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 tough, reliable engine develops smooth, easy-to-use power; three-speed transmission with automatic clutch; and 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.
Be A Responsible Rider: All parents need to consider their youngsters’ age, size, ability and maturity before allowing them to ride. Obtain a copy of “Off-Road Safety Tips” from your local Honda Dealer.
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 the needs of younger riders 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.
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.
