2010 Yamaha XT250

A strong engine, long travel and more offer versatility and all-around function.

A reliable fuel efficient 4-stroke engine calls the shots on the 2010 Yamaha XT250. But reliability isn't necessarily what you'll be thinking of when the pavement ends and your adventure really begins. Whether commuting around town or exploring the back country, the Yamaha XT250 is a fun loving dual sport that is easy and fun to ride.

See the world, one trail or road at a time.

Long-travel suspension and more than 11.2 inches of ground clearance live under a seat only 31.9 inches from the ground on the 2010 XT250. You also get electric start, 245mm front disc and 203mm rear disc brakes for superior stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.

Where does your riding take you ? Commuting in city traffic, winding down a country road or hustling your way down a trail to nowhere? For those who can't decide, we have the perfect answer.

The XT250 is designed for ultimate versatility at a great price. A reliable 4-stroke engine revs out predictable power, while a wide-ratio 5-speed transmission and class-leading low seat height gives you both performance and ease of use. Whether riding in the city or at the camp, let the XT250 spice up your adventure.

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.

•  Electric start makes firing up the 249cc four-stroke effortless.

•  245mm front disc and 203mm rear disc brakes combine to deliver superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.

•  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.

•  A light-and-strong forged piston inside a plated cylinder helps dissipate heat more efficiently, increasing both performance and durability.

•  33mm vacuum-type carburetor keeps the airflow up for excellent performance and throttle response.

•  A light crankshaft helps provide quick responsive power.

•  Wide-ratio five-speed transmission for maximum power and performance in a wide range of terrain and conditions.

•  Straighter intake tract for improved performance.

•  Hassle-free pushbutton electric starting adds extra convenience and reliability.

•  Engine is mounted high in the frame to provide an incredible 11.2 inches of ground clearance.

•  Automatic cam chain tensioner means minimal maintenance and longer engine life.

•  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.

•  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.

•  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.

•  A rear shock provides 7.1 inches of wheel travel through a progressive, Monocross®-style linkage system for a smooth ride.

•  21-inch front and 18-inch rear aluminum wheels are extremely durable and reduce unsprung weight for enhanced suspension performance and handling.

•  245mm front disc and 203mm rear disc brakes combine to deliver superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.

•  11.2 inches of ground clearance means you’ve got serious off-road capability, and a heavy-duty aluminum skid plate adds protection.

Additional Features
•  Multifunction digital LCD instrument panel with cool green background lighting is easily visible day or night. It also removes a lot of weight from the handlebar for light, precise handling.

•  The stylish gas tank holds a full 2.6 gallons (2.4 gallons CA) for long-range riding.

•  Long, thick seat creates a balanced riding position for optimal rider movement and comfort.

•  Durable and wide front fender is designed to keep mud and dirt off the rider when exploring off-road.

•  Frame-mounted passenger footpegs provide two-up riding capability.

•  Enduro-style, 60/55-watt halogen headlight features a cool 133mm lens for excellent visibility at night.

•  Flex-mounted turn indicators offer great durability against breakage.

•  Retractable brake and shift pedals deal with tough trail obstacles.

•  Durable fork boots help prevent rocks and debris from damaging fork sliders.

•  Standard dual rearview mirrors.

•  Easy-to-use choke lever.

•  Air-induction system helps clean up emissions, and a spark arrestor makes the XT trail ready.

•  Dependable, low-maintenance battery.
