22 May 2019 New Kawasaki KLX230 comes to Sweden

For the 2020 model year, Kawasaki Sweden is adding the new KLX230 enduro style dual purpose machine to its range.

With the dramatic styling lines of a KX motocross machine and both road equipment and off road abilities, the air-cooled four-stroke machine looks set to attract new, young riders to the Kawasaki brand and also appeal to those higher up the experience range that desire a light, maneuverable and capable machine.

At the core of the new machine is the 233cc single overhead cam, two valve engine tuned to deliver pleasing and controllable low to mid-range power. Advanced fuel injection ensures a steady flow of effective pulling power coupled with linear acceleration characteristics.

The chassis comprises an all new compact perimeter style frame constructed to deliver confidence inspiring feedback both on trail and road. Coupled with a 21 inch front and 18 inch rear wheel, plush long-travel suspension and Kawasaki first “dual-purpose” ABS functionality catering for on and off road braking eventualities, the KLX230 combines the best of technology and simplicity rewarding rider input with a unique and appealing sense of purpose.

For convenience an electric start is standard fitment, so too a six speed transmission plus a generous 7.5 litre fuel tank capacity. Adding extra eye-line appeal, the KLX230 boasts an LCD meter including such functions as speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, clock and indicator lamps.

Former motocross GP rider, now Sales Manager for Kawasaki Sweden, Joakim Karlsson, thinks the KLX230 is ideally suited to the Swedish market saying:

“For sure the KX motocross looks of the KLX230 will instantly appeal to new riders and those building on their experience but we also think there are a lot of long term riders of all ages that will identify with the quality and convenience of this new machine for 2020.”
