Dirt bikes are light and have big power-to-weight ratios, so just twisting the throttle on one and shooting down a dirt road is a major rush. Fuel conversion chart here.By comparison my CRF managed 86.7 with a best of 98.5 (about the same as carb’d XR250 Tornados). Wheels are a 21in front which takes a 80/100-21 and 120/80-18in rear and are of course spoked, taking tubes. Rear brake is strong enough for the bike. With that in mind, you will need to adjust the brake and shift position if you’re using a set of full on off-road boots. That all combines into a package which weighs in at a light 134kg wet with the smaller stock tank (7.6L) and helps make this particular model a more hard-nosed dual-sport/adventure option for those after a super capable off-roader. Having spent a weekend on the WR250R pushing my own limits, I couldn’t have asked for a better motorcycle, and where I was originally looking at the price a bit warily, I’m now totally on board with how good the value of this little machine is. I’m pretty sure a WR450R could be that bike, but Yamaha won’t be making those before the Chinese get there first.You know what, for normal overland travels rather than gnarly, hardcore off-road exploring (not the sort of riding I do) I think I’d almost settle for a latest CRF250L (a couple more horsepowers) with some decent suspension. Off-road riding is fun, exciting, challenging and helps build skills you can use on the street, but since the bike can only be ridden off-road in designated areas, first you have to get it there. Our long termer is also fitted with the larger capacity Safari tank, a matching fairing, Scraggs rear rack and Barkbusters to make for an even more highly capable off-roader, with custom stickers adding to the overall look. iirc.So you can safely rely on 25kpl from the WR which, x 17 litres is an impressive, butt-numbing 425 clicks guaranteed, or more like 500.But, as I ask here: is a small bike really more economical? Where the WR250F is the competition version, the WR250R is a road registerable option, which means it’s suitable as an everyday ride, although it’s worth keeping in mind that the tall seat height could be a challenge for shorter riders. Adventure bikes are all the rage these days and can handle some off-road riding, but they’re expensive and most of us don’t have the skills to pilot a 500-plus-pound behemoth down much more than a dirt fire road. The WR250R retains a high level of overall specification though with fully adjustable suspension at both ends, an aluminium frame, and a surprisingly high performance power plant. ComfortFor me the WR was not comfortable when sat on the road at a steady speed. Average was 83mpg (29.5kpl). Today convenience and cost are more important than speed and ultimate capability, which makes a bike like the WR250R dual-sport the obvious choice. I was using the original pump and didn’t bring my spare (left) which helped make life interesting. It was all about the riding, and après riding, so all of the effort and time involved just getting there went unnoticed. As an outsider the world of off-roading can be quite the mystery, but the WR250R is a great place to start looking, and is powered by a low maintenance DOHC single-cylinder with electric start, EFI engine with a six-speed gearbox. If your off-road forays are not too far away—or even if they are and you’re OK taking frequent breaks along the way—a good alternative to truck ownership or big ADV machines is a light single-cylinder dual-sport bike. A six-speed gearbox offers plenty of flexibility, with fuel injection and electric start standard features. When the can swells, open with your scout knife and eat it out of the can. 2021 SWM RS 300R & RS 500R updated enduro models unveiled.

The clutch is light and the gearbox offers smooth upshifts, with ratios that offer good torque down low but are still suited to higher speeds. The narrow seat also makes it easy to shift off the side of the bike for an easier reach to the ground, while low speed stability is great.
