MIDDLE OF THE LINEUP. OVER THE TOP FUN..

2020 Honda CRF125F:

If there’s one middle-child that’s never feels left out, it’s the Honda CRF125F. It’s designed to hit that sweet spot of no-hassle fun for younger riders and smaller adults. Fuel injection gives it broad, reliable power. The twin-spar steel frame can handle the dings of off-road use. The long-travel suspension delivers a plush ride. And the electric starter and a four-speed transmission give you all the control of a full-sized bike. It may be in the middle of our off-road lineup, but the CRF125F leads the pack in fun.

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.

The SOHC 124cc engine delivers its power smoothly, and Keihin electronic fuel injection offers dependability and clean running for 50-state off-road legality, while the steel twin-spar frame and Showa suspension deliver a smooth, nimble ride. With their fun performance and CRF Performance line looks, both versions of the CRF125F promise years of recreational trail-riding enjoyment.

Honda Announces 2020 Dirt Bikes – Performance updates to CRF250R highlight extensive CRF lineup

From the fire-breathing, high-flying CRF450RWE all the way down to the friendly, cute CRF50F, Honda’s off-road motorcycle lineup is the most all-encompassing and versatile on the powersports market, a fact that was driven home when American Honda today made its first new-model announcement of the 2020 model year. With eight and four machines respectively, Honda’s CRF Performance and CRF Trail families offer something for everyone, whether they be pro-level racers looking to give Ken Roczen and Cole Seely a run for their money, youngsters preparing for their first two-wheel forays, or anyone in between.

The newest iterations of Honda’s proven full-size motocross models—the CRF250R and CRF450R, as well as the elite CRF450RWE—all receive important upgrades to raise performance levels even higher, while the CRF150R mini is back again in 2020. The CRF450RX and CRF250RX closed-course off-road racers benefit from the same improvements as their track-focused siblings, while the CRF450X off-roader and CRF450L dual-sport machine return for the new model year with updated graphics. At the other end of the spectrum, the approachable, fun 2020 CRF250F, CRF125F, CRF110F and CRF50F await recreational riders with trail-focused performance and proven reliability.

“For generations, Honda has demonstrated its commitment to the dirt bike market, and that’s never been truer than now,” said Chris Cox, American Honda’s Manager of Experiential Marketing/Press. “Our 2020 lineup of off-road models, including the CRF Performance and CRF Trail families, comprises machines that are top-of-class for motocross, off-road competition, trail riding and, in the case of the CRF450L, even using streets to extend off-road adventures. With such a capable and diverse collection of motorcycles, you can once again expect to see a lot of red on tracks and trails from coast to coast.”

 

CRF PERFORMANCE LINE
Last year saw Honda significantly expand its CRF Performance family to include machines for riding applications including motocross, closed-course off-road, pure off-road, and even dual sport. For 2020, a number of models in the lineup get important upgrades to keep Red Riders running at the front of the pack.

 

CRF TRAIL LINE
Motorcycling is armed with legions of riders who got their start on Honda trail bikes, and with the 2020 lineup of CRF Trail models, that trend is sure to continue long into the future.

PERFORMANCE
RELIABLE ENGINE
The CRF125F’s dependable four-stroke, single-cylinder engine offers good performance with a wide powerband—perfect for a wide range of riders, including beginners. Fuel injection makes it even better and more efficient.

HANDLING
PROVEN MANUAL CLUTCH
Honda’s heavy-duty clutch is durable and helps promote smooth shifting.

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 gets an extra inch of suspension travel, too.

MORE FRONT SUSPENSION TRAVEL
In addition to the rear-suspension travel increase, we also gave the CRF125F more travel up front for a balanced, plush ride.

ENGINEERING
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 a strong, twin-spar-type steel frame and swingarm that are built to handle the bumps and dings of off-road riding.

COMFORT
BIG-WHEEL VERSION AVAILABLE
Want something a little larger? Check out our CRF125F Big Wheel—the same great bike but a better fit for taller riders.

FRONT DISC BRAKE
The front disc brake provides superior stopping power, and the front disc rotor is drilled for lightness and better wet-weather performance.

CLEAN-RUNNING ENGINE
Another benefit of fitting the CRF125F with fuel injection? Now it even meets California’s stringent CARB emissions standards for off-road motorcycles—good news for everyone.

FOUR-SPEED TRANSMISSION
The four-speed gearbox is just like a full-sized motorcycle’s, and gives your younger rider all the control they need.

FUEL INJECTION
Fuel injection means the CRF125F 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.

HALF-WAFFLE GRIPS
Just like the pros use, the CRF125F gets half-waffle pattern grips. Might as well start them off right!

LOW SEAT HEIGHT
It’s important to have a bike that’s sized right for your rider. The CRF125F’s low 29.1-inch seat height helps build confidence right from the start.

TOUGH BODYWORK
Riders can be hard on equipment, and taking a spill is a natural part of learning. But the CRF125F can handle it: with tough plastic fenders, tank and other body parts inspired by our bigger CRF motocross bikes, the CRF125F is engineered to shrug off the minor dings of the real world.

CONVENIENCE
ELECTRIC STARTER
The push-button starter makes getting going easier in all kinds of conditions, and its 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.

SEALED BATTERY
A maintenance-free sealed battery helps ensure that your CRF125F is ready to ride when you are.
