A Look At The 2013 Yamaha Dual Purpose and Off Road Lineup

Yamaha has a wide variety of off road, dual purpose and motocross models for 2013.  We’ve already covered the YZ motocross line and several WR off road and dual purpose models here “2013 Yamaha WR and YZ Motorcycle Model Lineup.”  We’ll tackle the rest of the lineup here.

2013 Dual Purpose Models

Ride the trails on the weekend and to work Monday, all on the same motorcycle.  Yamaha’s dual purpose models are 100 percent street legal but tough enough to handle any off road experience.

XT250

Yamaha gave the XT250 a number of upgrades for 2013.  Perhaps the biggest is a fuel injection system that provides easy starting and smooth throttle response.  The XT250 also received upgrades to the piston and crankshaft to combine for improved heat dissipation, better performance and increased power.

With electric start and street legal features like the Enduro-style headlight, flex-mounted turn indicators, rear view mirrors and redesigned, compact instrument panel with digital readouts for speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeters, clock and indicator lights for low fuel, the XT250 makes for a great commuter bike.  But don’t limit your riding to paved surfaces.  An impressive 11.2 inches of ground clearance means the XT250 is just as much at home on the trails.

There’s plenty of power in the fuel-injected, air-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder 249 cc engine with a compression ratio of 9.5:1.  The XT250 has a five-speed transmission and chain final drive.  Stopping power is more than adequate via the 245 mm front disc and 203 mm rear disc.

Along with that incredible 11.2 inches of ground clearance, the 35 mm telescopic front fork provides 8.9 inches of travel and the rear suspension, swingarm with a rebound-adjustable single shock, has 7.1 inches of travel so you’re ready for any surface that stands between you and your destination.

The XT250 has a manageable 31.9 inch seat height, which is pretty amazing considering the ground clearance on this bike.  Wheelbase is 53.5 inches and wet weight is a svelte 291 pounds.  The fuel tank only holds 2.6 gallons of fuel, but with an estimated 76 mpg that’s good for a little less than 200 miles between fill ups.
