Vehicle Details

Cross country and enduro racing have been experiencing increased popularity and growth. Based on the legendary YZ250 two-stroke, the X model has been developed using all of Yamaha’s extensive two-stroke knowledge to produce a high-level cross country performer. The YZ250X is a lightweight, compact machine that is both exciting to ride and affordable to own and maintain.

The YZ250X is a super light weight package that offers serious two-stroke power. The engineers modified the cylinder head, adjusted the compression ratio, revised the exhaust port timing and changed the gear ratios in the 5-speed transmission to better suit cross country racing (vs. the base YZ250). The YZ250X engine offers a good depth of power with an easy-to-use engine character.

Cross-country-focused chassis features include softer suspension settings front and rear, an 18-inch rear wheel for more puncture resistance, an aluminum side stand and a fuel petcock that offers a reserve position for peace of mind (vs. YZ250).


The YZ250X is based on the YZ250 2-stroke with the following additional features that enhance its competitiveness for cross country racing / riding.

  • “Re-tuned” engine Vs. YZ250 (head, ignition, porting & YPVS)
  • Wider ratio transmission gears Vs. YZ250 (3rd gear & higher)
  • Heavy duty clutch
  • Expansion chamber shape
  • Unique front & rear suspension settings
  • 18″ rear wheel
  • Aluminum side stand
  • On-off-reserve fuel petcock


  • Slim design, aggressive bodywork allows easy rider movements
  • Lightweight YZ250F/450F based wide footpegs provide excellent grip & ground clearance
