Yamaha refined the suspension and powerband of its 250 which was already a favorite. It’s still the smoothest and easiest bike to ride in the 250 class. As a result, the bike is an even more clear-cut winner in its class. It won the 2001 250 shootout.
TEST BIKE WEIGHT: 227 lb.
PEAK HORSEPOWER: 43.7 hp @ 7300 rpm
