We fall in love bikes all the time here. we play the game of ‘Which would you buy if money was no object?’ it on for hours and hours and the list longer and more ridiculous. The addition to our mechanical love is Yamaha’s venerable TTR250. in 1995, the TTR has become a favourite those looking for a more and comfortable ride.

It is in every of the word a ‘trailbike’. It’s not in any way a

It’s proven to be a reliable and machine that’s both plenty of riders their to the sport and perhaps in equal everything some riders ever need in a bike.

website has an interesting if not a little blurb on the TTR. It says: TTR250 is fully at home some expression of aggression. But enough, the very character that make a TTR250 a single-track warrior for advanced make it user-friendly for riders down to novice ranking.”

Now I laughed at that until I back on what we did on the bike and from the term “single-track I’d have to agree. In fact I’m surprised by what we were to actually do on this bike and I most of you will be too.


To look at, the TTR250 is nothing of unassuming. Next to a new WR450F, the traily looks dumpy and It’s not in any way appealing to riders who all their time on 450F breathers.

It wasn’t all that to me when we took it out on a photo

Someone blasted away on a and another roared off on a WR450F, me to quietly put my way out the driveway and off to the trails. amount of disappointment that I on one of the ‘cool’ bikes was alleviated by the that the TTR is essentially a couch wheels. It’s so comfortable on big, soft seat and the exhaust and lack of vibration add to it quite a serene ride. I was on the road. I still felt when we got to the trails.

Normally I would fire up a on the transit section and get psyched wrestling the latest enduro over the next few hours. instead of having AC/DC in my I had Supertramp.

We entered the bush via a that we’ve used for years and therefore know the back of our front fenders. an open track that you can hit at a pace as long as you’re of some ruts that sit at 45 towards the end. As a result of (ie years of riding that flat out), I took off on the TTR and looked to match the speed of the two

To my surprise the TTR made it to the other end

Next trial was to tackle a but fast, rocky downhill that the enduro bikes glide over at pace. The TTR so much glide as bobble, but it slow me down at all. I the rear jumped up a few times and it in the memory banks for when we hit the but the front was stable and it was allowing me to all the fun I wanted.

the next hour the TTR kept with the 450s in almost situation. It was out-accelerated everywhere and in the section it couldn’t blast like the champs. To stay in up hills it needed a small but once the revs were up, it was no haul in.

Once I had the momentum up the TTR was of maintaining a serious trail and again was doing it while to provide the most comfortable of I was blown away by how fast you can a TTR without any worrying moments. I was away by how much fun it was doing it

Keeping things in perspective, I did a couple of moments. That that jumped up on the rocky did so big time over a jump and we did an but unplanned endo that ended before we reached the approaching ruts. I also nearly lost the front locking the brakes racing the CRF a tight right hander, I came into at enduro pace; not trailbike pace.

It has to be said though that to the TTR up, I had to ride it well above its capabilities.


We are thoroughly with the TTR250. We already new it was a road/trail bike, but we had no idea it was so when given a blast in the It’s not an equal for the enduro in any way mind you and we’re not suggesting you dump your WR-F for the

But there’s a fair augment it’s a more versatile than the WR-F. It’s to be as many things for as many as possible and it does that job well.


more from your There are plenty of people out fiddlin’ and sharing their As with any bike straight off the the TTR’s set-up is a variable We rode a standard machine, but you have to.

The TTR has been around enough to have attracted all of mods, but for a good place to out plenty of info on the little you should of course talk to dealer, but also check out
