Yamaha XV250S

I really like the look of this bike, and what I've read about it:
http://www.motorcyclenews.com/MCN/bikereviews/searchresults/Bike-Reviews/Yamaha/Yamaha-XV250S-Virago--1995--2001-/

I haven't handled one yet.

I'm trying to find out whether it's got a fuel injected engine - or old style choke system.  Does anyone know please?

Thanks :sunglasses:

Yamaha Virago XV 250

Hi Traylerm8

If you're looking at a 1995-2001 model ? it have a single carb with a conventional pull choke.

That's a shame. Which bike then?

Hi kcmc

Yes I thought due to the age of the model it may be a choke system rather than fuel injection.  That's a shame, I prefer fuel injected bikes.  Less to remember and think about e.g. make sure you make the bike warm up on a cold day , don't ride with the choke out... Far easier to get a fuel injected bike.

Do you know of any modern bikes then please with a similar spec, but fuel injected of course?  The thing that attracted me to the Virago XV250 is mainly it's low seat height.  This is very important to me being only 5ft1inches tall. I loved it when I saw it because I used to ride a Yamaha SR 2003 version as well (loved it apart from the choke lol), so the look of the Vigaro was very similar and pedal and gear lever the same type.

Being a 250cc also good for now , as I've only ever ridden 125cc s so far.

 

Thanks from traylerm8
