Yamaha XT 225 Serow Review
Yamaha XT 225 Serow is widely known for being a rider friendly and easy to control dual sport machine. It is perfect for beginners and those who want to explore trail adventures. However we shouldn’t forget that this bike is also intended for street rides. After completing one short lap in a dirt track, we immediately noticed the bike’s power and capabilities. It gives plenty of power enough for high thrilling action. Jumping over small man-made bumps and rocks felt very fulfilling, thanks to the bike’s soft suspension that bottomed frequently under critical situations. Next, we took it on the highway. The Serow run with ease, it handles and grabs pretty fine. However we found its power more suitable on the dirt road. With sharp shifting, the bike can still reach more than 65 mph. Lastly, we rode on the urban street to see if its suited for short distance commuting. It did a good job, soaking the road potholes and squeezing out of the traffic without problems. Fair seat height, lightweight and agility are among its good attributes. Overall, the Serow is an excellent bike for beginners but may not be good for experienced riders.
