    make sure you can legally "dual-sport" the TTR 230 in your location -- otherwise you may want the equivalent XT225 -- the road legal version of the TTR225. negative of the Xt225 for trail riding is that it does not have a low enough gearing for tight single track and the clutch is more of an on/off thing. also it is a heavy bike (like the TTR) -- i think they both weigh more than my CRF450R, certainly rides like it weighs much more...

    I believe the Yamaha TTR 230 is about 14.5hp.

    I'm looking to buy a TT-R 230 and I want to know if it is going to be a good bike for a beginning trail rider

    Sure! The TTR 230 is very mello, low to the ground and well made. If you end-up wanting to move on to something more aggressive the TTR 230 has good re-sale value, if well taken care of.

    Plus the TTR-230 is as reliable as an anvil. You'll have a great time on this bike.
