2016 Yamaha XT250 www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE

Reliable Four-Stroke Motor
249cc air-cooled four-stroke with 9.5:1 compression makes for great on-and off-road performance.
•Modern Fuel Injection
The XT250 has fuel injection for smooth throttle response and easy starting in nearly all conditions.
•Advanced Cylinder Design
A light-and-strong forged piston inside a plated cylinder helps dissipate heat more efficiently, increasing both performance and durability.
•Responsive Power
A light crankshaft helps provide quick responsive power.
•5-Speed Transmission
Wide-ratio five-speed transmission for maximum power and performance in a wide range of terrain and conditions.
•Efficient Intake Design
Straighter intake tract for improved performance.
•Convenient Electric Start
Hassle-free push-button electric starting adds extra convenience and reliability.
•Trail-Ready Chassis
Engine is mounted high in the frame to provide an incredible 11.2 inches of ground clearance.
•Low Maintenance Engine
Automatic cam chain tensioner means minimal maintenance and longer engine life.

 

CHASSIS / SUSPENSION

Strong, Compact Frame
A semi-double-cradle steel frame achieves a lighter, nimbler feel through greater mass centralization. Greater lateral and torsional rigidity and reduced weight of the lower frame parts help produce light, stable handling.
•Advanced Long-Travel Suspension
The front fork has 8.9 inches of travel to soak up the rough stuff, both on road and off. An aluminum lower triple clamp keeps the weight down.
•Nimble Steering
Maximum turning angle of the handlebar is 51 degrees—almost like a trials machine. Combined with a short wheelbase of only 53.5 inches, the XT250 has a super-tight turning radius for excellent maneuverability.
•Linkage-Style Shock
A rear shock provides 7.1 inches of wheel travel through a progressive, Monocross® linkage system for a smooth ride.
•Dirt-Ready Wheels
21-inch front and 18-inch rear aluminum wheels are extremely durable and reduce unsprung weight for enhanced suspension performance and handling.
•Generous Ground Clearance
11.2 inches of ground clearance means you’ve got serious off-road capability.



 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Advanced LCD Instruments
Multifunction digital LCD instrument panel with cool green background lighting is easily visible day or night. It also removes unnecessary weight from the handlebar for light, precise handling.
•Extended Fuel Range
The stylish gas tank holds a full 2.6 gallons for long-range riding.
•Comfortable Saddle
Long, thick seat creates a balanced riding position for optimal rider movement and comfort.
•Protective Fenders
Durable and wide front fender is designed to keep mud and dirt off the rider when exploring off-road.
•Passenger-Ready
Frame-mounted passenger foot pegs provide two-up riding capability.
•Bright Illumination
Enduro-style, 60/55-watt halogen headlight features a cool 133mm lens for excellent visibility at night.
•Dual Sport Lighting
Flex-mounted turn indicators offer great durability against breakage.
•Fork Protection
Durable fork boots help prevent rocks and debris from damaging fork sliders.
•Forestry-Friendly Exhaust
A spark arrestor makes the XT trail ready.
