Like previous models, the 2011 Yamaha XT250 is one of the lightest and most compact in its class. It has a generous 2.4-gallon fuel tank and a reported fuel economy of 73 mpg. As far as its exterior goes, it might not be the most visually innovative bike on the road, but then again, it's not really designed to be. The 2011 Yamaha XT has rugged, wide fenders; a long, thick seat; a handsomely styled fuel tank; dual lollipop mirrors; and an endure-style round headlight. Available in Yamaha white with red and black detailing, the XT is a good-looking bike that outperforms just about every one of its competitors in price and function.
