The Yamaha Virago 250 is a v2, four-stroke custom / cruiser motorcycle produced between 2005 and 2007.


The engine was a air cooled v2, four-stroke. A 49.0 x 66.0 mm (1.9 x 2.6 inches) stroke result in a displacement of just 249.00 ccm (15.19 cubic inches). The engine features a 10.0:1 compression ratio. Fuel was supplied via a single overhead cams (sohc).

Yamaha Virago for sure....could be any engine size from 250 to 1100.. Most likely looks like the American spec 800cc http://baixaki.ig.com.br/imagens/wpapers/BXK16128_yamaha_virago800.jpg

Hello Delboy, It is a Virago, but I think you are mistaken on the engine size. Here in the states, the Virago came as: 250cc (still in production), 535, 700 (from late 1984-1986 because Harley Davidson had U.S. congress place large tariffs on Japanese bikes with 700-800cc which threatened to compete with domestic bikes) 920 (early 1980's model, did not resemble Virago's to follow), 750cc from late 1986 until late 1998 when they ended production of the Virago (except 250) and began to produce the V-Star, 1000cc-1984 until it was bored to 1100cc at which time I'm not sure. The Virago in this picture is a 250cc. The handlebars are taller on the 250 than on the 535 (to compensate for the low height of the forks/gas tank) and the exhaust pipes are straight-the next closest size-the 535cc- has slash-cut pipes that have an upward shot, making it easier for passengers to burn their legs. I've spent 20 years riding and tinkering with the U.S. issue Virago model. Currently there are three Virago 1100's, one 700, and one 750 in the garage. Happy riding.
