2016 Honda CRF150F

Just slightly smaller than a full-size dirt bike, the 2016 Honda CRF150F has a fairly long-travel suspension—9 inches on each end—along with a 19-inch front wheel and 16-inch rear.

Seat height is a manageable 32.5 inches while the weight is a relatively substantial 236 pounds wet. Fired up by an electric starter, the nearly square 149cc motor is docile when necessary, yet still capable to taking an appropriate-sized rider on any trail.

The SOHC motor is air-cooled and has just two-valves, making it simply, highly reliable, and very low maintenance. Even experienced riders can have fun on the CRF150F, as they can throw it around at will, and it makes highly technical trails quite fun due to its lowish seat height.
