2008 Honda CRF100F

Amazingly versatile, anvil-tough and used by everyone from beginners to world champions to hone their riding skills, the CRF100F remains one of the most popular off-road bikes of all time.

The only thing greater than the CRF100F’s versatility is its popularity as one of the most beloved off-road bikes Honda has ever created. Lightweight, easy to handle and stone-reliable, the CRF100F boasts a bulletproof four-stroke engine, smooth five-speed transmission, and just enough size for adults to have fun on—and a seat height just low enough that younger riders can too. Quite simply, it’s probably one of the greatest off-road teaching tools ever invented.

The CRF100F’s legendary durability has helped make it the training machine of choice for even pro-level racers, while its comfortable size and forgiving, user-friendly nature appeal to younger riders who are just getting up to speed. Its seat height is lower than the CRF150F’s, yet with large 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels, it can go almost anywhere you ask it to. Add full Showa suspension, a slick-shifting five-speed gearbox with manual clutch, and a powerful and reliable 99 cc four-stroke engine, and you have a bike that just about everyone in the family can enjoy, year after year after year.
