Many motorcycles tag themselves dual-purpose or dual-sport, but most of those are really only comfortable as a single purpose. A bike that truly feels at home, on and off-road, with the same degree of confidence is rare. The versatile Yamaha XT250 is that exception, and the dual sport character of the XT250 has earned it legions of fans since its introduction in 2009, because it's equally at adept on the road or open trail.

Some of the bikes off-road features include a long-travel suspension that provides more than 11.2 inches of ground clearance and a seat that's only 31.9 inches up from the ground. For 2013 the engine remains essentially unchanged from last year's model, a 249cc air-cooled SOHC engine paired with a five-speed transmission.
One of the most significant changes for the 2013 XT's is a fuel injection system which replaces the earlier model's 33mm Teikei carburetor. There's also a slightly larger gas tank (2.6 vs. 2.4 gallons on the 2012 model). Yamaha claims that thanks to the new fuel injection system the XT now offers better fuel economy.
