its not like the honda crf150r .... its a full size bike... .with a potent motor. Just shooting from the hip....If he's 5'5" or bigger ...with some really good riding skills...MAYBE....

if he is big and heavy....maybe a CRF150r...small wheel or big wheel (again if he's tall). Even that bike (either model) are really ment for a well seasoned older rider. You should go down to the cycle shop and have him sit a on few and lean towards a "non-race" versions if he is a beginner.

KTM 105 id say.

if hes that quick he should be able to handle the 105 and it will have much more pull than anything ull get before a full sized bike. he will have to race I think its Open mini, or Senior Mini with this one though, if hes podiuming in the 65s though he should do ok.

85 would be the next logical step but if he's big for his age a KTM 105 might be a good next step. That 150 will be way too powerful!

I agree with the post above stating the this bike is too much for an 8 y/o no matter how big or how good he may ride. If you move you child too quickly to larger bikes they will get hurt, not become better, this is from experience. The a KX 85, YZ85, KTM 85 or possibly a KTM 105, KX100, all would be better choices. Get the suspension done for his weight and ability, then look at the motor. The KTM 105 has the best stock engine and suspension.
