(1988 / Production Model)
Just before its official launch, a TDR250 prototype was entered into the Pharaohs Rally, a grueling desert race held in Egypt over 11 days and covering some 4,800 km. The bike took the win in the prototype class and just as the news broke, the production model went on sale. The TDR250 mounted the liquid-cooled, 2-stroke, parallel twin engine from the TZR250—known for its power and quick response—in a lightweight, high-rigidity double-cradle frame. This gave the bike light, agile handling and powerful acceleration on the asphalt and terrain-conquering performance when off-road. The TDR250 also featured a variable front brake.
