2012 Yamaha WR 250R
Best in its ClassBy (I am an Owner) on Mar 18, 2016
This is by far the best 250 dual sport bike you can get. Low maintenance machine. Will do anything you ask it to do. Solid built bike. Awesome maintenance intervals. Could leave it all stock and be happy with it. Best part is that it has a ton of aftermarket parts that you can add to it to ... make it your very own meeting any needs you have. Awesome on road and off road. Best bang for your buck. It's totally worth the extra money. You get what you pay for.
Cool bikeBy (I am an Owner) on Jun 14, 2012
Tall gearing for highway use
Fully adjustable shocks front and back
Strong charging system for things like heated vest, grips ect..
Aluminium frame ...
Fuel Injected - not sure if this is a good idea on a dirt bike thats used in such harsh conditions
Gas cap lock
On the down side............................
Harsh ride over small bumps
Choppy on off throttle at slow speeds
LCD display is hard to read and seems cheep
Great bike for hard charging the trails. Been looking for a dual sport that can run the highway and take the big hits off road for years and the WR does it well.
I think the new honda 250 may kick Yamaha down to second place with there MUCH LOWER PRICE and "almost" exact specs. And the Honda is a better looking bike too with a lower seat.
Time will tell.....
