When it replaced the old TT-R225, the Yamaha TT-R230 was seen by many riders as one of the best dirt bikes in its class. Even after a few years since its debut the bike is still considered one of the most practical and rugged models in the segment, being perfectly suited for a wide range of applications.

At the heart of the Yamaha TT-R230 lies an electric start, 223cc air-cooled, SOHC four-stroke engine which rewards you a smooth response and a widespread power band perfectly suited for all kinds of trails and riders. The engine is much stronger than expected for an entry level youth bike and you’ll also like the smooth-shifting, six-speed transmission which features a heavy-duty clutch.

Additionally the Yamaha TT-R230 is fitted with a reliable CDI magneto ignition system and a lightweight exhaust with quiet muffler and USFS-approved spark arrestor.
