(2009 / Racing Machine)
Since the release of the first model in 1973, the TZ250 production road racer powered by a 2-stroke, 250cc liquid-cooled engine has been used and loved around the world. From 1991, it adopted a 90° V-twin engine and continued to evolve with technology fed back from the YZR250 factory machines. After winning numerous All Japan Road Race Championship titles, its production was ended with the 2009 model (on display) due to changes in machine regulations for the World Championships and other race categories, ending its illustrious history.
