  1. That's cool. The TT-R230. Very similar to CRF230F. THE YZ must be nice
  2. It really depends on a person's financial situation. As they say one man gathers what another man spills. If your talking perviously owned or new. It's hard to find a used bike that has never been moded or is still stock. For myself new was the right choice. I also think a guy would pay a little more for a used Honda because of reputation. Older bikes of course would require some or more maintenance and there would cost for that weather it be normal wear and tear like chain and sprockets , battery , tires and thing like that. If I were going to go used it would be a Honda for me. There's really no wrong choice because it's a person's choice.

    CRF150/230 Pics and Mods

    2017. CRF230F. no mods yet. Waiting until the warranty is complete.
  4. How long has AJP been in business and are PARTS available like Honda. Those are things to consider. With that being said it's a nice looking bike. Why pay more for a knockoff if you can get the real thing.

    Honda CRF230F (2017)

    For a decient price and very reliable bike easy to ride, Eletric Start 4 stroke power 6 speed transmission. Very good trail bike. With a few upgrades you could race it. There are plenty of other bikes out there but this one I would recommend to the beginner or intermediate rider. The brakes are good , the seat is comfortable. It weights about 250 lbs. I've had Suzuki , Kawasaki, Yamaha and a Harley. I like this bike and I think a lot riders would as well. With a little maintenance it will last for years to come. The only other bike I had I could say the same thing was also a Honda. All the two stoke bike's I had needed more maintenance. I just want to ride.
  6. I would say here in the States (Reno Nevada). I purchased a brand new CRF230F Honda out the door for $4000. USD Plus tax and license. The TTR230 Yamaha is priced the same and think either one would be a good choice. Not much difference in these models. Honda will keep its resale value. So keep that in mind. The Honda's are in stock at just about any dealer in the USA. So far mine has been very good.

    Honda CRF230F 2017

    So Far so good only one day old. I will update after a few more hours on it. Perfect size for me.
  8. I'm a newbie. Also an old guy about 60 I used ride close to thirty years ago from when I was a kid and had a bicycle with a upright B/S "Briggs and Stratton" on it. All the way up to a 70 FLH Harley with jug kit and S&S super 1500 cc. I quit riding after I got married. So just today I went down to Honda and purchased a 2017 CRF230F. I'm 5'10" 165 Lbs. I looked at many bikes and decided to go this way. Honda is most likely the most reliable and bullit prof or at least I think so. I also think at the end of the day it's really a personal preference as what you like to ride. I think if you are good with CRF125F or a CRF125BW all I can say is I would lean towards a little bigger bike than you thought you would want because after you get it you'll always wish you went just a little bigger. I had my hart set on CRF150F an inch or so lower seat hight but I went with the CRF230F and I can't say much about it yet but it's been just great. Went for my first ride today and it has enough power and speed for me. The old Two stroke vs Four stroke story is simple if you like a louder bike and like to work on it a lot like ring and piston jobs than go 2 stoke for me Honda 4 stoke the way to go. I hope this helps
