The Yamaha WR250R is a direct descendent of the WR250F – a rugged motorbike designed only for off road. Unlike its sibling the WR250R has a more serene character and can be used without problems for both street and dirt riding.

The first street legal Yamaha WR250R was launched in 2008 and since then it continued to impress the dual purpose bike lovers with its superior performances.

After four years, the WR250R’s design remained almost unchanged and all you get for 2013 is a new set of graphics.

The bike features a competent alloy chassis which is combined with a reliable 250 cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine. The engine is combined with two titanium intake valves and two steel exhausts.

To help the bike deal with harsh terrains with poise, Yamaha gave it a special asymmetrical swingarm which comes with cast aluminum crossmembers, extruded arms and a 22mm rear axle. Furthermore a fully adjustable 46mm fork provides 10.6 inches of wheel travel.

The dual sport character of the Yamaha XT250 has conquered a lot of fans. To keep its fans loyal, Yamaha came up with a series of small upgrades for the 2013 model year. The biggest change is represented by the new fuel injection system which replaces the earlier model’s 33mm Teikei carburetor. Yamaha claims that thanks to the new fuel injection system the bike offers an improved fuel economy of 76 mpg - a 3 mph improvement when compared to the old 73 mpg rating.

The bike is propelled by a 249cc air-cooled SOHC engine married to a five speed transmission. The engine remained unchanged, but it received a larger gas tank to improve the bike’s range (2.6 gallons versus 2.4 gallons on last year’s model). Another important modification was the replacement of the old CDI (Capacitive Discharge Ignition) ignition system with a new TCI (Transistor Controlled Ignition) technology.

The suspensions remained unchanged and the bike continues to sit on a 35mm telescopic fork with 8.9-inches of travel and a swingarm with rebound-adjustable monoshock with 7.1-inches of travel.

As far as breaking power goes, the 2013 Yamaha XT250 is equipped with 245mm front and 203mm rear disc brakes.
