The 2009 Big Bear 250 ATV by Yamaha features the longest wheelbase in its class and provides durable off-road transportation when the going gets tough. Integrated floor boards protect rider and ATV from dirt and debris, even while carrying 165lbs of cargo on the racks and towing another 728 via bumper hitch. Pulling it all together is a stout 230cc, 4-stroke, air-cooled single over-head cam engine and 5-speed transmission with reverse.

Yamaha also offers several factory made Big Bear 250 accessories for this model including a front brush guard, front brush plate, front A-arm skid plates, a rear differential skid plate and over fenders. Talk about taking care of business, the Big Bear 250 may be the ‘little’ brother to the Grizzly but it is ready to take you, and all your gear, to places some ATVs can’t go reliably. 250 Yamaha ATV suggested MSRP was set at $4,099 brand new.
