I have owned my 2004 Honda crf230 for a few months now and so far it has been excellent. It has good bottom-mid range power and pulls pretty hard for a trail bike. I take mine over smaller jumps but the suspension is pretty soft so it cant handle jumps that are pretty big. I would recommend getting a stiffer spring and different forks if you wanted to take the bike to a track or race it. There are many upgrades you can get for the bike as well. I would recommend this dirtbike to anyone… Read Full Review

I bought a Honda CRF 230 and I have had nothing but pure good luck and lots of fun. I think if you buy one you would think so to if you want a good trail bike. It is not fast like a 2 stroke, and has no kick start, but very reliable. I buy nothing but Honda… Read Full Review

I see and know too many guys that buy dirt bikes with way more power than they can handle, or they cant use on the type of tracks that they are riding on. THEY GET HURT REAL BAD! and then sell their egotisticaly purchased RACE bike and never ride again. so sad! The crf 230 is a trail bike, and a nice one at that. If you want more power and better handling there are all types of aftermarket parts avaliable for it. my opinon is buy one, ride on, have fun until you cant through your old leg over… Read Full Review

I have just returned from the Enduro Africa ride for life across the wild coast of South Africa taking in 2000 kms of extreme off road riding terrain. The bike supplied was the CRF 230.
Having not done much off road stuff before this was always going to be a challenge for me. However it did not appear to be much of a challenge for the 100+ Hondas which were used for all the riders taking part. Everyone on the trip had the same comments - indestructible with the usual reliability of the… Read Full Review

The Honda CRF is a great dual purpose bike, easy to ride, light, can be used as a commuter or reasonable serious off road. Honda made the engine in the 70,s its very strong and rarely breaks before it wears out, and a tank of fuel will last all day… Read Full Review

The Honda CRF 230 is a good trail bike, and if you spend the money it can be a great race bike. Good power and not to big so its good for trail riding. its ok a jumping but if you want to jump over six feet you will need to change your front shocks. This would be a good bike for a younger person or someone that loves to trail ride… Read Full Review

My 2005 Honda CRF 230 has a very noticeable knock when idleing. It is not valve noise rather a deep thud inside the motor. I cannot tell if it is lower or upper area noise. However, the noise stops (or appears to) once I take off. If anyone has had this problem, or, may have an idea what it is please add a comment. I am very concerned I may be damaging my motor… Read Full Review

I have a Honda xr200r 1982, and I wanted a replacement for this and the Honda CRF 230f 225 fitted the bill exactly, electric start and a disc brake, so it goes and stops, if you are 5'8" or less this bike is ideal for a first bike for long distance trials or trail riding.
I have even done a proper trial on it and did quite well against monos, and twin shocks, if i could put that engine in my twin shock bike I would do much better than I do now, very torquey engine.
Ideal in the woods, but if… Read Full Review

The Honda CRF 230f is an all round top bike. Don't go with the sheep and buy orange, be yourself, ride this and they wont need to stop for you all day. It isn't a CRF250, but, it hasn't got the price tag either, big fun for cheap bucks!!… Read Full Review
