Receiving the award is an honour to the the CFMoto Design and R&D Departments. The company says that their bikes’ designs were defined through their two wheel Design Director Charles Solsona, who is based tat CFMoto’s R&D Centre in Italy.

Solsona said, “To win the prestigious Red Dot Award is a great result for the whole team. The 800NK embodies the core values of our Brand: design, technology and performance, and this achievement is a great way to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of our company, as well as recognising our commitment to developing our own design philosophy.”

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."
