2001 YZ250F Information
From the leaders in 4-stroke off-road technology, Yamaha is pleased to introduce the all-new YZ250F. This extreme performance 4-stroke motocross bike, designed to run in the 125 class, weighs less than some 250cc 2-stroke machines. (You read this correctly.) It has a liquid-cooled dual overhead cam engine with Yamaha's exclusive 5-valve head design. Each of the engines' five valves is made of lightweight titanium for quick engine response and dramatic acceleration. The engine is capable of revving to 13,500 rpm. The chassis is all YZ. It has an aluminum subframe and fully adjustable suspension. The YZ250F has the same fully floating front disc brake that is found on the YZ426F. Once again, Yamaha's innovation and leadership in off-road technology shine with this proud addition to the YZ family. Manufacturer's Sugg. Retail Price...$5,499*

I can already see the gears turning in MOTO-Mikes head. I love my 99yz400 but this 250 has really got me excited. I ride in tight woods and do lots of east cost style enduros and harscrambles and a light nimble bike never hurt my feelings. This should be the perfect compromise between the heavy but yet incredably tractable 4-strokes and the 2-smokers. The great thing is it is $600 less than the 250 2-smokers.
Can you belive these things rev out to 13,500rpms. They are gonna scream!!!
