Purpose-built for serious fun on the trails and tuned for on-road versatility, KLX230 dual-sport motorcycles keep going when the road ends.

Go Play

The KLX230 dual-purpose motorcycle is powered by a 233cc fuel-injected, air-cooled single, tuned for low- to mid-range power.

Smooth, Reliable, Durable

A compact and lightweight engine delivers easy-to-use low- to mid-range torque while the simple yet capable two-valve SOHC low maintenance design makes it ideal for trail riding.

Hassle-Free Adventure

Electric start and fuel injection ensure hassle-free performance regardless of altitude or air temperature.

Built Tough

The engine and chassis were designed together to make the KLX230 dual-purpose motorcycle as agile and lightweight as possible.

Platform with Purpose

The compact perimeter frame, short wheelbase and low seat height offer the handling needed for confident trail riding for a wide range of riders.

Road and Trail

A combination of form and function, the frame, seat and tank were designed to give riders an easier grip, offering superior chassis control. Seams between the shrouds, seat and side covers are flush, which facilitates freedom of movement when changing riding positions.2020 model shown.

Beyond the Road

Designed from the ground up for dirt fun. That’s why the KLX230 motorcycle features long travel suspension, front and rear disc brakes and full-size wheels.

Confident On Road and Off

Long travel suspension, featuring a 37mm front fork and Uni-Trak single-shock rear suspension, soaks up bumps—contributing to ride comfort and control on bumpy streets and rough trails.

Strong Braking Power

Petal disc brakes add even more stopping power, with a twin-piston caliper gripping a 240mm* disc in the front and a 220mm disc in the rear. Available with innovative dual-purpose ABS.*ABS model has 265mm petal disc front rotor.

Big-Time Fun

Full-size aluminum wheels measuring 21-inches in the front and 18-inches in the rear allow for confident riding and handling over varied terrain.

Take on the Street and Dirt

Designed for the trails and tuned for on-road versatility, let the KLX230 motorcycle take you to new heights with on- and off-road capability.

A Kawasaki First

The KLX230 motorcycle features an innovative dual-purpose ABS jointly developed with Bosch. Designed to assist stopping performance on low-friction surfaces, the available dual-purpose ABS will offer reassurance to both new and experienced riders.

Shine Bright

A large 60/55W headlamp provides excellent illumination at night or in low light conditions, and an easy-to-read LCD screen provides all-digital instrumentation.
