The Yamaha Raptor 250 was designed to fill the gap between the Raptor 350 and 125 models. The ATV is powered by a light and powerful 249cc, air-cooled, SOHC, four-stroke single cylinder engine mated on a five-speed gearbox.
To keep you safe from bumps and potholes, the Yamaha Raptor 250 features a rigid and light swingarm rear end organized by a shock with adaptable preload and 7.9 inches of wheel travel. Furthermore, the front axle is kept in check by an independent double-wishbone suspension with five-way preload-adjustable shocks. The Yamaha Raptor 250’s braking system is handled by triple hydraulic disc brakes which deliver a proper stopping power even in wet conditions.
Like its other two siblings, the 2013 Yamaha Raptor 250 is fitted with dual 30-watt multireflector Krypton headlights, a 2.4-gallon fuel tank, 45mm footpegs and standard electric starting.
