The Yamaha XT225, or known in some markets as the Yamaha Serow, was a dual-sport motorcycle produced by Yamaha from 1986 to 2007. The XT225 was preceded and superseded by the XT250. Power is supplied by a 223cc single-cylinder, air-cooled four-stroke engine featuring a SOHC and 2 valves.[1] The engine produces 15 kW of power and 19Nm of torque.[2] The XT225 has a reputation for being a lightweight dual-purpose motorcycle which is suited to many applications.[3][4]
