The Yamaha Virago 250 has the classic standard cruiser look without the unmanageable power & torque that a new motorcycdanh sách doesn’t need while learning the basics of riding.

Out of all of the standard style motorcycles I have sầu lớn say that I really lượt thích the look of the Virago the best. Not only is it small & nimble, but it has a fair amount of chrome on it lớn satisfy most appetites. Budget-wise it also sits in a nice sweet spot that makes it a bit more expensive sầu but with nice gear danh mục that’s worth the money. We wouldn’t recommend it if you are after a cheap starter motorcycle.

Motorcycle Safety Foundation và the Yamaha Virago 250

When I first took the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Basic Rider Course, they had a few different bikes for everyone khổng lồ ride. Most of them were in the 150cc – 250cc range. The bike I chose to ride for part of it was the Yamaha Virago 250. It is an absolutely awesome bike khổng lồ learn the motorcycle riding fundamentals on.

The 249cc, SOHC, 60 degree v-twin engine provides enough power for cruising around the streets, và can even get you around on the freeway. The xe đạp is lightweight và that makes maneuvering at low speeds incredibly easy. It is important lớn keep in mind that the lachồng of motorcycle mass means the xe đạp is so light weight that you might get blown around on the freeway more than would be comfortable.

Yamaha Virago 250 Review

Yamaha Virago is Great for Short Riders!

This xe đạp was definitely made with smaller riders in mind. The seat height is only 27 inches, which is a full 2 inches lower than the Kawasaki Nin-Ja 250, a motorcycle already famous for its low seat height! I was very impressed by that. Unfortunately, that means that if you are a taller rider (6 feet or taller) you may feel too cramped on this motorcycle.

The Yamaha virago is one of the most expensive beginner motorcycles in the 250 class, but after you start it up and hear the rumble it makes you will be able khổng lồ see why. That small engine really puts out a very nice sound, especially when you open it up a little. And that’s one really great reason I love sầu smaller bikes even though I’m an experienced riders. You can open the throttle all the way on this virago without immediately going warp speed like you would on a 600cc bike. I always say, it can be a lot more fun riding a ‘slow’ xe đạp fast, than a fast xe đạp slow!

Overall, I love the styling & fuel efficiency of this xe đạp but wish there was more power on tap. In comparison, this Virago is already able to go 10 lớn 15kph faster than the GZ250 (my first bike) và has a nice vtwin sound. However if you rev it out it does sound lượt thích a lawnmower.
