More Information about the Honda Tornado 250

The best lightweight adventure bike out there. Some state that this 250 doesn’t do ‘anything perfectly’ but, to us, they’re ideal because they manage to do everything really well. When you’re planning a motorcycle tour through such a diverse country of Colombia, a jack-of-all-trades-bike is precisely what you need. 

 

The Tornado was manufactured in Brazil and that makes it a very popular (and easy) bike to buy, rent, repair, and resell in Colombia. At just 134kg (dry), this is an easy bike to pick up and ideal for beginners who don’t want to overwhelm themselves with a hugely heavy (and hugely powerful) bike, intermediate riders who just want to ride a fun, user-friendly bike, and anyone on a tight budget.

 

There’s no denying that finding the right adventure motorcycle is all about compromise and we think the Tornado is what happens when you make the right choice. Forget about having the ‘best bike in the world’ and concentrate more on having a ton of FUN out there, on a reliable, light, fast little Tornado.

 

Here’s what the Tornado 250 offers:

 

  • User friendly and easy to ride – The lightness of the Tornado is one of the most enticing aspects and can’t be stressed enough. The bike is very lightweight and easy to maneuver. In the event that you do drop the bike, it’s easy to pick up and you won’t be at risk of getting hurt while standing it back up. The Tornado’s engine also sports a flat torque curve and lower horsepower than larger touring bikes. This makes it a lot easier to control in slippery conditions.

  • Easy to find and inexpensive – both bikes and spares – as mentioned above, the Tornado is insanely popular in South America and that can save you a lot of time, and money.

  • They’re (almost) indestructible – Of course, you can run your Tornado to the graveyard but, if you treat it with TLC, there’s no reason it can’t dish up over 150K km – and then some. 

  • Large tank – With almost 12L of fuel in a tank, you can churn out hundreds of km (over 300) on Colombian roads before you need to fill up. If you think you’d like to only fill up every 500km or so, then strap a fuel can to the back and off you go.

  • Basically a dirt bike with a comfy travel-friendly frame – Honda tries to fool you with the good looks of the bike, but the frame’s rear handles make packing for a trip a breeze. Make no mistake: this is an adventure bike that’s perfectly suited to long-distance touring. 

  • No fuel injection! – Picked up some dirty fuel? You can pop out the carburetor, give it a good clean, and be on the road again in an hour.

  • Great resale value – While we can’t guarantee you’ll make a profit from buying a Tornado, riding it for months, and reselling it, many riders do just that. Everyone loves these bikes so finding sellers and buyers is never an issue in South America.
