YZ championship legacy meets user friendly fun.

Design-wise, the 2010 Yamaha TT-R230 takes its cue from some of our most rugged competition machines. It’s perfect for novice to intermediate riders, with a compact wheelbase, a low seat, and the convenience of electric starting. The longer travel suspension smoothes out even the roughest terrain.

With a compact wheelbase, low seat height and convenient electric starting, this bike is the ideal choice for novice to intermediate riders looking for a fun oriented “recreational” dirt bike.

Climb aboard and be a part of the YZ legacy: the styling and awesome lightweight handling of the TT-R230 are directly inspired by our competition bikes. You’ll tackle any terrain with confidence. The rugged, air-cooled 4-stroke engine with its convenient electric start pumps out plenty of predictable power. And the off road suspension is guaranteed to make short work of rough terrain.
