Did You Know?
In 2008 Yamaha decided to target entry level riders with the ultra-sporty and agile Raptor 250R. The 250R has an aggressive 249cc air cooled 4-stroke. The Raptor 250R was designed for new riders, but the power to weight ratio made it pack the punch of its big brother with a light rider in the saddle.
The Yamaha Raptor Series includes one of the most complete youth ATV line-ups in the industry. Yamaha has offered the Raptor in 50cc, 80cc, 90cc and 125cc sizes which allows its riders to gradually increase power and size making the transition to a full-size sport quad safer and less intimidating.
