This purpose built enduro racer is built for riding in the bush – fast. Developed as an off-road version of the YZ250F, this cross country racer is equipped with enduro optimised engine and suspension settings.
For Australia, YZ250FX comes with an off road kit that includes handguards, rearview mirror, lights and a horn. This allows the model to qualify for recreational registration in applicable states.
Featuring Yamaha’s revolutionary front-intake, rear-exhaust, liquid-cooled, DOHC four-stroke engine, there’s also a six-speed, wide-ratio transmission, and a new heavy-duty large diameter clutch delivering enhanced durability.
All-new bodywork is more compact than ever, to ease the rider’s movement across the machine in tough terrain. The fuel tank now provides 8.2 litres of fuel with a larger fuel cap opening, and the graphics are still embedded in the body moldings for long-lasting good looks.
With the electric starting system, a 8.2L fuel tank, rugged plastic skid plate, 18-inch rear wheel and XC racing tyres, the YZ250FX is ready to win right out of the box.
Power is controlled by Yamaha’s exclusive smartphone Power Tuner app that puts precision tunability in the rider’s hands. A handlebar-mounted button switches between two preselected engine maps on the fly.
Yamaha’s class leading KYB suspension ensures maximum control and traction. The fully adjustable spring-type forks with speed-sensitive damping, and rear shock with large 50mm piston have been thoroughly tested and tuned for cross country racing.
The new bilateral beam frame features forged sections at the swingarm pivot and engine mounting brackets to provide a nimble lightweight feeling in tight technical terrain while still providing control in fast sections.
