    The 2021 Yamaha TT-R230: Built For Offroad Fun​


    The 2021 Yamaha TT-R230 is the top of the trail riding model line. Designed for adult riders, both new and experienced, it provides the best platform for trail riding and being able to conquer everything from flat dirt to rocky scrambles.

    Of course, legendary Japanese reliability helps. The TT-R230 is powered by an air-cooled, 223cc, 2 valve 4-stroke engine that provides 13.7 lb-ft of linear torque all through the rev range, from down low hops to high-revving trail blasts. The bike also gains a 21-inch wheel up front with an 18 inch in the rear. Yamaha’s design ensures there is enough ground clearance for most average adults to have no issues riding even the roughest trails.

    The 2021 Yamaha TT-R230 starts at $4,449 USD / $5,099 CAD.
