Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Built as a lightweight and approachable offroad machine, the Yamaha DT175 was first brought to market in 1974. At the heart of this trail bike is a 171cc, air-cooled, two-stroke engine, good for 16 horsepower and roughyl 14 ft-lb of torque. The reed valve induction system ensures efficient fuel-air mixture intake, while the Autolube oil injection system eliminates the need for pre-mixing fuel and oil, simplifying maintenance.

The high-tensile steel frame allowed the DT to chew through rough and rugged terrain, while suspension with over 6″ of travel and the proprietary Yamaha monoshock design helped the compact enduro navigate any environment. The DT had features not often seen in off-road biased motorcycles, such as a comfortable and wide seat, a 2.5 gallon tank, and a headlight, which most dirt-faring vehicles did not have. Whether navigating challenging trails or commuting through rougher terrain, the DT 175 has long remained a staple in countries outside of the US, even past the manufacturing date, making parts availability quite plentiful.

Manufactured in December of 1980, this example is VIN: JYA3J1003BA066230. The seller purchased this example from the original owner in Minnesota one year ago.

The odometer shows 3,764 miles. The seller has put roughly 300 miles on this example during their ownership.
