2024 Honda CRF150R: SMALLER BUT NO LESS POWERFUL.

Introducing the 2024 Honda CRF150R…

STARTING ADVANTAGE
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.

GET AIRBORNE
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 both on the ground and in the air will start to come naturally to you.

Serving as the perfect entry point for young, aspiring motocross racers, the CRF150R is the smallest machine in Honda’s CRF Performance lineup. It’s offered in both standard and Big Wheel versions, the latter is a great choice for taller riders thanks to its larger wheels, higher seat and additional rear-suspension travel. The scaled-down motocrosser boasts many of the same features found on Honda’s full-size motocross bikes, including Showa® suspension (an inverted fork and a single shock mated to a Pro-Link® rear system), and a Unicam® four-stroke engine that is unique in the mini MX world, delivering a strong but smooth spread of power across the rev range.

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.

  • CRF Performance lineup returns for 2024 with nine great models
  • Four-model CRF Trail family is back, ready to deliver off-road fun
  • Sport-naked CB300R and Pioneer 700 multipurpose side-by-side return

Following one of the most successful AMA Supercross seasons on record, with Team Honda HRC riders Chase Sexton, Hunter Lawrence and Jett Lawrence sweeping all three championships, Honda’s iconic line of CRF Performance and Trail dirt bikes returns for the 2024 model year. Also included in the announcement is the return of the sport-naked CB300R and Pioneer 700 multipurpose side-by-side.

Between the CRF Performance and CRF Trail lineups, Honda offers a wide range of off-road motorcycles that covers nearly every category, from elite-level motocross to family-friendly trail riding. The CRF Performance line includes the CRF450R, CRF450RWE, CRF450R-S, CRF450RX, CRF450X, CRF450RL, CRF250R, CRF250RX and CRF150R, each of which are tailored to push the upper limits in its respective realm of off-road riding and racing. For riders seeking a more relaxed or beginner-friendly experience, the CRF Trail family—including the CRF250F, CRF125F, CRF110F and CRF50F—offer user-friendly design, unmatched reliability, ease of maintenance and hours of fun. In addition to the CRF models, the agile and responsive CB300R brings signature sport-naked styling for 2024, and rounding out the announcement is the middleweight Pioneer 700, a multipurpose side-by-side known for its endless versatility and capability.

“It’s been an unprecedented year for Honda and the CRF Performance line,” said Brandon Wilson, American Honda Manager of Sports & Experiential. “Team Honda HRC has done an incredible job of showcasing just how capable Honda’s dirt bikes are. The knowledge gained from our championship-winning racing efforts trickles down to every model in the lineup, and even to the fun, friendly CRF Trail models, helping owners to make outdoor memories with family and friends.

We’re also pleased to welcome back the CB300R and the Pioneer 700 for 2024. We’re proud to deliver this diverse and capable range of products, offering customers numerous ways to enjoy the outdoors.”

 

 

 

2024 Honda CRF150R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

ENGINE / DRIVETRAIN

  • High-performance Unicam cylinder-head design
  • 149.7cc engine displacement
  • Compact, lightweight engine assembly weighs only 43.6 pounds
  • Twin-sump lubrication system separates the oil supply for the crankshaft, piston and valve train from the clutch and transmission. This ensures a supply of cool oil to the clutch, eliminates potential clutch and transmission material contamination of the engine oil, reduces the amount of circulating oil, and permits the use of a smaller oil pump
  • Cylinder head, piston, camshaft, and carburetor provide power, torque, and rideability throughout the powerband
  • Lightweight, compact, internal auto decompression and handlebar-mounted hot-start system provide easy starting, hot or cold
  • 32mm Keihin FCR carburetor with an accelerator-pump circuit provides accurate fuel metering, resulting in crisp throttle response and good rideability throughout the powerband
  • Suspension settings provide good action through even the toughest of track conditions
  • Exhaust system uses a lightweight stainless-steel header and re-packable aluminum muffler
  • Durable close-ratio five-speed transmission\

CHASSIS / SUSPENSION

  • Front and rear suspension settings unique to the CRF150R deliver ideal bump-absorption characteristics
  • Lightweight, high-tensile steel frame with large-diameter frame tubing and cross-member provides excellent turning performance and straight-line tracking
  • 37mm leading-axle inverted Showa cartridge fork features friction-reducing design to improve compression and rebound control
  • Pro-Link rear suspension

  • High-performance Dunlop tires
  • HRC works-type rear-brake system integrates the rear master cylinder and fluid reservoir, eliminating the separate rear master-cylinder reservoir and hose

START FAST, FINISH FIRST
At Honda, we produce a whole line of bikes built for fun. But when you’re talking about a CRF150R or CRF150R Expert, you’re talking about a pair of bikes built to win. Offering two sizes means you can pick which one is right for your future champion based on how tall they are—the bikes’ engine, frame, and power output are the same. The Expert has bigger wheels and a longer swingarm, so you’ll find it fits taller riders a bit better. Both feature our high-performance Unicam® engine, a Honda exclusive that’s light, compact, high-revving and powerful. If you want to find out what victory tastes like, get on a Honda CRF150R or a CRF150R Expert.
