- The all-new, Bilateral Beam frame is specific to the 250 and is more compact than the previous generation chassis. This places the rider closer to the front wheel, which delivers superb rigidity balance for unmatched lightweight handling and cornering. This nimbleness lets the rider get on the gas sooner out of corners and cross the finish line with less fatigue – even on long motos.
- The optimized engine delivers a new level of power in low-to-midrange, with a great torquey feel, exactly where riders want it. That is due to the new straight intake boot that enhances breathing, new carburetor that provides excellent throttle response and fuel atomization, and redesigned valve train components that reduce inertial mass and boost low end torque. Exhaust is also enhanced with a new D-shaped exhaust port and newly designed exhaust system. Ongoing refinement to the suspension and engine produces an amazingly balanced, light-handling machine with performance that’s accessible to all levels of riders.
- All new styling emphasizes the bike’s light weight and nimble handling character. The sharp, horizontal lines set the bike apart, with a clean, aggressive look.
- KYB® suspension has been recalibrated front and rear and is tuned to work with the new Bilateral Beam frame for unmatched handling. The clutch lever has a lighter pull feel even though the clutch has stronger engagement. The new clutch also has a wider engagement range that will give riders an advantage off the line. . . shift after shift, moto after moto.
- There’s no disputing the YZ250F’s unmatched four-stroke prowess – it was the 1st four-stroke 250 motocross bike on the market, the 1st to win an international race, the 1st to win an AMA® Supercross ® and the 1st to take an AMA® U.S. Supercross Championship® title, as well as the first to win an AMA® National race.
