This bike is definately no speed machine, but it will get you there and back with no problems. I am very satisfied with the reliablility. It will pull wheelies in second gear, but you really have to crank the throttle. The speed is fine for me. Overall I love this... read more

This is a great bike for beginners to intermediate riders. My son loves it (5'9"; 150lbs) and it works for me. It has a low profile for woods and definitely NO SERIOUS JUMPING.

I have had this bike for about a year, and it has been a joy to ride. This bike has a lot of low end power, but not mid to high power.

I have had this bike for about a year, and it has been a joy to ride. This bike has a lot of low end power, but not mid to high power. I think for little kids starting out on this bike need to have a little experience. My bike can go around 80mph on pavement. The only two things I don't really like about my bike is that the suspension is way too soft, and parts are hard to find. Overall if you only ride on trails and fields at high speeds this is the bike for you. Take my advice don't jump it, you will be sorry. Now I am getting a KX250F or RMZ250 next, because the better suspension.

I have spent the last two weekends breaking in my new 225. I have never ridden a dirt bike before in my 33 yrs. I love it. I'm not yet comfortable on the MX tracks, but it is a blast on TCCRA trails.

The only bike I had ever ridden was an old Honda 90cc, and only for about an hour. I had wanted a TT-R125L for the longest time and went to buy a new one but the dealership wouldn't finance one to me. I saw a used TT-R225 sitting out front and ended up walking away with it.

The only bike I had ever ridden was an old Honda 90cc, and only for about an hour. I had wanted a TT-R125L for the longest time and went to buy a new one but the dealership wouldn't finance one to me. I saw a used TT-R225 sitting out front and ended up walking away with it. This bike is truly an awesome machine. Its plenty fast, and not too hard to ride. My first day out with it it had just finished raining and all the trails were mud. Considering it was my first time riding... I had only dumped the bike once or twice in the mud, in the 10 hours I rode that day! So it's fairly easy to ride for a midsized person. I would recommend this bike to any first time rider.

If you ride trails and stay off the mx track you will have a blast.

I've owned my 2002 TTR225 for about a year and have had zero maintenance issues. I've had it deep in water twice, once 1/3 up the fuel tank and the other to the bottom of the seat.

I've owned my 2002 TTR225 for about a year and have had zero maintenance issues. I've had it deep in water twice, once 1/3 up the fuel tank and the other to the bottom of the seat. She gets a little upset but keeps going. The bike will make small doubles ok (less than 10') but it does bottom out with me pretty regularly (6'2", 240lbs). For a non-aggresive rider this is a great bike, but you can outgrow it quickly. No better buy for the dollar.

I just bought a new TT-R225 after debating whether or not to purchase a CR250. Yes there is a big difference between the two bikes. I decided on the TT-R and took it for the first ride. For a 4 stroke it had a decent amount of power, handled small moguls resonably and on small jumps the landing was okay. Height is a little lower than I like but the next closest model is a CRF230 and dollar for dollar the TT-R is a better deal and much cheaper. I mainly ride 1-2 times a month trail riding with the family now so this bike is ideal. Maintenace is simple with less wear on a 4 stroke.
