When it comes to good honest on/off road capability and good times that last, you can’t beat a Yamaha XT250. Yamaha's cult classic is based on simple, rock-solid dependability with a fuel injected 249cc air-cooled donk at its core.
The easy-to-ride four-stroke single produces strong torque and smooth response across the entire rpm range – and will get you over 30kms on a litre of fuel.
No frills where none are needed.
Superb stopping power
245mm front disc and 203mm rear disc brakes combine to deliver superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.
Air-cooled 250cc four-stroke
Fuel injected 249cc air-cooled four-stroke for smooth throttle response and easy starting in nearly all conditions. 9.5:1 compression makes for great on- and off-road performance.
A light-and-strong forged piston inside a plated cylinder helps dissipate heat more efficiently, increasing both performance and durability.
New front suspension features improved damping and rigidity balance for better comfort and feel. Lightweight aluminium under-bracket and meter assembly significantly lighten front end to improve handling.
The front fork has 226mm of travel to soak up the rough stuff, both on-road and off. An aluminium lower triple clamp keeps the weight down.
Lightweight steel frame
A semi-double-cradle steel frame achieves a lighter, nimbler feel through greater mass centralisation. Greater lateral and torsional rigidity and reduced weight of the lower frame parts help produce light, stable handling.
