2-STROKES. 1ST PLACE.
Updated for 2022; the YZ250 offers pure performance and full-throttle adrenaline in a lightweight and reliable two-stroke machine.
Features may include:
The 249cc liquid-cooled reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine is lightweight; compact and fun; with an incredibly wide; hard-hitting powerband.
Patented YPVS™ combines crisp; hard-hitting bottom-end acceleration with strong mid-range and top-end.
Advanced 38mm Hitachi Astemo® Keihin PWK38S carburetor with power jet and throttle position sensor provides precise fuel/air mixing and extra-crisp throttle response.
An updated lightweight braking system features larger front pistons; a more rigid caliper; a redesigned 270mm front rotor with a 30% increase in pad contact area and higher friction pad material; all combining to provide exceptional braking power and feel. The redesigned rear rotor maintains the same braking power while dropping outer diameter from 245mm to 240mm; further reducing unsprung weight with no compromise on performance.
The fully adjustable KYB® 48mm forks feature the Speed-Sensitive System which uses piston speed to control the damping force for super-precise handling; superb bump absorption and 11.8 inches of suspension travel.
Fully adjustable KYB® shock features reduced-friction Kashima Coat™ internals; 12.4 inches of travel; separate adjusters for high- and low-speed compression damping; and a full lock oil rebound system for increased comfort. It all adds up to fantastic rear wheel control and a sweet ride.
Complete with an aluminum handlebar; two-position adjustable handlebar clamp; wide foot pegs; gripper seat and adjustable clutch lever with works-style cable adjuster; the YZ250 is competition-ready straight out of the crate.
