2002 Yamaha Virago 250

Let us introduce you to the Virago 250, a feature-packed, lightweight cruiser…

The Virago 250 is a quarter-liter mount that the magazine press dubbed, affectionately, a “kick-butt little cruiser.”

We, of course, have been saying that for years, and so have the multitudes of motorcyclists who’ve discovered the joy of cruising aboard one. From its deceptively strong air-cooled V-twin powerplant and widely geared five-speed transmission to its pair of chrome exhaust pipes and wire-spoked wheels, everything about the 250 says big-bike features in an affordable, entry-level package.
