2020 Yamaha TT-R230
Yamaha’s highest-displacement trailbike, the TT-R230, is an intermediate rider’s trail riding companion.
First introduced in 2005 when it replaced the TT-R225, the Yamaha TT-R230 still continues to bring adult beginners and intermediate riders to the trails in 2020. Its 223cc air-cooled engine has reasonable output and its electric starter is a convenient way to get it up and running. In comparison with its competition, the Yamaha TT-R230 has a shorter seat height (34.3 inches), but retails at a price that slides in between at $4,449. Other features include a steel frame, a disc brake up front, a drum brake in the rear, and 21-inch and 18-inch wheels (front/rear).
