2023 Honda CRF125FB Big Wheel: MADE FOR HAVING FUN.

Introducing the 2023 Honda CRF125FB Big Wheel…

From the first-time off-road rider to the young trail rider, the CRF125F inspires confidence. Available in both standard and Big Wheel configurations, the CRF125F is 50-state off-road legal, providing access to trails across the country. It’s easy to maintain, thanks in part to Keihin electronic fuel injection that delivers smooth, easy-to-use power for reliable traction in a variety of trail conditions. Inspired by the CRF Performance line, both versions feature striking graphics and aggressive styling. As the midpoint of the CRF trail lineup, the CRF125F is great for enjoying the ride with friends and family.
No matter what the sport, if you want to perform your best, you need equipment that fits. And that’s exactly why we offer the CRF125F Big Wheel: It combines the rider-friendly power of a 125 with an overall bike size that fits some taller riders better, providing a great match for both a rider’s skill and height. It’s really a genius concept—we take our CRF125F and fit it with a longer swingarm and larger diameter wheels. That raises the seat height by about two inches. What doesn’t change is our proven Honda single-cylinder engine, featuring fuel injection for broader power and better running in cold weather and high altitudes. There’s also a four-speed transmission and a twin-spar steel frame, along with plenty of suspension travel. And did we mention the electric starter? Plus, if you’re looking for the same great bike, but in a slightly smaller overall package, check out our CRF125F. Try them both—you can’t go wrong here!
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.
Reliable four-stroke engine
The CRF125FB’s dependable four-stroke, single-cylinder engine offers strong performance with a wide powerband—perfect for a wide range of riders, including beginners. Fuel injection makes it even better and more efficient.
Fuel injection means the CRF125FB starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it not only helps reduce emissions, enhance performance and fuel efficiency but also helps ensure a smooth flow of power for easier handling and less troublesome operation and maintenance.
LED indicators
Handy LED lights indicate ignition ON, low fuel, and PGM-FI status. No second guessing if you’ve left the key on or you’re about to run out of gas, and another way Honda helps make basic motorcycle operation easy.
Rugged steel frame
The CRF125FB uses a strong twin-spar frame that borrows its design from the CRF-R line, providing enhanced rigidity with just the right amount of tuned flex for optimum handling in a variety of conditions. Combining strenth with light weight, it’s a stable foundation for both novice and skilled riders.
Proven manual clutch
Honda’s heavy-duty clutch is durable and helps promote smooth shifting by working seamlessly with the four-speed gearbox. This is just like a full-sized motorcycle, giving your rider all the control they need.
Higher seat height
It’s important to have a bike that’s sized right for your rider. The CRF125FB’s 785 mm (30.9 in.) seat height helps build confidence right from the start.
Electric starter
Push a button and go—that’s how easy it is to get going on a CRF125FB. Starts after a tip-over are a snap and no need to worry about trying to kick start the bike when you turn off the engine.
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.
Small Wheel version available (CRF125F)
Want something a little smaller? Check out our CRF125F—the same great bike but a better fit for smaller 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.
The CRF125FB’s leading axle Showa forks and Pro-Link Showa shock deliver an excellent combination of spring and damping rates to cover a wide range of riding conditions.
Honda Announces 2023 CRF Trail Family

  • The trail-bike line continues to deliver industry-leading performance and reliability
  • CRF50F and CRF110F available in Red and White color ways for 2023

ALPHARETTA, Georgia (August 5, 2022) – American Honda confirmed the return of its CRF Trail family, the most popular line of trail motorcycles in the industry. From the full-size CRF250F, to the pint-size CRF50F, the four-model lineup is renowned for its on-trail performance, reliability and ease of maintenance.
The CRF Trail range of motorcycles suits riders of all sizes and abilities. The easy-to-ride CRF50F is the smallest in the lineup, built for the next generation of riders, with an automatic clutch, low seat height and reliable 49cc four-stroke engine. Thanks in part to its approachable nature, clean-running fuel injection system and push-button electric start, the CRF110F is the industry’s top-selling dirt bike. In addition to the iconic Honda red, the CRF50F and CRF110F are also available in new colors designed to appeal to a wider variety of young riders. Praised for its reliable performance—and available in two sizes—the CRF125F is the midpoint of the lineup, ideal for new and young riders thanks to its smooth, linear power. Also returning for 2023, the capable and versatile CRF250F inspires confidence on the trail, making it a great option for riders of all skill levels.

Just like the pros use, the CRF125F Big Wheel gets half-waffle pattern grips. Might as well start them off right!
It’s important to have a bike that’s sized right for the rider. The CRF125F Big Wheel’s 30.9-inch seat height helps build confidence right from the start.
The CRF125F Big Wheel’s dependable four-stroke single-cylinder engine offers good performance with a wide powerband—perfect for a range of riders, including beginners. Fuel injection makes it even better and more efficient.

The heavy-duty Honda clutch is durable and helps promote smooth shifting.
The four-speed gearbox is just like a full-sized motorcycle’s, giving you all the control you they need.
Less experienced riders are hard on equipment, especially when they’re just starting out. That’s why we gave the CRF125F Big Wheel a strong, twin-spar-type steel frame and swingarm that are built to handle the bumps and dings of off-road riding.
Another benefit of fitting the CRF125F Big Wheel with fuel injection? It even meets California’s stringent CARB emissions standards for off-road motorcycles—good news for everyone.
The front disc brake provides superior stopping power with the front disc rotor drilled for lightness and better wet-weather performance.
Fuel injection means the CRF125F Big Wheel starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhances performance and fuel efficiency. And say goodbye to clogged pilot jets when you put this bike away for storage.
Riders can be tough on equipment, and taking a spill is a natural part of learning. But the CRF125F Big Wheel can handle it: with tough plastic fenders, tank and other bodywork, the CRF125F Big Wheel is engineered to shrug off the minor dings of the real world. Plus, we’ve updated the graphics this year too!
Push-button starting makes getting started easier in all kinds of conditions, and the efficient design adds minimal weight.
For added security, the keyed ignition switch lets you control who goes riding and when, important if you have younger riders in the house.
