Honda revealed its 2014 CRF125F. For the new year the motorcycle has received a few style modifications, a taller seat and bigger wheels (19" front and 16" rear). It will be available at your local dealer from September 2013.
The bike is built around an air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke, SOHC, two-valve engine with a displacement of 124.9cc. The engine is brought to life by an electric starter and is mated on a 4-speed manual gearbox which is perfectly suited for the needs of an off road motorcycle.
The motorcycle’s backbone is represented by a sturdy steel frame that rolls on a Pro-Link rear suspension and 31mm telescopic forks.
The stopping power is handled by a 220mm front disc brake paired with a rear drum.
The 2014 Honda CRF125F is offered with a starting price of $2,799 and comes with a six months warranty.
