Dealer Insights

The Sweet Smell of Two-Stroke in the Morning

Yamaha’s changes to the YZ250X engine are perfect. In fact, after months of riding motocross and a lot of off-road aboard the X, we prefer this engine set up to the standard YZ250 motocross version. The delivery is much smoother and makes awesome traction, all while offering up a little more power in the upper rpms. The YZ250X engine also revs an extra 500 rpm more than the YZ250, letting the rider carry each gear a little further before shifting.
