The X-City 250 responds exactly when you want it to. The liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, 4-stroke engine turns high torque into action from very low engine speeds. It’s immediately responsive throughout the rev range, offers low fuel consumption, and is also extremely efficient, with very low emissions.

Protective front bodywork and adjustable windscreen

The X-City 250 doesn’t compromise when it comes to battling the elements. A height-adjustable windshield deals with wind and rain, letting you enjoy your journey. Combined with protective bodywork, it ensures you’ll always arrive looking as smart as when you left home.

High wheels for controlled handling

Big 16inch front and 15inch rear wheels mean that the X-City 250 always provides a smooth, comfortable ride. With superb traction – allied to a low seat position, responsive suspension and large disc brakes – the X-City 250 is marked by stable, agile performance and great manoeuvrability, no matter what the streets throw at you.

Powerful disc brakes

Large, powerful 270mm front and 240mm rear disc brakes bring you to a controlled stop. And a responsive, motorycle-style telescopic fork front suspension, backed up by a rear unit swing, soaks up every bump in the road, ensuring that you ride in maximum comfort.

Easy-access seat

With its ergonomically shaped seat, the X-City 250 is always a pleasure to ride: both you and a passenger travel in comfort. While the seat’s low height makes it easy to get your feet on the ground – ideal for stop-start journeys in traffic – it also means a more stable riding position. Which makes the scooter easier to manoeuvere.

Practical touches

The underseat storage provides the kind of space you need for stowing a jet helmet, important documents, or a business bag. Up front, the lockable glovebox is as spacious as it is stylish. And while the sleek instrument panel keeps you informed, the piercing dual headlights and rear lights let you ride with confidence – day or night.
