[The owner has something to say]Multi-purpose universal machine HONDA “XE50”


The[Car Owner has something to say]event held on Webike’s online social platform is in full swing! This time, “ままくん” will share his riding story with HONDA XE50!

Through the owner’s analysis and evaluation of the car-HONDA XE50, let riders understand the advantages or disadvantages of HONDA XE50 from multiple angles.


・Driving age

It’s been two years since I got the intermediate driver’s license.

・The fun of riding a motorcycle

I use it for commuting daily, but sometimes I go to the mountains, rivers and cross-country tracks to play.

・Starting time

Started in 2016, so it has been 4 years. By the way, because it was made in 1976, it is older than me (sweat).

・Into the manual machine

I happened to fancy it at the auction. At that time, it was rusty and looked like scrap iron (IMHO), but it was really cheap (laughs).



It can be easily used on ordinary roads, off-road or in bad weather, and it is very convenient overall.

・About riding

Although it is an old car, it runs very well and is fun, and there is a lot of maintenance that can be done, so I can learn a lot.

・About appearance

Although the car is very old, because it is a basic off-road vehicle, maintenance is easy, and there is no need to worry about whether it will get dirty.



1. Because the original XE50 uses a 6V battery, it is easy to suddenly lose power when riding at night, even if it is replaced with a 12V system, it is easy to run out of power due to insufficient power generation.

2. Since the ignition system is an old-fashioned platinum ignition, the number of shops that can handle it is limited, and all inspection, adjustment, and maintenance must be done by yourself.

3. Various wires such as brakes, clutches, stopwatches, and speeds should also be maintained regularly.

・About riding

1. Because it is an old designed body, it is very burdensome and easy to fatigue when driving at high speed. Even on ordinary roads, if it is a fast road, it will be very laborious to run, and the body is light and light. Small and very dangerous (sweat) when the wind is strong.

・About appearance

Because there is rust everywhere, all the parts must be disassembled and polished and painted. This is faster, and it is difficult to obtain good appearance parts even at auction (not enough money…).


・People who like old cars or want to own VMX

・Those who want to learn basic vehicle maintenance

・People who do not panic even if there is a problem
