2006 Yamaha Virago
The motorcycle division of Yamaha was founded in 1955 and was
headed by Genichi Kawakami. Yamaha's initial product was a 125cc
(7.6 cu in) two-cycle, single cylinder motorcycle, the YA-1, which
was a copy of the German DKW RT 125. The YA-1 was a competitive
success at racing from the beginning, winning not only the 125cc
class in the Mt. Fuji Ascent, but also sweeping the podium with
first, second and third place in the All Japan Autobike Endurance
Road Race that same year. Early success in racing set the tone for
Yamaha, as competition in many varieties of motorcycle racing has
been a key endeavor of the company throughout its history, often
fueled by a strong rivalry with Honda and other Japanese
This Yamaha Virago 250 has the classic standard cruiser look
without the unmanageable power and torque that a new motorcyclist
doesn't need while learning the basics of riding. Out of all of the
standard style motorcycles I have to say that I really like the
look of the Virago the best. Not only is it small and nimble, but
it has a fair amount of chrome on it to satisfy most appetites.
Budget-wise it also sits in a nice sweet spot that makes it a bit
more expensive but with nice gear list that's worth the money.
Black with two tone silver striping covers the metal parts and
frame of this low mileage bike (a mere 315 actual miles!) Nice
forks, handlebars, drag bar, and twin exhaust show off the bling I
talked about in the intro. Virago badging is in sticker form, and
is all clean and pristine.
The 249 CC, SOHC, 60-degree V-twin engine provides enough power for
cruising around the streets and can even get you around on the
freeway. The bike is lightweight and that makes maneuvering at low
speeds incredibly easy. It is important to keep in mind that the
lack of motorcycle mass means the bike is so light weight that you
might get blown around on the freeway more than would be
comfortable. All the while you will get 70 MPG's!
Barely broken in, this super low mileage beginner bike is easy to
handle, does not have a lot of weight to throw around, and perfect
entry bike for the person who wants a nicer starter bike. Plenty of
extra chrome, and nice sound to the engine, and a very comfortable
ride will help you gain your confidence and enable you to move up
to something that can really take advantage of you!
