Give Them a Great Start…

The smallest Honda in the CRF line, the CRF50F is great for introducing the youngest riders to the world of motorcycling. The easy-to-use power delivery from the durable and low-maintenance 49cc air-cooled four-stroke engine has been putting smiles on children’s faces for generations. A smooth, three-speed transmission and automatic clutch prevent stalls and allow riders to focus on fun. There’s also an adjustable throttle limiter so parents can control the maximum power output without limiting the amount of enjoyment.

For decades, Honda has offered a full line of off-road bikes stair-cased in size and displacement to meet the specific needs of riders just entering the sport. The renowned CRF50F has long served as an incredibly suitable and efficient first step for beginning riders thanks to a strong and tough 49cc four-stroke engine, automatic clutch and three-speed gearbox, plus an inverted fork, and its small overall size and light weight simplify transport. With credentials like these, it’s no wonder the dependable CRF50F has been the bike of choice for beginners for more than 40 years.


Let the adventure begin

Perfect starter for juniors.

The CRF50F – Honda’s longest-running off road model. With its key operated ignition, opens the door to endless thrills and excitement for aspiring young riders.

 

The start of the adventure

Some are lucky enough to discover it from an early age.

Easy to start, easy to use, and always fun. Widely recognised as the quintessential mini bike, the CRF50F is the choice of first-time riders the world over. Its inverted fork, 49cc engine, easy-shifting gearbox with automatic clutch and low seat height make the CRF50F a cinch to ride. Built strong and solid, with big bike styling and racy new graphics, this CRF will soon have the fun meters of the smallest riders in the family running red – Honda red.

 

Control from the start

Honda’s rugged range of CRF-F recreational bikes give easy riding confidence to young riders.

A young rider needs confidence from day one. So we’ve made the CRF50F easy for the junior rider to get along with. It’s easy to start, just turn a key and hit the button. It’s easy to ride with a dependable, strong #420 chain and, it’s easy to stop with powerful front and rear drum brakes.

Our team colour

The CRF50F is a bike with tough race-inspired graphics from the awesome CRF-R range, with a reliable air-cooled engine powered by a maintenance-free Capacitor Discharge ignition (CDI). There’s no better place to start than here.


Every journey starts with the first step.

Bet you remember your first motorcycle ride like it was yesterday. Bikes are a great part of life—they make everything a little more fun and a little more memorable. So when it’s time to get your young Red Rider on his or her first bike, make sure you pick a machine they’ll have nothing but great memories on: A Honda CRF50F.

The CRF50F offers up an unbeatable combination of features: Its tough, reliable four-stroke engine develops smooth, easy-to-use power. Its three-speed transmission uses an automatic clutch, so a rider learns to shift, but never has to worry about stalling. Its tough suspension 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.


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 foot when they’re ready.
