This model’s liquid-cooled, four-stroke, electric start engine features a powerplant straight from the MXGP-dominant YZ250F that produces strong mid to top-end power while retaining class-leading low-end torque.
Tuned specifically for the WR250F, the lightweight aluminium, bilateral beam frame and model specific engine mounts have been designed with flex characteristics to improve bump absorption, traction, and cornering performance.
Settings on the industry-leading, fully adjustable KYB coil spring-type fork with enhanced speed-sensitive damping are tuned to suit the WR250F and off-road conditions. And the link-type rear suspension features a KYB shock with damping characteristics to match the sharp handling chassis.
Other chassis components such as the top triple clamp, handlebar mounts, and front axle complement the frame – and are also based on the winning YZ250F.
Dunlop Geomax EN91 ISDE-winning tyres are specified for high performance over a wide variety of terrain.
Strong braking performance is achieved with a light front brake caliper with large surface area brake pads and big front 270mm disc. A speed sensor ring sends information to the user-friendly multifunction meter that houses both engine and low fuel warning lights.
Riders can adjust their engine performance straight from their smartphone using the onboard wireless connectivity through the free of charge Yamaha Power Tuner app. Once settings are dialled-in, you can choose between two user-defined ECU maps on the fly via the handlebar mounted dual-mode engine map switch.
When combined with a lightweight, sharp-handling chassis and industry leading suspension package, the 2024 WR250F offers the perfect partner to the all-new WR450F. And delivers fun when the going gets tight and technical.
Complemented by MY24 Team Yamaha Blue colours and graphics, the WR250F reflects Yamaha’s race-winning pedigree. The new model is fitted with a full power ECU and comes with ADR compliance so can be fully road registered in all states. A free Off-Road Competition Kit is also offered for owners who wish to set up their WR250F to ride on closed courses.
