2004 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.

Add to that light weight, a low (27″) seat height, and long wheelbase, and you start to see why so many beginning riders have entrusted their learning curves to this nimble, confidence-inspiring cruiser. The Virago 250. Heavyweight styling. Lightweight packaging.
