Key Features
  Long-travel suspension and more than 11.2 inches of ground clearance live under a seat only 31.9 inches from the ground.  
  Electric start makes firing up the 249 cc four-stroke effortless.  
  245 mm front disc and 203 mm rear disc brakes combine to deliver superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.  
  249 cc air-cooled four-stroke with 9.5:1 compression makes maximum power at 7,500 rpm and maximum torque at 6,500 rpm for great on- and off-road performance.  
  A light-and-strong forged piston inside a plated cylinder helps dissipate heat more efficiently, increasing both performance and durability.  
  33 mm vacuum-type carburetor keeps the airflow up for excellent performance and throttle response.  
  A light crankshaft helps provide quick responsive power.  
  Wide-ratio five-speed transmission for maximum power and performance in a wide range of terrain and conditions.  
  Straighter intake tract for improved performance.  
  Hassle-free pushbutton electric starting adds extra convenience and reliability.  
  Engine is mounted high in the frame to provide an incredible 11.2 inches of ground clearance.  
  Automatic cam chain tensioner means minimal maintenance and longer engine life.  
Chassis / Suspension
  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.  
  The front fork has 8.9 inches of travel to soak up the rough stuff, both on-road and off. An aluminum lower triple clamp keeps the weight down.  
  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.  
  A rear shock provides 7.1 inches of wheel travel through a progressive, Monocross®-style linkage system for a smooth ride.  
  21-inch front and 18-inch rear aluminum wheels are extremely durable and reduce unsprung weight for enhanced suspension performance and handling.  
  245 mm front disc and 203 mm rear disc brakes combine to deliver superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces.  
  11.2 inches of ground clearance means you’ve got serious off-road capability.  
Additional Features
  Multifunction digital LCD instrument panel with cool green background lighting is easily visible day or night. It also removes a lot of weight from the handlebar for light, precise handling.  
  The stylish gas tank holds a full 2.4 gallons for long-range riding.  
  Long, thick seat creates a balanced riding position for optimal rider movement and comfort.  
  Durable and wide front fender is designed to keep mud and dirt off the rider when exploring off-road.  
  Frame-mounted passenger footpegs provide two-up riding capability.  
  Enduro-style, 60/55-watt halogen headlight features a cool 133 mm lens for excellent visibility at night.  
  Flex-mounted turn indicators offer great durability against breakage.  
  Retractable brake and shift pedals deal with tough trail obstacles.  
  Durable fork boots help prevent rocks and debris from damaging fork sliders.  
  Standard dual rearview mirrors.  
  Easy-to-use choke lever.  
  Air-induction system helps clean up emissions, and a spark arrestor makes the XT trail ready.  
  Dependable, low-maintenance battery.
