2009 Yamaha WR 250X
Awesome little bike!By (I am an Owner) on Jun 06, 2009
After a couple months of research, the WR250X was an obvious choice. Some of the first words out of peoples mouth is "why would you pay $6,190 for a 250? you can get a 400 for little more!" But, this little 250 is potent. 28 measured horsepower means its only a few hundred bucks from beating a DRZ. ... Fuel injection and water cooling ensures reliabality, as proven by valve adjustments required every 26,000 mile. Because of the fuel injection, 80 mpg is not out of the question (assuming your gentle on the throttle).Ergonomics are great, but your butt will start go numb after about an hour of riding. The chassis is absolutely excelent! It is very similiar to the proven YZ motocross and fully adjustable suspension begs track duty to really be appreciated. If you are on the fence about this bike, take advantage of the bad economy and talk the dealer down $1000 and you won't be dissapointed.
