2022 Honda CRF-F Lineup First Look: Five Trailbikes

2022 is a holding year for the five-motorcycle Honda CRF-F lineup for trailbikes. The Honda CRF110F had been running old graphics for a few years, and for 2022 it gets a facelift patterned after the CRF450R motocrossers. Given the resurgence of interest in off-road riding, this is as good a time as any to give a quick rundown of the 2022 Honda CRF-F lineup.

Dating back to the 1960s, this is the motorcycle that started countless riding careers. It is one of the most reliable motorcycles you can buy, having undoubtedly withstood the test of time. To keep beginners happy, the 2022 Honda CRF50F features an auto-clutch/manual-shift three-speed transmission and a 21.6-inch seat height. Maintenance is easy and infrequent. The only room for improvement is that it still retains a carburetor and lacks electric start—the only non-EFI kickstart motor in the 2022 CRF-F lineup. However, like all of the other CRF-Fs, the CRF50F is Green Sticker legal in California.

This is the next step up the ladder for the aspiring rider, or someone who got started a few years later in life. The 2022 Honda CRF110F enjoys contemporary graphics this year, and everything else is unchanged. We can’t find anything to complain about, as the power delivery of the fuel-injected, air-cooled, long-stroke, two-valve motor is beginner-friendly, while the chassis is more than up to the job at hand. Reliability is outstanding, and maintenance requirements are minimal.

This is a big progression for developing riders, as it introduces a manual clutch to the proceedings of the four-speed transmission. The wheels get bigger, with a 17-/14-inch combination that opens up accessibility to more technical trails. With fuel injection and a long-stroke motor, the CRF125F is easy to ride. Suspension is closing in on six inches at both ends, with the shock getting linkage assistance. The seat height is a manageable 29.1 inches. There’s even a front disc brake to give the 2022 Honda CRF125F a more big-bike look.

For taller riders, the 2022 Honda CRF125F Big Wheel offers the standard CRF125F frame with larger wheels, increased suspension travel, and a longer wheelbase. The suspension travel is over 6.5 inches at both ends. At the same time, the 19-/16-inch wheel combination means easier rolling over obstacles, as well as an impressive choice of tires for the more serious rider. The CRF125F Big Wheel still has a curb weight under 200 pounds and a seat height below 31 inches.

The flagship of the CRF-Fs, the 2022 Honda CRF250F is a full-sized motorcycle that will fit most adults. With over nine inches of suspension travel, plus the standard 21-/18-inch wheel combination, the CRF250F can be ridden at a good clip—just remember that it’s not designed for big jumps or skipping whoops. Shod with Pirelli Scorpion XC Mid Hard tires and running dual disc brakes, the CRF250F can take on challenging trails. Ground clearance is a roomy 11.3 inches, and the seat height just lower than 35 inches. At 265 pounds, it’s not a lightweight, though it carries its weight well.
