Yamaha has never made a Ranger.

In 1989, all of the 250's that Yamaha sold were:

Moto 4 250 (ATV)
Pro Hauler (ATV w/bed)
YZ 250 (MX bike)
Virago 250 (cruiser)

If they are Pro Haulers, they are pretty rare as 1989 was the only year they were built. They look like standard ATV's but they have a pickup style bed on the rear.

If you go to the auction, it would be interesting to see what they truly do have.

I'll go look only few miles. Fish and game buys and never uses the stuff much.Rather sit in pick-up than bikes.

Took ride to state aution site couldn't find "ranger". But there was about 8 or 9 of the suzuki GN125cc bikes . They must have come from some motorcycle driver training school. 3-4K miles on them. Sure good size bike for newbe drivers
