Compared to the old model, the new generation Yamaha WR450F was completely redesigned. While the old model was built with speed and casual off roading in mind, the new model is more focused on crossed country and enduro rides. Thereby the new bike is a better racer than the old one and also features a tougher character.
One of the most important upgrades is the improved chassis. Technically the new chassis consists of an YZ250F frame fitted with a strong 449cc engine. Compared to the old frame, the new one has a better torsional rigidity and is made of a combination of forged and extruded aluminium pieces.

Yamaha is rolling out a pair of new all-purpose bikes that have been designed to make commuting, be it on pavement or off-road, as seamless and efficient as possible.
One of this is the supermoto-influenced WR250X, which is about as legitimate as any dual-sport bike you’ll find on the market today. The WR250X offers an unmatched level of riding performance and excitement that very few bikes in the market can provide.
The bike was built using inspiration from two legendary Yamaha models, the YZ motocrossers and the WR off-road machines. But unlike the WR250R, which was designed and built for off-road purposes, the WR250X was built with a little more cosmopolitan use to it.
Whatever adventures you may chance upon with this bike, you’ll always remember that the WR250X is a bike that can take you wherever you need to go. It not only delivers a fun and enjoyable ride, but also gives you everything you need in a two-wheeled, pavement-riding machine.

The bike has the capability to be rolled out to serve many purposes, be it as an ultra-lightweight adventure tourer that can hit the trail without any problems or as a city rider that can get you to your destination as seamlessly and efficiently as possible.
Versatility is the name of the game and the unquestioned calling car of the Yamaha WR250R. Some bikes will offer you more power and some will look a lot more sophisticated, but if you’re looking for a no-frills, do-anything ride, the WR250R will offer you all that and so much more.

Not quite your everyday enduro motorcycle and not a dirt bike either, the WR250R is Yamaha’s most versatile two-wheeled machine, one that can take you off-road and on pavement with great ease thanks to a highly evolved and easily adaptive chassis and a potent quarter-liter engine. As you probably already infer, the best thing about it is that it can actually go on public roads, so it qualifies as a commuter too.
Small, light and versatile dirt bikes are big part of Yamaha’s history, but we also can’t complain about their evolution on the streets either and the 2010 WR250X model is a pure demonstration of power in this concern. Nowadays, the engine’s size isn’t as important as the overall package’s weight, handling and build quality and this versatile Yamaha motorcycle does more than meeting these last demands, it actually makes us wonder which category is the most appropriate for it.
