2009 Honda CRF70F
While the CRF80F is generally considered the ideal bridge between Honda’s CRF50F mini and our larger-displacement off-roaders, the CRF70F holds a rather unique spot in our trailbike family. Perhaps your budding MX star is a bit too big for the 50 – or maybe he or she just needs a bigger bike that still features an easy-to-use automatic clutch and dependably smooth four-stroke power. Sound about right? Then the CRF70F is the machine for you.
The CRF70F serves as a great introduction to off-road motorcycling, thanks to its automatic clutch, low seat height, three-speed transmission, and low-maintenance 72cc air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine.
