Purchasing motivation, purpose, comparison of car models

I used to ride an adventure car with a large displacement. Later, I suffered a compression fracture of the spine due to an accident. Although I recovered smoothly, the sequelae was that my waist was easily uncomfortable.

Because I didn’t want to ride a large-displacement adventure car in this situation, I sold the car. When I thought about not riding a motorcycle again, I happened to meet the XL230 and bought it. After that, I was completely obsessed with the retro off-road vehicle shape and light weight, which allowed me to continue my motorcyclist career.


1. I like this body shape and atmosphere, which is a style that will never appear in new off-road vehicles nowadays.
2. This is not a motorcycle that can be violently attacked, but because it is based on off-road vehicles, it is very suitable for riding trips on non-paved roads.


1. There are almost no modified parts, it is a bit difficult to make it unique.
2. The headlights are a bit dim, almost useless in brightly lit urban areas (laughs).
3. Because it is an off-road style, it would be even more handsome if it can be equipped with a foot starter!

Advice for future buyers

1. Because it is a 250cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine, I think the maintenance cost should not be too much. If you like a single-cylinder engine and a retro style, you can buy it.

2. Although the year is a bit old, but because it is HONDA, it is not likely to malfunction. It is a versatile and reliable car that can travel daily and travel on holidays.
