Out-of-the-Box Hare Scramble/GNCC® racer
Based on the championship-winning YZ250F that features Yamaha’s revolutionary front-intake, rear-exhaust, liquid-cooled, DOHC 4-stroke power plant with an added sixth gear, wide ratio transmission and a range of cross country upgrades, the YZ250FX is an “out-of-the-box” Hare Scrambles and GNCC® competition machine.
High performance four-stroke engine
The compact, powerful YZ250FX engine includes all the same race-developed technologies of the championship-winning YZ250F, tuned for cross country performance. Revised intake duct, intake port, exhaust camshaft profile, muffler and balancer weight position combine to further improve power and usability across the entire rev range.
The highly developed aluminum bilateral beam frame features precisely tuned flex characteristics for competition-ready performance. The forged section at the swingarm pivot, and improved engine mounting brackets provide a nimble lightweight feeling in tight, technical terrain while still providing control in fast sections. As always, Yamaha’s class-leading KYB® suspension ensures maximum control and traction.
Innovative Yamaha Power Tuner App
Yamaha’s free-of-charge Power Tuner App puts the flexibility and precision tunability of the GYTR® Power Tuner into your smartphone. Make fueling and ignition timing changes instantly and upload them to the bike for ultimate track-side tuning.
Selectable fuel maps
Increasing the YZ250FX's ability to tackle a wide range of riding environments, two optimized fuel injection maps—both of which can be loaded and tuned in the Yamaha Power Tuner App—are accessible through a handlebar-mounted map switch for on-the-fly adjustments to changing riding conditions. Pre-loaded maps include one for fast, aggressive high-traction conditions and one with a smoother engine character for extreme, low-traction conditions.
High-spec braking components
The high performance braking system provides exceptional stopping power and control through high-spec componentry, including a rigid front caliper with larger diameter pistons, aggressive brake pad compound and a 270 mm front rotor. The rear brake gets a lightweight rear calliper and hanger with a 240 mm rear rotor to reduce unsprung weight.
Sharp, durable graphics scheme
Sharp competition-inspired graphics scheme highlights the YZ's unmatched racing pedigree. Premium Yamaha blue and dark blue graphics are embedded to provide excellent durability and scratch resistance. Dark radiator louvers add to the aggressive look.
Cross country features
With the electric starting system, an 8,61 L fuel tank, rugged plastic skid plate, 45,72 cm rear wheel and high performance Dunlop® Geomax MX33 tyres, the YZ250FX is ready to win right out of the box.
Competition-ready engine performance
The revolutionary front-intake/rear-exhaust, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, four-stroke engine has been developed for victories in the highly competitive GNCC® and Hare Scrambles race series. Intake and exhaust ports work with a higher compression piston for a wider spread of power without losing top-end performance.
Forward-thinking engine design
Reversing the cylinder head while placing the intake forward and the exhaust to the rear allow for a straight shot, downdraft intake and straight exhaust port for maximized engine performance.
A six-speed transmission is used to ensure the right gear is available for the wide variety of terrain found in cross country racing. Updated gearing ratios and a heavy-duty, large-diameter clutch bring enhanced durability in the extreme conditions of a three-hour GNCC® race.
Mass-Centralized electric starter system
The YZ250FX features a compact, centrally-mounted electric starter system to minimize restart delays mid-race and add convenience everywhere else. Powered by a high-capacity lightweight four-cell lithium-ion battery, the system adds minimal weight.
Advanced bilateral aluminium frame
An all-aluminium bilateral beam frame taken from the class-leading YZ250F provides strength, lightness and durability for cross country racing conditions and comes standard with a rugged plastic skid plate.
Industry favorite Speed Sensitive System KYB® fully adjustable spring-type forks and a KYB® rear shock have been thoroughly tested and tuned specifically for cross country racing.
High-spec braking components
The high performance braking system provides exceptional stopping power and control through high-spec componentry, including a rigid front caliper with larger diameter pistons, aggressive brake pad compound and a 270 mm front rotor. The rear brake gets a lightweight rear caliper and hanger with a 240 mm rear rotor to reduce unsprung weight.
The compact bodywork eases the rider’s movement across the machine in tough terrain. The fuel tank provides 8,17 L of fuel with a larger fuel cap opening. Quality graphics are embedded in the body moldings for long-lasting good looks.
Special cross country racing Dunlop® Geomax MX33 tyres maximize traction while delivering excellent durability.
Quick-adjust clutch, wide 55 mm platform footpegs, four-position rubber-mounted handlebar clamps, aluminum handlebars and a side stand come standard for added rider convenience. The YZ250FX is also pre-wired for an optional radiator fan for the most grueling conditions.
The air cleaner cover features tool-free access to the air filter. Thanks to a WR-style fuel level sensor in the tank, the YZ250FX includes a convenient low fuel indicator along with an engine warning indicator on the handlebar.
