2-STROKES. 1 GOAL.
Engineered with all the reliability and durability you've come to expect from Yamaha; this 2-stroke was born to win Cross Country races.
Features may include:
Based on the legendary YZ250 249cc liquid-cooled reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine; the YZ250X utilizes a revised compression ratio; exhaust port timing; revised Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS™) timing and a model-specific CDI unit—all focused on creating a wide; controllable power character ideal for cross country racing.
The YZ250X features the patented Yamaha Power Valve System—with broader opening timing compared to the YZ250 for smoother power—to combine bottom-end acceleration with strong mid-range and top-end.
Unique compact exhaust expansion chamber is designed especially for the YZ250X to improve both horizontal and vertical clearance on tight; technical trails while still providing excellent exhaust efficiency.
The industry-leading; fully adjustable KYB® spring-type fork with speed-sensitive damping uses piston speed to control the damping force for super-precise handling and a smooth ride. With minimal wasted stroke or abrupt shocks for the rider; this bike is tuned for the demands of cross country racing.
Fully adjustable KYB® rear shock features 12.4 inches of travel; separate adjusters for high- and low-speed compression damping and a full lock oil rebound system for increased comfort; control and fantastic rear wheel traction in challenging conditions.
A carefully engineered aluminum frame and swingarm give the YZ250X the famous handling proven by the championship-winning YZ motocross riders on tracks around the world.
A racy "gripper"-type seat and narrow fuel tank combined with a tapered aluminum handlebar and adjustable mounts create greater freedom of movement and more comfortable ergonomics for riders.
