Take trail adventuring to the next level. With long-travel suspension and ample ground clearance, KLX230R lightweight, full-size recreational trail bikes are purpose-built for serious fun in the dirt.

Go Play

The KLX230R recreational off-road motorcycle is powered by a 233 cc fuel-injected, air-cooled single, tuned for low-mid range 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, while contributing to clean emissions.

Built Tough

Designing the engine and chassis at the same time was key to making the KLX230R play bike as agile, balanced and reliable as possible, appealing to new riders and fun for experienced riders.

Platform with Purpose

The compact perimeter frame, short wheelbase and a low seat height offer the handling needed for confident trail riding. The KLX230R offers a seat height of 925 mm vs. 900 mm on the KLX230R S.

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.

Take on the Trails

Designed from the ground up for dirt fun. That’s why the KLX230R off-road motorcycle features long-travel suspension, front and rear disc brakes and full-size wheels.

Confident Trail Riding

Long travel suspension, featuring a o37 mm 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 o240 mm disc in the front and a single-piston caliper gripping the o220 mm disc in the rear.

Big-Time Fun

Full-size aluminium wheels measuring 21” in the front and 18” in the rear efficiently overcome trail obstacles for confident riding and handling off-road.

Optimum Fun

A 6.6-litre fuel capacity means long-range fun on the trails while the aluminium swingarm, plastic fuel tank and streamlined bodywork keep weight as low as possible.
