22 Honda CRF-E2 Review [15 Fast Facts: Electric Motorcycle Test]

The first electric motorcycle from Honda is here, and it might not be what you expected—the new 2022 Honda CRF-E2 is a trail bike for kids. The CRF-E2 is manufactured and designed by Greenger Powersports, with Honda helping with the setup of the final version. The result is described as a Honda Official Licensed Product, and we call it a Honda CRF-E2 because we’re a motorcycle publication. We grabbed one of the first E2s available from Greenger, and then let our youngest test rider loose on the local trails.

  • The 2022 Honda CRF-E2 is a quality motorcycle. The frame is a twin-spar aluminum design patterned after Honda’s adult motocrossers, disc brakes slow it down, Kenda Millville K771 tires put the electric power to the ground, and the E2 has a linkage-less cantilevered shock with adjustment for rebound damping and spring preload. The motorcycle looks great, and the finish is up to Honda standards. This isn’t a cheap toy you’ll find at hardware or department stores. It is sold exclusively at Honda dealers with a list price of 2950.
  • The size of the CRF-E2 is midway between a Honda CRF50F and CRF110F. The E2’s seat is adjustable to a height of either 24.8 or 25.5 inches. In the low position, the seat is 3.2 inches higher than the CRF50F, and the high seat position is 0.4 inches lower than the CRF110F. Test rider Avery Bart is almost 8 years old, stands 4 feet 2 inches, and weighs 48 pounds, and the E2 fits her perfectly. Speaking of weight, at 106 pounds filled with electrons, the E2 is four pounds lighter than the CRF50F and a staggering 64 pounds lighter than the CRF110F—a huge difference for a young rider.
  • Operating the Honda CRF-E2 is incredibly easy. It has a keyed ignition. Once the key is in the switched to the on position, the rider or supervising adult can select one of two power modes. With the power mode engaged, push the on button (a repurposed e-start button), and all the rider has to do is twist the throttle. It’s instantly game-on, as the fully automatic one-speed transmission means no clutch or gear shifting. Any youngster of sufficient size who can balance a bicycle will be able to ride the E2.
  • There is a significant difference between the two power modes. Stage 1 limits the speed of the E2 to 10 mph, while Stage 2 ups the ante to 20 mph. The 3.4 horsepower peak output is not nearly as important as the 18.4 ft-lbs of torque available. Without any doubt, the CRF-E2 is not underpowered.
  • Taking off from a standing start is not as smooth in Stage 1 as we’d like it to be. Electric motors on motorcycles are only as usable as the controller for the motor. With so much torque available as soon as an electric motor turns, it must be padded down for the power to be usable. In Stage 1, we found the power delivery too abrupt when getting underway, especially when the rider is trying to work through obstacles that require turning the wheel. Once the rider gets going, the throttle response is just right, and the 10-mph speed restriction will please nervous parents.
  • Put the 2022 Honda CRF-E2 in Stage 2, and it’s a little rocketship. The Greenger representative we spoke with reminded us that the E2 is a trailbike, not a racebike. While we respect that, the power delivered in Stage 2 will undoubtedly have a young hot shoe looking for friends to dice with. It’s fun watching the E2 tear around in Stage 2, and especially odd when all you hear is the whine of the electric motor.
