A STEP UP BEFORE YOU STEP OUT.

2020 Honda CRF125FB Big Wheel:

BUILT FOR BIG LITTLE RIDERS
Riding is all about feel, and that can be a problem for riders who outgrow their bike. That’s why Honda has perfected the CRF125F Big Wheel, to deliver all the performance of our CRF125F with a more comfortable ride for taller riders. We took our CRF125F and set it up with larger diameter wheels and a longer swingarm that raises the seat height by two-inches. The proven single-cylinder engine with a four-speed transmission comes with fuel injection for broader power and better running in cold weather and high altitudes. There’s also a twin-spar steel frame, and plenty of suspension travel for an even more plush ride. Plus, an electric starter. The perfect size for many riders with just the right features, the CRF125F Big Wheel is sure to feel just right.

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.

A mid-sized trail bike with power for full-sized trail obstacles, the CRF125F is available in both a standard version and the Big Wheel, which accommodates taller riders via larger front- and rear wheels, longer-travel suspension and a higher seat. 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.

COMFORT
BIGGER WHEELS
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.

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

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.

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.

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.

PERFORMANCE
RELIABLE ENGINE
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. 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.

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

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

CLEAN-RUNNING ENGINE
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.

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

FUEL INJECTION
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.

TOUGH BODYWORK
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.

CONVENIENCE
ELECTRIC STARTER
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.

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