CFMoto 450SR S Launched in Europe

CFMoto has launched a racier version of the 450SR, called the CFMoto 450SR S.

It is powered by a 46.3bhp, 449.5cc parallel-twin engine with a 270-degree firing order (to mimic that of a 90-degree V-Twin). There are twin balancers to check engine vibes. Other features include those already on the 450SR such as winglets, and full colour TFT dash, but the main distinction here is a single-sided swingarm.

While sharing the same platform as the SR, updates to the new 450SR S further include an underslung exhaust, winglets, a bigger 240mm rear brake disc, and beefier 37mm upside down forks with damping adjustment. As with its sibling, that engine is installed in a Chro-Moly chassis which weighs just 11kg when combined with the subframe.

CFMoto claims a kerb weight of 179kg. The tank holds 14 litres of fuel, with the manufacturer claiming up nearly 300km of range.

Braking power is provided by Brembo on both ends, supported with ABS.

A five inch curved TFT dash allowing you to control the traction control, and mobile connectivity. There’s also automatic headlights and an ESS emergency braking feature, which flashes the rear stop light to alert other road users of hard deceleration.

Will the CFMoto 450SR S be heading to Malaysia? We hope so!

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
