The 2021 CRF50F is Where it All Begins

Honda Motorcycles has been responsible for maintaining the most sold 50cc dirt bike for a number of years now. Based on the CRF50F’s features, it is simply the best choice for introducing a new prospective rider to motorcycling. Though it’s nothing new to the 2021 Honda lineup, it will continue to be the first step in bringing little people into the motorcycle world.

The 2021 CRF50F comes in a “cute” size but it packs everything a new rider needs to create a successful rider. Like other small displaced Japanese motorcycles, the CRF50F comes with an adjustable throttle, three-speed automatic transmission, and keyed ignition. These are pivotal features on a bike that is the bridge into motorcycling.

The Honda CRF50F features an automatic clutch to help new riders learn to shift. This helps break down the basics of riding and helps each rider focus on the principles of motorcycling. If you’re looking for a bike for your little tyke – the CRF50F is the bike to start them out on.

The 2021 Honda CRF50F starts at $1,599 USD / $1,999 CAD.

2021 Honda CRF50F Features



If there’s one thing you can count on with a Honda, it’s the engine. The CRF50F’s Honda four-stroke is famously reliable. That cuts down on frustration and hassles.



A removable key helps ensure younger riders can’t ride without an adult’s supervision. Got their homework done early? Let’s go riding!



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.

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.



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.
