Honda CRF150R Review

The Honda CRF150R comes with 149cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine. The CRF150R engine produces smooth torque all through the different speed levels, ensuring the rider gets enough power when needed.

CRF150R qualifies as a perfect junior bike for young riders who wish to improve their riding skills. It’s powerful, perfectly balanced, and upholds Honda’s famous reliability. Read on.

Honda CRF150R Top Speed: 70mph (113 Km)

Honda CRF150R Seat Height: 32.8 (833 mm)

Age Range

The Honda CRF150R is primarily a racing bike for kids aged 12-16. It’s Honda’s only kids’ motocross bike.

The standard, small wheel model works best for a 12-year-old, while the Expert, big wheel model is ideal for kids aged 14-16. But don’t just consider your kid’s age while buying it. It can still be big or small for them.

While there’s no actual weight limit, CRF150R is perfect for riders weighing 80-120 pounds.


The bike powers electrically but starts effortlessly with a kick. However, due to the tall build of CRF150R, it can be challenging for the petite rider to kickstart. Once it’s on, the bike purrs instantly, ready for takeoff.

Just by the crack of the throttle, the bike flies ferociously, producing a mean exhaust sound to match the quickness. While this is a beginner bike, it’s not a play bike because it takes the slightest throttle and snaps away.

 It would be best to learn some decent clutch control to tame down this bike. You’d wish to ride CRF150R in your hood but take note of noise pollution of about 95-96 decibels.

Accelerator Pump

The accelerator pump for CRF150R has a “direct push .” Compared to the other accelerator pumps of CRF450R and CRF250R, this direct push provides a better and more responsive throttle reaction.

Pricing and Competition

You can choose your ideal version of CRF150R in the US. The CRF150R goes against Kawasaki KX450, Yamaha YZ450F, Husqvarana FC 450 and KTM 450 SX-F.
