To ensure a stable and engaging ride, the steel diamond backbone frame gives the CRF125F_„Žs 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_„Žs 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_„Žs complemented by the 95mm drum rear.
With styling cues taken from the cutting edge design of Honda_„Žs CRF450R and CRF250R, the CRF125FB is sure to be an instant hit with aspiring champions.
