>CSC isn’t a household name here in the U.S.— at least not yet—but we recently got a chance to check out the TT250, the lowest-priced dual-sport model
in CSC’s lineup. You’d have to turn the clock back to
1983 to find a bike at this price point. For $2195, you get
a carbureted 250cc four-stroke with a five-speed gearbox
producing 16 horsepower and weighing 300 pounds.
In the suspension department, you get an inverted fork
with 6. 2 inches of travel and rebound adjustment, while
the rear offers 6. 5 inches with adjustable preload and
rebound damping. It includes a handlebar switch with two
settings that control accessory plugs under the seat. LED
turn signals and brake/taillights are nice features usually
reserved for more expensive motorcycles. The mild steel
handlebars have a comfortable bend that should work for
any size rider. Disc brakes with steel-braided hydraulic lines
are another plus not usually found on lower-priced models.
