The new 250 guaranteed high levels of performance and it was also aesthetically pleasing.
The colour was light blue, the gas tank had chromed highlights and rubber knee pads. It looked similar to the enormous 600 4 cylinder presented the previous year, and this made the 250 even more fascinating. Ablack colour scheme with a red or black gas tank was also presented.
