Ah, the 1990 Honda NSR50, the bike that made little wheels cool while your Grom-riding, Monster Energy-swilling, flat-billed hat-wearing, vape-sporting nephew was still in Pullups. These bikes never made it stateside as street bikes, but they were sold here until 2004 as entry-level road racers, and made unmodified Yamaha YSRs look even punier by comparison.
The little 50cc two-stroke made 7.2 horsepower at 11,500 rpm, which was enough to get the 160-pound minibike to around 60 mph. To this day, they are the darlings of M1GP and other minibike classes across the country, and they still win and enjoy dealer network parts support.
Unlike the vast majority of its siblings, the NSR50 you see here is street legal, with a valid Utah title provided by Gary, a longtime friend and supporter of the site. As with most of his bikes, it lives inside on a carpet and is in more or less flawless condition. For a bike known for its racing prowess and its beginner-friendly attitude, that's an impressive feat.

The guts of the engine in this bike are stock, but the airbox and oil injection have been removed to give it a little bit more oomph. That means you'll be mixing the gas yourself, but once we doubt this thing has any long road trips in its future, so that isn't likely to be a big constraint.
The auction has limited time left and lively bidding, so if you like 'em small, get cracking.
