crf50... definately. I havn't rode one of the newer ttr50's but i have ridden the old pw50 2-strokes. The honda 50's i think win this one. Much larger aftermarket. you can still buy brand new aftermarket parts for honda 50s that date back to at least 1978 because i rebuilt one of those.. honda's are pretty much indestructable. can't go wrong!

Both are the same and both are good but I dont like the E-start, something else to break or not work.

parts galore for the CRF, not so much for TTRs. And that eletric start is , what happens if it breaks (which it will) they don't have a kick start

ttrs are faster and have a taller first gear, and if the start goes out not the end of the world, the little bikes start by hand in third, push start is the only way to start them anyway but with electric start you can run lights stright from the lighting coil and thats trick, you gotta spend $450 to do that on the hon-don't

Ok so the electric start is a plus and a minus, but how do TTRs last compared to CRFs?

dude lighting coils are cheap. not 450. i had a ttr for about a month. it was a fun bike but i think the honda is better. They can just take a beating and keep going. I have personally watched a xr 50 lock up because of the lack of oil then start back up and run fine when oil was added. The yamaha has a few extra features but the aftermarket on the honda is insane.

I dont have a ttr so I have no comment on it and am not voting for the same reason. I wouldnt mind having the ttr with a honda motor, and like some one else said you could alway push start. I might pulling the Kick lever off of my bike.
It gets in the way.

now that I have bought my 09 TTR... I will never buy another Honda... it took me about 2 days to get used to... but once everything fell into place...

IT'S MONEY!!

HANDS DOWN... TTR...


and for the record... the TTR 50 has only been built since 06 (not the last 8-10 years)... of course there isn't a load of aftermarket parts for them... but if you look in the books, there is almost the same amount of upgrades for the ttr as the honda...


just my .02
it's just an oppinion... and like the guy said previous... their is no point in voting on something if you haven't owned both...



oh, and the ttr has a kick start you can buy... it's pretty inexpensive... but I love the e-start and having the option to install lighting so much easier

if you put the ttr and the xr side by side the color seams the be the only differences but the ttr is $300 cheaper and it comes with electric start. plus honda and yamaha are the best out there, so you have to ask yourself, do i like my money and do i really look good on red....(eeew)....cuz everybody likes blue and isn't blue the color for male and red/pink what color does that stand for haha burn.....

I found this online... granted this is from a couple years ago (2006) when the TTR was first released... the front shocks have been greatly improved (I have the +1HD springs on mine)

I know it's a lot to read, but it was pretty interesting...
