We discontinued these off-road 230cc motorbikes because they were either old or not comfortable for long distance touring. In fact, we now use the larger 250cc off-road motorbikes, XR250s and XR250 Bajas.
Honda FTR230 230cc Motorbikes
This is a good road bike but it was too expensive to use as its original purpose of manufacturing. When we tested on rough roads we realized that this was not the type of bike our customers needed. A good thing about this road/trail bike is it’s very friendly to female or short riders. Later, we imported the newer Honda SL230 which is far better on rough roads. SL230 is a real trail bike with 21″ front wheel and 18″ back wheel (FTR230 has only 18″ front and back wheels). Both models share the same engine.
