2019 Honda CRF125F:

Better bike, better rider. It will light the fuse for any kid who wants to progress to bigger fire power.

It may be small, but it shares the same styling and some of the features of its big brother, the awesome CRF450R. Hit the electric start and the air-cooled SOHC engine is eager to go, tuned specifically for smooth bottom end torque, perfect for junior riders. The new diamond spar steel frame, the 31mm diameter fork with 140mm of travel and Honda Pro-Link rear suspension system provide a tough chassis to bash on through the rough stuff.

Honda’s CRF125F may sit right in the middle of our off-road fun bike lineup, but it’s over the top when it comes to some big improvements this year. In terms of our overall line, the CRF125F is the next step up from our CRF110F—a little bigger, a little taller, a little more powerful. We’ve designed it to hit that sweet spot that makes it a great choice for both young riders and smaller adults. But for 2019, it’s a whole lot better.

To start with, we gave it fuel injection this year. That makes a great engine even better, first because it broadens up the power, but most of all because you can say goodbye to clogged up pilot jets after the bike’s sat out the winter. It also means easier starting and better running in cold weather or at high altitudes, and less pollution.

There’s a new twin-spar steel frame this year too, and more suspension travel at each end for an even more plush ride. An electric starter makes it easy to get going, while a four-speed transmission gives you all the control of a full-sized bike.

Sound like an awesome motorcycle, but maybe you’re looking for something that will better fit a taller rider? Right this way—we also make the CRF125F in a big-wheel version. Either way, you’re making a great choice.

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 for the Sweet Spot

With its air-cooled, 125cc 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.


Fuel-Injected Engine

New for 2019, the CRF125F’s fuel injection makes starting easier than ever, and automatically compensates for cold weather or high altitudes. Plus, it runs cleaner!

Time to think big.

We’ve got some big guns in our CRF–MX line up and the new CRF125F is proud to stand next to them. The perfect entry bike for young guns aged 10, or over, who are looking for fun and a bike to feed their dirt track passion.


Room to grow

Getting to grips with off road riding.

The learnings from early years are invaluable to help novices grow into accomplished off road riders.

Braking power

A 220mm front disc brake is hydraulically operated with an adjustable span lever. Complemented by the 95mm rear drum brake, both provide a good even balance of braking power.

Happier landings


With the CRF125F, young riders can progress to more adventurous riding, safely.

With a suspension system built around a beefy 31mm telescopic fork and heavy weight springs, the bike is perfect for soaking up the forces from a jump.

Taking more of the shock

A new rear shock has a 32mm diameter piston damper with separate air/oil/gas pressure chambers to reduce emulsification and maintenance.

Honda Pro-Link System

The steel swingarm is built around the Honda Pro-Link system, which uses needle bearings to diminish friction.


CRF Performance Line technology such as fuel injection and twin-spar frame design is now bestowed on the CRF Trail Line, advancing the 2019 CRF125F and CRF125F Big Wheel into modern off-road motorcycles that maximize fun and ride enjoyment. The electronically controlled Keihin fuel-injection system delivers smooth, seamless, linear power at any rpm and throttle setting—ideal for new motorcyclists and equally advantageous for advanced riders on technical trails or when going through big elevation changes—and the model is 50-state off-road legal. The all-new twin-spar frame is made of steel and extensively tested and developed for a confidence-inspiring chassis wrapped in new body panels and graphics that match those of the model’s race-oriented CRF siblings. Both CRF125F models retain the proven 124.9cc SOHC engine and four-speed gearbox for strong power and intuitive shifting feel. In terms of hardware, the two versions differ only in wheel size, swingarm length and final-drive gearing, resulting in a difference in seat height of 1.8 inches. Instructors or parents will appreciate the peace of mind that comes with putting a rider on a secure and nimble machine, and maintenance is simplified with fuel injection—no jets to change or to clog with fuel residue if the bike sits for an extended period. Electric start, low-fuel indicator light, ignition “key on” indicator, and Honda’s earned reputation for making the best-built and most dependable motorcycles on the trail mean pride of ownership all week and fun and thrills every weekend.
