Nippy, lightweight, and plenty of fun, the Honda XR 250 Tornado certainly lives up to its name. Adventurous riders can count on the Honda XR 250 Tornado to tackle a variety of conditions with confidence, and then keep coming back for more. This versatile model is fitted with a powerful engine that is up to the challenge when you’re navigating your way along trails and tough off-road conditions. This sporty XR 250 is also quite happy zipping around town, and has the power for positive overtaking on tarmac or hitting the dirt trails at the weekend. It is also comfortable to ride, which makes every adventure enjoyable from start to finish.
This bike is designed and engineered for changing environments, whether that’s the urban jungle or the backwoods trails, dune bashing in the desert or commuting during the week. It is slim and lightweight, which helps you to easily manoeuvre at low speeds and free yourself from muddy terrain without getting bogged down. Long travel front suspension puts you in complete control and absorbs those bumps, ruts, and potholes, minimising the risk of arm-pump or muscle fatigue. A low seat height enables riders of different heights to reach the ground, so it’s adaptable and ideal for both men and women.
Spoked alloy wheels and a high-mounted mudguard and exhaust are other off-road details that complete the Tornado’s rugged good looks. The XR 250 Tornado is available with a sporty red and black finish that includes ‘Tornado’ branding on the side fairings and those iconic classic Honda decals. The black seat gets Honda branding to make road users aware that this is a special machine. These bold retro colours complement the silver alloys, rear suspension arm, forks, and frame.
One sophisticated feature found on the model is push-button start with keyed ignition. This begins your trips instantly and lets you choose who has access to the bike. The long motocross seat can carry you as well as a pillion passenger in complete comfort. Folding foot pegs mounted to the frame offers a supportive position for your passenger.
When it is just you on board the seat’s length allows you to slide forward and backward to stay in complete control as you adapt to the terrain. In addition, the roomy storage box on the bike’s left side holds essential items such as a basic tool kit, and is a useful feature that most rival bikes don’t offer.
Leading the XR 250 Tornado and you forward is a feisty, four-stroke 249cc engine which is supported by a six-speed gearbox. The powertrain provides plenty of torque - essential whether you travel off-road or on urban streets. Honda has fitted an 18-inch rear wheel and 21-inch front wheel to balance the bike’s weight and improve its handling in both situations.
The advanced suspension set-up absorbs bumps for enhanced rider comfort. Quality Honda engineering has been applied to all these components, to make sure they stand up to constant use and can handle the most demanding circumstances.
