CFMoto 675 SR A2-Compliant Details Revealed

As we mentioned previously, CFMoto is in the midst of launching two midrange sportbikes. One, a 500cc with an inline-four engine called the CFMoto 500 SR Voom, and a 675cc with a three-cylinder engine called the CFMoto 675 SR.

The manufacturer had shown off the 675 SR-R Aspar edition last month, wearing all the necessary Aspar colours and busy graphics, and they have just filed the type approval application for the production ready standard 675 SR.

CFMoto had said that the three-cylinder engine will produce more than 100hp during EICMA 2023, but the document shows on 70kW (94hp). What gives? Well, that is because of Europe’s restriction for A2 licence holders. Will there be a non-A2-compliant version? We shall see.

The approval document also stated the engine’s capacity at 674cc with three cylinders and a 72mm bore. That means the stroke must be around 55mm, giving a slightly smaller bore and longer stroke than 675cc triples made by the likes of Triumph (73mm bore) and MV Agusta (79mm bore). This could mean that the CFMoto’s engine has a lower rev ceiling but more torque in the lower and middle rev range.

Apart from the engine, this standard 675 SR lacks the longer and bigger winglets of the 675 SR-R Aspar, but it does have a longer tail and pillion seat, passengers footpegs. The Aspar edition is said to be a track-only bike, thus does not have lights, turn signals, mirrors. Good news is the bike retains the prototype’s brake ducts that feed cooling air to the J.Juan four-piston brake calipers.

There may be adjustable KYB forks like those on the CFMoto 800 NK and an aluminium swingarm. The wheelbase is 1399.6mm, slightly shorter than the Honda CBR650R’s. Wet weight is 195kg.

As for you top speed boffins, the manufacturer put the CFMoto 675 SR’s top speed at 219km/h for this A2 version, so the standard version should go faster.

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."
