Before you buy a 2008 Yamaha TT R230 Sports-Bike in Uganda

One look at the TT-R230’s pure Yamaha racing colors and YZ styling and you might think you’d have to be Chad Reed to climb abroad. The reality is slightly different.

Compact size it may be, but with its light, responsive feel, plush suspension, and the look to match the performance, the new TT-R230 is perfect for full-sized adventures.

Yamaha started producing the wonderful TT-R230 in 2005 as a brand new model replacing the much heavier TT-R225.

Practically, the TT-R230 continues what its inspiring model, the TT-R225, started but it takes things a step further by losing a lot of weight and becoming way easier to handle and this makes it a better performer.

General 2008 Yamaha TT R230 Sports-Bike reviews for Uganda

The exterior: Yamaha sells this bike with performance and good looks. I am now referring at the second named aspect and I would like to say that it couldn’t have gotten better than that.

The front of the bike looks clearly YZ-inspired by presenting a high blue front fender and white number plate. Its racing aspect is continued with the long and low flat seat that only speaks about competition and comfort while the rear end is being dominated by the white side number plates and sharp-looking rear fender.

A finishing note is being given by those Team Yamaha-inspired colors and graphics which position it apart from the rest of the motorcycles and identify it as being a Yamaha

The drivetrain: Being destined to a wide range of beginning riders, the Yamaha TT-R230 had to be user-friendly and confidence-inspiring or otherwise it wouldn’t have completed it purpose on the market. Of course it is!

During the test run, this bike pulls very well right from the start and doesn’t reserve any surprises to its initiating riders. This is a positive aspect which brings most of the contribution needed for it to become a real friend who contributes at the bright future of the Yamaha rider.

The six-speed transmission has a low first gear (as expected) good for learning or going through tough stuff and then jumps into a taller second gear. The 230 has the power to pull it with a very broad, torque blend that invites you to shift shortly, but still revs out and provides you with a unique riding experience.

Alternatives or Competitors to the 2008 Yamaha TT R230 Sports-Bike available in Uganda

Honda also offers a 223cc starters bike covered in racing plastics so competition couldn’t have been more benefic for the two manufacturers. Put in simple, moto-friendly terms, the CRF230F is a certified blast to ride. Just ask the countless riders, of all skill and experience levels, which’ve ever twisted its throttle and made easy work of the toughest trails. With its six-speed transmission, plush, long-travel suspension, electric starter, 34.1-inch seat height, and new fuel tank, it’s the perfect competitor for the Yamaha I am reviewing.
