2013 Honda CRF100F Review

2013 Honda CRF100F

It’s all grown up. Almost.

Renowned for its anvil-tough construction and smooth performance, the CRF100F features a quiet, powerful and quick-starting air-cooled 4-stroke engine and 5-speed gearbox that makes shifting child’s play while developing riding confidence. Its long-legged suspension really soaks up the bumps to deliver just the right combination of lively performance and easy handling. Get ready for long days – and years – of off-road riding enjoyment.

Used by riders of all levels of experience to sharpen their abilities, the powerful but unruffled CRF100F remains the best-selling off-road bike of all time. For 2011 it is updated with new Honda Racing inspired colours and graphics, based on the CRF450R design. As well as new stripes, the CRF100F also gets a new black handlebar and new Power Red seat leather. The rear fender shape has been updated and the fender and side covers are now white, in line with the latest CRF450R.

Thanks to its renowned 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.


Perfect size. Perfect performance. Perfect bike. The CRF100F from Honda.

If you’re looking for a flawless off-roader, look no further. Because the CRF100F has the perfect size and the perfect amount of power for a wide range of riders. The 99cc engine, Pro-Link® suspension and smooth-shifting five-speed transmission help build confidence and skill on the trail. While the low weight and seat height make it both easy to handle and fun to ride. And then there’s the legendary Honda reliability — the CRF100F is virtually trouble—free, so your outdoor adventures go uninterrupted.

Be A Responsible Rider
All parents need to consider their youngsters’ age, size, ability and maturity before allowing them to ride. Obtain a copy of “Off-Road Safety Tips” from your local Honda Dealer.

Hard At Play.

Honda’s 99cc hassle-free four-stroke engine is central to what makes this bike so fun. It’s tough. It’s dependable. And it keeps the fun going ‘til the sun goes down.

Start Smart.

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.

Forged Of Steel.

Honda’s CRFs have a reputation for toughness. And it all starts with our lightweight steel frame. It’s geometrically shaped for proper weight distribution, while delivering the power off-roading demands.
