New 2022 Model Kawasaki KLX 230 SE Only for the USA let's take a deep look into it. 



This light and cheap enduro, costs $ 4,999, has a 21-inch front end, updates and comes in the SE version. 

In the US it costs the equivalent of € 4,400 and is a slim dual sport for easy off-road bucking.
It is the Kawasaki KLX 230 , also available in the S version (with reduced travel suspension) and now also in the SE version , an acronym that distinguishes the more equipped Kawasaki versions.


In Italy the last KLX 250 was sold in 2016, it was less than 4,500 euros and had a liquid-cooled engine with 22 horsepower for a dry weight of 138 kg. It was Euro 3 approved , so it was no longer imported into Europe.


In the USA it continues to be available, with some updates arrived in the meantime but without the lighting system and the initials R , and with displacements increased to 300. For road use, however, there is the homologated version KLX 300 , and then there is precisely the Dual Sport KLX 230 .

It is powered by an air-cooled 233cc four-stroke single cylinder , fueled by injection and the gearbox is six-speed. There are digital instruments and electric starters.


The frame in square and round steel tubes has a 37 mm telehydraulic fork with 220 mm travel, while the adjustable Uni-Trak rear mono provides 225 mm wheel travel.
 The wheels are 21 and 18 inches , the disc brakes measure 240 and 220 mm, the seat height is 884 mm , the tank is 7.6 liters and the dry weight is declared in 132 kg .


The SE stands out for a series of new features : hand guards, tapered handlebars, side frame sliders, black anodized rims, number plate, special graphic coloring.

In addition to Kawasaki, Yamaha has also stopped importing bikes from that segment, such as the TT-R230 , and recently only Honda has proposed a new CRF300F .


Fault of a modest demand and homologation difficulties, this is the common justification, too bad because the KLX 230 SE is a motorcycle - as they say - “smart”.
