Amazingly versatile, anvil-tough and used by everyone from beginners to world champions to hone their riding skills, the CRF100F remains the best selling off-road bike of all time.

Honda CRF History

The Honda CRF series is a line of four-stroke motocross motorcycles manufactured and marketed by Honda.

The CRF line was launched in 2002, both as a successor to the Honda XR series and a replacement for the two-stroke Honda CR Series. The full sized motocross bikes are equipped with liquid-cooled, single-cylinder four-stroke engines that are available from 249 cc to 449 cc. The entry-level CRF’s have simple air-cooled engines, and are available from 50 cc to 230 cc.

The Honda CRF450R was the first in the series,

Test Ride

Honda CRF100F

This Bike is Really Awesome!!! I took this bike out on a 10 acres of hills, creeks, dirt, jumps, and slick mud...AND IT HANDLED IT LIKE ALL THAT WASN’T EVEN THERE!! This bike handles steep hills like nothing also. I love this bike. It has great suspension, makes the hardest trails seem like a flat bit of ground, and it’s not only fun for off road. Riding it at the track is great. It may not be as fast as the other bikes in the motercross bracket, but it still can keep up with the pack.

Complaints?

- This bike has a very short 1st gear and then second gear is a kick but it is still great with acceleration.

Conclusion

It’s a great beginner bike for children and adults. I would definitely recommend it for beginners looking for a good bike. Honda’s the best name you can buy!! CRF100F is wonderful.
