I keep searching for any news or rumors etc about the 2014 WR250 but can't find anything.
The same happened with the 2010 WR-250F in the USA:
There was none.
Then, there was a 2011 model.
Then, a 2012, and a 2013.
It could just be a case of leftover units being sold off to get rid of them, or it could be a case of getting rid of leftover units before a new design comes out.
We'd all like to see the latter, but outside the inner sanctum of the Yamaha factory, nobody knows.
The WR-250F has been the same machine since 2007, save for colors and graphics.
In the dirt bike world that's a long time, and the Yamaha factory knows this better than anyone.
One thing I do believe is that they won't come out with a new model unless they're convinced they can sell enough of them to justify the investment on the development.
I hope they do, but we'll have to stay tuned.
By the way, the pics in that photo gallery of the 2014 WR-250F shown on that European Yamaha website are, I do believe, simply 2012 or 2013 pics they used back then with 2014 graphics somehow Photochopped in place - those action shots look awfully familiar.
