New CFMoto 450SR middleweight sport will reportedly launch in Malaysia during MotoGP this October.
Radical and sporty CFMoto 450SR will be launched locally in Malaysia later this year.
It packs a peppy 449cc parallel-twin with 270-degree crankshaft, good for 50HP and 39Nm.
The CFMoto 450SR is an exciting prospect. The Chinese brand unveiled what appears to be the road-going version of its SR-C21 concept last month, and it seems local fans need not wait too long to see this bike hit our shores.
According to reports, local distributors CFMoto Malaysia are set to introduce the CFMoto 450SR locally later this year. While there is now official word from CFMoto Malaysia, but there is a strong indicator that the 450SR could make an appearance in October during the Malaysian MotoGP weekend at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC).
Surely, this move aligns with the brand as it is present in the World Moto3 Championship through the CFMoto Racing PrüstelGP team.
Aptly, the CFMoto 450SR slots above the brand’s smaller 250SR quarter-litre model. It reportedly packs a liquid-cooled 449cc parallel-twin brimmed with a 270-degree crankshaft. The mill promises 50HP and 39NM – figures that see it rival against the Kawasaki Ninja 400 and KTM RC390.
Notably, the CFMoto 450SR will feature MotoGP-inspired winglets that CFMoto claims are capable of generating nearly 2KG (4.4 pounds) of front downforce at 120KM/H. It will also feature Brembo braking and ABS, though it won’t be the same race-spec unit seen in the SR-C21 concept.
Though CFMoto have yet to reveal full specifications for the 450SR model, the brand has already begun taking orders in its home market (China) right now where it commands a price of RMB31,980 – approx. RM21,368.72. More details in terms of specification are expected to arise in the coming months.
