How do you discover a bike’s true potential? Let a top pro ride it – and ride it hard. And that’s exactly what we did with the all-new 2010 YZ250F a few weeks back with Team Toyota Yamaha/Red Bull/Blackfoot/Fox Racing’s Kyle Beaton….

 Arguably the fastest MX2 (250F) rider in the country, little “Beats” knows how to put a bike through the wringer. He’s also been riding Yamaha’s for nearly a decade, so he knows pretty much everything there is to know about these badass blue machines. Well, I mean, he is a pro racer, so he at least knows where gas and the water go … just kidding, Kyle!

But he really didn’t know anything about the new 250F until he tried it out at our press launch, so it was interesting to hear his feedback and see how he liked the changes (new bilateral beam frame, quicker revving motor, better handling, new ergonomics). So what did he think? Check out the video below to find out!

Go Beats go! It’s hard not to like a wee, teeny, tiny little guy like Beaton who can twist the throttle. You could put him in your pocket and take him with you to the track. He could even fit in a stocking at Christmas time. Christmas Beats!white-yamaha
The limited edition white version features some trick looking black Excel rims. Cool, eh?rads
The all-new bilaterel beam frame makes for incredible turning prowess, lighter weight and a better ergonomic feel.
