Based on the legendary 249cc YZ liquid-cooled reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine, the YZ250X runs a revised compression ratio, exhaust port timing, Yamaha Power Valve System timing and a model-specific CDI unit.
To increase rider confidence in challenging cross country conditions, new smoothly integrated body panels, more narrow fuel tank design, slimmer shroud width and flatter seat all combine to enable greater freedom of movement forward and back, allowing the rider to easily shift body weight for better control.

2 Stroke Power Tuned for Off Road
Legendary YZ250 249cc liquid-cooled reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine, a new compression ratio, new exhaust port timing, updated CDI unit – all focused on making a wide, controllable power character ideal for off road racing.
YZ250 Based Frame
A carefully engineered, advanced aluminium frame and swingarm give the YZ250X the famous handling proven by the championship winning YZ250 motocross machine on tracks around the world. Tips the scales at just 104kg with all fluids – which makes it lighter than a four-stroke.
Smooth-shifting, five-speed, wide-ratio transmission ensures proper gearing from tight woods sections to wide-open fire roads.
New exhaust expansion chamber is designed especially for the new YZ250X, and is narrower both horizontally and vertically for clearance on tight, technical trails, while still providing excellent exhaust efficiency.
The YZ250X is focused on off-road competition and receives the same features as 125X such as 18-inch rear wheel, wide-ratio gearing - five speed in this case - standard side stand, sealed O-ring chain, reserve fuel petcock, new headlight and newly adopted scraper between the fork's dust and oil seal, all adding up to exciting performance.
A racy ‘gripper’ type seat and narrow fuel tank combine with a tapered aluminium handlebar and adjustable mounts to create greater freedom of movement and more comfortable ergonomics for riders.
Enduro Specific Wheels and Tyres
Cross-country-spec Dunlop Geomax MX33 tyres front and rear are ready to head straight to the races. An 18-inch rear tyre has a taller sidewall to improve comfort and reduce pinch flats.
Industry Leading KYB Fork
Further improving the YZ250X's already renowned suspension performance, new front fork internals and revised suspension settings further improve bump absorption, cornering performance and comfort to better withstand the grueling demands of off-road and enduro-style racing.
Proven Braking Performance
An updated high performance braking system features larger front pistons, a more rigid caliper and a redesigned 270mm front rotor with a 30% increase in pad contact area, all combining to provide exceptional braking power and feel. The redesigned rear rotor maintains the same braking power while dropping outer diameter from 245mm to 240mm, reducing unsprung weight with no compromise on performance.
