The Yamaha YZ250 is a legend in the world of two-stroke bikes and for all of its years in the sun, the model still doesn’t fail to impress.
In a nutshell, it’s still considered as one of the best bikes in its class and for good reason. It comes as a more palatable 2-stroke with plenty of features derived from its more powerful 4-stroke counterparts. It’s got one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any bike in its class, thanks in large part to a light aluminum frame housing a patented YPVS Power valve-equipped engine. Plus, its a lot cheaper to maintain than most bikes in Yamaha’s fold.
On top of that end, it features the same Yamaha -inspired design that has long been a trademark of the YZ family. Carrying a distinct style to go with top-of-the-heap performance isn’t an easy thing to do in the motorcycle industry.
Very few models have achieved such acclaim and to Yamaha’s credit, one of those models regarded as such is the YZ250, one of the truest two-stroke bike the market has to offer.
