Punchy 249cc, 4-stroke engine
The light and powerful air-cooled 249cc, 4-stroke engine produces a broad, deep powerband and starts with a push of a button. Its special low-friction ceramic-coated cylinder ensures reduced wear and excellent heat dissipation.
The five-speed manual transmission provides the flexibility to tackle almost any track or trail, while the 29mm carburettor provides light throttle pull and excellent throttle response across the entire rpm range.
The light, strong and short-wheelbase chassis ensures excellent comfort levels and super responsive, high-performance handling.
The independent double-wishbone front suspension, with five-way preload-adjustable shocks, is lifted directly from the YFZ450.
Balanced rims and calipers
Lightweight aluminium rims and front brake calipers reduce unsprung weight for excellent suspension performance, acceleration, deceleration and handling.
Distinctive R-line bodywork and replica YFZ450 headlights combine with a fresh graphical look to present an impressive presence on the track or trail.
