Where most other manufacturers see 250 quads as entry-level machines, Yamaha aims the Raptor at the more experienced rider who wants a little more performance. It has a manual clutch, a five-speed gearbox and a chassis that’s as sophisticated as many 450s. Also like most full race-quads, the Raptor 250 doesn’t have reverse.
