Yamaha lets press play with Raptor 250

Yamaha setup a backyard-style motocross track right next to the harbor in Long Beach, California to give members of the media their first chance to ride the all new 2008 Raptor 250. According to those on hand, it was a whole lot of fun...the track and especially the quad itself.

While not a high-performance quad like the 450s, it impressed nonetheless with its ability as a true sport quad. Furthermore, its smaller size and controllability are just what the sport needs for newer and younger riders.

Check out some of the accolades on page 67 of the December 2007 issue of Quad Magazine or page 74 in ATV Rider for the same month.
