With its agile character and the powerful engine, the 2013 Yamaha WR250F is ready to tackle even the harshest terrains with poise.
The bikes’ 250cc liquid-cooled, DOHC four-stroke engine features five titanium valves and is complemented with the special WR camshafts, carburetion, exhaust and ignition systems. All these facts are translated into first class power delivery and performance.
But power without control is useless, thereby the motorcycle is packed with a set of sporty suspensions which are perfectly suited for off road use. The motorcycle’s backbone is the YZ-inspired aluminum frame which retains Yamaha’s legendary handling and response. In addition, the KYB shock brings 12.2 inches of travel while the wave-style disc brake rotors front and rear reduce unsprung weight and bring excellent performance.
As far as style goes, the WR250F is offered with a YZ-derived bodywork and a thick seat with a tapered aluminum handlebar.
