1970 Yamaha DS 250


Specifications


Description

 

Yamaha laid the foundation for this success in the course of the 60s with the continuous development of its DS series.

With the DS 6 and at the latest with the 1970-1972 produced Yamaha DS7 was already clear, where the journey would go in the 250cc class.

In developing the engines, Yamaha has benefited from its vast experience in racing, which has been relentlessly emphasised in road vehicle advertising. Fans of the brand know that the highly successful DS 7 construction served as the basis of the then unbeatable TZ racing machine, and road and racing engines ran almost simultaneously from the same production line.

ABOUT THIS BIKE

  • This bike is in very good condition and the air-cooled Yamaha two-stroke engine impressed not only with exemplary economy, but also with great reliability and balanced driving characteristics.
  • Like its successor, the Yamaha RD 250 , the DS7 is one of the most popular models on the market for old two-stroke engines.
  • The rugged engine and attractive, understated design are still as appealing today as they were over 40 years ago.
  • 250cc twin two-stroke that makes nearly 30 hp @ 7,500 rpm.
  • Top speed 93 mph. 12v battery ignition.
  • Runs and drives very well.

Be quick on this one, Yamaha DS7's are getting hard to find in this condition, so it won't be here long at this price.

The 1960s saw a revolution in the world of motorcycles, with Japan paving the way for some beautiful machines that still remain favorites among enthusiasts. There has been a lot of argument on the technical performance of these Japanese motorcycles, but one thing is agreed upon by every lover of the ride; these bikes touch souls.

This revolution was important as it came as a big hit to British and American manufacturers who refused to change their ancient ways.

Will be sold WOF’d and Registered.
