MXA FIRST RIDE VIDEO ON THE 2020 YAMAHA YZ250 TWO-STROKE
The 2020 Yamaha YZ250 two-stroke is unchanged yet again for another new model season. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It truly shows how good this bike was in 2006 when it received it’s biggest update—the Kayaba SSS suspension. As the Austrian manufacturers, as well as TM, continue to develop their two-stroke lines, Yamaha will face stiffer competition in the 250 class as time goes. We applaud Yamaha for being the only Japanese manufacturer continuing their two-stroke lineup and only hope that they might set some R&D budget aside to update it a little more next year. Check out what Josh Mosiman had to say about the 2020 model after the first day of test riding at Glen Helen Raceway.
