  • A clutch lever position adjuster is adopted to allow adjustments based on rider preferences and accommodates differing hand sizes.
  • The latest Dunlop MX52® tires are used for the best off-road traction, performance reliability.
Engine:
  • 249cc liquid-cooled reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine is lightweight, compact, and features an incredibly wide, hard-hitting powerband.
  • Patented YPVS power-valve system combines crisp, hard-hitting, bottom-end acceleration with strong midrange and eye-opening top-end.
  • 38mm Keihin® PWK carburetor with power jet and throttle position sensor (TPS) provides precise fuel/air mixing and extra-crisp throttle response throughout the powerband.
  • Special-design carbon fiber reed-valve petals improve throttle response and engine performance across the entire rpm range.
  • Smooth-shifting, five-speed, close-ratio transmission with heavy-duty, multiplate clutch.
  • Primary kickstarter ensures smooth, easy starting action and reduced weight.
  • Large-capacity radiator features a ten-row core with four louvers for maximum cooling efficiency.
  • Digital CDI ignition system delivers precise spark for faster, stronger response anywhere in the powerband.
  • Trick, works-style clutch lever features race-spec barrel adjuster for on the fly adjustability.
Chassis/Suspension:
  • YZ250F-style front-brake caliper and wave-style front and rear discs minimize unsprung weight and provide excellent stopping power.
  • The KYB® 48mm forks feature the Speed-Sensitive System that uses piston speed to control damping force for super-precise handling and a smooth ride.

  • Removable aluminum rear subframe is constructed of square-section tubing for reduced weight.
  • Rear, fully adjustable KYB® shock features a steel shock spring and reduced-friction Kashima coating of 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 all add up to fantastic rear wheel control and a sweet ride.
  • Lightweight 21-inch front and 19-inch rear Excel® rims provide exceptional durability and help reduce unsprung weight for optimal suspension, performance, and handling.
  • Tapered rear wheel spacers ease sliding the rear wheel into place for quicker tire changes.
  • Premium Dunlop® knobbies offer race-spec traction and wear.
