As the name suggest, the CFMOTO 800MT Sport R is a sportier take on the Chinese firm adventure-tourer.
- The 800MT Sport R takes inspiration from the firm’s involvement in Moto3.
- Features revised suspension, lower ground clearance and 17-inch wheels.
CFMOTO revealed the 800MT back in April 2021 as an adventure-type motorcycle that borrows much of its underpinnings from the KTM 790 Adventure.
That said, the 799cc LC8 parallel-twin engine makes 95hp @ 9,000rpm and 77Nm @ 7,500rpm.
While it was built as a potent adventure bike, CFMOTO decided to give it a twist during a special unveiling at EICMA, last week.
As a result, the 800MT Sport R features some changes to its chassis and ergonomics to make it sharper on the road or track.
Similar to the Ducati Multistrada V4 Pikes Peak, CFMOTO ditched the 19-inch rims and shod a road-focused 17-inch wheels.
The smaller wheels ensures the bike can be fitted with a sportier and track-focused tires.
In addition the 800MT Sport R also features revised KYB suspension, lower ground clearance and reworked rebound and compression damping settings.
CFMOTO also upgraded its stock J.Juan brake callipers to a high performance Brembo brakes. Other notable features include CFMOTO Pruestel GP Moto3 team inspired colourway.
Unfortunately, no words from CFMOTO whether the 800MT Sport R will be going into production anytime soon. If it does, expect some tweak than the concept shown in Milan.
