condition: excellent

Very great condition, rarely ever rode, let alone never actually been raced. Looking for 3800 obo.


Yamaha’s engine of choice is from a trick/stunt motorcycle sold in Europe, the Yamaha Trixter. This engine is known for its low-end torque, light weight, quick revving, air-cooled design with the ability to start with a push of a button. This engine also features a wet sump system and a ceramic composite plated cylinder to help disperse heat and prolong engine life.

The five speed manual transmission, unlike many of its in-class competitors, gives the rider the ability to feather the clutch and excel out of the corners. Yamaha chose to exclude the reverse gear to save weight, just like the Blaster. The Raptor 250 weighs in at just 313 pounds dry, making it the lightest quad in the 250cc sport class, nearly 50 pounds lighter than the reported curb weight of its predominant competitor, the Honda TRX250EX.
