2016 Yamaha WR250R

Rooted in the YZ250F motocrosser and off-roading WR250F, the street-legal Yamaha WR250R is highly sophisticated dirt worthy machine.

With fuel injection feeding a liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve single with titanium intake valves, the WR250R puts out nice, usable power. Power peaks at a staggering 10,000 rpm, so it helps to keep the bike on song.

Variable exhaust and intake valves make the most of the highly oversquare e-start engine. Not all motor, the WR250F has fully adjustable suspension, with an USD fork and linkage rear shock, and an aluminum frame. We have taken the WR250R on freeways and black-diamond single-track trails, and have great fun on both.
