The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 230 ABS: A Subtle, Competent Dual-Sport

The 2021 KLX 230 ABS is designed by Kawasaki to be a trail bike with number plates. Unlike it’s bigger brother the KLX 300, the 230 is much more at home on the trail than the road. However, that’s not to say it doesn’t have road manners. Powered by a 233cc fuel-injected, air-cooled four stroke single, it packs 20 HP and 11 lb-ft of torque.

The Japanese company doesn’t skimp out on features either. For the first time on the KLX 230 platform, dual-zone ABS comes as standard, compared to separate ABS zones on the 2020 bike. What this means is that the ABS sensor determines the braking load across both wheels at the same time, instead of just on one wheel. An electric starter, indicators, headlight, and fully digital backlit dash complete the dual-sport package.

The 2021 Kawasaki KLX 230 ABS starts at $4,899 USD / $5,499 CAD.
