2022 Honda CRF125F

2022 Honda CRF125F: THE SWEET SPOT IN OUR LINEUP.

Introducing the 2022 Honda CRF125F…

Honda’s hugely popular midsize trail bike, the CRF125F is available in both standard and Big Wheel versions, the latter featuring larger wheels, longer-travel suspension and a higher seat that make it an ideal option for taller riders. Both versions make learning to ride a blast, especially since they require minimal maintenance, thanks in part to Keihin electronic fuel injection that delivers year-round 50-state off-road legality. Boasting looks that mimic those of the CRF Performance line, the CRF125F and CRF125F Big Wheel promise years of recreational trail-riding enjoyment.

Whether you’re looking for a new dirt bike offering more fun to more riders, or you want to maximize your own enjoyment on the trail, the CRF125F is your machine. Sized for young riders and smaller adults, it’s full of features that help you focus on the best parts of the experience. Like fuel injection, which offers reliable and easy-to-use power. The four-speed transmission provides the control of a full-sized bike. Long-travel suspension delivers a more comfortable ride. And bold new graphics are inspired from our championship-winning CRF motocrossers. For taller riders who want the same awesome features and powerband, check out the CRF125F Big Wheel.

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

BETTER BIKE, BETTER RIDER.
Ready to light the fuse for any kid who wants to progress to bigger fire power.
It may be small, but the CRF125F shares the same styling and some of the features of its bigger CRF brothers. Hit the electric start and the air-cooled SOHC engine is eager to go, tuned specifically for smooth bottom end torque it’s perfect for junior riders. The diamond-spar steel frame, 31mm diameter telescopic fork with 140mm of travel and Honda Pro-Link rear suspension system provide a tough chassis to bash on through the rough stuff.

Honda Offers Robust Lineup of Green Sticker-Compliant Dirt Bikes CRF450X, CRF-F trail family are off-road legal in California for 2022

Honda continues to offer a number of dirt bike models that meet the California Air Resources Board’s new emissions standards for 2022 model-year and later off-highway vehicles. CARB’s updated rules eliminate new Red Sticker vehicle sales for model year 2022 and onward. Model-year 2022 and later off-highway vehicles that are not Green Sticker compliant will not be allowed to operate in California SVRAs.

Announced last March, the 2022 CRF450X continues to be eligible for a Green Sticker and may be legally ridden year-round at SVRAs. Suitable for trail riding, this popular model performs at such a high level that it is also capable in competition, having amassed 14 victories in the Baja 1000, including the last six editions.

In addition, the entire CRF Trail family—the CRF50F, CRF110F, CRF125F and CRF250F—remains Green Sticker compliant. The road-legal CRF450RL may also be legally used in California SVRAs.

“With CARB’s changing regulations, we’ve heard from a number of customers who are concerned about being able to ride their dirt bikes in California public riding areas, but many Honda models are already Green Sticker compliant,” said Brandon Wilson, Manager of Sports & Experiential at American Honda. “We’ve moved our off-road line in this direction over the past several years, enabling us to offer one of the powersports industry’s more substantial lineups of Green Sticker-compliant models. Equipping off-highway vehicles with the necessary clean-running technology isn’t always easy, but doing so is an important way of protecting the environment and keeping public riding areas beautiful.”

Honda’s lineup of Green Sticker-compliant powersports products isn’t limited to two-wheel models, as many Honda ATVs and side-by-sides can also be used year-round in California’s public off-road areas.

 

 

2022 Honda CRF125F Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

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.

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.
