2017 Yamaha WR250R on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
Inspired by our legendary WR off road series, the WR250R is a machine that
offers excellent performance on road and off. Discover for yourself just how
250cc of fuel injected power can push the limits of performance. The WR250R
is ready to tame the twistest road or the toughest trail ... with power, handling
Advanced Dual Sport
Offers high-end components and performance for one of the most advanced dual
sport bikes. Ideal for those who ride off-road more than on.
Engineered for the extreme
Saturday and Sunday are your days. The days you live for. The WR250R is the ultimate weekender. Much more than just another trail bike, it's a blend of Yamaha's world-dominating off-road know-how and the no-compromise attitude of our R-Series supersport bikes.
It's engineered to deliver the purest feel and feedback, so you've got the confidence to take your technique to the next level and ride like you've never ridden before.
Equipped with lightweight titanium inlet valves, the liquid-cooled, 4-stroke,
DOHC, 4-valve, single-cylinder engine pushes hard all the way to 10,000 rpm,
making this one of the strongest 250 singles ever built by Yamaha.
Dual purpose with a competitive edge
This is a no-compromise, dual purpose Supermotard based directly on our WR-F and YZ-F racers, which have won titles in every major dirt-bike championship going. Optimised for both on and off-road performance, it features a full-on, advanced competition spec: 10,000 rpm engine, aluminium main frame and race suspension.
The 4-stroke, 4-valve, DOHC, 10,000 rpm single-cylinder engine is the real deal: large diameter titanium intake valves and high lift cams for high rpm levels. It's also liquid cooled for peak performance, and features ceramic-plated cylinder and forged piston, and is one of the strongest 250 singles ever built by Yamaha.
The light and tough aluminium main frame and swingarm afford incredibly agile handling, whether you're riding the roughest terrain or the city streets. On top of this, the bike is equipped with a 21 inch front wheel and 18 inch rear wheel, plus wave-type disc brakes.
This motorcycle is engineered to deliver the purest feel and feedback. The competition-quality suspension features fully adjustable 46 mm upside-down forks, link-type monocross rear suspension and aluminium triple clamps.
Smooth and seamless
The electronic fuel injection system is designed to ensure strong, seamless power right across the rpm range, and delivers instant throttle response. The smooth operating clutch combines with a 6-speed gearbox for slick shifting and a gear to suit just about every road and off road situation.
Stunning look and feel
With looks to match its stunning performance, this machine combines visual
beauty with radical off-road design. No matter how extreme the terrain, you'll
be riding in comfort thanks to a generous 300 mm ground clearance, plus handlebar,
seating and footrest positioned for comfortable riding on or off-road.
2017 Yamaha WR250R www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Directly descended from our YZ motocrossers and WR off-road machines, the WR250R is here to make Yamahas off-road prowess street accessible.
2. Off-Road Focused Performance
Not exactly an enduro model and not a streetbike either, the WR250R is for riders who ride off-road more than on.
Potent, liquid-cooled, 250cc, DOHC, 4-valve, 4-stroke powerplant with super light titanium intake valves and electronic fuel injection.
Don't let 250 cubic centimeters fool you, this machine performs well above
its displacement. Adjustable suspension, a wide ratio 6-speed transmission
and disc brakes front and rear provide serious dual sport performance.
2017 Yamaha WR250R www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Blacked out, 942cc, air-cooled, SOHC, 4-valves per cylinder, fuel injected, 60° V-twin power plant pumps out impressive power & torque. Maximum torque is reached at 3,000 rpms.
SOHC, pent-roof, 4-valve cylinder heads.
4-valve design optimizes breathing efficiency & overall engine performance at all rpms
31.5 mm intake & 28 mm exhaust valves use friction reducing single valve springs
compact pent roof combustion chamber design & optimized squish area forces the fuel / air mixture toward the centre of the combustion chamber for more complete combustion & excellent power with reduced emissions
25,000 km valve adjustment intervals
Specially designed roller rockers activate the valves.
Y shaped roller rocker arms allows a greater amount of valve lift without causing excessive camshaft wear & friction
slipper portion of the rocker arm utilizes a needle bearing for reduced camshaft wear & reduced sliding resistance (friction)
No fuss, traditional air-cooled engine design.
cylinders have a tapered "V" appearance to highlight the V-twin engine design
cooling fins have been optimized for excellent cooling even in stop & go traffic
Automatic cam chain tensioners reduce mechanical noise & simplify maintenance.
"Liner-less", ceramic composite-plated cylinder bores.
ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum blocks, eliminating the liners & reducing weight
excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery
ceramic coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder & piston, reducing friction & increasing power
Flat top, lightweight forged aluminum pistons.
less reciprocating mass for fast engine response
reduced mechanical vibration for excellent reliability
Single pin style crankshaft.
design accentuates V-twin engine character, pulse feel & sound
Crankcases feature a "Tri-Axis" layout for the crank, main & drive axles.
creates a more compact & shorter engine front to back
shorter engine allows for optimum engine placement in the "sweet spot" of frame for desired weight distribution & great handling
Wet sump lubrication system with easy access, spin on oil filter & drain plug for easy oil changes.
Classic side mounted 2.3 litre air box houses an easy access, a high-flow viscous paper-type filter.
"Closed loop", dual bore, 35 mm throttle body fuel injection system with linear throttle response for easy riding.
system uses throttle position sensor (TPS) to help optimize intake air flow & power
ISC or idle speed controller ensures a steady idle
4 - hole injectors optimize fuel atomization & feature a dual spray pattern for more complete combustion chamber filling
"closed loop system" uses an oxygen sensor to "sniff" spent exhaust & automatically adjust the fuel / air ratio for reduced emissions
oxygen sensor is located before the mufflers, so the use of aftermarket "slip-on" mufflers will not affect the closed loop system
fuel injection benefits include; excellent throttle response, choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
Smooth-shifting, 5-speed transmission.
