Just for 1990, America got a taste of Honda’s NSF50F two stroke “sport” bike. Despite the diminutive size, it’s a street legal bike with a claimed top speed of 55 miles per hour. It makes me think of a MB5 that got updated with liquid cooling and then painted by a Miami coke dealer. I want one.
Per Motorcyclist Magazine, only approximately 200 were imported to the US. It featured a 6-speed transmission with drum brakes on both ends and 17 inch wheels. Honda offered three accessories for this bike – a chin fairing, a full fairing (basically the chin with a lower fairing), and a tach. I think the chin fairing really completes the baby sportbike styling. For more on this little Honda, check out this summary on Tanshanomi’s Snap Judgments.
This example has just 87 miles and the seller says that “it is most likely for the collector.”
Find this NS50F for sale in Wilmot, New Hampshire with an asking price of $7,100 here on Craigslist.
