This 250 was only sold in the U.S. one year. Yamaha was trying to capture some of the 250 market that Kawasaki and Honda had. This was by far the sportiest 250 around! It had a café style fairing and seat, and a disc brake in the front and a drum in the rear. It had a cowl below the engine and a seat cowl; its engine had a six-speed transmission. This unit is remarkably complete with all the correct cowling and seats. Very difficult to find in its original livery. 3,594 miles indicated.
