    Suzuki makes a DR 200SE that's 3,949 and Kawi has a KLX 250S that is 4,899. For the 400 in retail price difference from the Honda I'd go with the Kawi. You'll get more power and an over all more capable bike out of the KLX. Suzuki's DR has been around for a while and if you ever needed parts they wouldn't be hard to find. This is the first year for the 230 and I'm not convinced it's going to have enough get up and go to do a lot of good. I haven't had a chance to ride a 230L but with the added weight for DOT capability I don't see how it would be an impressive package. The 230F makes a half decent play bike but unless your speeds are going to be low and your trips short I'd stay away from the Honda.
