MSRP $7,290

The Yamaha YZ250F has several new features for 2012 including a beefy new outer fork tubes and triple clamps. Which means? An increase in the front fork assembly’s torsional rigidity for unmatched chassis stability. Also the front and rear suspension settings have been optimized for the new frame design, including a shock that uses a 16 mm shaft for
optimal hydraulic flow, resulting in exceptionally smooth suspension and great traction capability.
