When you take your first look at the YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition, you just know that this is the ultimate replica bike. It features a revised, ergonomic chassis and slimline bodywork that ensures enhanced mobility and even higher levels of cornering agility. And in addition to all of that you’ll be the proud owner of a factory team-style bike, that is one of the most desirable 2-strokes in the paddock.
The combination of a high-powered 250cc 2-stroke YPVS (Yamaha Power Valve System) engine, lightweight aluminium chassis and one of the best suspension packages in its class makes this bike like no other and one of the most exciting motocross bikes you’ll ever ride. In its time it’s won everything worth winning in motocross, supercross and freestyle MX. Now Yamaha have made it even sharper.
Inspired by Yamaha’s MXGP and MX2 race-winning bikes, the YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition comes with exclusive black bodywork and factory team-style graphics that make this 250cc 2-stroke the ultimate replica race bike.
The YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition is already regarded as one of the most agile handling dirt bikes, and with its new narrower bodywork and a flatter seat you’ll find it easier to shift your bodyweight when braking, cornering or accelerating, giving you a higher degree of control.
By redesigning the side panels, rear fender, seat base and rear frame, Yamaha’s engineers have reduced the resistance to fresh air entering the intake. Together with a redesigned exhaust system this gives more efficient engine operation for stronger performance.
Braking performance is taken to the next level with a powerful new front brake set up, that uses a more rigid twin-pot caliper with larger diameter 25.4mm pistons that give a much larger pad contact area. And the new 240mm rear disc reduces weight while maintaining the same level of stopping power.
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.
The YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition comes with newly-designed slimline bodywork that gives this replica bike a sharp and athletic look. The fuel tank and radiator shrouds are narrower than the previous model, giving a much more compact riding position with enhanced mobility, when weight shifting, and even higher levels of cornering agility.
The lightweight aluminium chassis is manufactured with a built-in rigidity balance, that is designed to allow a certain amount of flex that gives valuable feedback.
Yamaha’s SSS (Speed Sensitive System) KYB front forks are second to none, and on the new model the low speed damping settings at the front and rear are revised to give improved handling.
