The Honda CRF 110F is the second smallest dirt bike in the Honda lineup. Most people start their kids out on the Honda CRF 50F and then transition to this bike. They don’t transition to this bike because it’s a natural progression, they transition to this bike because it’s the only thing Honda has to offer. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a terrible bike, but I don’t love it since it is so big, wide, and heavy. Your kid will be much, much too big on their Honda 50 before they can feel comfortable on this bike. I just think there should be a middle ground between the 50 and the 110 in the Honda lineup.
Once you are able to get past the size and your kid gets a little taller and a little stronger, this bike will treat them right on the trails. It has electric start, which is really nice for my daughter because she has the confidence that she can start it on her own. It has a back up kickstarter which make me very happy for when the kids leave the key on and the battery goes dead (like every time). This little bike has no clutch, and a 4 speed semi-auto transmission to pull the kids around. The motor must have been adapted from some sort of lawn tractor application because not only does it have a ton of torque, it’s also far wider than I’d like it to be. With the motor being very wide, it’s not a narrow platform any any means. The result is that your kids will have a harder time touching the ground with both feet until they get a bit taller.
This certainly isn’t a racing bike. It is a trail bike. It works fine for my 11-12 year old daughter, but my boys (6 and 9) are far more aggressive riders than her. With that being the case, I’m looking for other alternatives for them like used KTM 50s (2 strokes with about the same seat height). This bike came in at 161 lbs. That is disappointing since some of the full frame size 125cc dirt bikes are around 200 lbs.
