This bike is like a beloved member of the family, but like family members, sometimes you need to let them go. Doesn't mean you love them any less.

I've owned this bike since about 2008, when I bought it from the original owner (who had put only about 200 miles on it and garaged it all the time). It has likewise always been garaged by me, and as you can see, I've added only 3300 miles (about 90% of which was on the street).

This classic 2001 dual sport Yamaha XT225 motorcycle is in excellent shape. Only 3512 miles. Always fires right up with a push of a button, runs great, super fast and peppy. I've always kept the battery on trickle when it's not going to be ridden for more than a few weeks. The current battery is 2 years old, again always left on tender. Last oil change/tune-up was summer 2023, and the summer before that ('22), I had the fuel system cleaned out. (I use ethanol-free gas ever since that cleaning.) I have always completed regular oil/filter changes, etc.

All original parts. Fully street legal/stock. New tires about 3 years ago. No tears in seat. Minor/usual scratches, scuffs, wear, etc. for a bike of this age. But no rust. I have the original 2001 owner's manual, and two ignition keys. I will also throw in the Nelson-Rigg cover (pictured), which is fits this bike specifically, and is also in excellent shape. I can also throw in my back-up/passenger helmet (white, full-face HJC in Medium, with a clean face shield). Also the battery tender. That's some good extras.

I also have on offer (for sale) a hitch-mounted aluminum motorcycle carrier for this bike (or any other, up to 400 pounds), which I purchased new in 2022 and have used only once to transport this bike about 1200 miles on the rear of my truck. Here is a link to a product very similar to my carrier, which is also made by Black Widow, and includes crank straps and the attached loading ramp, if you are interested (I paid $360 at the time for all of the above, and I will sell it for $150 on top of the price of the bike):

*If this Ad is up, then YES, this bike is "still available!" Which means I won't respond to messages that ask, "Is this bike still available?" Soon as we start emailing, and you seem serious and like a real living person, then we can start corresponding by text and/or phone. I can also give you the VIN number at that time. Clean NY title in my name. No trades. Sale is AS-IS.

To test ride, you must come with cash in hand, and have a motorcycle-qualified drivers license. You will need to leave me both the cash and your license (and wear a helmet) to take it for a spin.

Thanks for looking, and ride safe.
