2020 Honda CRF50F review, kids dirt bike review

Age (3-6yrs)

The 2020 Honda CRF50F is like the modern version of the beloved classic, Z50. It has received crucial updates to raise its performance levels. The 4-stroke engine is famously reliable because it has reduced the hassles and frustrations that had been brought by previous models.

This is one of the most trusted dirt bikes in the Honda family and the dirt bike industry. It is a great introductory bike because it is very easy to ride even for the smallest bike lovers. It is a great platform for control, power, and ease of riding. It will surely ignite a passion for dirt bikes in your kids.

Its four-stroke, 49cc motor, 3 gears, and no clutch interaction generate steady power that is quite easy to control. Once your little rider engages one gear, he/she will not need to worry about other factors like stopping or balancing.

2020 Yamaha PW50 Review

2020 PW50 review, peewee 50 review

Best Overall Dirt Bike for 3-6 Year Old’s

Yamaha Peewee 50

Age (3-6yrs) 

The 2020 Yamaha PeeWee 50 comes as a clean and quiet design with heat shields for your child’s safety. The engineers have gone out of their way to add a lightweight pipe close to the engine for more ground clearance and improved safety and convenience. The 3-spoke steel wheels are strong so that even though the Yamaha weighs only 39kgs, it will deliver many years of fun.

You will be able to instantly recognize this legendary bike created for the younger end of the spectrum. Just like the Yamaha TT-R50E, and unlike other Yamaha kids’ dirt bikes, the Yamaha PW50 comes with a 2-stroke engine that doesn’t need premixing. Its air-cooled engine lubricates itself using an inhouse fuel injection system.

Separating it from the TT-R50, Yamaha PW50 is equipped with an automatic transmission so that the young riders can twist the throttle as they go. The power is then transferred to the shaft drive so that your child can maintain stability. 

In case your kid gets a little over-enthusiastic, Yamaha has enabled you to put a stop to that excitement through the throttle limiting technology.

It also comes with a super low-seat height of 48.5cm, perfect for small riders.
