DIY 250cc Army Style Offroad Scooter


In this video you see me building a DIY 250cc army style offroad scooter at home in my garage. The video contains the full build start to finish and the testdrive. I added chapters below to easily navigate through the video.

After building a few electric scooters I thought it was time to build one that was gasoline powered. I got my hands on the front forks and engine of a Yamaha Majesty 250 and got to work.

The goal was to create an offroad scooter so I mounted offroad tires. It drives very well and has more than enough power (it’s kinda scary fast in the straight line 🙂 ), but I have to admit the offroad capabilities are a bit limited due to the small wheels and low ground clearance.


In the testdrive part of the video you see I have to carefully navigate not to get stuck. In the open fields it would be perfect.Apart from that, I am very happy how it turned out. It looks and drives great and is a lot of fun.//HennyButabi
