While there are a number of smaller off-roading bikes on the market today, no model combines unique specifications with the quality riding experience that the 2009 Honda CRF 50F does. For younger dirt bike riders of all skill levels, the 2009 Honda CRF 50F is the motorcycle they’re going to want to get their hands on.
As a matter of fact, this bike was designed for exactly that: young riders looking to experience the thrill of hopping on a motorcycle for the first time. With that in mind, the Honda CRF 50F is a smaller bike overall, with a seat height of just 21.6 inches and a curb weight of 104 pounds, making it easy to maneuver for riders of all skill levels. Also, with just 5.8 inches of ground clearance, the 2009 Honda CRF 50F allows for easy access onto and off of the bike, for smaller riders.
Still, despite its small stature, the Honda CRF 50F packs a powerful punch once it does hit the dirt. The 2009 CRF 50F comes equipped with a four-stroke, single-cylinder engine, which is air-cooled and has an SOHC valve configuration. Plus, with a carburetor fuel system, the bike gets excellent gas mileage on the dirt, despite a fuel capacity of just 0.7 gallons. With younger riders in mind, Honda designed the bike with a three-speed automatic transmission and kick start.
Beyond its powerful engine, the Honda CRF 50F also has a number of features that allow for a safe and balanced drive, regardless of the terrain. This motorcycle comes with a pair of tubed, steel wheels that, when combined with two 2.5 x 10 tires, provides good maneuverability, even on rough surfaces. Should the driver need to come to a quick stop, the bike is equipped with both front and rear drum brakes.
Speaking of a smooth ride, the Honda CRF 50F’s suspension and steering are as good as any small bike on the market, creating a comfortable drive for riders. The motorcycle comes equipped with an inverted fork suspension on the front of the bike, and is balanced by a steel twin-sided swing arm suspension in the rear. The rear also has a single shock absorber to help drivers handle the tough off-road terrain they ride on.
Now, because the bike is rarely taken off dirt biking trails, it does not come with a handful of standard features found on other motorcycles, such as an odometer, speedometer, or fuel level gauge. However, what it lacks in terms of standard features, the CRF 50F more than makes up for in specifications completely unique to this bike. This motorcycle comes with an engine case guard and exhaust guard, as well as standard exterior covers and guards. It also has standard hand grips to help riders hang on under rough conditions and a driver’s side foot peg location for the rider’s feet to do exactly the same. Finally, the bike has standard front and rear fenders that are durable safety components, especially for a bike that was largely designed for children.
