2018 Yamaha YZ250F

CHAMPIONSHIP-PROVEN!

The 2-straight MX & SX West Champ and undisputed benchmark in 250 motocross bikes.

Additional Features

  • EMBEDDED GRAPHICS: Yamaha’s unique embedded graphics are built into the bodywork for extended durability, resisting both peeling and damage.
  • ADJUSTABLE HANDLEBAR MOUNTS: The 4-position adjustable handlebar mounts are rubber mounted to improve comfort and reduce handlebar vibration.
  • RACE WINNING DETAILS: The YZ450F includes top-spec details, including 1-1/8 in. aluminum tapered handlebars, wide 55 mm footpegs, a quick-adjust clutch perch, stylish rims and gold chain.
  • SIMPLIFIED SERVICING: Sleek air cleaner cover helps prevent contact with the quick-release quarter-turn Dzus® air box fasteners and provides tool-less access to the air filter, positioned at the front of the bike to avoid roost from the rear wheel.

Chassis / Suspension

  • BILATERAL BEAM ALUMINUM FRAME: A Yamaha's renowned bilateral beam aluminum frame features compact overall dimensions that balance minimal weight with the strength and rigidity needed for race-winning performance. The frame's swingarm pivot section and engine mounting brackets are tuned for stability, responsiveness and sharp cornering.
  • MASS-CENTRALIZATION: The engine, aluminum muffler and fuel tank are positioned close to the machine's center of gravity. This layout contributes to centralized mass for a lightweight handling feeling on the track. The wide 55mm footpegs help lower the rider's center of gravity for improved machine balance, control and rider comfort.
  • 270 MM FRONT BRAKE: A large 270mm front brake disc is the same system fitted to the YZ450F™, and uses an aggressive pad material for exceptional stopping power and braking control. Out back, a durable heat-resistant rear rotor boosts brake durability.Refined Suspension Settings
  • REFINED SUSPENSION SETTINGS: Industry-leading, fully adjustable KYB® spring-type fork with speed sensitive damping features advanced valving for improved suspension feel and balance. The linkage type rear suspension features a KYB® rear shock also features settings optimized for ideal damping characteristics.

Engine

  • INNOVATIVE ENGINE DESIGN: The liquid-cooled, DOHC 4-valve, fuel-injected engine features a forward-positioned straight downdraft intake with symmetrical intake and exhaust ports. A compact, high compression combustion chamber delivers outstanding engine character with a focus on top-end power delivery.
  • PISTON, ROD AND CRANKSHAFT BALANCE: A flat-top forged piston features a bridge-box design for additional strength with minimal weight. The piston, rings and DLC-coated piston pin, along with the offset cylinder configuration, all reduce friction loss and contribute to quick response. The engine’s intake ports, cam profiles, high-strength connecting rod and optimized crank and counterbalancer all work together to produce potent high-rpm power with user-friendly delivery and exceptional reliability.
  • ADVANCED ECU AND FUEL INJECTION: The adjustable fuel injection system uses a 44mm throttle body fed by a high-pressure battery-less electric fuel pump. This ensures optimum fuel atomization and air/fuel calibration for excellent rideability in a wide range of riding conditions. The system controls the volume of fuel injected and the ignition timing based on engine rpm and throttle opening, providing hesitation-free response and controllability.
  • WRAPAROUND REAR POSITIONED EXHAUST LAYOUT: An innovative exhaust pipe design improves mass centralization and power development characteristics. This layout moves the rear end of the exhaust pipe farther forward and enables a muffler position close to the center of the mass.
  • DURABLE TRANSMISSION: The transmission gears, dogs and shift mechanisms are designed to smooth gear changes and improve durability under the heavy demands of motocross racing.
  • GYTR POWER TUNER READY ACCESSORY: GYTR Power Tuner lets owners adjust air/fuel mixture and ignition timing maps to match engine performance characteristics to the rider and track conditions in a matter of seconds with the push of a few buttons, as well as monitor engine diagnostic codes.

Top Features

  • INNOVATIVE ENGINE DESIGN: A liquid-cooled, DOHC 4-valve, fuel-injected engine with forward-positioned downdraft intake delivers class leading engine power. This design allows for unmatched mass centralization, concentrating the motorcycle’s key components—engine, fuel tank and exhaust system—toward the center of the motorcycle achieving light and nimble handling performance.
  • DURABLE TRANSMISSION: The transmission gears, dogs and shift mechanisms are designed to smooth gear changes and improve durability under the heavy demands of motocross racing.
  • BILATERAL BEAM ALUMINUM FRAME: A Yamaha’s renowned bilateral beam aluminum frame features compact overall dimensions that balance minimal weight with the strength and rigidity needed for race-winning performance. This frame features a new forged section at the swingarm pivot, and engine mounting brackets for tuned responsiveness, handling and unmatched lightweight feeling.
  • REFINED SUSPENSION SETTINGS: Industry-leading, fully adjustable KYB® spring-type fork with speed sensitive damping features advanced valving for improved suspension feel and balance. The linkage type rear suspension features a KYB® rear shock also features settings optimized for ideal damping characteristics.
