2014 Honda CRF150F

Posted on by  

The Honda CRF150F is placed exactly between the full-sized motorcycles designed for adults and their smaller siblings aimed at the growing teenagers.

Like the previous generation, the 2014 version is powered by an air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke, SOHC, two valve engine. The unit is brought to life by an electric starter and is paired with a five-speed transmission.

In terms of suspensions, the 2014 Honda CRF150F is equipped with a front, 35mm Showa fork ( 9.1 inches of wheel travel) and a rear Showa single-shock absorber (8.9 inches travel).

The motorcycle’s speed is kept under control by a single, 240 mm front disc and a rear drum brake. You also get a 1.9 gallons fuel tank including 0.4-gallon reserve and a maintenance-free sealed battery.

The 2014 Honda CRF150F is available in a Red and white paint scheme and comes with six months warranty.

Verdict

Its smooth and compact engine makes it the ideal bike to consider before moving on to larger capacity machinery. On the dirty tracks it feels fairly agile, and despite its relatively heavy weight (judged by two stroke standards) is pretty easy to handle.
