2013 Honda CRF230F Review

2013 Honda CRF230F

Within the realm of recreation riding, the CRF230F stands tall: Motorcycling magazines the world over have complimented this mid-sized off-road machine for its many playbike-oriented attributes. With the ease of electric starting, it's the perfect match for all-day fun and off-road adventure.

Throw your leg over the saddle of the CRF230F, push the electric starter, and have a blast. You don’t have to worry about breaking down or excessive maintenance, you can jump on the CRF230F with its durable six-speed transmission and plush, long travel suspension and leave the on-road world in the dust. With its overall size, sturdy frame and lightweight components, the 230F is just the right size for adults or larger teens who can’t wait to take on the twists and turns of the trail.

Add in electric start, and it’s obvious the CRF230F takes play very seriously.

Be A Responsible Rider
All parents need to consider their youngsters' age, size, ability and maturity before allowing them to ride. Obtain a copy of "Off-Road Safety Tips" from your local Honda Dealer.

Number One in Four Strokes.

Honda makes some of the most loved, best-reviewed off-road bikes in the world. And at the heart of them is Honda’s super-reliable four-stroke engine design.

Save Your Energy.

Instead of kickstarting your CRF, just push a button. And let the reliable electric starter system do the work for you.
