24 Nov 2014 2015 Yamaha WR250F!
Unless you just haven’t heard yet.. the word on the street is the ’15 Yamaha WR250F is, well, amazing! Fuel Injected, 6-gear wide transmission, set on YZ frame with unique rearward engine.
I’ve been following @6hd_ as he has been filming for Yamaha Australia on the new WR250F launch. They had professional riders, AJ Roberts, Chris Hollis, and one of my fav Yamaha off-road & desert racers Josh Green, put this thing to the test! Check out his awesome Introduction video.
I decided to ask Josh Green what he thought of the WR250F..and here’s how it went:
soooo what’s the census on the new WR250F?? May need to upgrade my 09!
Definitely need to get your hands on one there epic!!
Thx Josh, that’s so awesome to hear!! I have a sweet 09 WR250F & a decked out 08 WR250R, the R is fuel injected & my adventure bike & there’s no other bike like the WRR but the new WRF could possibly replace both these bikes!!
This bike handled everything that we could throw at it and not once could i question its ability! I was stoked and can’t wait to get my hands on one at home!
the FI & 6 gear really opens it up to the adventure market too, put a plate on it, gear it right the only issue would be fuel capacity & can you run a GPS off it. I know anything off-road it should handle especially if YOU are saying so!! Now you got me super stoked and I do love both my Yammies! They just feel so right! Does it feel lighter than the claimed 258lbs wet?? Thx for sharing!
Well it doesn’t feel heavy at all! I’m so impressed with the new WR250F! Most fun I’ve ever had trail riding!! Very impressed!

Been testing the all new Yamaha WR250f 2015 I’ve had this bike apart all I can say is I am very impressed with this machine if your looking at racing or trail riding on the weekends and be able to commute to and from work this is it .
Now I like where that is going… even commute to work! I can’t wait to see how this bike evolves.. can it replace a WR250R? Maybe? It depends on how you ride it.. is it a bike I’d take on a 2,000+ mile adventure.. don’t think so with the maintenance intervals, but would it be a great weekend adventure bike, I think so! The fuel injection really puts this bike on the radar.. riding out west in altitude sure would be better than with my ’09 WR250F. I got my eyes on your ’15 WR250F!
