new wear-resistant in-mould graphics.

Newly designed slimline bodywork

Newly designed slimline bodywork

The YZ250 comes with newly-designed slimline bodywork that gives this legendary bike a sharp and athletic look. The fuel tank and radiator shrouds are narrower than the previous model, giving a much more compact riding position with enhanced mobility, when weight shifting, and even higher levels of cornering agility.
