Additional photos of this Yamaha TDR250 are available here for your perusal.

Ultimate Dual“. That’s how Yamaha marketed the TDR250 – a unique descriptor for a unique bike.

The TDR combined a retuned TZR250 two-stroke motor good for nearly 50 horsepower in a dual-sport frame, making it unlike anything available in the US at the time (especially because Yamaha never officially sold it here).

As a bit of perspective on how ahead of its time this machine was, consider that this 30+ year-old bike makes 10 horsepower more than the recently-refreshed Kawasaki KLR, yet it weighs 120 pounds less! If that wasn’t good enough, check out this article on ADV Pulse for what else made the TDR special, including Yamaha’s assertion that the TDR’s engine was the first two-stroke motor to utilize both a CDI and an electronic advance system. Or check out this promotional video:

The TDR was offered in 50, 80, and 250cc versions.

This example is VIN: 2YK068500, Engine #: 1KT068500.

It is part of the collection of motorcycles we imported from South Africa. Unfortunately, we do not have any history on it.

The odometer shows 17,473 kilometers (10,857 miles).

In preparation for the listing, we had Olly rebuild the carbs, install Renthal grips, rebuild the rear brake caliper, re-spoke the rear wheel, give the bike a detail, and install new Pirelli Sport Demon tires.

Modifications:
JL exhaust.

Rear rack.

Pro Taper handlebar and pad.

Renthal grips, aftermarket levers.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
The decals are aftermarket replacements.

There are several minor scratches. Here’s a selection of the most obvious – all known cosmetic blemishes are shown in the photo album up top.

The sale includes one key.
