The Honda Z50J is a motorcycle produced by Honda belonging to its Honda Z series family of mini bikes. It began production in 1973 for the European and Japanese markets. In its first few years of production, it was the same as its American counterpart, the Honda Z50A. But in 1978, when Honda dropped the Z50A from its American motorcycle lineup, the European Z50J continued to evolve until 1999. Fewer Z50J were being produced each year and were sold only as limited editions. Finland had its own edition of the Z50J through the 1980s to 1999. 1987-99 used non foldable "BMX" style handlebars; they did not come with indicators, 6 volt lighting, and most were black and red in colour.
