No what, a dirt bike the basic features which make it a blast on the tracks and but the features that mark a in this case are the push button and digital enduro computer with speedometer, and tripmeter.

Inspired on the YZ250F the WR250F has made a name for as one of the most light, versatile and power delivering dirt on the market today, and in order to know where it heads, we see better where it comes


Launched in 1998, the of the first R1, the WR250F was and still is of Yamaha’s big future plans until this time proved very efficient and Also participating at the four-… it caught the big wave in what technical achievements and inspirations the YZ250F motocrosser.

First, there’s the five-titanium-valved a Yamaha unbeaten characteristic by the light chassis and comfortable position. These are the main which have contributed at the WR name grow so fast and the didn’t miss them at

Like most Yamahas of the the WR250F was kind of a brute it came to strong acceleration and power delivery so if you’re a customer of the time, there are chances that you would be scared of it. But as you can suppose, refinements came and after 2001 it a little more user-friendly 2003 made it a real companion.

By this time you needed a few twists and turns in to accommodate with it and start all the way up to the 13,500 rpm redline. Imagine how the is now.


Today, the decent Japanese alternative for off-roader is the Honda CRF250X as it the same recipe. That in a powerful, compact bike has undergone a severe diet, it perfect for both trails and tracks. Electrically started, the 249cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-… engine is the perfect for our bike. Taking in consideration the suspension and wide-ratio gearing, the is a real blast.

Shall I even dare the $6,699 MSRP?

KTM presents the 250 SIXDAYS, a dirt bike has got the engine performance and chassis to sit next to the Yamaha and Honda. The is new for 2009 and has power coming a 248.6cc single-cylinder four-… that can be both kick and started. Weight has been and ergonomics improved so that it make a point from the corner it takes.

You cannot about KTM without mentioning as the manufacturers are declared competitors. In case, the TE 250 becomes the subject of as it is equipped with the only injected motor in this Powered by the also electrically and started 249,5 liquid-cooled four-… DOHC four-valved-engine, the Husqvarna TE250 is the last but the fiercest competitor for the Yamaha


What is so great these dirt bikes is they look way better the dual-sport models and get closer to the bikes that inspired creation. As you could read this is also the case of the WR has been derived from the ending up looking like a racing bike.

With big alloy wheels (21 front and 18 inches rear) it suitable to deal with any of terrain, pass through and jump over logs. The is pretty low (38.6 inches) and helps at keeping the thing in when having it put in those of situations.

Styling is also with a pair of aggressive and the “knitted” headlight.

The Blue and coloring is what gives maker particularity and apart the white number plates, and blue is what it is all about.


It is hard not to think at racing when riding the WR250F as this bike is a reminder of the 2009 Yamaha even if not being necessarily on the motocross track. Very and easy to work with, the model year unveils all of riding on an aluminum frame meets a perfect balance resistance and rigidity.

The biker familiar with her/his fairly quick, but at least we that the machine makes all the for things to be that way. No as the start button ensures engine starts at all temperatures, the is positioned only 38.6 from the ground and there’s an kickstand with which who come from motocross have the joy of getting used

Surprisingly, the seat isn’t narrow and at least at the start of the day it pretty well accommodating. The are positioned at quick reach and the were also built ergonomics in mind. These culminate into kind of a up and go’ riding position is similar to the one of motocross bikes.

Yamaha WR 250 F

good as long as you weren’t for an enduro model, but not vice-versa.

on a 249cc liquid-cooled, DOHC engine with five valves, this WR’s is enormously capable and still not injected. No problem. Fed through a Keihin FCR flat-slide carburetor, a twist of the throttle in any of the five (preferably the first three) the engine’s torquey character and exhaust grunt.

From my sensors can detect Yamaha at both experienced and beginning with the WR250F. So it can provide an rush to those who seem but know what they’re and stand as a light and versatile bike for those who are just

Hill climbs are children’s for the quarter-liter Yamaha, but this enjoys descending as much as it ascending. The Kayaba inverted offering 11.8 inches of front and the single shock for 12.2 inches are there to sure that even guys won’t come off of bike with broken after a more aggressive session.

Also, the 21-inch and 18-inch rear proved for harsh riding terrains and the gripped really good to surfaces, even rocks. good, especially when needed to stop. Otherwise, the brakes worth nothing though they only to stop a 260 lbs + rider mass.

feels light and responsive and the remains stable at high and under strong acceleration. You can’t query the compact ability to go fast and safe the corners as you can’t query any of the abilities of this thing.

The is very helpful for those who get enough of this bike and it till dark falls and you can buy one of those street legal that I keep hearing That when you’ll be unstoppable!


With a price tag of $6,699, the Yamaha is a great for the buck, leaving you trying to another one with five per cylinder at this kind of In fact, no matter the amount, search will be in vain. The WR250F is also green approved for California.


Not improved for the present year, but well balanced and with to spare, the Yamaha WR250F has its trail days sorted something that we can’t say all of the similar Japanese models. So it has to its competitors in Europe and prove to what a blast it is.
