- YZ-F Developed Dual-Sport
Directly descended from our YZ® motocrossers and WR® off-road machines, the WR250R™ is here to make Yamaha’s off-road prowess street accessible, with high-specification components and top-notch build quality rarely seen in the dual-sport segment.
- Dirt-Focused Performance
Not exactly an enduro model and not a pure streetbike either, the WR250R is for riders who ride off-road more than on, and are looking for extreme dirt capability right out of the box.
- Advanced Fuel-Injected Engine
Featuring EFI and advanced lightweight engine internals, the WR250R isn’t just another detuned dual-sport, as Yamaha’s race-winning performance and track-tested development comes into focus with every twist of the throttle.
- Full-Adjustable Suspension
With three-way adjustable suspension front and rear, the WR250R’s high-spec fork and shock allow the rider to tune the ride to match trail conditions and make the most of the light, nimble chassis.
- High-Tech Four-Stroke Powerplant
250cc liquid-cooled, DOHC engine with two titanium intake valves and two steel exhausts, forged piston and direct-plated cylinder for outstanding durability.
- Advanced, High-Revving Cylinder Design
Pentroof combustion chamber with downdraft-type straight intake helps make excellent power across the rev band, with maximum power at 10,000 rpm.
- Fuel Injection
First use of fuel injection on a 250 Yamaha on/off-road bike. The system relies on input from a crank sensor, intake air pressure sensor and throttle position sensor feeding a compact ECU to provide optimum combustion.
- EXUP® Exhaust
An ECU-controlled EXUP® exhaust valve, along with an electronic intake control valve, broadens the powerband for more responsive power.
- Durable Engine Internals
High-lift cams have WPC surface treatment in which the surface is sprayed with fine powder at over 100 meters per second to increase surface hardness, improving durability and reducing friction losses.
- Compact Engine
Three-axis engine layout keeps the engine compact. The wet oil sump tucks between frame rails to keep the engine height down and minimize overall chassis size.
- High-Performance Generator
Rare earth-type ACM alternator keeps the weight down while providing the current needed to run the FI and lighting systems.
- Coil-On-Plug Ignition
Direct ignition coil sits atop the spark plug, for a high-energy spark and reduced weight compared to conventional coils and high voltage spark plug wires—another first on a Yamaha on-off road model.
- 6-Speed Transmission
Six-speed gearbox provides a wide spread of ratios, with shower-type lubrication for reliability. A special light-action clutch makes shifting a snap.
- Compact Muffler
Tucked-in three-chamber muffler helps keep mass centralized and the bike quiet.
