Yamaha Motor Canada Ltd. Motorcycle Product Manager, John Bayliss, said, ?I can?t remember a bigger motorcycle launch in Yamaha?s history. These are five all-new bikes, a new motorcycle for every type of rider. And come November, we will be launching more all-new bikes!?
For the off-road enthusiasts, there are the all-new YZ250FX and WR250F, both available in Yamaha Blue.
The YZ250FX is the perfect cross-country or hare scramble machine. With the performance potential of the YZ250F, but with electric start and an 18-inch rear wheel, the YZ250FX is the bike for those serious about winning or for the weekend warrior who wants maximum performance in a convenient package for woods or track.
For the WR250F, Yamaha has taken all the revolutionary YZ four-stroke technology such as; rearward slanted engine, reversed cylinder and a compact chassis and delivered it in an enduro package for light, agile handling on tight trails. The all-new YZ250FX will be priced at $8,749 while the WR250F will be $8,799.
Finally, for the crowd looking for fun, affordable urban transportation there is the fully automatic SMAX.
Powered by a 155 cc single cylinder, four-valve, fuel-injected engine, the SMAX offers wind and weather protection and it?s virtually vibration free.
Priced at $3,999 in either Matte Titan or Dark Purplish Metallic Blue, the SMAX was designed as the perfect commuter scooter.?
