The CRF125FB will be everything a young entry-level rider could possibly hope for.
The robust and low maintenance 124cc, air-cooled, SOHC engine delivers strong and linear bottom-end torque which is ideal for the younger rider.
Fed by a carburetor, the airbox design which is located lengthwise, saves weight, increases airflow and also locates the compact battery needed for the electric starter.
Powerful, zero-fuss CDI ignition boosts performance, the four-speed manual gearbox and clutch are smooth changing and easy to use.
To ensure a stable and engaging ride, the steel diamond backbone frame gives the CRF125F’s chassis the perfect balance of rigidity and strength.
With the aim of being manageable for most youngsters aged 10 and above, the CRF125FB has a slim frame and low seat height.
Control is further guaranteed thanks to the wide-set footpegs and brake pedal which match narrower handlebars. Half-waffle rubber grips on the handlebars are the same used on the CRF450R.
Beefed-up 31mm telescopic forks feature heavier weight springs while the new rear shock uses a 32mm diameter piston damper and separate air/oil/gas pressurization chambers to reduce emulsification.
The high suspension quality means bump absorption, ride quality and tracking are much improved. A steel swingarm works through Honda’s Pro-Link system, and needle bearings have been used throughout to reduce friction.
For a bigger bike feel and improved stability the CRF125FB uses a 19-inch front and 16-inch rear.
A 220mm front hydraulic disc brake – with adjustable span lever – deals out consistent and easy to modulate stopping power. It’s complemented by the 95mm drum rear.
With styling cues taken from the cutting edge design of Honda’s CRF450R and CRF250R, the CRF125FB is sure to be an instant hit with aspiring champions.
