1989 Honda 'Spada' VT250L

Average User Rating:
  • This is my first motorcycle which I've had since March 2015. When i bought it off eBay it didn't start (which was the starter clutch). My first proper ride was during May at the Saturday practice session, 2 days after the bike had been registered and 1 day after i got my licence. Its not ideal for highways as it holds 9k rpm at 100km/h.

    It may not be the fastest or newest bike out there, but it's mine and I love it.

  • Bought the bike with an aftermarket exhaust. Had to replace the rear shock with a VTR250 shock as the old one had leaked.
