Hello guys,
Since Yamaha released a whole new 450 this year, is it possible that a new blue 250f is coming next year?
I remember back in 2010 when Yamaha released their new 450 with reversed cylinder etc we had to wait until 2014 to see the same changes for the blue 250f.
So I'm a little sceptical on the fact that Yamaha will bring us a whole new 250f for 2019...
I'm planning to sell my YZ 125 for a 250f next year so any info will be appreciated !

I have no doubt it will be new. They were so sucessful with the current model, they would be dumb not to. Also, if I remember correctly, Keefer said in a podcast that the 19 yz250f will be new and similar to the 450. He's close to the yamaha guys.

Never heard about this podcast from Keefer. Could you please post the link?
I guess we will see the first pictures of the bike upon opening of the Japanese championship.

They better. I'm most likely going to end up trying to get rid of my 2016 at the end of the year to hopefully get one if they do the same upgrades.

I’d love an updated 19 YZ250F or X model, but I’ll probably just try to find a nice low hour 2016-18 model. Saving money by riding non-current chassis is my style.

the 19 250 will be the same as the 18 450

Sorry man, I don't know which one. He puts out so much stuff lately. I think they talked about what's new on the 250f-bikes for this year and he said not much on the Yamaha but it's goong to be new in 19.

Will it have the button?

Even on the FC250...it's nice to have The Button.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Hopefully Yamaha makes both the 450 & 250 E-start next year.

The button is why I ended up with a 17 KTM 250 vs trading my 15 YZ in for a 17/18 YZ. No button = no bueno.

I got an exc-f to go with my sx and riding on Sunday I kept reaching for the non existent kick starter silly

The new Cycra-like shrouds and the button would honestly be enough. This bike is rock solid. Maybe play around with the maps a bit or something but it doesnt need much yet.

Yamaha YZ250F will receive similar upgrades in 2019 as the new 450 had for '18...

Me too!

However, when I ride the TE150...I, for some reason, go straight to the kicker.

I wish e-start was optional, but from what I can gather here the demographic that's actually buying new bikes has to have it.

Doesn't seem like the Japanese have it figured out yet though. The 2018 crf450 weighs almost 20 lbs more than the 2009; that's just not acceptable from my perspective.

Thanks for the link man ! Hopefully is Keefer right (and you too Michael) !

The button is not such a big deal for me, I had the new generation 350 sxf (it was a 16 model) the battery was just a nightmare. Had to replace it a few times before I finally decided to get rid of the bike. At that time the upgrade to the biggest battery wasn't possible. Plus I don't really need the additional weight...

I recently contacted my Yamaha dealer, according to them the first infos about the new bike should be released around february/march 18. Patience ..

Edited. Misunderstood the post. Reading is fun

Alright Lunger, Let's Do It

E start should definitely be optional, just like when I bought my Honda Civic, I chose the hand crank start to save some extra cash. Wish they did the same with the bikes. ermm

11/29/2017 11:21 PM

I don't think it will be optional, only e-start will be available I guess.

Does someone have a rough idea when the Japanese championship opens ?
New bikes are most likely to be first shown then ...

For sure e-start only. You can just look at the 18 450. The 250 will be a clone. Same frame with minor tweaks, same bodywork, same suspension (with diffrent settings) and an engine with the same architecture (e-start only, backwards dual cam head, 5 speed etc.).

I have a pretty good feeling that they are all nightmares at some point. Anyone tried to start a ttr-50 recently? Adding a bunch of unnecessary complication to bikes that were already tedious to maintain doesn't seem like a good way to attract new riders to the sport.

If you buy new it's not a big deal, but the market on used bikes will probably take a hit.

I work for Vital and my job revolves around testing bikes along with knowing what's coming down the pipeline.

I just read on another mx forum that there will be kind of a pre-release test ride day of the blue 19 250f on Feb. 1st in Glen Helen. Is this true ?

If Yamaha follows suit with the last generation Yz250f engine, this one will remain about same until about 2027.

Hey guy,

I see you’ve branched out to spoofing about Yamaha now, Tamir. Even specifically trolled ML512! Congrats!

Much appreciated.

much ty. How to spot a paid forum poster/artificial forum traffic producer (see list of actions/phrases below):

Copius pattern amounts of phrases like “Anyone have”..., “Anybody know?”.... and their variations.

Thoughts?
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
