– 2003 Yamaha YZ250F Review
2003 Yamaha YZ250F
The YZ250F. Bring on the competition…
Back-to-back 125 Supercross Championships. Three “125 of the Year” crowns in just two seasons. And now a machine that’s even better. Presenting the 2003 YZ250F four-stroke. Poked and prodded from nose to tail, this quarter-liter wonder-bike has been fine-tuned to the tiniest detail, starting with all-new bodywork and styling that creates an even more aggressive riding position while allowing maximum rider movement.
Screaming-fast revs, lightning-quick throttle response and potent low-rev torque are three of the high-performance perks served up by the YZ250F’s exclusive 5-valve cylinder head technology. An all-new frame boasts lighter-weight and greater lateral rigidity for sharper handling with minimal flex. Thoroughly retooled suspension coupled with a lighter swingarm delivers more compliant, stiction-free damping action for smoother handling. And all-new front and rear disc brake componentry ensures even stronger, more progressive stopping power.
