2020 Honda CRF125F Big WheelHonda

The Honda CRF125F and CRF125F Big Wheel first hit the trailbike market in 2014 and replaced the long-standing CRF80F and CRF100F. The CRF125F is spec’d with a 17-inch front wheel and a 14-inch rear wheel. As the name implies, the CRF125 Big Wheel has a larger 19-inch front wheel and 16-inch rear wheel that raise the seat height by approximately 2 inches, serving as an excellent stepping stone to a full size trailbike. It also has a longer swingarm.
