2017 Honda CRF150R Expert

Winners start early.

If you’re lucky, your parents used sports or other competitive activities to teach you a lot about life. How to focus. How to set long-term goals. How to train. And how to bring your best every time. At Honda, we get it. And that’s why we build the CRF150R, a machine that’s designed to give smaller-stature racers every advantage they need to succeed. Designed around a four-stroke powerplant that showcases plenty of Honda technology, it’s also graced with the performance that will keep you up at the front of the pack and on the podium. And to fit a wider variety of riders, the CRF150R is also 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.
  • UNICAM® ENGINE: The CRF150R uses a Unicam engine based on our championship-winning CRF450R and CRF250R. Designed to give you excellent rideability and more power and torque across the rev range, the engine runs consistently at different tracks and varying elevations and temperatures—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 37mm 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.