  • We think the CRF-E2 controller should be a bit more high-tech. Rather than only having two fixed modes, we want the ability to fine-tune throttle response. A parent should be able to dial in the throttle response over a wide range, as well as the maximum output. Ideally, it would be doable via Bluetooth and a mobile app. While Honda and Greenger are at it, an adult-controlled kill switch would be a great safety feature.
  • The chassis is perfectly matched to the motor. The suspension worked fine for Avery in both modes, and we had her out on some pretty bumpy trails. She isn’t ready for airtime, though the Honda promo photos show the E2 being jumped, so that activity is within its intended use.
  • The suspension setup balances the needs of riders who just want to putt, while still providing the taut action needed for Stage 2 kids. When adults hop on—as they invariable will—the rear suspension nearly bottoms out. That tells you it’s set up for kids under the maximum weight of 99 pounds. At 44 pounds, Avery had no complaints. The shock has rebound-damping adjustment, which seems superfluous on a trailbike for kids. If your youngster asks for damping adjustments, it’s time for a racebike. Suspension travel is just under four inches at each end—plenty, thanks to the settings, and a perfect match to the motor.
  • The Kenda Millville K771 tires are a great choice. This intermediate tire worked on the various terrain we tested on—rocky, hard pack, and sandy. The two 12-inch rims are mounted with 60/100 tires. Honda and Greenger should upgrade to a 14-inch front wheel so the CRF-E2 can better roll over off-road obstacles.
  • Avery challenged herself more confidently on the Honda CRF-E2 than on 50cc motorcycles. The predictable power delivery of the whirring motor allows learning riders to FOCUS on acquiring new skills. There’s no auto-clutch engagement or gear shifting to think about. The rider prepares for the new tasks—riding through rock gardens to tackling modest hillclimbs, for example—without distraction. The E2 is an outstanding learning tool.
  • The hydraulic disc brakes are simple and easy to use. Each is controlled by an adjustable lever on the aluminum handlebar. Avery likes the action of the brakes, and we haven’t seen her struggle with them. With the E2 having no foot controls, the rider’s feet are securely planted on the stout footpegs.
  • Runtime for the 2022 Honda CRF-E2’s lithium-ion battery is listed at two hours, and it wasn’t an issue for us. While Avery wasn’t shredding, she has tested the E2 on some tricky power-sucking terrain. It takes four hours to bring the battery from flat to full with the standard charger—the optional quick charger takes two hours to get the battery to an 80 percent charge. If your rider drains the battery before running out of personal energy, the battery can be easily swapped out. However, you’ll be dropping 1k for that second battery—worth it if your rider is inexhaustible.
  • There’s pretty much no maintenance required. With no motor oil, no air filter, and no cable-actuated controls, the E2 takes care of itself. The chain might require adjustment now and then, depending on how hard the bike is ridden. You definitely don’t have to be a gearhead to own a CRF-E2.
  • For a young rider learning the powered two-wheeled ropes, the 2022 Honda CRF-E2 is undeniably enticing. It’s a strong performer, backed up by the Honda dealer network, incredibly easy to keep running, can be ridden in untraditional locations, and puts huge smiles on kids’ faces. You can’t beat that for less than 3000.

