If you take a at the overall bodywork, the WR250X very much like any liter dirt or of-road but the street rubber sets it not far the dust, but just enough to it clean. So is the supermoto track appropriate for it? Yes and No.

On one side, the 17-inch spoked wheels with tires are the ideal solution for supermoto bikes, but with a inches high seat, the will need a pretty rider to touch the asphalt his heels. Also, the dirt will put no problems to it so this help us clear things but immerse even more this dilemma.

And yet, the liquid-cooled DOHC four-…; single-cylinder engine is more capable to make a very impression in both situations as it is Characteristic to Yamaha. the system intake air pressure sensor and position sensor for great response as well as fuel Actually, since last Yamaha answers to everyone’s regarding fuel consumption by that their WR250X can go 71 with a single gallon.

The is the centerpiece creating this so we’ll start by mentioning the frame isn’t your unit, but a motocross derived semi-double-cradle one. This great resistance and together the asymmetrical aluminum swingarm, adjustable 46mm fork and shock, ensures sharp and stability.

So I guess we’ll to call it either a dual motorcycle or a supermoto one even I prefer calling it versatility



Yamaha quite a unique combination their WR250X motorcycle and if plan to beat the Honda success is guaranteed. For starters, the powering Honda’s motard is a 223cc air-cooled SOHC two-valves, single-cylinder which is fed through a 30mm CV carburetor, but at mates to a six-speed gearbox in an to even up the scales.

Also, uses Showa suspensions and front and rear disc while the seat is positioned inches above the ground. a base MSRP of just the CRF230M won’t miss at all.

Kawasaki is definitely in for a of the action with their KLX250SF. a motorcycle which is aggressively styled than the and even features a more engine. The MSRP is also $5,599 but there’s plenty to this bike than

With a 249cc liquid-cooled, four-valves; single-cylinder engine might not get fuel injection, but very well with its CVK34 carburetor especially all that power is transmitted a six-speed gearbox. The seat is at 33.9 inches from the


Although the 2010 WR250X won’t find its among the “Top Ten Most Motorcycles” ever made, the looks just like it to in order to meet the purposes of its For example, the steel fuel is designed to offer the proper grip while the seat is and yet not harsh like in the case of bike’s motocross siblings. The cover is made out of a grippy so that if you’re still at 35.2 inches from the at least to be well “glued” to the

The handlebars bolt on the supermoto completed with mudguards and a surface. At the other end rolls a 17-inch supermoto wheel a 298mm waved disc The back end rolls on an identical only, which in this features a 230mm brake and a sprocket while being on to an asymmetrical and matte black swingarm.

The same color is for the frame.

But if you want to become of this motorcycle’s supermoto it is enough to get a glance of the outrageously positioned front and rear These too are designed to be simple and while still protecting the from mud. A small of that task also to the side panels, but their goal is to look like hug the gas tank and blend perfectly in the seat.

The graphics aren’t great though, but certainly the think for 2010’s White/Red scheme.

The WR250X’s frame is without a the most successfully designed of the machine. This semi-double-cradle is based on the famous WR250Fs; it three cast-aluminum sections and an rocker arm with crossmembers, cast-aluminum. moto123

Steering felt spot on and never to tuck the front while stable at the end of the straightaway. Clamping on the oversized front brake excellent stopping power and we still braking deeper the corners by the time our day was finished.

Compared to the WR-R, it has a beefier brake, 17-inch wheels and street-oriented suspension settings. it has the travel, handling, weight, position and ergonomics to work OK the tires definitely make it suited for the pavement. amadirectlink

Yamaha certainly knows to put on its products, especially when introduce one-off features them into class This is also the case the 2010 WR250X as the bike is the one in its class to feature fuel and comes with a base of $6,490.
