CRF50F – the beginning of the dream…

What better way for your youngster to enter the exciting world of motorcycling than aboard a CRF50F? Like so many before, your young rider will benefit from the user-friendly design that includes light weight, low seat height, automatic clutch and low effort controls. An adjustable throttle limiter and keyed ignition let you control the rate your youngster learns. And parents you can also take comfort in the resale value that comes with Honda durability and reliability when its time for the budding motorcyclist to graduate to a larger model. Their first motorcycle is probably their most important motorcycle, so start them out right, start them on a Honda.

The World’s Best Beginner Bike

How many thousands of beginners have had their first taste of motorcycling on a Honda 50? Hundreds of thousands, for sure. And it’s easy to understand why. The CRF50F offers up an unbeatable combination: Its bulletproof engine develops smooth, easy-to-use power, a three-speed transmission with automatic clutch, and a tough suspension that stands up to youthful enthusiasm. And for adults, the CRF50F makes sense too: an adjustable throttle limiter lets you tailor the power to the appropriate skill level, and the proven reliability means more time riding and less time taken up by maintenance and repairs.

Important Safety Information: Parents need to consider their youngster’s age, size, ability and maturity before allowing them to ride. Designed exclusively for off-road operator-only use. Always wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing whenever you ride. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Always obtain written permission before riding on private land. Whenever you ride off-road, follow the “Tread Lightly” guidelines, and always keep on established trails in approved riding areas. Use common sense, keep your riding area clean, respect the rights of others when you ride, and never modify your motorcycle’s silencer, exhaust system, or spark arrestor.

Details that Make a Difference.

The automatic clutch not only makes riding easier, it can handle youth-induced abuse. Other features like its maintenance-free CD ignition, automatic cam-chain tensioner, rugged steel frame and tough bodywork make the CRF50F less hassle for you. And finally, the keyed ignition lets you decide who rides, and when.



2015 Honda CRF50F Key Features

•Maintenance-free CD ignition and automatic cam-chain tensioner simplify maintenance.
•13 mm piston-valve carburetor offers excellent fuel mileage and throttle response throughout the rpm range
•Inverted telescopic fork offers a plush 87 mm (3.4 inches) of suspension travel.
•Small-size control levers enhance young rider comfort and confidence.

Honda Tough. Honda Smart.

If there’s ever a bike that needs a durable, reliable, low-maintenance engine, it’s a bike like this. And nobody can match Honda’s reputation for trouble-free operation.

Stay In Control.

Parents understand their children like nobody else. That’s why the CRF50F has a parent-friendly adjustable throttle limiter, so you can decide how much power your rider can use. It’s simple for you to adjust too.

Nothing’s Easier.

The CRF50F’s automatic clutch makes learning easier, because young riders never have to worry about stalling or a handlebar-mounted clutch lever. They just shift gears with their toe when they’re ready.
