YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition

Feature Benefits

TOP FEATURES

  • New, Modern Monster Energy® YZ Styling
    Aggressive, race-inspired styling—from the sharp new bodywork including front and rear fenders, radiator shrouds and number plates, to the smaller details like fork guards, rear brake disc and caliper protectors, and wide foot pegs—spotlights the YZ250's extensive two-stroke racing pedigree from every angle. A Monster Energy®‑inspired graphics package completes the factory-ride look and feel.
  • Improved Rider Ergonomics
    A new flatter seat and more narrow fuel tank design, along with smoothly integrated body panels and slimmer shroud width, combine to enable greater freedom of movement forward and back, allowing the rider to easily shift body weight for increased control and confidence.
  • High Performance Braking System
    Lightweight braking system features larger front pistons, a more rigid caliper, a redesigned 270mm front rotor with a 30% increase in pad contact area and higher friction pad material, 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, further reducing unsprung weight with no compromise on performance.
  • Revised Suspension Damping
    Further improving the YZ250's already renowned suspension performance, front and rear suspension has been revised to further improve bump absorption and cornering ability. KYB® inverted front fork now includes a leaf spring in the mid-speed valve for increased performance and comfort.
  • New Air Intake Design
    Updated intake design allows for a straighter, more efficient draw of air into the intake tract.
  • Exhilarating Two-Stroke Power
    The 249cc liquid-cooled YPVS™-equipped reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine is lightweight, compact and fun, with an incredibly wide, hard-hitting powerband.
  • Lightweight Frame
    A carefully engineered, advanced aluminum frame and swingarm give the YZ250 class-leading track performance.
  • Rider-Friendly Chassis
    Well-tuned chassis and ultra-light weight means intuitive handling, less rider fatigue, and a confidence-boosting sense of control.
  • High Performance Braking System
    Lightweight braking system features larger front pistons, a more rigid caliper, a redesigned 270mm front rotor with a 30% increase in pad contact area and higher friction pad material, 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, further reducing unsprung weight with no compromise on performance.
