    In a just announced press release Yamaha has announced that the WR250R will no longer continue production

    In the press release Yamaha says:

    With deep consideration of evolving global market trends and regulations that limit production volumes on certain models, the following Yamaha models will be discontinued after model year 2020: YZF-R6, VMAX, WR250R and SMAX.

    Yamaha understands the iconic history of these models. Regarding the future, Yamaha is continuously looking at new ideas and concepts to support and expand the market, as well as enhance our customers’ experiences.

    Consumers can contact their local Yamaha dealer on the remaining model year 2020 availability of these discontinued models.

    No other adventure models in the Yamaha range appear to be affected.

    RIP WR250R.

    I just hope they replace it with something similar. Even better if it was 450-500cc, no heavier (the 250 is too heavy really) and as reliable as the 250.
