Availability: October, 2013. There’s a good reason Honda’s CRF50F is probably the world’s most popular beginner bike. A whole bunch of great reasons, actually. First, its bulletproof engine develops the kind of smooth, easy-to-use power first-timers really need. Its three-speed transmission with automatic clutch is newbie-friendly, and its tough suspension stands up to the use (and abuse!) of first-time riders. The CRF50F has features like an adjustable throttle limiter so you can tailor the power to your rider’s skills. That kind of thoughtful engineering, long-term overall quality and a whole lot more are what make the CRF50F a Honda.

Since it made its debut over a decade ago, the CRF50F has received only small upgrades. Most of them aimed the style and ergonomics departments ,so the year 2014 doesn’t bring any major upgrades either.
But this is not as bad as it sounds, as the motorcycle didn’t actually need any massive improvements. Its 49 cc engine is perfect for learning the secrets of dirt riding, while the suspensions and brakes are also perfectly suited for the purpose of this compact motorcycle.
You’ll also like the user-friendly automatic transmission and the adjustable throttle limiter. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the engine is extremely low maintenance and not high-strung in order to last a long time.
