MiniTrail

The Honda Z50R refers to a motorcycle produced by Honda Motorcycles belonging to its Z Series family of mini bikes. It began production in 1979 as Honda's answer to the increasing demand for mini dirt bikes to be used on the track, as opposed to their traditional trail bike used more for leisure, such as the Z50A and Z50J. The Z50R quickly evolved into a light-weight mini racing machine until 1999 when it was replaced by the XR50R in 2000.
