About the 2005 Yamaha TT-R250

The Yamaha TT-R250 is an entry-level, trail bike that Yamaha produced from 1999-2006 to compete with the Honda XR250R. The TTR250 was equipped with electric start, and was designed to be reliable and long-lived.

These are rock-solid all-day trail and dirt road bikes that will plug along (like a tractor, as one poster put it) or pull right up with the pack. The rear disc, stronger engine and better suspension puts it way ahead of the 230s and lighter trail bikes.
