2015 Honda CRF125F Big Wheel on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
CRF125F (Big Wheel) – just right…
An extensive lineup of off-road entry models means Honda has a bike to fit almost any sized rider. Slotting in nicely between the standard CRF125F and the ever-popular CRF150F Honda offers a big wheel version of the CRF125F. Utilizing the same engine and frame as the CRF125F, the big wheel version, as the name implies, is fitted with 2″ larger wheels front and rear. Suspension modifications to accommodate the larger wheels mean the “Big Wheel” has a 2″ higher seat, a 2″ longer wheelbase and 2″ more ground clearance; just a little bit more room for that perfect fit. And, of course, the “Big Wheel” features the same legendary durability and reliability as the standard version for excellent retained value come trade in time.
Sized Right For Fun
Kids aren’t all the same size at the same age, and that’s why Honda offers so many choices when it comes to dirtbikes. You need to carefully consider both your rider’s skill level and overall size when choosing a bike. But when it comes to the 2014 Honda CRF125F Big Wheel, you’re in luck. Basically, it’s the same great machine as our CRF125F, but with bigger wheels and a two-inch taller seat height. That combination means it will be perfect for thousands of teens and smaller adults who just want to get out on the trails and have fun. It’s loaded with features, because it’s a Honda it’s also famously reliable—a big plus, because riding is a lot more fun than wrenching or dealing with a poor-quality bike. Like the CRF125F, the Big Wheel version offers an electric starter makes it easy to get underway, and its four-speed transmission gives you all the control of a full-sized bike.
