2006 Honda CRF150F


The mid-size Honda CRF150F features the same easy-to-manage power and legendary Honda performance as it always has. But new for 2006, it’s getting even better - with a new engine and the addition of an electric starter. Family riding has never been this fun and this easy.

Hailed as the ideal ride for off-road adventure, the CRF150F redefines fun in 2006 thanks to an all-new engine with push-button electric starting, new transmission ratios and new suspension settings that provide even better handling.

When Honda redesigned its XR100R, it made a big stink of how heavy the TT-R125 was. But now that it has shown its hand, Honda has basically said, "We’ll call your 20 pounds and raise you 20 pounds." At a claimed 218 pounds, the CRF150 weighs 16 pounds more than the full-sized Honda CR125R motocrosser and nearly the same as the CR250R. When the 150 was parked next to the Suzuki Suzuki DR-Z125L, it dwarfed it. In spite of those facts, we asked five-foot-two-inch Nick Nowak, Chad Hartley and five-foot-three Stacy Bremner to be our test riders. Nick and Chad normally ride Honda CR80Rs, and Stacy races a Yamaha Yamaha YZ125 in the women’s novice class. Naturally, we couldn’t keep the dads at bay, so we had pilots as heavy as 220 pounds on the bike as well.

All were impressed with the solid feel of the chassis and the stable handling. Chad and Nick (at less than 90 pounds) felt the 150 was a great trailbike and much more forgiving on the hills with its torquey power delivery. Chad even spent a good deal of time on the mini motocross track at Hungry Valley OHV’s Quail Canyon. In the morning when the track was freshly plowed he noticed the weight, but as the track wore in, he felt he could go every bit as fast as he could on his 80. He said bottoming wasn’t a problem either. The boys also thought the reach to the ground on the 150 with its 16/19-inch wheel combo was roughly the same as on their small-wheel (14/17-inch) 80s.The CRF150F is a lot more motorcycle than Honda’s XR100R was, and it raises the bar in the class. If weight isn’t an issue, then the CRF is a winner.

Compared with the new wave of improved 125cc four-stroke playbikes, the CRF150F is more serious in almost every way. It has a larger displacement, bigger riding position and aluminum rims in addition to a larger fork. Weight is the only penalty it pays.
