2012 Yamaha XT250
Paved. Unpaved. Unequalled.
With the electric start, 245 front and 203 millimeter rear disc brakes, and over 11 inches of ground clearance, the XT250 makes traveling the world a breeze.
Key Features: Long-travel suspension and more than 11.2 inches of ground clearance live under a seat only 31.9 inches from the ground.

Key Features: 245mm front disc and 203mm rear disc brakes combine to deliver superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.
Engine: 249cc air-cooled four-stroke with 9.5:1 compression makes maximum power at 7500 rpm and maximum torque at 6500 rpm for great on- and off-road performance.
Engine: A light-and-strong forged piston inside a plated cylinder helps dissipate heat more efficiently, increasing both performance and durability.
Engine: 33mm vacuum-type carburetor keeps the airflow up for excellent performance and throttle response.
