Yamaha XTZ 250 (2x) in Santiago for SALE!

Two adventure-ready bikes for sale in Chile (we’re flexible, as long as it’s not further North than Santiago).

We bought these bikes in the North of Colombia in November 2016 and drove them all the way South of Chile/Argentina. We would like to sell them to other travelers whom can drive them back to Colombia. It’s an advantage that the bikes are Colombian, because it’s much easier to sell them over there or in Ecuador for a good price (at least $2000). Do your research on the internet for secondhand Yamaha's in Colombia, and you'll see for yourself. Via this link (http://www.wemotobike.com/2017/02/09...soon-for-sale/) you can see pictures and read our blog on how we bought the bikes.

The bikes
Black Yamaha (year 2013) - around 55.000km in Santiago - $2500,00

Blue Yamaha (year 2015) - around 35.000km in Santiago - $2800,00

We think the bikes are doing great! The 250cc engines have enough power to drive on the highways comfortably. The bikes are doing best at dirt roads, where they are so light and easy to maneuver. Thanks to its fuel injection there is no need to adjust the carburetors when crossing the high Andes.

Condition of the bikes
Both bikes are in perfect condition, and very well-maintained. We’ve been to well-recognized mechanic stores for full check-up of the bikes:

- El Holandés Bogota in Colombia

- Morejon Motos Cuenca in Ecuador

- Macedo Racing/Around the Block in Peru

We’re sponsored by Motul, so we changed the oil every 2000km. The engines run perfectly!

When you're interested we can send you a list on what exactly has been changed/maintained when and where.

Included in the price

- Luggage racks ($100 dollar a unit) that will make it easy to bring and connect your own panniers to the bikes.

- Small tool-set with two tubes, clutch cable and spark plugs.

- We'll make sure the bikes are completely adventure ready. Fresh oil, clean filters etc.

- A short course on how to maintain the bikes properly(if needed).

- Of course our full support in making the paperwork of the bikes on your name.

The easiest way to communicate is via WhatsApp: 0031-628055158 or send us a message via de facebook page: Wemotobike. Otherwise use the contact-form on our website

now reduced in price

Hello everyone,

New asking price: $4500 usd for the two bikes.

The bikes are adventure ready and in great condition.

Pretty sure you can sell the bikes for more money in Colombia, so you only have to drive them back

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
