2014 Honda CRF125F Review
2014 Honda CRF125F on Totalmotorcycle.com
When they’re ready for their first manual clutch, you’d be hard pressed to find a better choice than the CRF125F…
A New Generation Of Bike For A New Generation Of Riders
Honda’s all-new CRF125F is going to be a great choice for a wide range of riders. Sized between our CRF110 and CRF125F Big Wheel, you’ll find it’s perfect for young riders, and smaller adults who just want to get out on the trails and have fun. There’s even a big-wheel version for taller riders. Loaded with features, we’re especially proud of its reliability (nothing can match a Honda for that), so you get to concentrate on having a good time rather than fussing with a temperamental machine. Rugged, simple and easy to maintain, it offers styling cues that match our CRF450R and CRF250R motocross bikes. Its electric starter makes it easy to get underway, while a four-speed transmission gives you all the control of a full-sized bike.
Off-road riding should be fun. And for 2014, the new CRF125F offers as much fun as bikes twice its size.
Be A Responsible Rider
Parents need to consider their youngster’s age, size, ability and maturity before allowing them to ride. See owner’s manual for additional safety and supervisory information. Designed exclusively for off-road operator-only use. Always wear a helmet, eye protection and protective clothing whenever you ride. Never ride under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
With its 125cc single-overhead-cam engine, air-cooled and four-speed transmission, the new CRF125F will fit a wide range of riders. It has enough power for teens and small adults without being intimidating for younger riders.
Kids grow quickly, as do their skill levels, so Honda builds a full range of off-road machines to help guide kids safely through these developmental years. The CRF125F is the smallest machine in our lineup with a manual clutch and is the perfect step up from the auto clutch CRF110F. The small wheel sizes keep the seat height low, while at 87kg its only 13kg heavier than the CRF110 for light, predictable, kid-sized handling.
There’s benefits for parents too; legendary Honda durability not only means no disappointed kids when it’s time to ride, it also means parents don’t spend a lot of time wrenching. Equally important that renowned durability means parents can pass the CRF125F down to a younger sibling or get excellent trade in value when it’s time for their young rider to graduate up to the next size.
CRF – CRF125F – whenever they’re ready
In 2013 the CRF110F replaced the immensely popular CRF70F within Honda’s family of fun, entry-level off-road bikes. Now, two new larger-displacement 2014 CRF125F models enter the lineup, allowing consumers more choices in this market segment. The two CRF125F models offer unique wheel sizes that allow them to replace the CRF80F and CRF100F. With a seat height of 28.9 inches, the small-wheel CRF125F seat is the same height as the CRF80F it replaces, while the CRF125F Big Wheel features the same seat height-30.9 inches-as the CRF100F it replaces. This seat-height option allows riders to pick the CRF125F that fits best. Featuring an all-new electric-start 125cc single-cylinder OHC four-stroke engine tuned for loads of low-end grunt plus plenty of pull throughout the powerband, the CRF125Fs also feature a four-speed gearbox. Add a new rolling chassis with upgraded suspension components front and rear plus styling just like Honda’s CRF® motocross bikes, and you have a great addition to Honda’s off-road line of family machines with a bike for all riders-young to old, beginner to expert.
One of the great things about Honda’s line of off-road trail bikes is they seem to have something for everyone, case in point the CRF125F (Big Wheel). Essentially the same as the standard CRF125F the “Big Wheel” version is fitted with 2” larger wheels at each end with a corresponding increase in seat height, ground clearance and wheelbase. Of course it has all the same great features as the regular CRF125F, only with a bit more room. Just getting into motorcycling, or moving up from something smaller, the CRF125F (Big Wheel) may be exactly the right size for you.
And Honda’s legendary durability means that if you outgrow it, you can count on relatively high, retained value at trade in time.
