Yamaha DT-1 250 Specification

Yamaha DT-1 250


History Of Yamaha DT

In the past, it is common for early motorcyclists to use their machines during the week to communicate and work, then use the same bikes over the weekend for racing (e.g. riding events such as scrambles or experiments). A typical example of a previous pair of bikes, slightly faster than Yamaha, is the Triumph Mountain Cub, available in 1964.

But it's Yamaha that changed the world of the masses to create a two-purpose motorcycle, the Yamaha  DT-1 250 sold in incredible numbers - 50,000 units a year are fantastic! Yamaha, along with its U.S. distribution center, saw an introduction to the market and made an engine that was not only perfect, the timing of its launch was also perfect.

DT's buyer (code called YX047) was found by a motorcycle that was actually a dual sports bike. You can ride a bike that can be hidden in the streets and back of the forest with abandonment. Simple design and specifications are certainly with a reliable machine.

Over the years (a model made from 1967/8 to DT1 in 1979, DT250F), the Yamaha DT 250 is largely fixed during production, which in many ways reflects the MX trend; earlier this year, Yamaha kited for drivers on a road called GYT (a true Yamaha tail kit).

In 1972/3, a tired system was ordered to pass the cylinder head to the left before returning the frame to exit the right. The front fender (current plastic) is installed under the MX style of three brackets. Retail suspensions have also been adjusted to include more moisture in remote reservoirs.

In 1976, DT received several changes to the banknotes in the form of fuel tanks and completed changes to the cranks that became flat black, but in 1977 saw the biggest change during the DT in 1977 when the new complete model was introduced: the DT250.

Duplex style frames are used in new models, but the biggest change of older models is the combination of the famous Yamaha shock suspension. The weight is trimmed from the bike using aluminum edges. The upgraded fuel tank resembles the previous bike in the liquid conical phase (certainly reflecting the MX approach, where sloping tanks usually move up the inclined tank to increase weight in front of the bike).

The new unit weighs only 260 pounds (118 kg), combined with a reliable 21 hp engine and a five-speed gearbox, giving Yamaha the right-to-weight ratio.
