Based on the all-conquering YZ motocrossers, the IT 250 uses a chrome-moly double-cradle frame and Yamaha`s exclusive Monoshock suspension and is powered by an air-cooled, 2-stroke single. It shifts through a 6-speed ‘box. A capable off-roader in dual-sport guise.
Here’s an interesting article from Cycle World magazine on modifications and improvements that can be made.
The 1983 Yamaha IT250 comes to us from a dirtbike collector here in Southern California. He purchased it in 2022 and immediately replaced the plastics and an exhaust from DG Performance to finish the bike off. Reportedly in good running condition, the bike is being sold on a clean, clear California title with recently renewed registration, photographed.
