Since the craze for dirt bikes has been increasing rapidly in Nepal these days, many known and unknown two-wheeler brands have brought their product to Nepal, due to which there are various options for the buyers to choose from.

Crossfire is one of them that has a separate fan base here in Nepal. Known for its loud and aggressive nature, Crossfire got the attention of many riders and dirt bike lovers in no time. It has launched different models of bikes in Nepal which are growing popular because of their budget-friendliness.

Crossfire Tracker 250 is the latest addition to the Crossfire family. The authorised distributor of Crossfire in Nepal, Classic Wheels Export & Import, has brought the new model in Nepal now.

On the front, it gets a circular halogen headlamp with a high-mounted mudguard whereas it has a slim body at the side and has sporty graphics and a halogen taillamp with sleek and edgy LED indicators. It also has a high-mounted stainless steel exhaust and comes with an analogue instrument cluster with a functioning gear-position indicator, a blacked-out engine, and golden-coloured forks.

Performance

The Crossfire Tracker 250 is powered by a 249.5cc, single-cylinder, four-stroke, air-cooled, carburettor engine. It can generate a max power of 12.5Kw at 7000rpm and a max torque of 18.5Nm at 5500rpm. It has a five-speed gearbox with a 7.5-litre fuel tank. These powertrain figures on the bike are relatively low compared to the other siblings of the Crossfire family. The riders will instantly feel the under-power performance of this bike, but with cost-cutting, this is pretty much inevitable.

Focusing on the terrain of Nepal, the Tracker 250 gets a completely new engine than the one in other Crossfire bikes. The engine of this bike is said to be well-tuned and better optimised for the roads and terrains of Nepal. The ground clearance of the bike is also decent at 240mm which can be a great deal for the riders. The bike can be used for both day-to-day normal rides or for an adventure ride.

Some of the highlighted features of this bike are:

  • Retro inspired styling
  • Circular halogen headlamp and squared halogen taillamp
  • LED indicators
  • Analogue instrument cluster with gear position indicator
  • Low-fuel indicator
  • Blacked-out engine
  • Stainless steel exhaust
  • Heavy-duty suspension
  • Light weight body
  • High ground clearance
  • Dual purpose tyres
  • Spoke wheels
  • Dual disc braking

Price

There are many exciting features on this bike but at the price of Rs 348,000 you are getting a fair deal. Cost-cutting has been done intensely by the company to make it more affordable to the people here. Tracker 250 can be a great purchase for those dirt bike lovers who do not want to spend a hefty amount on purchasing a new bike.
