When it comes to Riding a Motorcycle in Mexico, we have to speak about the roads. In Mexico you will always find "Speed Bumbs" - called "Topes" and potholes are as well very common. This is the reason why we use HONDA, SUZUKI and BMW Dual Sport Bikes with a better suspension than a normal street bike or a Harley Davidson. Suspension is an important part of riding safe and comfortable on the different kind of streets in Mexico.
We have 2015 models
Honda Dualsport Bikes for our guided Tours and Rentals.
The HONDA XR 250 TORNADO is built specifically for the Latin American market. The air-cooled engine, provided with an additional oil cooler, has 25 hp. On the first sight, that does not sound like a lot of power. But the four-valve engine usually brings, thanks to only 134 kg/295 pounds dry weight of the bike, enough power to really have fun, even in the mountains. It does not require a huge and heavy 1200cc motorcycle to enjoy Mexico. The opposite is the case. Especially on small outlying gravel roads you will see the advantage of a lightweight dirt bike.
The motorcycles have a ground clearance of 281 mm and a spring travel of 245 mm front and 242 mm rear. The seat height can be varied by changing the suspension strut and fork.
