Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The XT250 is North America's sole survivor from the long-running XT lineup. It has fuel injection now, which is a good thing, but a wide-ratio transmission like its predecessor (the XT225) would make it even better. It's a basic bike that can still take you around the world - just ask author/rider Lois Pryce.
