Slopes you couldn’t hope to stand on can be climbed and de­scended with such ease that you can stop half­way, bal­ance feet-up, then carry on. Steps that you’d strug­gle to jump up on your own feet be­come small bumps dis­patched with a ju­di­cious si­mul­ta­ne­ous tickle of throt­tle and clutch lever, and the front wheel danc­ing in the air is just the norm, not a moment of tran­sient amuse­ment. The ST250 a fan­tas­ti­cally flex­i­ble friend. Ut­ter novices can revel in its su­perb torque and easy de­liv­ery with­out ever feel­ing over­whelmed or threat­ened, while ex­pert level rid­ers can leap into the un­known us­ing its glut of power. If tough ter­rain is your thing, this is your tool.
