Features

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- and off-road while an aluminum lower triple clamp keeps the weight down.
  • NIMBLE STEERING: The 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.

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's fuel injection offers 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 provides quick, responsive power.
  • 5-SPEED TRANSMISSION: Wide-ratio five-speed transmission provides maximum power and performance in a wide range of terrain and conditions.
  • EFFICIENT INTAKE DESIGN: The XT250's straighter intake tract improves performance.
  • CONVENIENT ELECTRIC START: Hassle-free push-button electric starting adds extra convenience and reliability.
  • TRAIL-READY CHASSIS: The engine is mounted high in the frame for incredible 11.2 inches of ground clearance.
  • LOW MAINTENANCE ENGINE: Automatic cam chain tensioner means minimal maintenance and longer engine life.

Other 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: The long, thick seat creates a balanced riding position for optimal movement and comfort.
  • PROTECTIVE FENDERS: The 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.
  • FOREST-FRIENDLY EXHAUST: A spark arrestor makes the XT trail-ready.
  • MODERN BATTERY: Dependable, low-maintenance battery.

Top Features

  • ADVANCED LONG-TRAVEL SUSPENSION: Long-travel suspension and more than 11.2 inches of ground clearance live under a seat that's only 31.9 inches from the ground.
  • MODERN FUEL INJECTION: The XT250's fuel injection offers smooth throttle response and easy starting in nearly all conditions.
  • CONVENIENT ELECTRIC START: Electric start makes firing up the 249cc four-stroke effortless.
  • DUAL DISC BRAKES: 245mm front disc and 203mm rear disc brakes combine to deliver superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.
