If you’ve been around the dirt bike scene for a while you’ll know that the YZ250 has a pretty impressive track record. Over the years this thoroughbred racer has won just about everything worth winning in motocross and supercross.

With explosive engine performance and a lightweight aluminium chassis, the YZ250 attracts a loyal following of riders who grew up with 2-strokes. And it’s also caught the attention of a whole new generation of younger riders who just want to get out there and ride.

The modern factory bike looks and lean image fits the cool bodywork – and with its YZ-F type forks and rear suspension, the YZ250 is ready to win!
