Chassis / Suspension

  • HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKING SYSTEM: The high performance braking system features a 270mm front rotor, 240mm rear rotor, large front pistons and rigid calipers, all combining to provide exceptional braking power and feel.
  • INDUSTRY-LEADING KYB® FORK: The fully adjustable KYB® 48mm forks feature the Speed Sensitive System which uses piston speed to control the damping force for super-precise handling, superb bump absorption and 11.8 inches of suspension travel.
  • ADVANCED KYB® SHOCK: Fully adjustable KYB® shock features reduced-friction Kashima Coat™ internals, 12.4 inches of travel, separate adjusters for high- and low-speed compression damping, and a full lock oil rebound system for increased comfort. It all adds up to fantastic rear wheel control and a sweet ride.
  • ALUMINUM FRAME: A carefully engineered, advanced aluminum frame and swingarm give the Monster Energy® Edition YZ250 the best handling in the 250cc class.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT SUBFRAME: Removable aluminum rear subframe is constructed of square-section tubing for reduced weight.

Engine

  • EXHILARATING TWO-STROKE POWER: The 249cc liquid-cooled reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine is lightweight, compact and fun, with an incredibly wide, hard-hitting powerband.
  • YAMAHA POWER VALVE SYSTEM: Patented Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS™) combines crisp, hard-hitting bottom-end acceleration with strong mid-range and top-end.
  • ADVANCED CARBURETOR: Advanced 38mm Hitachi Astemo® Keihin PWK38S carburetor with power jet and throttle position sensor provides precise fuel/air mixing and extra-crisp throttle response.
  • RACE-DEVELOPED INTAKE: Special-design carbon fiber reed-valve petals improve the throttle response and engine performance across the entire rpm range.
  • CLOSE-RATIO TRANSMISSION: Smooth-shifting, close-ratio five-speed transmission with a heavy-duty, multiplate clutch ensure confident gear changes in all conditions.
  • HIGH-CAPACITY RADIATOR: High-capacity radiator with dark louvers deliver maximum cooling efficiency and an aggressive look.
  • DIGITAL IGNITION: Digital CDI system delivers precise spark for faster, stronger response anywhere in the rev range.
