What is the difference between a rebel 250 and a yamaha virago

Best Answer — by Asker

The Rebel is a parallel engine, as the previous answer while the Virago is a more V-twin setup like you see in larger cruiser bikes.

The is geared better for use on highways, a magazine test-verified top speed of 85 mph. The Rebel has a claimed top of 85 mph, but tends to redline that speed depending on factors (rider’s weight, etc.)

The Virago also tends to better fuel economy the Rebel. The Virago reportedly 78 miles per gallon fuel while the Rebel gets 65 miles per gallon.

From experience, if you’re not a short (under 5’6 or so,) the will fit you better. The Rebel’s is short and feels cramped to average and tall people. 6’3, and I can’t do parking lot safely on the Rebel due to its handlebars my knees when turning at low speeds.

The Virago will still small if you’re a tall but not nearly as bad as the Rebel.

Go sit on both of and decide which you like the of better. That’s a huge in making your decision. get yourself enrolled in a Motorcycle Foundation Beginner RiderCourse, will teach you some of the of riding and may even earn you motorcycle license endorsement. You get some seat-time on a Rebel in class, since they’re a bike for use in the beginner’s course.

Then, you can use your experience in the to help you better decide bike is for you.

Personally, go with the Virago, but that’s a of opinion. The Rebel is too small to fit my frame comfortably, and I’ve felt it was straining too much on mph highways, which is where I do of my riding. Plus, the classic and pulling power of the Virago’s engine is something to be desired.

If you’re open to other do yourself a favor and check out the GZ250, the Suzuki TU250, the S40 (formerly known as the LS650 the Kawasaki Vulcan 500, and the Nighthawk 250. The Nighthawk also be used as a trainer in MSF course. It was in mine.

Nice bike for running around town, with the engine/transmission as the Honda Rebel— but a lot better designed than the for regular and tall-size people to
