Small Bike, Big Trophies…
Honda’s CRF150R is, hands down, the best MX machine in the Mini Class. Designed around a four-stroke powerplant that showcases plenty of Honda technology, it’s also graced with the performance that will keep you up at the front of the pack and on the podium. And the CRF150R is available in two versions to fit a wide variety of racers: there’s also the CRF150R Expert, featuring bigger wheels, a higher seat and a longer swingarm.

Options & Pricing

2015 Honda CRF150R Expert www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Strong, lightweight wheels are durable and minimize unsprung weight.
Front Disc Brake
The front disc brake provides powerful, precise braking.
The adjustable 37mm leading-axle inverted Showa cartridge fork features specially tuned valving for small bumps and a friction-reducing design to improve compression and rebound control.
The CRF150R uses a carburetor featuring a “direct push” accelerator pump. Based on the design we used on our carbureted versions of the CRF450R and CRF250R, it gives you better, more immediate throttle response.
The CRF150R uses a Unicam engine based on our championship-winning CRF450R and CRF250R. Designed to give you excellent rideability and more power and torque across the rev band, the engine runs consistently at different tracks and varying elevations and temperatures—it’s an all-around winner.
A lightweight, high-tensile steel frame with large-diameter frame tubing and crossmember delivers excellent turning performance and straight-line tracking.
Pro-Link® Rear Suspension
The CRF150R’s Pro-Link rear-suspension system features a fully adjustable Showa® shock for superb bump absorption and wheel control.
