2019 Honda CRF150R

Winning Starts From Day One.

Get off to the right start, and you have a huge advantage. It’s true in racing, where the holeshot counts for everything, and it’s true in life, where the lessons your kids learn early turn them into the adults they’ll become. That’s why parents work so hard to give their kids every advantage they can. And if you’re talking about teaching your youngster to focus, set goals, and win on the track, they need a machine that works just as hard at it as you do. And when it comes to motocross, that bike is Honda’s CRF150R.

The CRF150R is designed to put your Red Rider up front and into the winners circle. It’s not an off-road bike with a low seat height; it’s a serious competition machine tailor-made for young racers. Designed around a single-cylinder Honda Unicam engine, it offers all the performance your riders need to win. Put them on the wrong bike, and they’ll get frustrated. Let them taste the champagne (or maybe the sparkling apple juice), and they’ll learn to apply themselves on the track and later in life. Sounds like a no brainer to us.

Plus, since the right-sized bike is critical, to fit a wider variety of riders, we also make the CRF150R available in a second version: the CRF150R Expert, featuring bigger wheels, a higher seat and longer swingarm.


  • REAR DISC BRAKE: The rear disc brake provides powerful, precise braking.
  • PRO-LINK REAR SUSPENSION: The CRF150R’s Pro-Link rear-suspension system features a fully adjustable Showa shock for superb bump absorption and wheel control.
  • TRACK-DESIGNED CHASSIS: A lightweight, high-tensile steel frame with large-diameter frame tubing and crossmember delivers excellent turning performance and straight-line tracking.
  • BIG-BIKE MX GRAPHICS: The CRF150R features clean, bold, bright graphics that look like our CRF450R’s. Look like a pro, ride like a pro.
  • UNICAM ENGINE: The CRF150R uses a Unicam engine based on our championship-winning CRF450R. Designed to give you excellent rideability and more power and torque across the rev range, the engine runs consistently at different tracks—it’s an all-around winner.
  • ACCELERATOR PUMP: The CRF150R uses a carburetor featuring a “direct push” accelerator pump which gives you better, more immediate throttle response.
  • SHOWA SUSPENSION: The adjustable 37 mm leading-axle inverted Showa cartridge fork features specially tuned valving for small bumps and a friction-reducing design to improve compression and rebound control.
  • FRONT DISC BRAKE: The front disc brake provides powerful, precise braking.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT WHEELS: Strong, lightweight wheels are durable and minimize unsprung weight.
