Overview

Description

Whether commuting to work or hitting the back country for a day of exploring, the ultra-reliable XT250 is a fun loving dual sport that is easy to ride. Light & nimble, with a low seat height, the fuel injected XT250 offers great versatility. Your adventure starts here.



Power: 249cc, air-cooled, fuel injected, single overhead cam (SOHC), 2-valve, 4-stroke single produces predictable torque across the entire RPM range for great on- and off-road fun.



Performance: Lightweight chassis, long travel suspension and plenty of ground clearance provide a fun ride while the fuel injected engine is super fuel efficient.

Engine Features
  • 249cc, air-cooled, fuel injected, SOHC, 2-valve, 4-stroke single produces easy to use power for daily commuting or exploring the back country.
  • Electric starting: Fast, easy no hassle starting
  • Single overhead camshaft (SOHC), 2-valve cylinder head: straight intake & exhaust tracts for excellent combustion chamber filling & discharge; basic design for easy, less expensive maintenance; utilizes easy to adjust conventional rocker arms & screw type tappet adjusters
  • Automatic cam chain tensioner: reduces mechanical engine noise and maintenance
  • Direct ceramic composite plated cylinder uses "liner less" bores: ceramic coating sprayed directly on the aluminum block, eliminating the liner & reducing weight; excellent heat dissipation for consistent power delivery; coating enhances the thin film of oil between the cylinder & piston, reducing friction & increasing power
  • Lightweight, short-skirt, forged aluminum piston: lightweight design means faster throttle response; reduced mechanical vibration for excellent durability
  • Lightweight ball bearing mounted crankshaft: excellent durability; fast engine response
  • Engine counter balancer: reduces engine vibration to maximize rider comfort
  • Multi plate wet type clutch is utilized: Clutch lever pull is light and easy.
  • Easy access element-type oil filter & drain plug for fast oil changes.
  • 33 mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system: system uses throttle position sensor (TPS); 10 hole injector for optimum fuel atomization; fuel injection benefits include choke-free starting, steady idling during warm up, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • 2.8 litre air box; located under the seat & utilizes an easy to access viscous (paper type) air filter
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled ignition (TCI): produces a strong spark for fast starts; provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms
  • Wide ratio 5-speed transmission with multi plate wet clutch: optimized gear ratios for both on & off road riding; 5th gear is an overdrive gear to reduce engine rpm at highway speeds; clutch lever pull is light & easy
  • Upswept exhaust system; exhaust note is quiet & environmentally friendly; cleanable spark arrestor; heat shields on header pipe & muffler protect rider & passenger from accidental contact
  • Air Induction System (AIS); injects fresh oxygen into the exhaust port to insure complete combustion; reduces harmful exhaust emissions
Chassis Features
  • Semi-double cradle steel frame: overall "wet" weight of 132kg (291 lbs.), makes the XT250 one of the lightest, most compact dual purpose machines on the market
  • Rugged, box section steel swing arm; fitted with easy-to-use eccentric chain adjusters
  • 35mm KYB fork with 225mm (8.9") of wheel travel: soaks up the rough stuff, both on-road and off road; rubber fork boots (gaiters) protect fork seals & tubes from dirt & grit damage
  • Lightweight aluminum lower triple clamp reduces weight.
  • Adjustable link Monocross rear suspension with 180mm (7.1") of wheel travel: 20 mm (0.8") of threaded spring preload adjustability; allows rider to adjust spring preload to match load or riding conditions
  • Low 810mm (31.9") seat height; creates a low centre of gravity for added manoeuvrability; inspires confidence by allowing most riders to put both feet on the ground
  • 285mm (11.2") of ground clearance enhances off road use.
  • 245mm front disc brake with twin piston Nissin caliper provides plenty of stopping power.
  • 203mm rear disc brake is squeezed by a single piston Nissin caliper; rugged plastic rear caliper protector
  • 9.6 litre steel fuel tank; in tank electric fuel pump; "reserve" portion of the tank is 1.8 litres (low fuel light illuminates)
  • 21" front & 18" rear DID alloy rims: excellent durability; reduces unsprung weight for enhanced suspension performance
  • Long, YZ-inspired seat: creates a balanced riding position with good rider mobility; provides roomy comfort for both rider & passenger
  • 60/55-watt, enduro-style, halogen headlight; small fairing helps reduce wind buffeting at highway speeds
  • Compact digital instrumentation: functions includes: speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel reserve trip meter (counts kilometers since low fuel light illuminated) & clock; other features include low fuel warning light, engine warning light & self-diagnosis function
