Custom YAMAHA SR 250 compilation

Podemos decir de la Yamaha SR 250 que ha sido la motocicleta más popular en España desde mediados de los 80 hasta hace unos pocos años. Veamos cómo la hemos transformado.

One could say that the SR 250 Yamaha has been the most popular motorcycle in Spain since the mid eighties until a few years ago. Let´s see how it has been customized.

En otros países europeos han disfrutado de motocicletas japonesas de baja y media cilindrada desde que los nipones decidieron conquistar occidente en los años 60 con las gamas CB, CG y XL de Honda, las XT, SR grandes de Yamaha, las KL de Kawasaki…todas estas maravillas nos las hemos perdido en España por culpa de políticas proteccionistas de los oscuros años del franquismo.

El que no ha tenido una SR (aquí no necesitamos especificar la cilindrada), conoce a alguien que la tiene. Siendo una moto robusta, fácil y, dentro de lo que cabe, barata, ha tenido un enorme éxito entre pilotos noveles y mensajeros/repartidores. No se le conoce rival directo en España (aunque la Suzuki GN 250 se le ha acercado bastante, ya hablaremos de ella). Por todo esto, existe un gran mercado de segunda mano del modelo y también un buen número de preparaciones en toda la gama de estilos. Hasta tuvo su propio concurso de customización: La Metamorfosis Masiva.

Estos son algunos de los trabajos más destacables, a nuestro entender:

In other european countries they have enjoyed small and medium displacement motorcycles from Japan since they decided to conquer the west in the 60’s with series such as CB, CG and XL from Honda, XT and big SR from Yamaha, KL from Kawasaki, GT from Suzuki…We missed all these wonders in Spain because of import ban in the dark and sinister years of Franco.

If you have not owned a SR (no displacement specification needed here), you sure know someone who owns one. Being an easy, reliable and relatively cheap bike, it soon became a best seller among newcomers and couriers. There is no known rival in Spain, except maybe the GN 250 from Suzuki – we will talk about her later on. This is why there is a huge second hand market for this model, as well as a lot of customizations in each and every style. She even was the motto of her own customization contest: Metamorfosis Masiva.

These are some of the most remarkable examples in our opinion:
