2018 Honda CRF50F

Get Them Started Right.

Getting the right start makes all the difference in life: eating the right food, going to the right school, learning the right lessons, establishing the right values. It’s no different when it comes to motorcycling. Starting a rider off early introduces them to something they can enjoy forever. And starting them off right pays dividends for decades to come.

So when it’s time to get your young rider on his or her first bike, make sure you choose a machine that gives them all the advantages. And for hundreds of thousands of riders, the best choice is a Honda CRF50F.

The CRF50F offers up an ideal 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.

Your kids will remember their first motorcycle forever. And there’s no better way to make those good memories than by putting them on a Honda CRF50F.

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.


  • ADJUSTABLE THROTTLE LIMITER: Set the top speed by turning a screw. That helps keep new riders from going too fast, too soon, and lets you match the CRF50F's power output to the rider's skill level.
  • KEYED IGNITION: A removable key helps ensure younger riders can’t ride without an adult’s supervision. Got their homework done early? Let’s go riding!
  • DURABLE, LOW-MAINTENANCE ENGINE: If there’s one thing you can count on with a Honda, it’s the engine. The CRF50F Honda four-stroke engine is famously reliable. That cuts down on frustration and hassles.
  • RUGGED STEEL FRAME: New riders are hard on equipment, especially when they’re just starting out. That’s why the CRF50F uses a strong steel frame that’s built to handle the bumps and dings of off-road riding.
  • AUTOMATIC CLUTCH: Because there's no clutch lever to master, new riders don’t have to worry about stalling. That makes the CRF50F the perfect tool for learning to shift. In addition, the smooth transmission offers three gear ratios.
