Purpose-built for riders looking for off-road fun on woodland or desert trails, Kawasaki’s new KLX230R features an engine and frame both designed from the start with trail riding in mind. The all new 233 cm3 air-cooled, 4-stroke Single engine delivers ample low-mid range torque, and its simple construction makes it suitable for tough terrain.
Extensive feedback from Kawasaki test riders helped achieve an engine-chassis balance that a wide range of riders – especially new and intermediate riders – will enjoy. KX inspiration can be found in the slim ergonomics and aggressive bodywork.
The new KLX230R offers a number of advantages versus its dual-purpose brother, the KLX230: a lightweight plastic fuel tank, aluminium swingarm, light 115kg weight, and greater wheel travel (250 mm) and ground clearance (300 mm). All in all, the new highly-capable play bike (with 21”/18” wheels) is light, manoeuvrable and powerful, making it an ideal partner for off-road adventure with friends or family.
