After has spent a lot of time on muddy tracks and harsh terrains, the old Yamaha YZ250 was blessed with a complete upgrade in 2010. The bike entered in 2011 without any changes, but the year 2012 has brought a new series of upgrades which help it remain at par with its rivals.
The YZ250F is one of the best looking small bore bikes in its class and we’re glad to see that Yamaha decided to keep the overall designed unchanged. Most of the upgrades were to the engine, frame and chassis, so all the action took place under the skin. Thanks to the new tweaks, the engine’s power was increased in the upper rev range. On the other hand, the upper frame rails have been changed from a two-box section to a three-box section to control flex, while the cast swingarm section and the engine brackets were also modified.