Calling themselves “The Pack Track” their adventures are chronicled on their blog. Teejay gets the lowdown on some of their experiences—good and bad—and the challenge of crossing borders with canines along for the ride. Actually, they will be touring the USA from June to October this year, starting in Sacramento, California, before making their way across to the North East part of the US, and then finishing back in Dallas, Texas where they first started. On the tour they will be giving free presentations at a number of motorcycle dealerships, so check out their schedule and hopefully get along to meet them in person.

So, from everyone here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode.

Dirt Bikes for 8-Year-Old Kids

Kids that reach the age of 8 generally progress from beginner level dirt bikes and demand either an intermediate model that offers more power or a bigger model since they have outgrown their current bike and no longer enjoy their “toylike” capabilities. Regardless, if your kid wants to take a next step in dirt biking, it is time to upgrade.

Dirt bikes for 8-year-old kids must meet specific needs in terms of adaptability and must allow your kid to become independent once in the saddle. While some kids have already mastered the skills, others are just beginning to explore their abilities. So, it’s important to evaluate your child’s capabilities, as well as the budget you want to allocate to this purchase. Because, even though these dirt bikes are intended for kids, they can be pricey, so it’s important to choose the right dirt bike that suits your own budget and still appeals to your child.

However, it is often difficult to make the right choice with so many options available to us as parents, with an overwhelming choice in terms of design, pricing, and features available in the market. So, let’s try to enlighten some of the best dirt bikes that are ideal for your 8-year-old kid.

In fact, the KTM 50 SX is the first choice for parents when their kids are entering the world of motocross or taking their first step in a racing environment. But do note, if your kid is already trying to jump on the trails or trying to look for more adventure, it’s better you consider a 65cc dirt bike.

Base Price: 4,599.00 USD

  • Dry weight: 41.5 kilograms
  • Seat height: 26.1 inches
  • Starting mechanism: Kick start
  • Displacement: 49 cc

Yamaha TT-R50E

There are plenty of great bikes that are excellent for an 8-year-old, but if you think your child is a little shorter than his or her peers, there is no need to push for a taller bike. So, what you can do instead is FOCUS on improving his/her riding skills, whilst providing a safer environment to learn and enjoy.

The TT-R50E is the perfect bike for such situations, having a seat height of only 21.9 inches, yet it offers a lot in terms of performance when compared to beginner dirt bikes like the PW50 or CRF50F.

The other thing about this bike is that it will prepare your child and bridge the gap from entry-level 50cc dirt bikes all the way to 85- or 110cc bikes that are designed for intermediate riders. As it is, the TT-R50E is a 49-cc air-cooled engine with a 4-stroke cycle, making it extremely easy to handle.

In addition, you also get a throttle adjuster to control the power if your kid has just started to ride this bike. Plus, you get a 3-speed constant-mesh automatic clutch that gives a real dirt bike feel. And because it’s not exactly entry level, Yamaha has offered an electric start rather than a kickstart. This said, you get an ignition key along (you can’t start the bike without the key) in case you want to keep an eye on your kid all the time.

With a weight of 58 kilograms, the TT-R50E is about 18 kilograms heavier than the PW50 and 9 kilograms heavier than CRF50F. So, it’s definitely ideal for an 8-year-old who wants the feel of a real dirt bike, but is still having a hard time tip-toeing on any intermediate bikes.

Base Price: 1,749.00 USD

  • Wet weight: 58 kilograms
  • Seat height: 21.9 inches
  • Starting mechanism: Electric start
  • Displacement: 49 cc
  • Engine: 4 Stroke
  • Clutch: Automatic clutch
  • Transmission: 3-speed

Our Verdict: KTM 65 SX

With a very impressive technical specification and a robust yet beautiful body, the KTM 65 SX stands out as our first choice for an 8-year-old kid.

First and foremost, it is worth noting that the revamped chassis significantly increased the bike’s strength and resistance against both torsion and impact, while simultaneously enhancing the bike’s handling. In fact, this was made possible through the use of chrome-molybdenum steel, which further contributed to its high speed stability.

In addition, its swingarm is made of die-cast aluminum designed using the latest calculation and simulation software, that further reduced the overall weight whilst retaining an optimal level of stability.

A single cylinder two-stroke engine with a displacement of 65 cc together with a 6-speed gearbox thrusts the 65 SX with power that can easily surpass 100 km/h mark. Besides, the tank can hold around 3.5 liters of petrol that further provides a good range.

Just like the full-sized dirt bike, the 65 SX sports lightweight black anodized aluminum wheels for strength and durability. And with these wheels, you get OEM MAXXIS knobby tires that deliver unparalleled traction regardless of the trail.

It further features a 198mm front and 160mm rear disc brake and a massive 4-piston caliper that offers a quick and effortless braking performance. On top of that, these bikes are actually easy to master by a young kid, owing to the hydraulic braking system that guarantees the highest level of efficiency. Plus, its rugged and resilient handlebar is able to withstand occasional falls without any problems, which is typically a common sight when a kid is maneuvering around.

In a nutshell, the 65 SX is loaded with everything your kids can desire starting from right clutch and transmission to the latest WP XACT front fork with revolutionary AER technology as well as modern graphics and class-leading power delivery.
