2016 Yamaha Spring Motorcycle Launch

60th Anniversary Colours and an All-New Model
 

After the massive 2015 motorcycle launch, Yamaha Motor Canada is continues the trend of releasing all-new exciting motorcycles for 2016!

Last year, Yamaha ventured into the growing world of cross country and enduro racing with the introduction of the YZ250FX. Yamaha is pleased to announce the second model in our cross country lineup… the all-new YZ250X. Based on the legendary YZ250 2-stroke, the new "X" version has been developed using all of Yamaha's extensive 2-stroke knowledge to produce a model that offers a high level of performance for cross country racing for only $7,899 MSRP. New cross country focused chassis features include revised suspension settings, an 18" rear wheel, a new aluminum side stand and a new fuel petcock that offers a reserve position for peace of mind.



 

Also for 2016, both the YZ450F and YZ250F have been updated. The YZ450F engine has been revised and has also seen the addition of launch control for faster starts and a larger front disc. For the YZ250F, a number of detail improvements to the piston, piston pin, crank, clutch and transmission have been made. On the chassis side a larger 270mm front disc brake has been added as well as revised suspension settings. The most noticeable change for both these motorcycles for 2016 is the limited edition yellow and black colour scheme celebrating Yamaha’s 60th Anniversary.

Other models released for 2016 with a fresh look include the FZ-09, FZ- 07, Bolt, Bolt R-Spec, WR250R, TW200, XT250, TT-R110E, PW50 and the rest of the YZ lineup.
