Japan has produced way more brilliant off-road bikes than anyone could have predicted back in the early days. Engineers and designers from the big four manufacturers have constantly tried new ideas and tweaked old ones.

It’s not all pure function, though. They have consistently produced machines that are as pleasing on the eye as they are on the backside. They make them good but they make them beautiful as well. I remember a magazine article I read many years ago where a Yamaha employee explained to the interviewer that when an engineering breakthrough ruined the aesthetic of a bike, they all had to keep working at it until they got it to look right. For them function and form were two equal parts of one magnificent whole.

The DT230 Lanza is a wonderful example of this. It is a compact, powerful lightweight, liquid-cooled two-stroke with plenty of punch. Quite capable on the roads and absolutely loves bouncing around on the rocks and mud. But on top of that it is a beautiful machine. If a Serow and a TDR250 got together and made a baby, it would look something like this. A little more of a puffed up chest than a Serow, with the huge exhaust chamber of the TDR, but in a smaller, lighter package. It really is something special.

Ours is a 1997 model in wonderful condition all over. The shocks, tank, engine, frame, exhaust – they all look wonderful. Mechanically too she ticks all the boxes. We are delighted to have unearthed her in Japan and can’t wait to find her a new home over here. This is a 21 year old bike that looks almost new and has only covered 13,800 miles. Come down and take a look!
