2009 Honda CRF50F
Meet the CRF50F, not only one of the greatest entry-level off-road bikes ever made, but also one of the most popular. In fact, thousands and thousands of kids (maybe even you, Dad or Mom?) can call this rugged, 49cc dynamo – featuring a beginner-friendly automatic clutch and low seat height – their first Honda. And one ride was all it took to know it wasn’t their last.
Featuring an inverted fork, 49cc four-stroke engine, automatic clutch and three-speed gearbox, it’s no wonder this little Honda CRF50F has been the model of choice for beginning riders the world over for more than 40 years.
