2016 Honda CRF125F

Sized Right For Fun

Few things in life are as much pure fun as a dirtbike, as long as it’s the right-sized dirtbike. That’s why Honda builds so many differently sized models, and one of our best is the CRF125F. The next size up from our CRF110F, it’s the perfect choice for both young riders and smaller adults. Loaded with features designed to make trail riding a relaxing, no-hassle experience, it’s also pure Honda when it comes to reliability and durability.

That means you get to concentrate on having a good time rather than trailside repairs or a bike that was designed by cutting corners. And when it comes to looks, the CRF125F takes its styling cues right from our full-on motocross bikes like our CRF450R and CRF250R. An electric starter makes it easy to get underway, while a four-speed transmission gives you all the control of a full-sized bike.

Looking for something just a little bigger? There’s even a big-wheel version for taller riders.

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.

Standard Features

  • 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.
  • FOUR-SPEED TRANSMISSION: The four-speed gearbox is just like a full-sized motorcycle’s, and gives your younger rider more control.
  • PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION: Progressive linkage connects a single shock to the swingarm, delivering an excellent combination of spring and damping rates over a wide range of riding conditions with a heavy-duty Showa® rear shock.
  • ELECTRIC STARTER: The push-button starter makes getting going easier in all kinds of conditions; its efficient design adds minimal weight.
  • BIG-WHEEL VERSION AVAILABLEWant something a little taller? Check out our CRF125F Big Wheel—the same great bike but with two inches more legroom.
  • TOUGH BODYWORK: Riders can be tough 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, the CRF125F is engineered to shrug off the minor dings of the real world.
  • RELIABLE ENGINE: The CRF125F dependable four-stroke single-cylinder engine offers good performance with a wide powerband—perfect for a wide range of riders, including beginners. And because it's a Honda, you know it's reliable, too.
  • 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.
  • SEATED BATTERY: The maintenance-free sealed battery helps ensure that your CRF125F Big Wheel is ready to ride when you are.
  • STURDY STEEL FRAME: Durability and quality are hallmarks of a Honda dirtbike. That's why the CRF125F Big Wheel uses a strong steel frame that's built to handle the bumps and dings of off-road riding.
  • LOW SEAT HEIGHT: It's important to have a bike that's sized right for your rider. The CRF125F's low 28.9-inch seat height helps build confidence right from the start.
  • PROVEN MANUAL CLUTCH: Honda's heavy-duty clutch is smooth shifting and durable.
