This purpose built enduro racer is built for riding in the bush – fast.
Developed as a sister machine to the YZ250X two-stroke, this cross country racer is equipped with a shorty muffler and slightly firmer suspension settings than WR250F. And with no lights, speedo, bashplate or a radiator fan, the FX tips the scales at 4kg lighter than the road registrable WR250F.
Like YZ250X, the YZ250FX is fitted with a off-road kit that includes an bashplate, handguards, rearview mirror, lights and a horn. This allows the model to qualify for recreational registration in applicable states.
This revolutionary rearward slanted 250cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC 4-stroke with 4 titanium valves is based on the YZ250F, add in a sixth gear and wide ratio transmission, among other modifications, makes it an “out-of-the-box” cross country competition machine.
The YZ250FX benefits from a newly designed hydro-formed bilateral beam frame constructed from ten different types of forged, cast and extruded aluminium parts. This frame excels in the feeling of lightness, front-wheel ground contact and traction making for excellent maneuverability in tight trail riding.
Industry leading KYB air/oil separation Speed Sensitive System forks and a KYB rear shock suspension with settings designed specifically for cross country racing.
The exhaust system is based on the current YZ250F, combined with fuel injection, this contributes to mass centralisation and outstanding off-road performance. The YZ250FX is the first YZ to feature electric start which helps reduce rider fatigue.
The GYTR Power Tuner accessory offers riders a huge benefit by allowing customised fuel injection settings to fit their personal preferences.
