Motorcycle News (UK) - - Road Test -

Light­weight, ver­sa­tile and smooth, it’s the ul­ti­mate easy­go­ing off-roader.

The baby of our group, the XT250 of­fers use­able power, a low seat height (810mm) and is the light­est of the four bikes. The Serow is the per­fect sin­gle for learn­ing to ride off-road, green lanes and trails be­cause it’s in­cred­i­bly easy to ride, smooth and com­fort­able.

Pump­ing out 21bhp, it’s the least pow­er­ful of the bunch, but that’s per­fect for the rough stuff as you’ll al­ways feel in con­trol and never in­tim­i­dated. Yamaha’s Serow trail bike has never been a fa­mil­iar name in Bri­tain as it’s only ever been avail­able as an un­of­fi­cial im­port. But don’t let that put you off, it’s the best of the bunch for get­ting into off-road­ing, or even just hav­ing a laugh with your mates on week­end rough stuff. Sure, it runs out of puff on the road.
