The Perfect Fit…

Honda’s family of fun, entry-level off-road bikes includes two versions of the CRF125F, their different wheel-sizes and seat-heights allowing consumers more choices in this market segment. Both feature an electric-start 124.9cc single-cylinder OHC four-stroke engine tuned for loads of low-end grunt plus plenty of pull throughout the powerband, as well as a four-speed gearbox. Add styling like Honda’s CRF motocross bikes, and you have a great option for all riders—young to old, beginner to expert.


A Step up before they step out.

One size doesn’t fit all—or it almost never fits perfectly. At least if we’re talking about motorcycles for fast-growing younger riders. Well, here’s the solution: Honda’s CRF125F Big Wheel. Sized to fit taller riders just right, but without putting them on a bike that’s too big. One that gives them too much power too soon.

Here’s how it works. We take our awesome CRF125F and set it up with bigger wheels and a longer swingarm. That means a two-inch-taller seat height: a combination that makes it 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 too, and since it’s a Honda, it’s also famously reliable—a big plus, because riding is a lot more fun than wrenching..Like the CRF125F, the Big Wheel version offers an electric starter that makes it easy to get underway, and its four-speed transmission gives you all the control of a full-sized bike.

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 Big Wheel going. Add in a generous dose of Honda reliability and you’ll find the CRF125F Big Wheel is super easy to own.

Sized right for fun.

With its 125cc single-overhead-cam engine and air-cooled four-speed transmission, the CRF125F Big Wheel will fit a wide range 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 front disc brake is a perfect example. It’s a big-bike feature that’s pure Honda.



Honda offers a wide range of off-road motorcycles, with varying rider sizes and skill levels in mind, the CRF125F being a perfect example. Its air-cooled 124.9cc engine has electric start and a four-speed transmission and is famous for its durability and reliability. Best of all, the bike is available in the standard version with 17- and 14-inch front and rear wheels and a 28.9-inch seat height, and the CRF125FB “Big Wheel” with 19- and 16-inch wheels and a 30.9-inch seat height.
