The Yamaha V-Star 250, cruiser motorcycle with plenty of torque, smooth roll-on power, light weight and a seat height of just 659mm from the pavement make the Yamaha V-Star 250 super-nimble and maneuverable, and the perfect Yamaha Star for Southeast Asia.
The Yamaha V-Star 250, currently being assembled in Malaysia by Hong Leong Yamaha Motor for possible ASEAN-wide distribution. Powered by a air-cooled, 249cc, 60-degree V-twin engine with a long, 66mm stroke produces plenty of bottom-end torque and smooth roll-on power. The only Japanese V-twin engine in its class. Breathing by a single 26mm Mikuni downdraft carburetor ensures optimal fuel/air mixing and delivery with superb throttle response. The widely geared five-speed transmission makes the most of Yamaha V-Star 250’s powerband.
Beautiful dual chrome exhaust pipes let the engine put out that classic V-twin rumble. The cruiser V-twin riding looks are increased by the 1490mm wheelbase which creates a long, low package with great handling and maneuverability. The plush and low-stepped saddle keeps the center of gravity low and lets almost everybody flatfoot the pavement.
Extensive chrome details accent engine and side covers for incomparable 'big bike' fit and finish. The stylishly sculpted teardrop fuel tank features 9.5-liters capacity for excellent cruising range. Chrome pullback handlebars are easy to reach and great looking. Forward-set footpegs enhance rider comfort by creating added legroom. Wide rear fender and front and rear wire-spoked wheels add the perfect classic, retro touch to this stylish package.
So lets all hope that Yamaha Thailand is going to import the Yamaha V-Star 250 into Thailand...
