Yamaha WR250F (2008 onwards)

The Yamaha WR250F is a lightweight dual-sport bike that is almost like a dirt bike with a headlight. The motorcycle is super-light and extremely easy to handle, which makes it one of the best options for new riders.

It has received an overwhelmingly positive feedback thanks of its simple design and versatility. The bike is both highly practical and extremely fun to ride. Its biggest rivals, the Honda CRF250L and Kawasaki KLX250 are both heavier and less powerful motorcycles, so the Yamaha WR250F is the best overall choice.

The bike comes with a fuel injected engine and fully adjustable suspension, which is not that common on a budget dual-sport bike. Other than that, the equipment is pretty basic. There is an old school digital dash and a narrow seat that is not very comfortable for longer rides.

Apart from the WR250F model, there is also a supermoto version of the bike available. Unfortunately, the the Yamaha WR250X supermoto has already been discontinued, so you won’t be able to buy it brand new.
