    I hate it...


    I just got this bike one year ago. I am in the garage more then im out side riding. it is to heave to even corner good. it's terrible in snow and sand. but if it is the price you are looking at that is still wrong because you will have hundreds of dollars to repair it ever time you ride
    Heavy and reliability


    i think it is a good bike you probably cant ride it properly


    Agree. I'm working on it more then im riding it.. parts are expensive.

    Iv resently bought a TTR230 and when it comes to power i dont see it having, the top speed it reaches is 80km.. thats on a flat road if theres a bit of a hill it'll slow even futher down. The first bike i ever own was a klr 250 and it went faster, it was an 1988. So if anyone can help me, if there is any posible way to speed it up. all ears.
    Sturdy bike good for out bush.
    Not very fast.

    The Yamaha TT R230 sports a single cylinder, 4 stroke, air cooled 223CC motor. This is a carbureted motor which means this is a simple and low cost fuel feeding system, helping with a low cost of maintenance.

    You also have an electric starter, 29.46cm (11.6 inches) of ground clearance, front disc brakes, and rear drum brakes. Standard tires include MX-Style wheels and tires, which means the TT R230 is ready to head off-road straight from the factory.

    And for additional protection, you have rubber tubing protecting the suspension forks and seal, and grippy foot pegs that are designed to keep your boots secure to the bike in slippery conditions.

    Points of Praise

    • Great dirt bike for farm work
    • Compared to its competitors, it has a better top speed, holds its value due to demand and is light enough to pick up if you fall off it or drop the bike in slippery conditions.
    • A reliable bike, and easy for beginners to ride.
    • Basic servicing is easily carried out by one’s self if you live in a remote area.

    Pain Points

    • Front light position angle hits too high off the ground, requiring a custom bracket to bring the light position further down to increase ground visibility
    • Rear drum brakes can be weak, which can increase braking distances.
    • Seat can get uncomfortable after a day of riding.
