Key Features
⦁ Exhilarating Two-Stroke Power
The 249cc liquid-cooled YPVS™-equipped reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine is lightweight, compact, and fun, with an incredibly wide, hard-hitting powerband.

⦁ Lightweight Frame
A carefully engineered, advanced aluminum frame and swingarm give the YZ250 class-leading track performance.

⦁ Rider-Friendly Chassis
Well-tuned chassis and ultra-lightweight means intuitive handling, less rider fatigue, and a confidence-boosting sense of control.

⦁ Updated Braking System
An updated lightweight braking system features larger front pistons, a more rigid caliper, a redesigned 270mm front rotor with a 30% increase in the pad contact area, and higher friction pad material, all combined to provide exceptional braking power and feel. The redesigned rear rotor maintains the same braking power while dropping the outer diameter from 245mm to 240mm, further reducing unsprung weight with no compromise on performance.

⦁ New, Modern YZ Styling
Aggressive, race-inspired styling—from the sharp new embedded graphics, new bodywork including front and rear fenders, radiator shrouds and number plates, to the smaller details like fork guards, rear brake disc and caliper protectors, and wide foot pegs—spotlights the YZ250's extensive two-stroke racing pedigree from every angle.
