Continuing the trend set by the WR400 and the YZ426, the WR250 brings ridiculously low weight (102 kilos!!!) and a whole new kind of handling and throttle response to its class. One factor that makes the liquid-cooled, dohc engine so revolutionary is a volume and breadth of power that is completely unprecedented in it's class - all the way to its 13,500 rpm redline! It's the same throttle position sensing system, titanium valves and ultra-short stroke, low reciprocating mass layout you'll find on larger Yamahas.
