Yamaha Tricker 250


BM Travel Adventure has been a home gathering of leading experts in motorbike tourism in Indochina

Yamaha Tricker 250cc

Bike manufacturers face a problem: more young people must get into bikes. So Yamaha researched and found those potential young riders like wheelies and customizing. Their response? Develop a cheap, light bike that’s good for stunts and can be customized. The result is the Tricker. It went on sale in Japan last year, and now it’s available elsewhere – though later in Britain.

Power of tricker 250 cc comes from an air-cooled, 249cc single-cylinder engine making a modest 19bhp at 7500rpm. With 35mm forks, single discs front and rear, and narrow wire-spoked wheels, the spec sounds like a dull commuter bike, but the Tricker differs in its style. The bars are vast, the diagonally mounted tank is tiny, and the skinny seat and wheels add to the look of a bike at home in the local skate park or the high street.

The Tricker’s built for city streets, though, so Yamaha held its launch in Amsterdam. The little air-cooled single motor might not make much power, but it’s effortless to use, with enough low- and mid-range torque for effortless riding no matter your level of experience. A balancer shaft meant the motor was also very smooth. The Tricker zipped up to 65mph quickly enough on the dual-carriageway leading from Yamaha’s HQ, sounding thrashy but keeping up with the heavy traffic. However, the firm seat became uncomfortable after just half an hour.

Yamaha Tricker 250 Review

Once into the city, the Yam was in its element, flicking through traffic, dodging past bicycles, and giving a good view thanks to its tall riding position and excellent mirrors. Despite being quite broad, the Tricker was supremely maneuverable. The suspension was on the soft side, which was helpful when nipping up curbs or going over potholes, and not a problem the rest of the time.

Ironically the thing the Tricker wasn’t so good at was tricks. The engine doesn’t have enough torque to wheelie, just with a throttle twist, so it needs help with some revs and a dab of the clutch. And the tiny single 220mm front disc isn’t powerful enough for stoppies. Despite its name and look, the Tricker is more suited to short-range urban commuting, where its tiny six-liter tank and the skinny seat won’t be a severe drawback.
