The Yamaha WR250R is a dual-sport motorcycle made by Yamaha Motor Company. It has a 250cc (15 cu in) liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke DOHC engine, fed premium fuel by electronic fuel injection.[3] It has remained largely unchanged since its introduction in 2008, with most differences being cosmetic.[4] Its sister model is the WR250X, the supermoto build with a more street oriented set of wheels, brakes, and suspension. The WR in both names indicates a wide-ratio gear box designed to offer good low-speed responsiveness in off-road situations while still being able to achieve freeway speeds.

Despite the similar name, it shares very few common components with the lighter, non-street-legal off-road competition WR250F.
