2008 Honda CRF150F

For off-road fun, nothing beats the electric-start CRF150F. Big enough to keep experienced adults entertained but small and light for beginning riders, the CRF150F is the darling of the off-road enthusiast press.

Boasting most of the same premium features as the CRF230F, the CRF150F is ready and willing to go just about anywhere the big bikes can. But its smaller wheels, shorter seat height and more-compact ergonomics ensure that learning riders won’t feel intimidated as they gain experience. A 149 cc air-cooled four-stroke engine delivers its power smoothly, with lots of torque for easy takeoffs and no sudden surges as the revs rise. For 2008 the CRF150F gets a slimmer and lower seat and fuel tank for improved comfort and lighter handing feel, plus new handgrips and revised suspension settings.

Smooth, easy-to-use power, plush suspension and responsive handling make the CRF150F full-sized off-road fun in a mid-size package. With electric starting, a five-speed, manual-shift gearbox, new, narrower seat, fuel tank, and dependable 149cc four-stroke engine, it’s the ideal machine for recreational riders, teen-size to grown-up.
