Honda XL250 Gallery

The XL250, and the later XL350, laid the groundwork for the revolutionary Yamaha XT500 of 1975, which initiated the big modern four-stroke-enduro wave. The XL250 is an "enduro" or dual sport like, but it is street legal type bike and intended for on and off-road use. The bike is completely mechanically operated and there are no hydraulics on the bike at all. The 250cc 4-stroke motor produces 24 bhp at the wheel. The bike weighs 288 lbs with oil, grease, and fuel, which the capacity is 2.4 gallons (9.5 litres). Demand for this model has remained high among collectors and enthusiasts.

    This bike is a four stroke 250cc introduced in 1972 and manufactured through most of the 1980s. When it appeared it was the first modern four stroke enduro motorcycle, and the first mass-produced 4-valve motorcycle. (The first 4-valve single was the Rudge 4-valve of the 1920s, and the first 4-valve engine was the Indian 8-valve V2 racer of 1911).
