Yamaha YZ250SP

Yamaha’s race-tested YZ250 two-stroke is already known for its fast, powerful engine, plush suspension, class-leading handling and rider friendly character.

Its 249cc liquid-cooled YPVS-equipped reed-valve-inducted two-stroke engine is lightweight, compact and fun, with an incredibly wide, hard-hitting powerband; all housed within a carefully engineered, advanced aluminium frame for maximum track performance.

An now, you can YZ like it's 1993 with iconic 50th Anniversary Edition heritage styling. Inspired by Yamaha's 1990s-era YZ two-strokes, the YZ250 50th Anniversary Edition pays tribute to 50 years of off-road innovation and bold Yamaha MX style.
