2020 WR250R released

Yamaha Motor Australia is excited to announce the release of the 2020 WR250R, available in Team Yamaha Blue and White. Pricing is unchanged from the 2019 model at just $9599 incl GST, ride away.
Since its release, Yamaha’s WR250R has attracted a cult following of new and experienced riders. Proving to be much more than just another trail bike, WR250R has a well-deserved reputation as a superb lightweight adventure tourer, capable at tackling a desert crossing or weekday commutes.

At its heart is a liquid-cooled DOHC four-valve single-cylinder engine that pushes hard all the way to 10,000 rpm, making it one of the strongest 250cc singles ever built by Yamaha. Its aluminium semi-double cradle frame has been developed using technology featured on Yamaha’s race-winning YZ250F motocross, and WR250F endurance machines.

Front and rear suspension features fork legs adjustable for preload and rebound/compression and a rear shock absorber connected to a lightweight aluminium swingarm that’s also adjustable for preload and rebound/compression.

Excellent fuel economy and class-leading throttle response are delivered by a fuel injection system that constantly monitors intake air pressure, as well as crank and throttle position, to deliver the optimum fuel mixture right across the rev range.

The six-speed transmission has been specifically developed for the WR250R to optimise the power characteristics of the high-compression short-stroke engine. Ratios have been carefully selected to deliver performance and drivability in a wide variety of conditions and situations. 

A compact LCD instrument panel displays all the information the rider needs, without being over-crowded or over-complicated. The bright display includes a speedometer, clock and tripmeter as well as a range of warning lights.

The 2020 WR250R is available in showrooms now. Contact your local Yamaha dealer to discover why this entry-level adventure bike has such a huge following.
