For years, the V-Star 250 has been touted as one of the finest entry bikes around.
And for good reason. With an authentic V-twin engine, the V-Star 250 will give you the grunt and growl that you don’t often find in the lightweight class. It’s also got a low 685mm (27″) seat height for added confidence, perfect for novice riders. For 2012, we’ve changed the handlebar design which in turn has improved rider comfort and styling too. One ride and you’ll see why so many entry riders have chosen this nimble, confidence-inspiring cruiser. Heavyweight styling. Lightweight packaging.
Plenty of torque, smooth roll-on power, lightweight and a seat just 27 inches from the pavement make the 2012 Yamaha V-Star 250 super-nimble and maneuverable, and the perfect Star to get STARted on.
The V Star 250 is the only V-twin in its class.
Estimated 78 mpg* means almost 200 miles between fill-ups.
