For those who love to ride out in the countryside on weekends and hit the mountain trails, you’d need a reliable and durable trail bike. That is exactly what the XT 600 is. It features a 4 valve air-cooled engine that is ideal for trail biking and offers an unmatched all-round performance. While it does not really offer any frills or style, it certainly is an unpretentious and straightforward performance driven bike.
This bike has a simple and straightforward engine, with no liquid cooling or fuel injection like other bikes. Limited to 90mph, it is first and foremost an off road bike. This is evident with features like a narrow seat, soft suspensions, dirt track tyres and so on. However, it does handle well when driven around the city too.
We have to admit the bike does not feature as a style icon, but it is totally reliable and durable. Another plus for the bike is that there is nothing to speak of in terms of mechanical issues, with the engine running like clockwork and smoothly through the gears.
In terms of equipment, the bike lives up to its off-road reputation with just a single speedometer and a handful of lights. The switch gear is also plain and basic overall.
