2012 Honda Motorcycles
Honda may place much emphasis on all-out performance dirt bikes such as the CRF 450 R, but the Japanese marquee continues to cater to the play-bike scene.
For 2012, Honda returns with the CRF230 F and the CRF150 F, both motorcycles featuring electric start. The CRF230F is designed for maintenance-free, all-day fun and off-road adventure.

If there’s one thing Honda has helped foster over the years it’s a positive and fun attitude toward riding, helping to inspire countless dreams and give budding enthusiasts a range of bikes to enter the support and evolve as a rider.
Trey Canard, 2011 Honda CRF 450 R Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross rider, got a brief first taste of professional racing at the end of the ’07 motocross season, and his three subsequent years of full-time competition have not only honed his racing skills but also made him a champion twice over.
To secure the appropriate riding pal for everybody in the clan, perhaps your family should meet the Honda CRF family of dirt bikes geared to every age and skill level. Each member is loaded with cool features and powered by a single-cylinder, four-stroke engine with chain final drive.
If the old racing adage, “what wins on Sunday sells on Monday,” carries any truth, there must have been a lot of foot traffic in Honda dealers this year. Riding the CRF450R, Honda rider Ricky Carmichael did the unthinkable, winning every race of the 2004 AMA National Motocross Championship—a perfect season. Anyone who knows the level of talent and the caliber of machines that line up at the starting gate each weekend at those races understands the statement Honda has made with their race-bred 450cc 4-stroke.
