Honda has been known for making some of the industries best all around recreational vehicles and the cr 85 does not fall short of that at all. The Cr85 and the cr85 expert are great entry levle race bikes it was my first and if i hadnt of outgrown it Id still have it. The bike never let me down it also has mind blowing performance from the suspension to the motor it is built tough. The powerful 84.7cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder two-stroke engine is scary fast especially for a youngster like i was their for id really reccomend this bike to a kid who has had some experience under his or her belt. The cr 85 does not only have great power but a light weight of 144lbs to manuever that power and with the six speed close ratio transmission you can switch gears with confidence. The Cr85 comes equipped with showa fors and rear shock for a sporty ride. I can truely say honda did it again.
