2014 Honda CRF125F Replaces CRF80F & CRF100F

2014 Honda CRF125F/CRF125FB Preview

Last year, Honda replaced its CRF70F, the popular entry-level enduro, with the larger CRF110F. Continuing on this trend, Honda has pulled the covers off its newest creation – the 2014 CRF125F.

The new model replaces the CRF80F and the CRF100F, and is available in two versions to accommodate different sized riders – the CRF125F and the CRF125FB (Big Wheel).

The CRF125F features a 28.9-inch seat height, the same height as the CRF80F it replaces. The CRF125FB Big Wheel features a 30.9-inch seat height, the same height as the CRF100F it replaces.

Both new models feature the 125cc single-cylinder OHC four-stroke engine, which is feed through a 20mm piston-valve carburetor. And unlike the kickstart on the CRF80F and the CRF100F, the new CRF125F models feature an electric start.

Like the motorcycles it replaces, the CRF125F models feature a four-speed gearbox matched to the broad torque band of the motor. The new bike also receives some revamped suspension components, including a 31mm front fork and Pro-Link single-shock rear suspension.

The 2014 Honda CRF125F will be available for $2799, and the CRF125FB Big Wheel for $3199.

Following are the features and specs of the 2014 Honda CRF125F/CRF125FB.

2014 Honda CRF125F / CRF125FB Features:

  • The CRF125F replaces the CRF80F and shares the same seat height of 28.9 inches, while the CRF125F Big Wheel replaces the CRF100F and offers the same 30.9-inch seat height.
  • With two models to choose from, the CRF125F/FB can be sized appropriately to fit riders of varying heights.
  • The 125cc SOHC engine is tuned for strong bottom-end torque that builds in a linear fashion through the midrange up to the top end.
  • The four-speed gearbox is well matched to the CRF125F/FB’s broad power spread.
  • New electric starter adds convenience over the kick-start only CRF80F and CRF100F models.
  • 31mm fork provides enhanced front suspension action.
  • Pro-Link single-shock rear suspension features a more sophisticated rear shock for better, more consistent rear suspension action.
  • New hydraulic front disc brake with 220mm rotor and 95mm rear drum brake provide strong stopping power.
  • Front brake lever is adjustable to suit the rider’s hand size.
  • Styling follows that of the race-winning CRF250R and CRF450R.
