yes the yzf is a mx bike. it is set up to race. as for weight i know the new 06 bike differ by nine pounds, the 450 is 220 and the 250 is 211 dry. the suspension should be very similar if not the same. not sure how this applies to the older 450 and 250 but should be in the same ball park.

YZ450 or YZ400, YZ 400 is an MX bike. I'd go with the 250 though. The 400's are heavy as shit.
