2021 YZ250X Yamaha Off-Road Motorcycle

Top Features

The YZ250X is explicitly designed for Hare Scrambles and GNCC® racing. For the ideal cross-country power plant, the YPVSTM-equipped 249cc two-stroke engine is paired with a wide-ratio five-speed gearbox. For the perfect mix of stiffness and flex, the ultra-lightweight YZ250-spec frame includes a meticulously designed blend of aluminum castings, forgings, and extrusions. The KYB® speed-sensitive spring-type suspension is an industry-leading fully adjustable suspension tested and adjusted especially for cross-country racers.

With a solid design from the front fender to the rear brake guard, the YZ250X maintains the racing history of the YZ250 motocrosser. The YZ250X is ready to race right out of the box, with an aluminum tapered handlebar, YZ-F-style footpegs, gripper seat, and off-road specialized Dunlop® tires. For GNCC riding, the 18-inch rear wheel, sealed O-ring chain, wide ratio gearbox, small expansion chamber, off-road tires and suspension settings, a standard side stand, and fuel tank petcock with reserve position are ideal. With excellent stopping power and controllability, a large 270mm front disc brake and high-performance pad material provide superb machine control and performance.

Engine

The YZ250X has an altered compression ratio, exhaust port timing, updated Yamaha Power Valve System (YPVS) timing, and a model-specific CDI unit to provide a broad, controlled power character suited for cross country racing. The unique Yamaha Power Valve System combines bottom-end acceleration with powerful middle and eye-popping top-end on the YZ250X, which has a broader opening time than the YZ250 for smoother power.

The YZ250X has a unique small exhaust expansion chamber that improves horizontal and vertical clearance on narrow, rugged terrain while maintaining outstanding exhaust efficiency. Throughout the powerband, the 38mm Keihin® PWK carburetor with a throttle position sensor delivers accurate fuel/air mixing and sharp throttle response. Carbon fiber reed-valve petals with a unique design enhance throttle response and engine performance throughout the rpm range.

From dense forests to wide-open fire roads, the smooth-shifting, five-speed, wide-ratio gearbox provides appropriate gearing. For optimum cooling effectiveness, this large-capacity radiator has a ten-row core with four louvers. The digital CDI ignition system is specially designed for the YZ250X and provides the real spark for a quicker, more robust response anywhere in the powerband.

Chassis/Suspension

The YZ250X has the exact legendary handling as the championship-winning YZ250 motocross bike on circuits all over the globe, thanks to a meticulously designed aluminum frame and swingarm. For weight savings, the removable aluminum rear sub-frame is made of square-section tubing.

With excellent stopping power and controllability, a large 270mm front disc brake and high-performance pad material provide superb machine control and performance. KYB® spring-type fork with speed-sensitive damping is an industry leader that utilizes piston speed to regulate damping force for super-accurate handling and a smooth ride. This bike is tuned for cross country racing, with minor wasted strokes and sharp shocks for the rider.

For improved comfort, control, and excellent rear-wheel traction, the rear KYB® shock has 12.4 inches of travel, separate adjustments for high- and low-speed compression damping, and a complete lock oil rebound system. Specific to cross-country skiing, the front and rear Dunlop® Geomax AT81 tires are ready to race right away. A larger sidewall on an 18-inch rear tire improves comfort and reduces pinch flats.

Additional Features

Riders benefit from increased flexibility of movement and more comfortable ergonomics thanks to a sporty “gripper”-style seat and compact fuel tank, which are coupled with a tapered aluminum handlebar and adjustable mounts. With an 18-inch rear tire, wide-ratio gearing, a standard side stand, sealed O-ring chain, and a reserve fuel petcock, the YZ250X is designed for off-road usage.
