2006 Yamaha YZ250F Competition Model
2006 Yamaha YZ250F 50th Anniversary Model

  • For 2006, a carefully tuned aluminum frame made up of forgings, weldings, castings and tubing means sharp, super-precise handling.
  • Increased mass centralization provides fantastic overall balance and performance.
  • Suspension refinements front and rear help make the 2006 YZ250F the sweetest-handling and smoothest-riding one ever.
  • Sharp new styling keeps the YZ250F at the front of the pack in the looks department, too including a special, 50th anniversary model.
  • Trick new bits include a light, strong ProTaper aluminum handlebar in adjustable clamps, Excel rims and a cool new exhaust system.
  • Five titanium valves let the YZ250F breathe deep, spinning out amazing torque and horsepower all the way to 13,500 RPM.
  • Suggested Retail: $5,999 USD. Anniversary: $6,199 USD.
New for 2006:
  • Speed-Sensitive System 48mm Kayaba fork move the TCV (transfer control valves) above the fork springs, so that damping force is now controlled by piston speed; that prevents mid-stroke damping force changes, for a smoother, more precise ride.
  • Titanium-sprung, four-way adjustable rear shock rod diameter is 2mm bigger. New, Kashima coating reduces friction for fantastic compliance and great handling.
  • An all-new aluminum frame provides fantastic handling.
  • Carburetion and exhaust changes let the 249cc four-stroke breathe free all the way to 13,500 RPM, and a new radiator keeps it cool.
  • Moving the dry sump oil tank ahead of the engine provides overall balance and handling and minimizes external oil lines.
  • New CDI magneto provides a hot, consistent spark across the powerband for right-now throttle response.
