The HONDA XR 250 TORNADO is built specifically for the Latin American market. The air-cooled engine, provided with an additional oil cooler, has 25 hp. On the first sight, that does not sound like a lot of power. But the four-valve engine usually brings, thanks to only 134 kg dry weight of the bike, enough power to really have fun, even in the mountains. It does not require a huge and heavy 1200cc enduro motorcycle to enjoy Nicaragua. The opposite is the case. Especially on the small outlying gravel roads you will see the advantage of a lightweight dirt bike.
And high speeds beyond 100 km/h (65 mph) are usually taboo for us. One must constantly expect animals on the road, especially horses and cows. We want to travel and not race.
The motorcycles have a ground clearance of 281 mm and a spring travel of 245 mm front and 242 mm rear. The seat height can be varied by changing the suspension strut and fork. It varies from 880 mm to 840 mm. It can therefore also people ride with a height from 165 - 170 cm.
