Yamaha YZ 250 F 2016


The Yamaha YZ 250 F, completely redesigned in its 2014 vintage, was acclaimed by the specialized press both in Europe and in the United States. Thanks to the success of Cooper Webb (AMA Supercross West Coast 250 Champion in 2015) and Jeremy Martin (AMA Motocross 250 Champion in 2014), the YZ 250 F positions Yamaha among the best in the 250 cc 4-stroke category..

Equipped with a rear-slanted engine and forward-facing intake, the YZ 250 F combines a wide, easily exploitable power range with exceptional agility.

2016 YZ 250 F: superior in cornering

Renowned for its excellent cornering performance, the YZ 250 F evolves on several points with a view to increased overall competitiveness.
The development team focused, in particular, on improving four major functionalities: power at medium and high rpm; engine flexibility; suspension performance; braking force and handling.

New lighter piston and connecting rod

In order to reduce the weight of the moving assembly (linkage-piston) and thus obtain an even better response and acceleration, the YZ 250 F 2016 is fitted with a new flat-head piston. Favored by a thinner piston skirt and a shorter piston pin, this forged design reduces weight by over 18g. New flat cap increases combustion efficiency for higher traction and high-end performance.

For increased reliability, the lightweight piston features additional ribs in its lower portion as well as a modified piston cooling nozzle. This results in operating temperatures of around 10 ° C lower than before, guaranteeing an engine with more constant efficiency..

Optimized crankshaft and balance design

To achieve more linear torque, the 2016 model uses an additional crankshaft counterweight as well as a redesigned balance. This new design improves engine balance, while providing high torque over a wider rev range: the rider better anticipates the terrain profile and adapts his riding position more quickly..

These changes also lead to a reduction in vibration. An injection unit, with modified parameters, smoothes the engine behavior when the rev limiter is activated.

Clutch and transmission improvements

As for the YZ 450 F, the YZ 250 F 2016 adopts a new clutch nut, as well as a new selector finger equipped with a 20% stiffer spring and a revised roller for a change of smoother and more precise speed under pressure.

New front and rear suspension settings

New suspension settings have been chosen, directly inspired by information gathered from Yamaha factory riders, in order to improve handling and handling on heavy shocks..

Larger diameter front brake disc (270 mm)

the 2016 YZ 250 F uses a larger diameter front disc (270 mm) as well as new brake pads. The set not only allows you to brake later, but also to benefit from a more accurate feeling.
