Now available at a ready to ride price of $12,999 incl GST, the YZ250FX is delivered in AUS fitted with an off-road kit that includes handguards, rear view mirror, lights and a horn. This qualifies the model for recreational registration in applicable states.
Featuring Yamaha’s revolutionary front-intake, rear-exhaust, liquid-cooled, DOHC four-stroke engine, there’s also a six-speed, wide-ratio transmission, and a new heavy-duty large-diameter clutch delivering enhanced durability.
Power is controlled by Yamaha’s exclusive smartphone Power Tuner app that puts precision tunability in the rider’s hands. A handlebar-mounted button switches between two preselected engine maps on the fly.
The engine’s cylinder head, exhaust system, fuel injection, drivetrain and electrical system have been tuned for linear power delivery across the rev range as well as tougher durability – perfect for fast riding in the bush.
The new bilateral beam frame features forged sections at the swingarm pivot and engine mounting brackets to provide a nimble lightweight feeling in tight technical terrain, while Yamaha’s class leading KYB suspension ensures maximum control and traction. The fully adjustable spring-type forks with speed-sensitive damping, and rear shock with large 50mm piston have been thoroughly tested and tuned for cross country racing.
