I’m Bruce – avid motorcycle explorer (originally from South Africa) and have owned 5 Honda XR250 Tornados. I currently own a 2022 model.

When I first got my hands on a? XR250 Tornado, I was so frustrated trying to find info on the bike in English. You’ve probably felt the same way. Then, I discovered how hard it was to find spares outside Latin America. Geez!

I live on an island (the Dominican Republic), so spares here are like water in the Sahara desert.

Along the way, I’ve spent countless hours scouring the net for everything I needed to maintain, mod, and understand my Tornado. I learned a lot and decided to share it here to save you all the hair I’ve lost looking for XR250 Tornado related stuff.

I want this site to be collaborative – a place for all of us Tornado owners to share info, so if you have something you’d like to contribute, please let me know using the contact form and I’ll add it to the site. If you’re super knowledgeable and would like to become an editor of this site, please let me know and I’ll make it happen.

  1. Hey there Bruce!
    i just bought a 2015 XR250 tornado which is extremely rare here.
    actually about a hundred or two were imported for police and then just a few were licensed and sold to regular individuals,
    so it’s hard to find parts and info here in iran.
    Searching the net i came across your website, gotta admit you’ve done a great work gathering info about this bike. just wanted to thank you for your hard work and sharing. i’m reading all from A to Z. appreciate it buddy.
    hope you guys be always traveling and enjoying life.

    regards from Iran,
