  • 233 cc Fuel-Injected, Air-Cooled, Four-Stroke Single with Electric Start Dual-sport capability Lightweight Perimeter Frame and Long-Travel Suspension


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

  • ENGINE DESIGN - Smooth, Reliable, Durable: A compact and lightweight engine delivers easy-to-use low- to mid-range torque ideal for trail riding. New ECU settings result in improved high-altitude power delivery and crisper throttle response in cold temperatures. A smooth-shifting six-speed transmission covers a wide range of street-riding conditions and allows for more comfortable cruising on the highway, as well as trail riding.
  • ELECTRIC START - Hassle-Free Adventure: Electric start and fuel injection ensure hassle-free performance regardless of altitude or air temperature, while contributing to clean emissions.


Built Tough: The engine and chassis were designed together to make the KLX230 as agile and lightweight as possible.

  • PERIMETER FRAME - Platform with Purpose: The high-tensile perimeter frame, short wheelbase and a low seat height offer the handling needed for confident trail riding for a wide range of riders and environments. The KLX230 S offers an accessible seat height of 830 mm.
  • KX-INSPIRED ERGONOMICS - 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. Actual product may vary from image


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

  • LONG-TRAVEL SUSPENSION - Confident On Road and Off: Long-travel suspension, featuring a ø37 mm front fork and Uni Trak single-shock rear suspension, soaks up bumps—contributing to ride comfort and control on bumpy streets and rough trails.
  • DISC BRAKES - Strong Braking Power: Petal disc brakes offer sure stopping power, with a twin-piston caliper gripping a ø265 mm disc in the front and a ø220 mm disc slowing the rear. Equipped with Kawasaki’s first dual-purpose ABS.
  • FULL-SIZE WHEELS - Big-Time Fun: Full-size aluminium wheels measuring 21” in the front and 18” 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 S take you to new heights with on- and off-road capability.

  • BOSCH ABS - A Kawasaki First: The KLX230 S is available with an innovative dual-sport calibrated ABS system jointly developed with Bosch. Designed to assist stopping performance on low-friction surfaces, this ABS system will offer reassurance to both new and experienced riders. Switch-operated rear brake ABS cancel function facilitates more active off-road sport riding performance.
  • HEADLIGHT - Shine Bright: A new, compact LED headlight provides excellent illumination at night or in low light conditions. A new headlight cowling and new front fender contribute to sportier, more aggressive styling.
  • INSTRUMENTATION - At-a-glance information: An all-digital instrument panel offers at-a-glance information care of a large, easy-to-read LCD display screen. Features include: speedometer, odometer, dual-trip meters, fuel gauge, clock, and indicator lamps.
  • ADDITIONAL FEATURES - Unlock Your Adventure: A toolbox is located inside a lockable compartment under the left side cover. Both the ignition and side cover panel lock are operated with the Kawasaki One Key System.
