Kawasaki Supermoto KLX 230SM 2023 with two 17-inch rims instead of the conventional dual sport version's 21-18 set, this is a supermoto variant. A new front fender that matches the wheel has been added, and the front suspension has been altered to a USD fork setup.
The front 300 mm disc will provide the bike with powerful stopping power, exactly what you want when riding around the city. Even so, it retains the six-speed transmission and 233 cc air-cooled engine that Kawasaki first put on the bike for street and trails.
The KLX230SM has larger brakes than its predecessor and rides on 17-inch spoked wheels covered in 110/70 and 120/70 road tyres. The Kawasaki 230 has bigger rims, measuring 3.50 inches in back and 3.00 inches up front, compared to the 150 cc options.
That's a dual-piston front calliper and a single-piston unit with a 300 mm front and 220 mm rear. As a result, Kawasaki promises reduced braking dive on the forks, and the rear will undoubtedly be livelier as well.
On the performance front, with the ECU settings increasing the lower rapid idle during warm-up and changing the settings for higher altitudes. The volume is 233 cc, and the compression ratio is a low 9.4:1. A wet multi-disc clutch is mated with a six-speed gearbox. According to Kawasaki, the fuel injection pattern has also been modified for cooler weather to provide greater throttle response.
