Yamaha XV250 Virago Overview
If you’re looking to purchase your first ever cruiser then the XV250 Virago could be the perfect starting point. Although it’s only a 250cc, you won’t feel like you’re missing out on any of the action.
Taking the true cruiser style with a low seat (685mm!!), high set bars and forward facing pegs, the XV250 Virago handles perfectly and it’s extremely comfortable too. There is enough room to carry a pillion however the seat isn’t very comfy so it’s not ideal for long journeys.
Not only is the machine mechanically sound, with an air-cooled V-Twin engine but also the build quality is well put together too, especially if you love a good mixture of chrome and paintwork – you’ll always need to give it a good polish though!
Although the bike was released back in 1995, it’s still a popular machine but it can be rare to find one in mint condition still.
