Yamaha 250 concept ADV

It's only a concept vehicle right now. I'd sure consider one.

It's not a hand pump, it's a cock enlarger for the guys who would never consider riding something this small in CC's

I like the concept, but that thing looks ree-fucking-diculous.

Evidently Yamaha is using a similar approach to Honda in developing one engine to be used in a variety of platforms.



They have developed this to compete against the CBR250 and Ninja 250.

Looks cool. But then I think the TW200 looks cool!

I just showed this bike to my girl and her eyes lit up. So far this is the most excited she has ever been regarding a bike. She also likes the XT250......She seems to like the retro styles Yamahas.

I'm sorry but that's gotta be one of the ugliest bikes I've seen in a while. I'd only take the headlights from it. Haha
