2009 Honda CRF230L
The Honda CRF230L is the perfect motorcycle for riders who don’t want the end of the road to mean the end of their fun. With its lightweight CRF chassis, responsive 223 cc four-stroke engine and comfortable size, the CRF230L is a blast to ride on the trail. And with a full complement of on-road gear, it’s also a great street bike for both novice and experienced riders alike. The CRF230L is easy to handle, fun to ride, and loaded with premium features such as a powerful front disc brake and electric start. Honda has a long history of building great dual-purpose bikes. The CRF230L continues that proud tradition.
It’s hard knowing where to begin when describing the CRF230L. First, it’s a dirtbike that happens to be street-legal, so it has the goods—223cc single-cylinder engine, six-speed gearbox, lightweight chassis, Pro-Link® rear suspension, turn signals—to take you anywhere, on-road or off. Add to that electric start and great gas mileage, and you’re looking at the perfect dual-sport machine for conquering your commute or your favorite trail.
With the do-it-all CRF230L, you get a compact and lightweight adventure-loving dual-sport machine that willingly serves as an economical commuter, a motor-home runabout or a weekend outback-exploration vehicle.
