Cross country and enduro racing are currently experiencing increased popularity and growth. Yamaha is pleased to announce the second model in our cross country lineup ... the new YZ250X. Based on the legendary YZ250 2-stroke, the new "X" version has been developed using all of Yamaha's extensive 2-stroke knowledge to produce a model that offers a high level of performance for cross country racing. The YZ250X is a lightweight, compact machine that is both exciting to ride and affordable to own and maintain.
Performance: The YZ250X is a super light weight package that offers serious 2-stroke power. The engineers have modified the cylinder head, adjusted the compression ratio, revised the exhaust port timing and changed the gear ratios in the 5-speed transmission to better suit cross country racing. The YZ250X engine offers a good depth of power with an easy to use engine character.
The Extras: New cross country focused chassis features include revised suspension settings front & rear, an 18" rear wheel for more puncture resistance, a new aluminum side stand and a new fuel petcock that offers a reserve position for peace of mind.
