Designed to eventually replace Honda’s CRF80F, the Honda CRF125F features a larger capacity, air-cooled, four-speed engine with electric start, a brand new frame, updated suspension and improved performance.
Taking its cues from Honda’s championship winning CRF450R and CRF250R, the new CRF125F will be everything a young entry-level rider could possibly hope for.
The robust and low maintenance 124cc, air-cooled, SOHC engine delivers strong and linear bottom-end torque which is ideal for the younger rider.
Fed by a carburetor, the new airbox design which is located lengthwise, saves weight, increases airflow and also locates the compact battery needed for the electric starter.
Powerful, zero-fuss CDI ignition boosts performance, as does the new exhaust while the four-speed manual gearbox and clutch are smooth changing and easy to use.
To ensure a stable and engaging ride, a brand new steel diamond backbone frame gives the CRF125F’s chassis the perfect balance of rigidity and strength.
With the aim of being manageable for most youngsters aged 10 and above, the new CRF125F has a slim frame and low seat height.
Control is further guaranteed thanks to the wide-set footpegs and brake pedal which match narrower handlebars. Half-waffle rubber grips on the handlebars are the same used on the CRF450R.
With styling cues taken from the cutting edge design of Honda’s CRF450R and CRF250R, the CRF125F is sure to be an instant hit with aspiring champions.
