The Honda VTR 250 is a motorcycle produced by Japanese company Honda for mid-range and entry level riders. The VTR 250 is essentially the smallest of Honda's Interceptor line of motorcycles. It is often seen as being an ideal first bike and is widely sold in the Asia Pacific but is more difficult to obtain in European countries and North America.
The VTR 250 was sold in the United States from 1988 to 1990, with only moderate changes occurring over the three model years. The engine was a 249cc 4-stroke liquid-cooled DOHC V-twin with a 6-speed transmission.
It is often seen as the learner alternative to the popular Ducati Monster, with a mimic Trellis frame and initially a a similar instrument layout, with no tachometer. A tachometer is featured on 2003-present models.
