While other brands are taking a more cautious approach towards 2021 due to the current coronavirus pandemic, CFMOTO is going ahead with their plans to introduce a few new models.
What surprised us is that while other manufacturers seek to introduce small-displacement two-wheeler to reach broader demographics, CFMOTO is busy with larger-displacements products.
Three new motorcycles are expected to land this year with 2021 CFMOTO 650NK, 700CL-X and the 800MT.
2021 CFMOTO 650NK
The 650NK is a mid-segment naked motorcycle that features a liquid-cooled 649cc parallel-twin engine that produces 60hp and 56Nm.
The motorcycle also packs with a dual-channel ABS, all-around LED lights, telescopic fork and a rear monoshock by KYB, while the braking hardware consists of twin disc setup and a single rear disc with a pair of Pirelli rubber.
The 650NK also comes with a new 5″ TFT screen and a 17L fuel tank.
2021 CFMOTO 700CL-X
This excites us the most, as the 700CL-X is CFMOTO modern take on the scrambler/cafe racer motorcycle, apart from offering higher specifications than the 650NK.
The 700CL-X is packed with a 693cc parallel-twin that produces 73hp @ 8,500rpm and 68Nm @ 7,000rpm and paired to a slipper clutch.
Like the 650NK, the suspension setup is handled by KYB with an adjustable 41mm upside/down fork and monoshock.
It also comes with ride-by-wire technology, riding modes and cruise control, and LED lights with DRL.
2021 CFMOTO 800MT
The 800MT is CFMOTO attempt to penetrate the adventure segment with an all-new dual-purpose motorcycle in partnership with KTM.
As a result, the same KTM LC8 799cc parallel-twin powers the 790 Adventure is injected into the 800MT.
The 800MT is expected to come in two variants, spokes and alloy rims, based on leaked photos.
The 800MT is expected to come with a TFT display, four-piston brake callipers, ride-by-wire, riding modes and cruise control.
