2021 Honda CRF125F Features
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The four-speed gearbox is just like a full-sized motorcycle’s, and gives your younger rider all the control they need.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A maintenance-free sealed battery helps ensure that your CRF125F is ready to ride when you are.
