The Yamaha YBR250 is a lightweight beginner bike that is very affordable to buy and super-easy to handle. It is an ideal bike for everyday commuting or just learning how to ride.

The only negative of the Yamaha YBR250 motorcycle is the lack of equipment. The engine is air-cooled, suspension non-adjustable and there are no fancy details on the bike.
