Honda XR series are designed to specialize in beaten tracks and winding mountainous roads. These series are a range of air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke off-road motorcycles that were designed in Japan but assembled everywhere in the world. Some later models were also manufactured with a few special features different from previously traditional specifications. For instance, the XR 650R and XRV 650R are water-cooled and the XRV 650R is a twin cylinder engine.

Some of the XR series were launched with two versions, R and L. With knobby off-road tires fitted, the R version motors were professional ones for off-road riding, but not always street legal. The L version models were dual sporty bikes, fitted with the indicators, lights, horn, tires and mirrors appropriate for public roads. A number of R version models had these as well.

YAMAHA is the second main player in motorbike manufacturing industry in Vietnam. YAMAHA is very popular for sport bikes with a strong engine, light weights and good quality. YAMAHA also introduce XTZ series that are specially designed for challenging roads conquer.

Dirtbike for motor tours ztx 125

From the 260mm of ground clearance, to the 180mm stroke front suspension, but it’s more than just measurements that set the bike apart. It’s integrity. The tires perform better because they’re bigger than the competition’s. And the bike uses the YBR125 engine with internal balancer for low vibration and noise. That makes Yamaha XTZ 125 a true dual-purpose bike, good for riding on cement, or off the road.

In 1996, the XR 250R, which is the mainstay of the XR range, was updated with a new 249 cc air-cooled four-stroke Radial Four Valve Combustion Chamber (RFVC) that generated 19 HP (14 kW) at 8100 rpm. Although it was relatively heavy and both front and rear suspension were quite simple, the XR 250R proved reliable and was successful as an entry-level off-road machine. The X250R was stopped its production in 2004.
