2015 Honda CRF230F on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

CRF230F – ready, willing and able…

The CRF230F harkens back to a simpler time when four-strokes were renowned for their user-friendly power delivery and relaxed maintenance schedules. Simple, reliable and easy to ride, the CRF230F even has the luxury of electric start – but don’t underestimate how much fun it is to ride. With its short wheelbase, reasonable seat height and chassis geometry focused on agility, the CRF230F is hard to beat on tight single-track trails. The supple long travel suspension seems to ignore roots and ruts and the low overall weight just adds to the sense of effortless handling. Best of all, the low-maintenance design means you can enjoy charging through the woods all day, all week or all summer without concern.

Ratchet Up The Fun Without Twisting A Wrench

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 time-sapping maintenance—with a minimum of care, you can jump on the CRF230F with its new graphics and bodywork, 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 CRF230F is just the right size for adults or larger teens who can’t wait to take on the twists and turns of the trail.

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.
