Honda has teamed up with Greenger Powersports to launch the new CRF-E2, a twin-spar aluminum framed, electric dirt bike for kids with a 3K price tag.
Although not built by Honda directly, the new CRF-E2 can be considered the Japanese brand’s first electric motorcycle on the market. It’s built by Greenger Powersports as an “official licensed product” for Honda, which counts for a lot with the big red who traditionally are very much an in-house company.

It sure looks like a Honda with the CRF-aping plastics and that replica twin-spar frame. The trend for manufacturers is to get riders hooked early and if the e-bike is the new first step into off-road for kids then this is Honda’s answer.

The Honda CRF-E2 price tag means business too, at $2950 in the US which makes it a more affordable option than the KTM SX-E 5 which weighs in at $5399 – although it’s worth pointing out the Honda is the equivalent of a 50cc while KTM say theirs is more of a match for a 65cc which is something to consider depending on the age and size of your kid.
