Bigger wheels, a higher seat and longer swingarm…
Younger racers may be smaller in stature, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a giant-sized heart for racing—and winning. So for these younger racers, Honda designed the CRF150R as an integral part of the CRF racing lineup. This is the full-on racing machine, with a high-output 149cc liquid-cooled four-valve four-stroke engine with exceptional torque and drivability throughout the powerband. The championship-caliber chassis includes race-tuned suspension components with plenty of travel front and rear, all set to take on the toughest tracks around. Over the years and all around the country, the CRF150R has won tons of championships at the highest levels of amateur racing. And that makes it the proven choice for younger competitors who are ready to take their racing up to the next level. Available in two versions: the standard CRF150R and the CRF150RB, with bigger wheels, a higher seat and a longer swingarm.
If you’re lucky, your parents used sports or other competitive activities to teach you a lot about life. How to focus. How to set long-term goals. How to train. And how to bring your best every time. At Honda, we get it. And that’s why we build the CRF150R, a machine that’s designed to give smaller-stature racers every advantage they need to succeed. 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 to fit a wider variety of riders, the CRF150R is also available in a second version: the CRF150R Expert, featuring bigger wheels, a higher seat and longer swingarm.
Competitive performance for juniors.
Big wheels, a sturdy chassis, a powerful, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine –
Packed full of high performance technology, the CRF150R is the best place
for future champions to hone their skills.
The journey goes on.
When things start to get more competitive you need a bike that can step up
with you. This is it – the CRF150R. Armed with a powerful 4-stroke Unicam®
engine, that’s smooth and easy to control, a light twist-grip action
gives accurate throttle response while its wide rev-range leaves other riders
trailing in the roost. Now, you’re ready.
The CRF150R uses performance technology based on our championship winning CRF450R and CRF250R.
And this bike handles. Only one step below its bigger brothers, the CRF150R carves corners, rides ruts and catches air like only a CRF-R can. The strong, slim and lightweight steel tube frame mounts a low-friction, long-travel, fully adjustable inverted front fork – just like its big brothers. With performance DNA this strong, you’ll be winning races in no time.
Strong, light and agile.
With strong, lightweight frame, large wheels and revised suspension settings for the 37mm inverted Showa front fork and Pro-Link rear suspension system, the CRF150R offers the rider the confidence needed to get ‘airborne’. Once you find higher levels of expertise, manoeuvres on the ground, and in the air will start to come naturally to you.
Showa® front and rear gives you unrivaled suspension action, especially over smaller, faster bumps that unsettle a bike’s chassis.
High Tech = High Performance.
Thanks to the Unicam® cylinder head, this four-stroke engine is more powerful yet more compact, improving handling, power and efficiency.
Winning is Everything.

2017 Honda CRF150R Expert www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features
Excellent mass centralization
Ultra-high rpm, 149 cc engine is one of the most advanced in the sport, its unique 4-valve, Unicam design gives it very compact dimensions and excellent mass centralization for effortless direction changes on the ground or altitude changes in the air. Rail it or whip it with confidence.
Power when you want it
Short-skirted piston and light flywheel mean the CRF’s willing engine builds revs very quickly – no waiting for the power to “hit”.
Consistent engine operating temperature
Liquid cooling and a Nikasil cylinder liner help to extend engine life. The cooling system’s lightweight aluminum radiator helps to reduce weight and ensure consistent engine operating temperature no matter how hard you push.
More immediate throttle
Flat-slide, FCR 32 mm carburetor is fitted with an accelerator pump for more immediate throttle response. Go ahead, use the 4-stroke advantage to grab the holeshot.
Less shifting more enjoyment
Broad 4-stroke power characteristics allow the CRF150RB to use a five-speed gearbox for less shifting so you can concentrate on your riding.
Easy start from hot or cold
Although the 4-stroke engine is hard to stall, it’s nice to know that an automatic decompression system makes starting easy, hot or cold.
Maximum power output
Maintenance-free digital CD ignition system includes a throttle angle sensor so it can tailor the ignition curve to provide maximum power output whenever you grab that throttle.
Increased durability & maximum control
Heavy-duty clutch is fitted with tough friction plates for increased durability but retains a light pull at the lever giving you maximum control.
Lightweight high-tensile steel frame with large-diameter tubing provides excellent turning performance and keeps you tracking straight through the whoops.
Riding comfort & traction
37 mm, inverted, Showa cartridge front fork features adjustable compression and rebound settings. The fork’s low-friction design will be especially appreciated when it’s helping the front wheel to follow small surface irregularities without breaking traction.
Improved turning precision
Wide-section aluminum top and bottom triple-clamps hold the inverted forks rigidly and position the fork tubes far apart giving you improved turning precision and control.
Comfort on any terrain
Pro-Link rear suspension system features a fully adjustable Showa shock that effectively soaks up whatever the track or trail can throw at it.
Precise control over any terrain
Lightweight wheels and hubs help to reduce un-sprung weight allowing the wheels to effectively follow uneven terrain. The strong and rigid, but lightweight, box-section aluminum swingarm further enhances rear wheel tracking offering precise control whether you’re braking over stutter bumps or root infested trails.
Easy braking in any condition
Lightweight front and rear disc brakes with high-performance pads offer powerful, easy to modulate braking even when you’re riding in the worst conditions.
Large-capacity airbox and reusable two-stage foam air filter means power won’t drop off during long, dusty rides.
Stay comfortable & stay put
Slim, well-padded seat is comfortable and allows maximum movement. Non-slip seat cover gives you excellent control.
Fully adjustable, high-quality controls include comfortable grips, dogleg levers, side-pull throttle and a folding shift lever. Cleated, folding, self-cleaning footpegs offering excellent grip complete the impressive collection of thoughtful touches.
