2023 Yamaha YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition: CLAW YOUR WAY TO THE FRONT.
Introducing the new 2023 Yamaha YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition…
Pure performance and full‑throttle adrenaline is what you get from this lightweight and reliable two‑stroke moto machine, with the look of a full factory Monster Energy® ride.
When you take your first look at the YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition, you just know that this is the ultimate replica bike. It features a revised, ergonomic chassis and slimline bodywork that ensures enhanced mobility and even higher levels of cornering agility. And in addition to all of that you’ll be the proud owner of a factory team-style bike, that is one of the most desirable 2-strokes in the paddock.
Power your way to the front.
The combination of a high-powered 250cc 2-stroke YPVS (Yamaha Power Valve System) engine, lightweight aluminium chassis and one of the best suspension packages in its class makes this bike like no other and one of the most exciting motocross bikes you’ll ever ride. In its time it’s won everything worth winning in motocross, supercross and freestyle MX. Now Yamaha have made it even sharper!
The all-new slimline bodywork makes for a dynamic and ultra-modern look – and the flatter seat enables easier bodyweight shifting when accelerating, cornering or braking – for a higher degree of control. While the new more powerful front braking system and revised suspension damping help to cut lap times. And in its exclusive black livery with factory team-style graphics, the YZ250 Monster Energy Yamaha Racing Edition is the most desirable 2-stroke!

There’s a factory rider inside every one of us just waiting to escape. And only a select group of motocross riders will ever make it to the very top – so just being a part of the one of the greatest extreme sports in the world is a privilege.
