2012 Honda CRF150RB Expert Review

There’s nothing small about the size of its performance.

And as good-looking as it might be, the CRF150R’s racing credentials run even stronger. Thanks to a new cylinder head, piston, camshaft and carburetor, this 2012 model boasts improved power, torque and driveability throughout the powerband. Updated suspension settings front and rear produce improved action through even the toughest of track conditions. All of which reinforce the CRF150R’s premier position in racing circles.
