What are the different CRF designations?

Looking at some used bikes for my daughter and am finding CRF 150, CRF 150F, CRF 150R and CRF 150RE's. What the hell is the difference between the designations? I can't find the differences online. Thanks

Thought all CRF's were 4 strokes. The CR's are 2 strokes I know that. Or maybe it was changed over when they dropped the XR

CRF150 - nothing.

CRF150F - Brazilian manufactured 150cc air-cooled 2-valve bike with steel frame and 1980's suspension technology. Weighs as much as a full sized enduro bike, built like a tank and as durable. IIRC, about 8 horsepower.

CRF150R - Mini MX bike, as in "Scaled down CRF250R". 17" front/14" rear wheels, aluminum perimeter frame, modern suspension and 4-valve liquid cooled engine.

CRF150RE - Same as the "R" version, but "E" stands for expert and gets you 19" front/17" rear wheels and more travel.

Honda did not ever make a 150cc 2-stroke production bike that I'm aware of. KTM may be the only one. Anyway, I know this info because I studied the crap out of it before buying my wife her first bike: 2003 CRF150F


She's since moved on to a CRF250X that is modified a bit.

Scooter beat me to it! Damnit.


And for future references if you don't know what a bike model is don't take a guess that it may be a 2 stroke....

Only because I saw it and had the info still lodged in my brain. The R model came out right after we picked up the F. I was just a little miffed.

Give me some info. I'm definately going to buy one within the next week. Pretty interested in a couple CRF 150R's that I've found. I also found an RB. What the hell would the B be for?

The B should stand for the big wheel version. At least that's how Honda did it with the previous CR80's.
