2007 Yamaha YZ250F
The huge effort to lightening the front end included a smaller, forged lower triple clamp, shrunken pinch bolts, a 250mm petal-style brake rotor and forged aluminum brake caliper. The binder has smaller dual-pistons and pads which are still strong enough to earn the YZ-F top accolades in the braking department.
Yamaha hopes to turn some heads with a new turning prowess. Handling was just one of the areas targeted for improvement on the 2007 YZ250F.
