Sherco 250i

Has anybody see one yet or been on one?

There's been a couple of magazine reviews here, they say that they're not too bad, suspension needs a bit of work, but that's nothing too unexpected. Though if you don't like the stock Sachs/Ceriani combo, you can option up to Ohlins front and rear. I was seriously considering the 450 (people with the 450 love them), but have decided on a TM instead.

I posted this on our Australian site,


VERY NICE, well finished as usual, sounds very crisp & smooth,Engine is very quite & a great note from the pipe, stand sux bat (looks good but bad length etc - like a husky) Very very tidy engine bay, compact / spacious & well sorted & ergo layout is great, switches, levers & mounts scream quality & are compact & clean everything just looks finished with quality in mind. Dash has remote switch on LH bar, Map swith is on the RH bar.

Hubs/wheels/sprockets etc look sensational. Again compact & high quality finish

They look soooo much sweeter in person than they do in any mags or net ads.

The only thing that stood out a bit was the rear master cylinder placement & stand, the seat seems a bit wider than expected in the middle but is very flat to the tank & easy to move up on, it was almost as tall as the Husky (although specs will show it as much lower)it looks low, feels small & spacious but is actually taller than my BETA & about the same as my 08 450 Husky, i was on tip toes (6ft & 100kgs) The new colour scheme & finish of the plastics Overall what a great bike

At RRP of 13K + the euro has affected the prices a fair bit, no more factory bash plate etc, Ohlins option is $$$$, but depending on the dealer expect 12900 on road. Very Reasonable considering the overall quality

Have ridden the 250 back to back against the 450 on a mX track and single track bush.The 2.5 was exceptionaly easy to throw around and felt more than the claimed 10 kg lighter than the 4.5, they both give you excellent confidence as i found you can move so far forward with the new tank\seat setup.I weigh 85kg and found the suspension well suited except for flat landings off drop offs, the 2.5 power fells stronger than a KTM250exc and was strong all through rev range and didn't flatten out, couldn't notice the dual curve but did on the 4.5.Any how if was going to race offroad events go the 2.5, or general trial fun riding go the 4.5.Thats my thoughts anyhow.

I weigh 85kg and found the suspension well suited except for flat landings off drop offs, ...

This is the basic problem with USD forks. RSU have no such problem. USD forks triumph of marketing over engineering, IMO :p

      Howdy Everyone

      Today I am looking to sell my 2004 suzuki bandit 1200s for 2200 OBO. I have owned this for over 3 years and it was my daily the whole time. Yes, every day rain or shine. It never let me down and has been the best to me. I love it to death, but now that I have graduated with a big boy job that involves lots of travel. It is time to move on to something newer and more economical. It has loads of mods and general maintance parts to help it have a great life with me and continue on with it's next owner. Current real mileage is around 30k and the title is clear in MY NAME. 

      Videos of start up and just it idling]
      It was well maintained. 
      Valve adjustments done early (will include special adjustment tool with sale)
      Holshot Stage 1 jet kit
      Holshot Ignition Advance
      Holshot Slip on
      New chain and sprockets
      New Spark plug
      New airfilter
      Renthal Handle Bar
      Shorty Levers
      Upgraded windscreen (great for long trips)
      Suspension Adjusted and dialed in properly
      Price is flexible 
      Mileage is exempt (the speed sensor was broken when I first got it so it didn't record mileage until recently. Everything is now working properly)
      Has been down before (damage shown in pictures)
      Some other cosmetic issues from being used every day (general chips from rocks and small stuff you can't see in pictures)
      Windshield vibrates due to height 
      Exhaust rattles a bit (will include new muffler mount bushing to fix this) 
      I'm sure I'm missing plenty of stuff but this should be a great start on what this vehicle has to offer. If you have any other questions or would like more pictures, videos, details on anything please let me know. I'll be happy to work with you.
      At this time I am only looking at cash offers for the bike. No payments, sorry. Also I must note that no joyrides either. You bring the cash in full and I will let you test drive. You hold the title, I hold the cash. You drop it no harm done, because you keep the bike and I keep the cash. 
      At the time of sale you and I will sign the title and we will fill out the proper paperwork for the transfer of the vehicle on the spot. Sorry, but I Have been burned in the past. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy what you see.
      The best way to contact me is by phone. I'm not on this forum much, but feel free to text or call away and I would be glad to respond to any questions you might have. Thanks,
