Make easy work of traffic with the Honda XR250
The Honda XR series consists of several trail and dual-sport motorcycle models including the Honda XR250R and XR250L. All use the same four-stroke 249cc engines, but the R is kickstart only and more suited to the dirt track. If you're looking for an XR250, you'll find a top selection here on eBay.
The XR 250 Honda motorbikes are great for learners and younger riders as they give a great ride without being overwhelmingly powerful.
That said, they are a little on the larger and heavier side than other 250cc bikes, so perhaps are a better match for taller riders, and those who have solid slow handling skills and a good level of confidence on a motorcycle. As with all Honda bikes, these models are reliable, efficient, and good looking, and should you need a spare part they are not hard to come by. From engine to exhaust, every part does the job wonderfully, and for those who like to get to know their bikes in the garage as well as on the road you can happily do some tinkering and change out some spares in different specs.
Both on the track and the road, the Honda XR 250 range gets rave reviews, with bikers praising its capabilities, comfort, and performance. So, if you want to head off-road and get dirty at the weekend you can do, but in the week, you can still get about town just as easily, and quickly.
That said, it's worth noting that the XR250R was designed for off-road competition and so the tyres it comes with are not always road legal. The XR250L is the street-approved version so it passes as a good road bike, but with the same feeling of fun as the XR250R. Overall, it's worth considering which kind of riding you'll be doing more of before settling on a model. The Honda XR250 bikes have been incredibly popular for many years, so you're sure to the perfect bike for you on eBay.
