HONDA continues to set the benchmark in the trail bike market, with the unveiling of its 2015 CRF230F model.
Boasting a clever combination of features which make it one of Honda’s most popular trail bikes, the CRF230F retains all the features that have made it famous, with bold new styling upgrades to set it apart from the competition.
With a bulletproof six-speed transmission, lightweight build, durable 223cc four-stroke engine and electric starter, the CRF230F has as much get up and go as it does practicality.
The 2015-spec trail bike brings together a long list of tried and tested features with a brand new look, including updated guard shape, headlight design and colour schemes.
The 223cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine delivers big power and torque over a wide rev range, all at the touch of the button with the electric starter.
A heavy-duty clutch offers smooth engagement of power, while the Showa shocks offer an impressive 216mm of suspension travel at the front and 228mm at the rear.
The rugged, high-tensile steel frame is designed to tackle the greatest of adventures, while the large 7-litre plastic fuel tank, Motocross style seat and lightweight materials front to back ensure it’s done with ease.
Honda has also made sure maintenance is simplified, with a maintenance-free CD ignition, sealed battery, snail-type chain adjusters and a reusable, foam air filter significantly reducing maintenance costs.
