is this bike as good as the competition?

hi i would like ask all of you who wrote something here before, or new people, how are you liking or5 disliking your 230l? pros and cons?

i have a klr 650 and for city, or teaching to ride to wife it is the wrong tool for the job. Also it is too tall so a was looking into something smaller and i don't care for hp, i learned on a 125 cc with 12 ponies so getting to 55 mph was a long time.

i want to use this bike for going to work, 4 miles each way with city and some light hwy traffic, for a total of 16 miles per day, and on the weekends it could be my wife's bike (maybe a bit tall for her)

so do you like it? how does it compare to the xt225 or 250? how is longer term cost of ownership?

my local dealer has some cut down prices on this bikes and it could be a great bike.

thanks for your input
