2012 Honda CRF230F Review
Throw fun into high gear.
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.
There is no one single feature that makes the CRF230F stand apart. Instead it’s the combination of all its features that has made it one of the most popular trail bikes we build. Features like the bulletproof six-speed transmission. The plush Pro-Link rear suspension with long travel. The durable and right-sized 223cc four-stroke engine. The rugged frame, lightweight materials front to back, and of course, the electric starter that gets you going with the push of a button. Add our legendary reliability and build quality to the mix, and you end up with a bike that delivers non-stop fun for adults and larger teens alike.
So if you like low maintenance and ease-of-operation mixed in with your fun, then the CRF230F is the perfect bike for you.
