How many thousands of beginners have had their first taste of motorcycling on a Honda 50? Hundreds of thousands, for sure. And it’s easy to understand why. The CRF50F offers up an unbeatable combination: Its bulletproof engine develops smooth, easy-to-use power, a three-speed transmission with automatic clutch, and a tough suspension that 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.

Details that Make a Difference.
The automatic clutch not only makes riding easier, it can handle youth-induced abuse. Other features like its maintenance-free CD ignition, automatic cam-chain tensioner, rugged steel frame and tough bodywork make the CRF50F less hassle for you. And finally, the keyed ignition lets you decide who rides, and when.

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 your kids can’t ride without an adult’s supervision. Kids 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. That cuts down on frustration and hassles.

Automatic Clutch
There’s no clutch lever for new riders to master, and that means no stalling. In addition, the smooth transmission offers three gear ratios. All you do is shift with your foot.

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.
