The Yamaha 2009 WR250X


The Yamaha homepage features information on the new WR250X for 2009

According Yamaha, the WR250X is not exactly an enduro, a supermoto or a sportbike, the WR250X is for riders who ride mostly paved surfaces. Its sibling, the off-road inspired WR250R, is for riders who spend more time in the dirt.

Directly descended from YZ motocrossers and WR off-road machines—even the original Yamaha YA-1 of 1955— Yamaha says the WR250X is here to make Yamaha’s off-road prowess street accessible.


The WR250X achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 71 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 2 gallons of gas.


The is WR250X is powered by a 250cc liquid-cooled, DOHC engine with two titanium intake valves and two steel exhausts, forged piston and plated cylinder for outstanding durability.


The WR250X also features the first use of fuel injection on a 250 Yamaha on/off-road bike. The system relies on input from a crank sensor, intake air pressure sensor and throttle position sensor feeding a compact ECU to provide optimum combustion.
