2005 Yamaha TT-R250 Off-Road Model
The TT-R250 is the bike of choice for those riders ready to explore. With the reliability and comfort expected from Yamaha products, smooth four-stroke power and virtually maintenance-free upkeep, the TT-R250 leads the way for riders looking to have some sporting fun. While the off-road racer prefers the WR models, recreational riders prefer the smooth power of the TT-R250.

Perfect for the casual rider looking to take it nice and easy while on a camping trip or just out for a weekend with the guys, the TT-R250 features even, easy-to-handle power courtesy of its 249cc, four-valve, air-cooled, DOHC, four-stroke engine. That, combined with its narrow chassis and plush suspension, allows riders to aggressively attack the trails one day and causally play ride with the family the next.

Throw a leg over the TT-R250 and push the button on the easy-to-use electric start and the 250cc powerplant fires to life. If you find yourself on a difficult hillclimb, stalled on a long off-camber section, or positioned awkwardly on a rocky single-track section, the electric start becomes a must-have feature, as kick-starting a bike in these situations just wouldn’t do.

The TT-R250 benefits from plush suspension with 11.2 inches of front- and rear-wheel travel, meaning that handling the desert whoop sections, trees or ruts is as comfortable as they are fun. More than 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 nature’s bumps.

Excellent 245mm front and 220mm rear disc brakes are mated to the same Dunlop 739 rubber that the YZ and WR lineup receive, allowing the TT-R owner to celebrate every twist, turn and downhill section with the confidence of strong, predicable braking power. Handguards are a benefit while navigating narrow single-tracks, and the odometer, complete with a 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 U.S. 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). Suggested Retail: $4,399 USD.
