I've had the chance to buy a few of these, over the years, but I could never pull the trigger.

I've already got a Trail 90...why would I want another Honda 90?

And it's so butt-ugly, it makes an Elite look good...

Handlebar seems TOO close to the seat, and the footpeg position looks to be for clubman/caferacer posture. Uncomfortable on a tiny wheelbase unless you a midget.

They were all over the place at MX races in the 1990s - IIRC even team honda puttered around the pits on them before the pit bike craze. Kinda interesting, I've never ridden one or seen them in street legal form in the US.

then there's this

I think Battle scooter sums it up nicly

So I just picked up this 91 EZ90 Cub. It's not a dirt bike, but I love scooters, I love dirt bikes, so why not combine them! It pulls the front wheel off the line and got up to about 45mph. Not bad for $550.

When I was a kid these were prime time. I lusted for one more than can be expressed on this post.

It is a kids trail bike as far as ergonomics and performance are concerned.

90cc two stroke with CVT and oil injection.

Nice ride, red!

How does it handle the mud?

Yup, a great kids trail bike. The left hand brake and automatic transmission were great on hill climbs and technical stuff. As for water crossings and mud it was a hoot! Ground clearance and a rear spring set up for 14 year old were issues, but ride it appropriately and good times follow. It's not going to keep up with a yz250, but I think I'll be able to keep up with my wife on her ttr230
