Innovative Hare Scramble/GNCC Engine Design Based on the championship winning YZ250F, featuring Yamaha's
Revolutionary rearward slanted, liquid cooled, DOHC 4-stroke power plant with forward positioned straight downdraft symmetrical intake, and with an added sixth gear and wide ratio transmission, the
YZ250FX is an out-of-the-box Hare Scrambles/GNCC competition machine.
The engine is based on the 2017 YZ250F, and includes all the same race-winning features: an updated cylinder head, lightweight forged, two ring, flat-top piston; a shorter, more durable piston pin with diamond like carbon (DLC) coating; a revised piston oil jet, and advanced connecting rod, crankshaft, and counterbalancer designs.
Together, the result is improved peak power, power delivery and overall
A wide ratio 6 speed transmission is used to insure the right gear is available for the wide variety of terrain found in cross-country racing.
Nearly the same bilateral beam frame that is found on the championship winning YZ250F is used on the YZ250FX. The forged section at the swing arm pivot and engine mounting brackets help develop nimble lightweight feeling in the tight technical terrain while still providing stability in fast sections.
Industry leading, fully adjustable KYB spring type fork with speed sensitive damping features revised valving for improved suspension feel and balance. The linkage type rear suspension features a KYB rear shock with settings optimized for cross country racing.
Cross Country Features
With the electric starting system, a 7.6litre fuel tank, rugged plastic skid plate, 18inch rear wheel and XC racing tires, the YZ250FX is ready to win right out of the box.
