Honda launched the CRF line of motorcycles in 2002 as the successor to the XR series while retiring the two-stroke CR series. The 2013 Honda CRF lineup includes bikes that Honda classifies as Dual Sport, Trail and Motocross. Each motorcycle in the 2013 lineup is powered by a four-stroke, single-cylinder engine and is available in red.
2013 Honda CRF Motocross Models
Honda has three CRF models in its 2013 Motocross lineup. All three feature liquid-cooled, single-cylinder four-stroke engines. The two larger models come equipped with fuel injection.
The granddaddy of the CRF line gets some major upgrades. The new twin-spar aluminum frame along with a new KYB PSF (Pneumatic Spring Fork) suspension and short dual mufflers combine to put the focus on a low center of gravity. The new front fork is almost two pounds lighter than previous versions while allowing for a larger 32 mm cartridge damper piston. Also new on the 2013 Honda CRF450R is the single shock Pro-Link rear suspension with 12.5 inches of travel, new bodywork, seat and larger capacity (1.66 gallon) fuel tank. Base MSRP on the CRF450R is $8,440.
The winner of both the Supercross Lites East and West SX championships in 2012, the CRF250R gets several improvements for 2013. Honda recalibrated the fuel injection to make the engine on the CRF250R more responsive through the low and midrange ends of the powerband. New generation Dunlop Geomax MX51 tires front and rear give the CRF250R improved traction. Base MSRP comes in at $7,420.
Designed for smaller riders and those new to Motocross, the CRF150R features the same styling cues as its bigger brothers, along with a Keihin 32 mm carburetor. Base MSRP on the CRF150R is $4,990.
2013 Honda CRF Dual Sport Models
Honda has only one 2013 CRF model (so far) in the Dual Sport category.
Brand new for 2013, the Honda CRF250L features street legal components like head and tail lights, turn indicators and mirrors. Its digital instrumentation, integrated into the headlight visor, includes a speedometer, fuel gauge, clock and twin tripmeters. Though street legal, the CRF250L is made for off road use, mimicking the styling of its Motocross brothers. The CRF250L has a six-speed transmission and 249 cc air-cooled, fuel injected, single-cylinder four-stroke engine. Base MSRP on the 2013 Honda CRF250L is $4,499.
2013 Honda CRF Trail Models
Honda bills these motorcycles as entry level or youth off-road bikes. One brand new model joins the lineup for the 2013 model year. All of these models are powered by air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engines.
New for 2013 the CRF110F replaces the entry level CRF70F. The CRF110F is built for new riders with features like a low 26.3 inch seat height, four-speed transmission with automatic clutch, throttle limiter and an electric starter. The CRF110F also has a kick starter. It’s light enough for even smaller riders with a curb weight of 163 pounds. Base MSRP on the 2013 Honda CRF110F is $1,999.
CRF80F, CRF100F and CRF230F
Honda includes three more Trail models under the CRF family for the 2013 model year, each a little bigger to provide older beginners and experienced riders with a model that suits their size and capabilities. They all have manual clutches while the CRF80F and CRF100F have five-speed transmissions. The CRF230F has a six-speed tranny. Base MSRP on the 2013 models are: CRF80F, $2,470. CRF100F, $2,880. CRF230F, $4,170.
