2023 Yamaha YZ250


Slimline bodywork
The YZ250 2-stroke comes with slimline bodywork that gives this legendary bike a sharp and athletic look. The fuel tank and radiator shrouds are narrow, giving a much more compact riding position with enhanced mobility and even higher levels of cornering agility.

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.

Industry-leading KYB suspension
Yamaha’s SSS (Speed Sensitive System) KYB front forks are top of the class, with low speed damping settings at the front and rear giving improved stability and handling.

High-efficiency air intake
With it’s aggressive styling, Yamaha’s engineers have reduced the resistance to fresh air entering the intake. Together with an optimal exhaust system this gives a more efficient engine operation for stronger performance.

Product 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.

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!
