American Honda announces the beginning of the 2009 model year with the arrival of a number of favorite models for both on-road and off-road use. This first group of 2009 machines includes the ever-popular dirt-going CRF50F, CRF70F, CRF80F and CRF100F, the perfect starter bikes for beginning riders. Also within this group of first-release bikes are the thrifty Metropolitan and Ruckus scooters, the ideal around-town rides for people intent on ratcheting down the expense of running errands.
