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. The all-new compact perimeter frame was designed to offer the handling stability needed for confident trail riding, while superior ground clearance and suspension travel enhance off-road capability. 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 115 kg 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.
