2012 Honda CRF100F Review

Fun. Versatile. Trouble-free: The CRF100F.

Thanks to its renown 99cc four-stroke engine and a manual clutch with smooth, progressive action-just right for mastering the knack of clutch starts and manual shifting-the CRF100F has long stood as the iconic machine for introducing beginners to the joy of riding. Yet this incredibly versatile little machine has also been put to effective use for helping world-class racers to hone their riding skills. With such wide-ranging credentials, the little CRF100F stands tall as one of the most popular off-road bikes in the history of the sport.

How to describe Honda’s CRF100F? Sure it’s reliable. And it’s the perfect size to fit a wide range of riders. But most of all, it’s just plain fun to ride. Of course, the CRF100F has a serious side, too. Its proven powerplant, smooth-shifting five-speed transmission, Pro-Link® suspension and overall Honda quality mean plenty of performance with no headaches. Plus its low seat height and light weight make it just the right size for a wide range of riders with fun on their minds.

The CRF100F puts the fun into riding and removes any hassle. Don’t you wish everything in life worked like that?

All Play, Always Works.

What recreational riders need most is an engine that always works. Honda’s simple and dependable 99cc four-stroke has proven itself anvil tough.

The Best Start.

The CRF100F is the starting point for so many new riders, thanks to its manageable size and power. But before you kick it into gear, you should make sure you know the bike, know yourself, and know the sport.

Honda Power.

Trail riding can be tough on machinery and our lightweight steel frame can take it. It’s geometrically shaped for proper weight distribution, while delivering the power off-roading demands.


Honda quality means less frustration.

Off-road riding is all about confidence—in yourself and in your bike. Because it’s a Honda, the CRF100F is built to be trouble-free: It includes an ultra-reliable CD ignition that never needs maintenance, heavy-duty clutch, long-lasting tires and a legendary history of satisfied riders.
