Honda CRF 150 And CRF 230 – Motocross Bike — Review – Dirt Magazine

Thursday, June 24,

If you’ve been riding a paper bag over your you might not have noticed dirt bikes are totally hot at the moment. Even if you pride on your powers of perception, free to forgive yourself for not that playbikes are the fastest-growing in dirt riding.

When introduced its TT-R125, it called the sales numbers the “invisible The tally on the bikes is huge, but if you are a and dedicated rider, chances are you riding where these new riders are adventuring into the TT-R125 was a sales home run motivated Honda to upgrade the XR100R, and Suzuki (and, their alliance, Kawasaki) with the DR-Z125. The revamped was too little too late, though, so embarked on a two-pronged ….

For both the TT-R and the DR-Z/KLX, the versions are the hot sellers, so Honda a performance … on that in the form of the CRF150F, then Big Red the XR200R–the best small-bore made–with the CRF230F. These capitalize on the looks of the factory MXers and are packed with and performance. The powerplants in both bear a strong family to the XR200R engine, but it is only a

The motors top anything in the category and the same is true of the chassis. bikes still aren’t the two-… chassis/four-… trail combos the Langtown loonies and BBR have been asking but they are the closest thing the factories yet. CRF150F Honda redesigned its XR100R, it a big stink of how heavy the TT-R125

But now that it has shown its hand, has basically said, “We’ll your 20 pounds and raise you 20 At a claimed 218 pounds, the CRF150 16 pounds more than the Honda CR125R motocrosser and the same as the CR250R. When the 150 was next to the Suzuki DR-Z125L, it it. In spite of those facts, we five-foot-two-inch Nick Nowak, Hartley and five-foot-three Stacy to be our test riders.

Nick and normally ride Honda and Stacy races a Yamaha in the women’s novice class. we couldn’t keep the dads at so we had pilots as heavy as 220 pounds on the as well.All were impressed the solid feel of the chassis and the handling. Chad and Nick (at than 90 pounds) felt the 150 was a trailbike and much more on the hills with its torquey delivery.

Chad even spent a deal of time on the mini track at Hungry Valley Quail Canyon. In the morning the track was freshly plowed he the weight, but as the track wore in, he he could go every bit as fast as he on his 80. He said bottoming wasn’t a either.

The boys also the reach to the ground on the 150 with its wheel combo was roughly the as on their small-wheel (14/17-inch) CRF150F is a lot more motorcycle Honda’s XR100R was, and it the bar in the class. If weight isn’t an then the CRF is a winner. CRF230F a day on the CRF230F, Stacy decided she was with her YZ125, but she still the 230F’s power and handling.

She just wanted more she’s a pretty serious We also had some regular pilots like Maya ride the CRF. It doesn’t whether you have the late-model 200 or the earlier one with long the 230F has more controlled and a much more solid and chassis. Engine performance roughly the same; then weight is close to 240 pounds–heavier the Honda CRF450R and 15 pounds up on the old

The seat height is very low for a with full-size 18/21-inch though, and most riders the electric start was worth its 230 fills a gulf between the four-strokes and the 250 off-road thumpers has been occupied only by the far pedestrian Yamaha TT-R225. The has a great motor and the magic but that comes with ergonomics and weak suspension in a package. Clearly the Honda is the for more serious riders.

The 230 has a far seat height and a lower than any of the 250 trail-oriented four-strokes and matches weight with the Kawasaki KDX200/220. The KDXs are far and more serious bikes, but are a bit limited in appeal for short We predict the CRF230F will be a winner as well.
