Torrance, CA: Excitement continues to build as American Honda introduces more new 2014 models for off-road enthusiasts. This ongoing infusion of innovative engineering highlights the commitment Honda is making to consumers, as more new models bring ever-higher capabilities across the board.
“For this 2014 model announcement, Honda is continuing its push to bring new and diverse machines to market while also delivering great value,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “Here we’re unveiling a new generation of our hugely popular FourTrax Rancher and FourTrax Foreman lines of ATVs with completely new frames, suspension, styling and more for elevated levels of performance. We’re also introducing two versions of the all-new CRF125F that features an electric-start engine along with two different wheel sizes to replace the CRF80 and CRF100F. The CRF125F offers an increase in engine displacement and a friendly, easy-to-use powerband, but also aggressive new styling and a brand-new chassis with upgraded front and rear suspension for optimum performance.
“These new models, along with additional Honda favorites returning for the new model year, demonstrate Honda’s commitment to providing more choices to our customers, and we’ll be introducing more exciting new models in the coming months as Honda continues to lead the expansion of the powersports market.”
- CRF125F/CRF125F Big Wheel
In 2013 the CRF110F replaced the immensely popular CRF70F within Honda's family of fun, entry-level off-road bikes. Now, two new larger-displacement 2014 CRF125F models enter the lineup, allowing consumers more choices in this market segment. The two CRF125F models offer unique wheel sizes that allow them to replace the CRF80F and CRF100F. With a seat height of 28.9 inches, the small-wheel CRF125F seat is the same height as the CRF80F it replaces, while the CRF125F Big Wheel features the same seat height—30.9 inches—as the CRF100F it replaces. This seat-height option allows riders to pick the CRF125F that fits best. Featuring an all-new electric-start 125cc single-cylinder OHC four-stroke engine tuned for loads of low-end grunt plus plenty of pull throughout the powerband, the CRF125Fs also feature a four-speed gearbox. Add a new rolling chassis with upgraded suspension components front and rear plus styling just like Honda’s CRF® motocross bikes, and you have a great addition to Honda’s off-road line of family machines with a bike for all riders—young to old, beginner to expert.
