CORONA VIRUS: Due to the lockdown announced by the PM on March 23rd, Seven Seas Motors are able to deal with enquiries and process sales (take deposits, customer details etc.) At this stage it is unclear whether we are able to send staff in to prepare the vehicles for collection or to get vehicles MOT’d. As such, we are not certain we will be able to complete sales, that is to say deliver vehicles or arrange for collection for the foreseeable future except possibly in exceptional circumstances. The exceptional circumstances may be instances where a customer is a “essential worker” (eg. healthcare professional) or carer and requires the vehicle in order to attend their duties. These will be addressed on a case by case basis.

The situation is very fluid right now so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any queries. You can reach us on 01924-911222, where someone working from home will do their best to answer any questions you may have.

Take home this classic for as little as £62 per month. This finance calculation is based on an on the road price of £2,400 with a 20% deposit and payment over 48 months. Early repayment is an option. Terms and conditions apply. Please get in touch for more details.

33 years after it first came out, the Yamaha Serow is now approaching legendary status for its performance, balance and durability. But the Serow didn’t come out of nowhere, of course, and here is its immediate predecessor – the XT250. (The Serow is also sometimes known as the XT but until recently the Serow was always a 225cc bike as opposed to the 250 on the original XT’s.)

The first generation XT’s had a flatter profile, more akin to the trail bikes of the seventies. By the time our 1983 model rolled off the production line it was higher with a more angled tank and seat, close in style to modern enduros. When Yamaha came out with the 225 Serow, as well as giving it a smaller engine they made it slimmer and lower. The original XT is larger all round.

How good is this bike? On paper it doesn’t look spectacular – 17 HP, drum brakes – but performance exceeds expectations. Even though ours is 36 years old, it has only covered 11,000 miles and still delivers great power with good balance and control. Put it this way: Rambo used one – I’ll take that. (In fact, if memory serves, Rambo took the one he used. Don’t steal bikes kids.)

A genuinely strong and reliable bike as well as nudging its way towards classics territory. It’s not mint but the overall condition it very good – please take a look at the pictures and video. We’d be happy to show it to you in person. Get in touch to book a viewing.
