Hi Guys, I'm new here.

Just wondering if anyone could help me out with something?

I'm looking for a nice 250 supermoto for when I have passed my full bike test, & was looking at the WR250X, (I currently ride an XT 125X)

I have one concern though, It is a very tall bike, Now I am 5ft 8 with a 30'' inside leg, Would my feet be able to touch the floor what so ever? Even it is only on one foot on my tip toes, And would it be a big struggle for me to ride?

Any replies would be grately appreciated,

Thanks,
Ben.

Just go to your local dealer mate and sit on one, you can always buy lowering kits aswell :thumbup: I'm 5'8" and I had no problems with the height when I sat on one

Keep in mind they have about an inch of adjustment to the standover height. That's without having to mess with the preload.

Thank you guys once again!

Would be interested to know though, How much taller it will be compared to my
XT 125X?

Trying to find a Yam dealer that have the WRX in stock, So I can have a sit on one.

Cheers, Think I will pop in Wigan Yamaha soon then,

Just found out that the WRX's seat height is only 1.3 inches bigger than my Xt 125, So hopefully the height shouldn't be a problem!

Managed to get a sit on one today, Height is good, Can just about tippy toe with both feet & can put one foot down flat, Riding position seems really good & comfy, Will Just have to get my full test passed now!

Cheers Guys for all your replies,

Much Appreciated,
Ben.
