2003 Honda VTR250
Excellent learner and workhorse bike
Indicator bulb blew. Nothing else has gone wrong.
Great learner bike, very forgiving, excellent handling.
Great commuter bike, very economical, good brakes, including rear.
32bhp, not bad for a 250cc.
I kept this bike when I upgraded to a 750 for another 5 months. On one ride (other bike being serviced), mostly twisties, my friend couldn't keep up with me.
Top speed 140kph, but easy to 120.
Clunk into first and you're good to go.
Tank range 13 Litres for 300 kms.
Get some Pirelli Sport Demon tyres. The best tyre for these bikes.
This bike was killed when a car driver turned in front of me, $10,000 damage! It was a very sad day.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
