2008 Honda CRF80F

For young riders ready to step up to a manual clutch machine, the CRF80F features Honda’s legendary reliability, big-bike styling, nimble handling and wonderfully balanced performance.

As the smallest member of the CRF family to come with a five-speed transmission and manual clutch, the CRF80F is fully equipped to teach learning riders the skills they’ll need as they grow. With most of the same great features as the CRF100F, but with slightly smaller wheels and a lower seat height, the CRF80F is the perfect fit for riders who have grown out of the minibike stage. Its responsive 80 cc four-stroke engine delivers power smoothly, and the easy-pulling clutch lever will have your young rider shifting through the five-speed gearbox in no time at all.

Is your youngster ready to move up to the next level, where big-bike features—like five-speed shifting with a manual clutch—will help take them up to the next step of the off-road learning curve? Then check out the CRF80F, loaded with plenty of power, performance, and Honda’s legendary four-stroke reliability, making it the perfect tool for the young rider who’s ready to hone his or her off-road skills to a finer edge.
