I initially had a hard time appreciating the round headlight on the XT250 so I got a XT225. I’m very happy with my choice but I have to admit the round headlight has grown on me, and I wouldn’t have a problem buying a XT250 today. The older 80’s era XT250 is an icon from the Rambo movie. The designers of the modern XT250 must have taken their inspiration from the iconic 80’s era version. I have a greater appreciation now for the modern XT250 when I see its 80’s era roots.
