2002 Yamaha TT-R250 Off-Road Model

At the top of Yamaha’s TT-R family is the TT-R250. With a heritage of bulletproof reliability, the 2002 Yamaha TT-R250 epitomizes the attention to detail riders have come to expect from Yamaha. A perfect machine for taming the off-road elements, the TT-R250 blends motocross sleekness with enduro features highlighted by a 250cc four-stroke engine, electric start, front and rear disc brakes, tripmeter and hand guards.

The TT-R250 features a 249cc, four-valve, air-cooled, DOHC, four-stroke engine. This powerplant, combined with its narrow chassis and plush suspension, enables the rider to aggressively attack the trails one day and causally play ride with the family the next.

Throw a leg over the TT-R250, slide your thumb over to the electric start, push the button and the 250cc-powerplant fires to life. Stuck on a difficult hill climb, stalled on a long off-camber section or positioned awkwardly on a rocky single-track section, the electric start becomes a must-have feature. The TT-R250 benefits from plush suspension with 11.2 inches of front- and rear-wheel travel. Over 11 inches of ground clearance and a narrow overall width allows riders to climb over rocks and glide through the trees while providing plenty of plushness to soften the occasional drop off. Excellent 245mm front and 220mm rear disc brakes are matted to new Dunlop 739 rubber, allowing the TT-R owner to celebrate every twist, turn and downhill section with the confidence of stronger yet predictable braking power. Handguards provide protection while navigating narrow, single tracks. An odometer complete with resetable tripmeter allows one to follow those marked trail systems to the tenth of a mile. With an array of standard items such as a headlight, taillight and United States Forest Service-approved spark arrestor, the TT-R250 is tailored for the off-road enthusiast. Even so, given the wide range of terrain and individual demands of enduro riders nationwide, the TT-R250 owner may choose to customize his bike with myriad accessories available though Yamaha’s Parts and Accessory Division (YPAD).

The 2002 Yamaha TTR250 is available in Team Yamaha Blue/White. The TTR250 hits dealerships in October 2001. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $4,699.
