GREENGER – Honda Electric Bike Test

CRF-E2 is a brand new electric motorcycle model from a license agreement between American Honda and Greenger Powersports. Now, that’s not your normal license agreement, where one of the companies just puts their name on an existing product and calls it good. Greenger and Honda went the more collaborative route, building the CRF-E2 and making sure it had features that were important to both manufacturers for the end user. The CRF-E2 is the first motorcycle in Honda history aimed at the youth electric market.

First of all, the CRF-E2 is not designed to be a race car. This model is designed to complement Honda’s recreational and off-road lineup, including the CRF250F, CRF125F, CRF110F and CRF50F models. The second “F” stands for “family”. The main goal of the Honda CRF-E2 is to provide a practical but exciting introduction to young drivers in the powersports industry.

The CRF-E2 looks like a Honda race car but the overall design is very simple and easy for almost anyone to understand.

The CRF-E2 is powered by a 48-volt BLDC electric motor with an inner rotor for a maximum output of 3.4 horsepower and 18.4 pound-feet of torque . The lithium-ion battery that powers the electric motor is designed to produce a range of about two hours under ideal conditions on a full charge. Using the provided charging system, the battery can be fully charged in four hours.

A fast charging system is also available for an additional fee, Capable of being fully charged in two and a half hours. The CRF-E2 battery can be easily and quickly removed without any tools. A handlebar-mounted display allows the user to monitor battery life, mode selection and any error codes that may pop up.

Chassis with twin-spar aluminum frame, high-performance swingarm, tapered aluminum Handlebars, front and rear hydraulic disc brakes, adjustable aluminum brake levers and 12-inch aluminum wheels wrapped with Kenda Millville knobby tires. The suspension on the CRF-E2 consists of a 33mm telescopic hydraulic front fork and a DNM shock with adjustable preload and rebound damping.

A handlebar mounted monitor screen allows the rider to monitor battery life, speed and any error codes at a glance.

The real talk

As we said before, Honda and Green Grid didn’t intend to use the CRF-E2 as a race car, so they designed it accordingly. Overall, they did a great job. CRF-E2 has a lot of adjustability. Multiple rear shock mount positions, dynamic lever position adjustments and selectable power takeoff modes make it easy to tailor for a variety of riders.

No tools required to remove the battery, it only takes a minute, so having an extra battery charged and ready at any time is a realistic option.

The initial power supply was a bit abrupt at first some of our test riders were a little shy, but this is common with most motors on the market today complain. Although the braking system on the CRF-E2 looks a bit big and out of place, they work just fine.

A really cool feature on the CRF-E2 is what we like to call the “backup option”, which is when the battery drops to a certain level, the display flashes code E081, then power Will be limited to let the rider know it’s time to recharge. However, it still has limited battery life to return to camp. We’re all about not having kids stuck or having to push a dead e-bike anywhere. As for styling, Honda And Gringer absolutely nailed it to the CRF-E2. It looks cool.
