They're not in dealers yet, the distributors are saying later in September for delivery to dealers.

If you don't have a deposit you will most likely not get one until after the New Year. They are going to be scarce for a while thanks to Covid and everyone I have talked to is asking full retail or close to it.

If it's a shootout winner they will be even harder to find!

First of the media tests seem to be happening or about to happen. I think these bikes are going to be in very high demand. Some great improvements on paper over the 20.

They have launched for the Aussie's. Not a huge fan of their testing because it's WWE style. Seems like the new frame is a winner and they found some more over-rev, firmed the suspenders a bit.

Thanks for the link ! Man i’m really torn between 250 KX or YZF 2021 ! Can’t wait for the shootout, it will be the deciding factor for me as i can’t try them both.

Here is the resume of the first impressions of the journalist on the video for the new 250 yamaha:

- “ Mid to Top seems to stretch out a lot more.
- Unlike the 2020 it doesn’t sign off too early.
- Improved balance and stability


Overall after 5 sessions, massive improvements compared to the previous one (power and handling) “

So if this guy is true, this bike seems really improved.

Hard to say, but the bikes they were riding in this test appeared to have the GYTR head and other GYTR goodies. If that's the case, not sure if it is a true representation of the stock bike that will be sold. Perhaps difference EU to USA?

Powerband in every gear !

There were 2 GYTR bikes on display at the end of the line for photos it seemed. The bikes they were riding and talking about were standard production '21s. Should be awesome if it is better than my '19.

Hi, Would anyone know if 2020 and this new 2021 model have same exhaust system? I want to buy an exhaust system to put on straight away before riding 2021 bike

Looking at part numbers, the header pipes are the same, and the muffler goes to a -20-00 from a -10-00, so likely minimal changes to the muffler from the 2020 model. So in my experience I would be confident in saying that a 2020 exhaust will fit the new bike.

That is a lot of cabbage to lay out to gamble on if the muffler mounts the same. Maybe get it right from the horses mouth (mfg) first.

Yeah true, I am looking for the part numbers now, they weren’t available a few days back.

I worked for Yamaha for 10 years. If the exhaust mounted differently there would be a significant change to the part number. With just the two digits changing that indicates a change, but something small. And you likely won't get a straight answer out of Yamaha anyway, especially until the bikes get here, and even then it can be difficult unless you know somebody.

With different cams and head specs why would you even want an exhaust designed around the older engine?

Stock will likely work better than an exhaust developed for the older specs.

Good call . I didn’t really think about that.
I’ll wait for them to release a system design for 21 model.

I would just run the stock exhaust, it works great and is free with the bike!

It works great for about 10 hours, then it starts to sound insane.

That not how a 4 stoke exhaust works. A 2 stroke is another story. The man already said the headpipe was the same. The only change is the shorter muffler that likely contributes to the increased over-rev of the '21. IF the mounts are the same my guess is the aftermarket will remain unchanged for '21

Mine sounds just fine at 50 hours, but I did add a sparkarrestor so maybe it helps.

Watching these video's I can't help but notice the engine character does not appear to look or sound changed significantly. Kind of like the new CRF450R, a better version of YZ250F but no change in pecking order. Still looks like it flattens out on top.
