Features

Chassis / Suspension

  • AGILE CHASSIS: The 58.7-inch wheelbase creates a long, low package for great handling and maneuverability.
  • STRONG BRAKES: A 282mm single front disc brake and a rear drum brake provide plenty of stopping power.
  • LOW SEAT HEIGHT: Plush and low-stepped saddle provides exceptional comfort and keeps the rider sitting low, allowing almost anyone to flatfoot the pavement.
  • PLUSH SUSPENSION: The telescopic front fork with 5.5 inches of travel provides a nice, smooth ride while the twin rear shocks feature 3.9 inches of travel and adjustable spring preload for versatility under various loads.

Engine

  • UNIQUELY POTENT V-TWIN: Air-cooled 249cc 60-degree V-twin engine with a long 66mm stroke produces plenty of bottom-end torque and smooth roll-on power. And it’s the only V-twin engine in its class too.
  • SMOOTH RUNNING: The single 26mm Mikuni® downdraft carburetor ensures optimal fuel/air mixing and smooth power delivery with superb throttle response.
  • FLEXIBLE GEARING: Widely geared five-speed transmission makes the most of V Star 250’s powerband.
  • ELECTRIC START: Easy, dependable electric starting.
  • CLASSIC EXHAUST LAYOUT: Beautiful dual chrome exhaust pipes let the engine breathe and put out that classic V-twin rumble.
  • LOW MAINTENANCE MOTOR: Automatic cam chain tensioner virtually eliminates maintenance and helps extend engine life.

Other Features

  • OPEN RIDING POSITION: A custom style handlebar gives the V Star 250 both a modern look and comfortable riding position.
  • BIG BIKE STYLE: Extensive chrome details accent the engine and side covers for a handsome “big bike” fit and finish.
  • GENEROUS FUEL RANGE: The stylishly sculpted teardrop fuel tank features 2.5-gallon capacity for excellent cruising range.
  • FORWARD MOUNT CONTROLS: The forward-set foot pegs enhance rider comfort for added legroom.
  • STYLISH FENDERS: Wide rear fender and front and rear wire-spoked wheels add the perfect classic, retro touch to this stylish package.

Top Features

  • COMPACT CUSTOM: Light weight and a seat just 27 inches from the pavement make the V Star 250 a great first step into motorcycling, as well as a great choice for more experienced riders who appreciate the fun that comes in small packages.
  • BIG BIKE STYLE: Dual exhausts, plenty of quality chrome and Yamaha's unmatched attention to detail—this is one sharp little motorcycle.
  • STRONG BRAKES: Front disc brake provides highly controllable stopping power.
  • UNIQUE V-TWIN PERFORMANCE: The V Star 250 is the only V-twin in its class with a smooth, torquey, controllable power delivery that's fun for every rider.
