Yamaha WR250F review

Featuring black and blue bodywork with exclusive Monster Energy graphics, the YZ250F and YZ450F (top of page) Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition models offer motocross riders the opportunity to own an aggressively-styled 2021 production bike with the genuine factory look of Yamaha's Grand Prix team bikes.

The Yamaha YZ250F Monster Energy Racing Edition

Aside from the graphics, the YZ250F has just undergone a major overhaul, with a host of revisions to help keep you ahead of the competition. The engine has been boosted, with a smoother delivery in the mid-range and top-end, thanks to revised exhaust cam profiles, an all-new airbox, and a new exhaust. The internal modifications don’t stop there, as the 2021 versions of the YZ250F features an all-new clutch assembly, designed to better deal with the new bike's improved power and torque.

The chassis has also been given a thorough going over, with improved feel and handling performance thanks to revised rigidity in the frame, and tweaked suspension settings. Finally, the braking system has been optimised for the 2021 model, with lighter, more powerful discs and calipers both front and rear of the bike.
