We ran the YZ250F on our rear-wheel dyno to determine peak output from Yamaha’s 250 four-stroke motocross bike. We documented 38.2 hp at 12,500 rpm and 18.5 pound-feet of torque at 8,500 rpm.
“The engine on the 2020 Yamaha YZ250F is incredible! It has a lot of initial hit and is very fast revving with a quick throttle response. The power starts to fall off higher in the rpm, so you have to make sure you shift on time.” —Tanner Basso
