2012 Yamaha XT250 Review
A strong engine, long travel and more offer versatility and all-around function.

Paved. Unpaved. Unequalled.

With the electric start, 245mm front and 203mm rear disc brakes, and over 11 inches of ground clearance, the 2012 Yamaha XT250 makes traveling the world a breeze.

A reliable, fuel efficient 4-stroke powerplant calls the shots on the 2012 XT250. But reliability isn't necessarily what you'll be thinking of when the pavement ends and your adventure really begins. Whether commuting around town or exploring the back country, the 2012 Yamaha XT250 is a fun loving dual sport that is easy and fun to ride.

Where does your riding take you ? Commuting in city traffic, winding down a country road or hustling your way down a trail to nowhere? For those who can't decide, we have the perfect answer.

The XT250 is designed for ultimate versatility at a great price. A reliable 4-stroke engine revs out predictable power, while a wide-ratio 5-speed transmission and class-leading low seat height gives you both performance and ease of use. Whether riding in the city or at the camp, let the XT250 spice up your adventure.

See the world one trail or road at a time affordably and economically – made possible by the 2012 Yamaha XT250 and TW200 dual purpose motorcycles.

The XT250 has long-travel suspension and more than 11.2 inches of ground clearance under a seat only 31.9 inches from the ground. Electric start makes firing up the 249cc four-stroke effortless while the 245mm front disc and 203mm rear disc brakes combine to deliver superb stopping power on both paved and unpaved surfaces. The semi-double-cradle steel frame achieves a lighter, nimbler feel through greater mass centralization while greater lateral and torsional rigidity and reduced weight of the lower frame parts help produce light, stable handling. Additional features include the multifunction digital LCD instrument panel with cool green background lighting that’s easily visible day or night, and frame-mounted passenger foot pegs to provide two-up riding capability.

The XT250 achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 73 mpg (US)* with a fuel tank that holds 2.4 gallons.

Need a Florida Motorcycle Accident Lawyer and looking for an ethical, experienced and aggressive lawyer to figure out if you may be entitled to money compensation for your serious injury?

In Florida, motorcycle accidents happen mostly because automobile drivers do not share the road. I frequently represent seriously injured motorcycle riders because a car fails to see the motorcycle and then the car pulls out into the intersection. Another common reason is that the car driver changes lanes without looking. The most frequent injuries are fractures of shoulder or wrists from going over the handlebars, or femur (long bone of the leg) fractures from laying the bike down or a side impact. Unfortunately, even at slower speeds and with a helmet, I have represented the family of fathers and sons who have died in motorcycle crashes.

As a Florida Motorcycle accident lawyer, I understand that you may want to express you individuality and freedom on the road by making the decision as an adult not to wear a helmet. The insurance company in a brain injury case will argue that you are the cause of your own injury being worse because if you were wearing a helmet the injury would not have been so bad.

I retain experts in biomechanics, who are engineers and if the evidence is available and in your favor, they can calculate the force of the impact and tell the insurance company that they are wrong. That wearing a helmet would not have made a difference. A helmet sometimes can actually make the injury worse. I am not advocating that you should not wear a helmet , it's just that wearing one does not always make a difference. It depends on the accident circumstances. Each Florida Motorcycle Accident claim will get my personal attention to detail and my 30 years of experience.

If you would like to consult for free with a Florida civil trial lawyer who is board certified as an expert in civil trial then please call 888-446-1999

There will be no charge for lawyer fees of representation or costs of representation if there is not money compensation recovery.
