Very Practical Bike for the Money
By Jeff Gilleran(Owner), Sep. 19, 2008
When shopping for a Dualsport bike, you look at several things.

How good is it in the dirt? On the street?

Is the handling good?

How is the performance?

Fuel economy?

Ride height?

Features?

I can sum this bike up as an excellent machine for the money.

It starts of being well built with quali... Read Full Review

a good bang for the buck
By capt gary(Owner), Sep. 28, 2008
I have not owned a bike for more than 30 years when I owned a yamaha dealership in Plainville,CT. Then we were riding the 250 and 360 enduros. These bikes have come a long long way since then. The power of a 4 stroker is wonderful and quite unexpected. There is not a dual sport on the market at a... Read Full Review

By ahilis(Owner), Jul. 2, 2009

The displacement is small, but it performs much better than any 250 4-stroke I've ever ridden, including other Yamahas. I was hesitant to buy it because of it's engine size, but I was pleas...

Worth every penny.
By aaron hachenberg(Owner), Mar. 2, 2009
I bought the '08 almost a year ago, and love it. It is suprisingly quick, and will cruise comfortably at 55mph. It gets between 65-71mpg if I ride it at highway speeds, or closer to 90mpg when I average 35mph or less. So it really sips gas while trail riding.

I have about 2500 miles on the bike(m... Read Full Review
