Experience Motocross or trail riding with the Honda CRF125F | Motus Honda

The CRF125F is a well proven package and a mainstay of the Honda line up as it offers the perfect package for younger riders looking to graduate to the bigger tracks or gnarlier trails. For 2023 the Honda CRF125F received a new graphical upgrade to ensure that its styling continues to represent that of the latest CRF model family.

With its fun performance and styling that matches that of its larger motocross siblings, the CRF125F is the perfect springboard for younger riders graduating from models such as the CRF50F and CRF110F to larger, more race orientated machinery while its versatile design ensures that it is the perfect trail bike for budding off-road riders.

The CRF12F boasts a twin spar steel frame with a heavy-duty design inspired by the frame architecture of the race ready CRF250R and CRF450R motocrossers which provides a great balance between rigidity and suppleness. The CRF125F is available in both standard and big wheel derivatives. Regular models ride on 17-inch and 14-inch rear wheels while big wheel derivatives utilise a 19-inch front wheel and a 16-inch rear wheel.

Conventional 31mm telescopic forks deliver confidence inspiring performance and are paired with a Pro-link swingarm and single shock for consistent, high-quality performance.

Like all the members of the CRF family, the CRF125F wears its heritage with pride. The 4.5 litre steel fuel tank, with integrated fuel pump and fuel filter is protected by frame design shields. For 2023 the CRF125F wears a striking all-red paint scheme and bold new graphics that celebrate Honda’s off-road racing pedigree.

This racy bodywork is paired with a low seat height, complimented by high, wide motocross bars that feature half-waffle grips, perfect for smaller hands. A handlebar mounted multi function switch incorporates the starter button, ignition indicator, fuel-injection system status and low fuel indicator warning. The brake lever is adjustable for both comfort and performance.

The CRF125F’s 125cc four-stroke, air cooled, engine delivers smooth, easy-to-use power complimented by the Keihin electronically controlled fuel injection system that ensures linear and hesitation free power delivery throughout the rev range. The engine is paired to a smooth-shifting, four speed transmission that is perfectly matched to this broad powerband. An electric starter ensures ease of use and a kick starter is available as a backup.

The 2023 CRF125F is sold with a three-month warranty and service intervals are pegged at every 1000km. Pricing starts at R51 299.
