CRF-E2 is First-ever Electric Honda Motorcycle

It feels like we’ve been waiting for the first electric Honda motorcycle for several years now, but that wait is over. It’s finally here – and it’s just for kids! Meet the CRF-E2, the first-ever electric Honda motorcycle you can buy.

Built by Greenger Powersports under a license from Honda, the CRF-E2 may not be “all Honda”, but it will be sold exclusively through Honda powersports dealers and carry distinct visual cues to tie it, visually, to the bigger bikes in Honda’s stable. It’s a business model similar to what Harley-Davidson did with Stacyc when it first began offering electric starter bikes for kids, and both Husqvarna, and KTM have followed suit since.

Regardless of the business plans involved the Honda CRF-E2 is aimed at the 50cc class, and promises to “leave a lasting impression … (your kids) will never forget the experience.” The CRF-E2 promises your kids all the fun of the CRF50, but without having to deal with the noise, emission, and heat (which is dangerous, and a fire hazard) from the gas engine.

At $2950, plus freight and destination, the CRF-E2 isn’t cheap. In fact, it’s a lot more expensive than a Tesla Cyberquad and squarely in Volcon Runt territory, and it’s not entirely clear yet how it would stack up against either.

To help answer that question for yourself, you can check out the full spec sheet and launch video, below, then let us know what you think of this little electric Honda in the comments section at the bottom of the page.
