2020 Yamaha YZ250X is here | News
Yamaha Motor Australia is excited to announce the release of the 2020 YZ250X. Recommended ready to ride price is $12,299 incl GST.
Australian-delivered YZ250X models are fitted with an off-road kit that makes the bike eligible for rec rego in some states. The kit includes front and rear lights, handguards, horn, mirror, braided steel front brake line and number plate hanger.
The chassis features a lightweight aluminium double-cradle frame and swingarm, fully-adjustable KYB closed chamber USD forks and a fully-adjustable high-performance KYB rear shock absorber. The whole package has been specifically tuned for cross-country racing to deliver unmatched performance, along with light, nimble, and precise handling.
This two-stroke enduro racer is powered by the same 249cc, reed-valve inducted engine as Yamaha’s legendary YZ250X motocross machine. Features include a compact exhaust system for clearance on tight technical trails, and a race-ready wide-ratio five-speed transmission. Compression ratio, exhaust port, power valve timing, and model-specific CDI unit are all designed for improved trail performance, with a focus on delivering a wide, controllable power character.
Braking duties are handled by a large 270mm/245mm front/rear hydraulic disc brake combination with high-performance pad material for exceptional stopping power and controllability in tight wooded trails. Enduro-specific Dunlop Geomax AT81 tyres with an 18-inch rear have a taller sidewall for improved comfort and reduced pinch flats are fitted as standard equipment.
The 2020 YZ250X is available now at Yamaha dealers.
