Features

High-Performance Capability

  • CONFIDENT TRAIL RIDING: Long-travel suspension, featuring a 37mm front fork and Uni-Trak® single-shock rear suspension, soak up bumps with ease contributing to rider comfort and control on rugged terrain.
  • STRONG BRAKING POWER: KX™-style petal disc brakes front and rear add even more sure stopping power, with a twin-piston caliper gripping a 240mm disc in the front and a single piston caliper gripping the 220mm disc in the rear.
  • BIG-TIME FUN: Full-size aluminum wheels measuring 21-inches in the front and 18-inches in the rear efficiently overcome trail obstacles for confident riding and handling off-road.

Rugged Chassis

  • PLATFORM WITH PURPOSE: The compact perimeter frame, short wheelbase and a low seat height offer the handling needed for confident trail riding.
  • DESIGNED FOR THE TRAIL: A combination of form and function, the frame, seat and tank were designed to give riders an easier grip, offering superior chassis control. Seams between the shrouds, seat and side covers are flush, which facilitates freedom of movement when changing riding positions.

Steady Power

  • SMOOTH, RELIABLE, DURABLE: Compact and lightweight engine delivers easy-to-use low- to mid-range torque while the simple yet capable two-valve SOHC low maintenance design makes it ideal for trail riding.
  • HASSLE-FREE ADVENTURE: Electric start and fuel injection ensure hassle-free starting regardless of altitude or air temperature, and clean-burning efficiency earns the KLX®230R a California green sticker for year-round trail access.

Trail-Riding Performance

  • RIDE YEAR ROUND: A spark-arrestor silencer means the KLX230R motorcycle is ready to hit the trails in all 50 states. A California green sticker model is available for year-round trail access.
  • OPTIMUM FUN: A 1.7-gallon fuel capacity means long-range fun on the trails while the aluminum swingarm, plastic fuel tank* and streamlined bodywork keep weight as low as possible.
