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.

Start Every Race In First Place.

Guess which mini-MXer was the first ever to win Bike of the Year from Dirt Rider? The answer: Honda’s CRF150R. So if you’re looking for your race bike, you just can’t beat it. Featuring the revolutionary Unicam® engine, race-ready Showa® suspension and track-ready chassis, its performance is designed to give every racer a head start.

Options & Pricing

With its revolutionary Unicam® four-valve engine and fully adjustable Showa® suspension, the CRF150R was bred to win—that’s pretty much what it’s been doing since its debut. And since at Honda we know Mini racers come in all shapes and sizes, we made sure to create a Mini machine for taller riders as well: the CRF150R Expert, featuring bigger wheels, a higher seat and longer swingarm. The CRF150R. Two sizes, one purpose: domination.
