Recommended Posts

As usual - never an answer after posing the question ...

Yamaha Thailand does not show this model on their website

Wow it has carburetor, not many new bikes with that anymore.

 

Looks comfortable, a good little run about bike, likely.

 

Personally not for me but each to their own.

Looked around - can't find any info on how it makes the grade with a carb, unless it is jetted very lean

If that's the case you better not flog it going over a high mountain😆

 

I prefer EFI, hassle free and fewer and fewer can adjust carburetors.

Does anyone have any other information that this bike is ACTUALLY coming to Thailand in 2022? The link cited above is the only thing I could find online about this and that website listed no sources and admitted there was no official info from Yamaha. I would not get hopes up just yet.

These bikes are not currently "available" anywhere in Thailand. Other than that single website (from the US) there has been no mention anywhere else that these bikes will be "available" in 2022. The official Yamaha.thailand sites do not mention it.

A carb jetted for lower altitude will run richer at high altitude.

Yes you are indeed right.

 

Quote: At high elevations, an engine's performance will decrease, and fuel consumption will increase due to the air being less dense. ... When the carburetor is modified for high elevation operation, the air-fuel mixture will be too lean for low elevation use.

 

Anyway, I doubt it will be a problem in Thailand, Nepal or Northern India is a different matter.

Again, there is no actual confirmation that this bike is coming to Thailand in 2022. Yamaha Thailand has said nothing (and their websites contain various announcements of what will be on offer in 2022).

Lifan Thailand are still showing their copy of the Yamaha V250 on their website:

They also show a custom version of the V250 which looks quite interesting:

It may have a simple ICU that control the fuel pump. 

It can easily be adjusted if you stay up in the mountains.
