California Scooter Co. announced a new dual sport called the CSC TT250, and an astoundingly low introductory price of just $1,895. Yes, that’s right, you can get the TT250 for less than half the price of a similarly-specced Yamaha XT250 or Suzuki DR200S. Of course, that’s just an introductory price that will only be available for a limited time. After that, the price jumps to a still pretty affordable $2,495 price.
But what exactly does $1,895 get you?
The TT250 is powered by a 229.9cc air-cooled, carbureted two-valve counterbalanced Single claiming 16.1 hp at 7000 rpm and 13.5 lb-ft at 5500 rpm. The engine is paired to a five-speed transmission, and a single undertail exhaust. CSC is still working on getting it certified with the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board, but once the certification is complete, the TT250 will be 50-state legal. CSC claims a top speed of about 74 mph.
The engine is mounted to a tubular steel frame. The fork is non-adjustable, but it is an inverted unit offering 6.2 inches of travel. The rear shock is preload adjustable and offers 6.5 inches of travel. The 21-inch wire-spoke front wheel sports a 3.00×21 knobby tire while the 18-inch rear wheel is dressed in a 4.60×18 tire. The TT250 comes with braided stainless steel brake lines which actuate the front and rear dual-piston brake calipers.
Other specifications include both electric and kick start, handlebar-mounted accessory switches and underseat outlets, a34-inch seat height, a 2.9-gallon fuel tank and a claimed 309-pound weight. CSC will offer three color options: white with an orange logo, black with a silver logo or red with a silver logo.
