    Built for everyone


    Light. nimble, fuel miser. Great if you're a short butt. Easy to handle. Forgiving, well behaved, well balanced. Doesn't have the low end torque of a Honda but more power in the top end. Smooth and quiet. Doesn't vibrate. Like all singles regular oil and filter changes are a must. More feedback at the front wheel than you'd expect. Not an enduro - more of a trail/recreational commuter. They should make a 400 version. EFI and six gears. Great brakes and all day saddle comfort. One of the best motorcycles I've owned in the 250cc displacement. Good resale value, starts first time anytime.

    Great little bike for commuting


    I got this bike for going to and from work. It's a good bike for a smaller person. Easy on fuel too. Nice and light. Good off road but wouldn't take her on anything too rough. Not too good on the highway due to size and engine size, but that's to be expected. Perfect commuting bike

    Great for shorter riders


    This is the second XT250 I've owned. As it's a very simple, air cooled four stroke, it's very low maintenance and extremely reliable. It is a great learner bike, but it's also suitable for more experienced riders who don't necessarily want a full on Enduro bike.

    I love this bike as it's a great L's bike that my whole family will be learning on. It's got a great setup and esay access for when you want to do a service yourself. Overall it's a great bike to learn on and have fun off road as well.
    Great Learner Bike, rides very smooth, Easy to maintain at home
    A bit light for riding on the highway as it gets thrown around a bit
