2008 Yamaha YZ250F
Other than a slightly anemic motor, the Yamaha is extremely pleasing. It definitely has the most room inside the rider triangle and the massive footpegs make sure the rider can adjust themselves inside the cockpit.
Yamaha stayed low-key with its new YZ250F, but we think the small changes add up to a better machine in 2008.
