Sized Right For Fun…

Few things in life are as much pure fun as a dirtbike, as long as it’s the right-sized dirtbike. That’s why Honda builds so many differently sized models, and one of our best is the CRF125F. The next size up from our CRF110F, it’s the perfect choice for both young riders and smaller adults. Loaded with features designed to make trail riding a relaxing, no-hassle experience, it’s also pure Honda when it comes to reliability and durability.

That means you get to concentrate on having a good time rather than trailside repairs or a bike that was designed by cutting corners. And when it comes to looks, the CRF125F takes its styling cues right from our full-on motocross bikes like our CRF450R and CRF250R. An electric starter makes it easy to get underway, while a four-speed transmission gives you all the control of a full-sized bike.

Looking for something just a little bigger? There’s even a big-wheel version for taller riders.

Be A Responsible Rider: All parents need to consider their youngsters’ age, size, ability and maturity before allowing them to ride. Obtain a copy of “Off-Road Safety Tips” from your local Honda Dealer.

Electric Starter

Turn a key, push a button—that’s all it takes to get the CRF125F started. Add in a generous dose of Honda reliability and you’ll find the CRF125F is super easy to own.

Sized Right For Fun

With its 125cc air-cooled, single-overhead-cam engine and four-speed transmission, the CRF125F will fit a wide range of riders. It has enough power for teens and small adults without being intimidating for younger riders.

Stopping Power

Just because it’s a small bike doesn’t mean we scrimped on the details—just the opposite, in fact: The CRF125F’s front disc brake is a perfect example. It’s a big-bike feature that’s pure Honda.
