BIGGER WHEELS AND BIGGER FUN.
2019 Honda CRF125FB Big Wheel:
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.
All young riders aren’t equal—at least when it comes to how tall they are, and what riding skills they’ve developed. Neither are all adults, for that matter. And because we all know that, Honda is happy to serve up the CRF125F Big Wheel. Oh, and by the way, it gets some big improvements this year too.
The CRF125F Big Wheel is a simple concept, but a genius execution. We take our awesome CRF125F and set it up with larger diameter wheels and a longer swingarm. That means the bike also features a two-inch-taller seat height. The result? 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. But for 2019 that engine now comes with fuel injection. 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.
In addition, there’s a new twin-spar steel frame, 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.
The long and short of it: Sized to fit taller riders just right, but without putting them on a bike that’s too big or that gives them too much power too soon, the CRF125F Big Wheel is another great choice in our off-road line.
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.
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 You
With its single-overhead-cam engine and air-cooled, 125cc four-speed transmission, the CRF125F Big Wheel will fit a wide range of riders. It has enough power for teens and small adults without being intimidating for younger riders.
New for 2019, CRF125F Big Wheel’s fuel injection makes starting easier than ever, and automatically compensates for cold weather or high altitudes. Plus, it runs cleaner!

2019 Honda CRF125FB Big Wheel Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Proven Manual Clutch
Honda’s heavy-duty clutch is durable and helps promote smooth shifting.
Just like the pros use, the CRF125F Big Wheel gets upgraded, half-waffle pattern grips. Might as well start them off right!
Push-button starting makes getting started easier in all kinds of conditions, and the efficient design adds minimal weight.
Keyed Ignition Switch
For added security, the keyed ignition switch lets you control who goes riding and when, important if you have younger riders in the house.
More Front Suspension Travel
In addition to the rear-suspension travel increase, we also gave the CRF125F Big Wheel more travel up front for a balanced, plush ride.
With a 19-inch front wheel and a 16-inch wheel in the rear, the CRF125F Big Wheel will fit taller riders a little better. The right-sized bike is as important as wearing the right-sized boots or helmet.
Front Disc Brake
The front disc brake provides superior stopping power with the front disc rotor drilled for lightness and better wet-weather performance.
Riders can be tough on equipment, and taking a spill is a natural part of learning. But the CRF125F Big Wheel can handle it: with tough plastic fenders, tank and other body parts inspired by our bigger CRF motocross bikes, the CRF125F Big Wheel is engineered to shrug off the minor dings of the real world.
The CRF125F Big Wheel’s dependable four-stroke single-cylinder engine offers good performance with a wide powerband—perfect for a wide range of riders, including beginners. And for 2019, new fuel injection makes it even better and more efficient.
The four-speed gearbox is just like a full-sized motorcycle’s, giving your younger rider all the control they need.
New for 2019, fuel injection means the CRF125F Big Wheel starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel efficiency. And say goodbye to clogged pilot jets when you put this bike away for storage.
Intermediate Seat Height
It’s important to have a bike that’s sized right for your rider. The CRF125F Big Wheel’s 30.9-inch seat height helps build confidence right from the start.
Pro-Link® Rear Suspension
Progressive linkage connects a single heavy-duty shock to the swingarm, delivering an excellent combination of spring and damping rates over a wide range of riding conditions. This year the CRF125F Big Wheel gets nearly an extra ¾ inch of suspension travel, too.
New Steel Frame and Swingarm
Less experienced riders are hard on equipment, especially when they’re just starting out. That’s why we gave the CRF125F Big Wheel a strong, new, twin-spar-type steel frame and swingarm that are built to handle the bumps and dings of off-road riding.
Another benefit of fitting the CRF125F Big Wheel with fuel injection? Now it even meets California’s stringent CARB emissions standards for off-road motorcycles—good news for everyone.
The maintenance-free sealed battery helps ensure that your CRF125F Big Wheel is ready to ride when you are.
