I purchased this 1990 VTR250 new on Jan. 31, 1992. New and unsold in a dealer's showroom 2 years after its model year, it was purchased for a very fair price. It was last ridden on November 6, 1994, total mileage 988 (1581 km). This is a quality, refined machine offering excellent performance for 250cc.
The VTR250 is pictured above at Echo Lake, Colorado, elevation 10597ft (3230 meters). In 1944, during World War II, Echo Lake and the surrounding areas were closed to the public. It was here that soldiers received field training and learned to cope with Arctic-like conditions. For more information on the Echo Lake area visit my Mount Evans Ride pages.
The black band on the sidecover and fuel tank is a protective fabric I installed to keep me from scratching the paint when riding. It slips on and off and is very easy to remove.
Occasionally I am asked about the rear rack. It was not made for the VTR250 but I adapted it to fit. It is a "Super Sport Rack" and was manufactured by M/C Enterprises in California, U.S.A.
The 1990 models were the last VTR250s offered for sale in the U.S.
Are you an afficionado of motorcycles with 90° V-twin (L-twin) engines? Here are three with that engine configuration but in other aspects are quite different.
Regardless of their differences, all three are fine performers!
