The[Car Owner has something to say]event held on Webike’s online social platform is in full swing! This time, もりもりもりお will share his riding story with HONDA FTR223!

Through the owner’s analysis and evaluation of the car-HONDA FTR223, let riders understand the advantages or disadvantages of HONDA FTR223 from multiple angles.


・Driving age

I have about two years of motorcycle riding experience.

・Into the manual machine

The first motorcycle I bought after getting my driver’s license was FTR 223. At the time, I was looking for a relatively cheap motorcycle, and I ran into this car in a middle-aged car dealership.

At first I planned to use the FTR223 as a practice bike and wait for the technology to improve before buying the next one. However, I have a strong feeling for this bike and reluctant to let go. Now this motorcycle is not only used for commuting to get off work, but also with I traveled all over the mountain forest roads, camping tours, and long-distance trips around Kyushu and around the four countries.

・Starting time

About 2 months ago, I had to change the bike due to an unknown failure, so I rode FTR223 for about 1 year and 10 months.


This car can handle everything I want to do. It weighs about 130 kilograms and is quite light among motorcycles of the same class. I think it is easy to park and can drive on any road. It is very light and easy to ride. In addition, I like mountain running very much. I have a good sense of acceleration in good road conditions, and will not block traffic. Even if I carry a lot of luggage, it will not become difficult to move.

This is a gentle motorcycle that looks very stylish and does not give people a sense of fear, and I personally like this kind of smaller headlights.


Due to the small capacity of the fuel tank, pay more attention to the remaining amount of gasoline during long-distance travel. Although it’s a bit troublesome, I never run out of gas, because I always ride about 100 kilometers to the gas station to refuel.

If you want to keep up with the traffic flow on a straight road with fast traffic, you have to pull the speed quite high, but when the speed is increased, the body vibration will increase, so as long as you ride at high speed, your hands will be numb. Stop and take a rest; in retrospect, I think it’s a shame not to have a tachometer.


If you are worried about the first motorcycle you chose after getting your driver’s license, or don’t know what you want to do with a motorcycle, then you should try FTR223. This motorcycle can be used for camping, long-distance travel, forest walks, Fishing, commuting to and from get off work, to a certain extent, you can do anything. Once you experience it, you will have a better idea of ​​what you want to do, and it’s not expensive. Why not try it?
