The 2021 CRF150R is for Future Champions

 

Honda Motorcycles has released the 2021 CRF150R and it is available in both standard or big wheel (Expert) sizing. The Expert version of this Japanese motorcycle is geared towards taller riders, offering larger wheels, seat height, and suspension travel.

The CRF150R is Honda’s smallest motocrosser in the 2021 Honda lineup but it still comes with the performance features of the larger motocross bikes such as Showa suspension that is comprised of 37mm inverted forks and a single Showa shock in the rear. It comes powered by a 149cc liquid-cooled four-stroke Unicam engine. The CRF150R’s engine delivers a smooth torque throughout the rev range giving the rider exactly the power they need when they need it.

It is the perfect bike for junior motocrossers looking to upgrade their ride to match their skills. It’s powerful, well balanced, and maintains Honda’s known reliability.

The 2021 Honda CRF150R starts at $5,399 USD / $6,449 CAD.

    Hi ya Mak….are you certain about the specs you’ve documented above? According to Honda’s site, the 150R is:

    1) Kick Start, not Electric;
    2) Carb’d, not EFI; and
    3) Fuel Capacity is 1.1 gal, not 2.0 gal

    Can you confirm or deny?
    Thanks!

      I hav a 2019,being a race bike(150R) its kick start only🙂is carburated with an accelerator pump 🙂 holds enough gas for a half day of fun on 94 octane, at 11.7:1 compression you don’t want anything less. Note: if you are planning on trail riding you will need to bump up the slow jet from stock for a more reliable idle and hot start, it’s a 149cc of awesomeness 🙂
