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.

Yamaha had the great idea of choosing the best motorcycle builders and ask them to play with their new V Max. One of these famous builders was Frenchman Ludovic, which spent a lot of time and creativity to develop its unique version of the Yamaha V Max.

Frenchman Ludovic has a factory in Annecy-le-Vieux, near the Swiss border, where he turns out two, three and four-wheel creations – including unique car/bike hybrids such as R1-engined bespoke quads and a supercharged 84bhp Yamaha TMax.

Ludovic combines his background as a design graduate and passion for muscle machines. It’s a mix of brain and brawn that results in mad modifications that could come straight out of movie – Mad VMAX. He’s famous for his silhouette style and for his first iconic VMAX customization: taking a wrecked 1991 model, fitting special parts and an LCD screen with a rear-view video link to create a unique hyper-modified VMAX.

The SRX 120 was born from the collaboration between Yamaha and Arctic Cat. The two companies decided to leave rivalries behind and developed an all new kid sled which combines the proven Arctic Cat frame and technologies with Yamaha’s capable 4 stroke 123 cc single cylinder engine.

Naturally, Arctic Cat is commercializing its own version of the kid sled, under the name Kitty Cat and except for some minor design differences the Kitty Cat is completely identical with the SRX 120 featuring the same technologies, body and engine.

Both sleds were designed especially for kids and their 123 single cylinder engine cranks out enough power to offer a respectable top speed of 8 miles per hour. The sled is offered with a few key safety features like tether ignition shut-off switch and top speed control. The ride quality is assured by the double A-arm front suspension and slide rail rear suspension.
