  2. Hi merkamouse, is this a DOHC 4 valve engine? I've never seen one before, only the SOHC 2 valve version. How does it perform?
     
  3. I've googled both bikes and it looks like the Tornado has a somewhat detuned engine. I know one can't judge a bike just by looking at numbers, but here they are anyways:
    XR250L: 28hp @ 8000 rpm; 25 Nm @ 7000 rpm
    Tornado: 23.3 hp @7500 rpm; 23.75 Nm @ 6000 rpm.
    Compression is the same at 9.3:1.
     
  4. Hi
    The Tornado was made for the South America market, if you look you will see it has drum brake rear, should be a good bike.
     
  5. Hi KZ, yes it's a twin cam, 4 valve, they run great, very nice clean 250.
