2018 Honda CRF125F

Right Fit, Right Ride.

Motorcycles, especially dirtbikes, are exceptionally personal vehicles. Riding a bike that doesn’t fit right is like trying to run a marathon in shoes that are too big or too small. That’s why Honda makes a whole family of dirt bikes, with plenty of sizes in between.

Here’s another thing: When Honda builds a smaller bike, they never go small on quality and features. And that’s definitely true of the CRF125F.

Not only is the engine the next step up from our CRF110F, the chassis, seat height, and wheels are too. It hits that sweet spot that makes it a great choice for both young riders and smaller adults. Loaded with features designed to make trail riding a fun, no-hassle experience, it’s also pure Honda when it comes to reliability and durability, thanks in part to its rugged, air-cooled design. An electric starter makes it easy to get going, while a four-speed transmission gives you all the control of a full-sized bike.

As to the way it looks, riders young and old will be proud to ride a CRF125F. Taking its styling cues right from our full-on motocross bikes it looks sharp on the trail, in your garage, and in the truck heading towards your favorite off-road area.

And as further proof of our commitment to give you the right-sized bike, we even make the CRF125F in a second, 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.


  • PROVEN MANUAL CLUTCH: Honda's heavy-duty clutch is smooth shifting and durable.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • SEALED BATTERY: A maintenance-free sealed battery helps ensure that your CRF125F is ready to ride when you are.
  • STURDY STEEL FRAME: Durability and quality are hallmarks of a Honda dirt bike. That's why the CRF125F uses a strong, steel frame that's built to handle the bumps and dings of off-road riding.
  • 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. And because it's a Honda, you know it's reliable, too.
  • PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION: Progressive linkage connects a single heavy-duty Showa® shock to the swingarm, delivering an excellent combination of spring and damping rates over a wide range of riding conditions.
  • FOUR-SPEED TRANSMISSION: The four-speed gearbox is just like a full-sized motorcycle’s, and gives your younger rider more control.
  • 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.
  • 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.
