I know this is a bit early, as the new Kawasaki model is just getting to US dealers. I still haven't seen any road tests or owner reviews (at least not in English, the bike has been out overseas for a little while). But how will it compare to the Honda CRF250L? Both have EFI and optional ABS brakes. The Honda has a slightly larger engine, but it weighs about 40lbs more. Could any new KLX230 owners please post their experiences? Anyone have any links to actual reviews? (please don't post "reviews" that just parrot back the Kawasaki press release). Meanwhile, any thoughts on how these two bikes might compare? I'll go first - it appears that the factory cargo rack on the KLX230 bolts directly to the main frame, so maybe carrying heavier loads won't result in the cracked subframe issues that CRF250Ls seem prone to. BTW - Will the new KLX push Honda into making a CRF300L? Pretty much all Honda would have to do is swap out the crankshaft from a Rebel 300 (they could continue making the 250 for countries with licensing/insurance limits that favor 250's).
