2016 Yamaha XT250

Keeping the Honda CRF250L in sight, Yamaha has designed the fuel-injected XT250 with light off-road duties in mind (the WR250R is for the serious dirt rider), and made it appealing to new riders with a low seat height and mildly performing motor.

Whether on the street or dirt, riders will appreciate the maneuverability provided by the XT’s short wheelbase and wide steering lock. Dual disc brakes, good ground clearance, and a comfortable seat round out the package.
