In all honesty, we wished that Yamaha would have slapped fuel injection onto their new 250F to get rid of that carburetor burble that stands out so much more when every other 250 four-stroke has F.I. No matter what the fuel delivery system is, the engineers and testers of the blue bikes have—in our eyes—one of the best chassis in the Lites class. The improvements from 2011 to 2012 stepped up this bikes game immensely with a redesigned frame, swingarm, different suspension settings, triple clamps with a different offset and quite a bit more. In my opinion, no other 250F handles rough or dry tracks better than the ’12 and ’13 YZ250F. In rough braking bumps, acceleration chop and high-speed rollers, the YZ always feels planted. It reacts far less to rough surfaces meaning that you don’t feel the jarring bumps as much as you would on other bikes. Add fuel injection to this chassis and it’ll be a serious threat to the other 250F’s.
