Chinese motorcycle manufacturer Benda officially launched its cruiser, the LFC700, a year after unveiling it at China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition as a concept.
Interestingly, the production-ready LFC700 looks pretty similar to CIMA’s concept and comes in two variants, Standard and High-Power.
The Benda LFC700 s powered by an 680cc inline-four liquid-cooled engine with the Standard making 84.4hp @ 10,000rpm and 60Nm @ 8,000rpm while the High-Power offers 92.5hp @ 11,000rpm and 63Nm @ 8,500rpm.
According to Benda, the base variant can reach a top speed of 170km/h and 195km/h for the flagship version.
While both variants get a 20L fuel tank, only the High-Power variants come equipped with a slipper clutch.
Unlike the concept, the production version does not come with a ride-by-wire and cruise control function, which we assume keeps the cost low.
The High-Power variants also get an inverted front fork and rear monoshock from KYB, Brembo callipers (Nissin for the Standard variant) and ABS dual-channel.
Other notable features include:
- all LED lighting
- TFT display with navigation function
- 310mm rear tyre
- 235kg (kerb weight)
You can get your hands on the all-new LFC700 for a starting price of CNY38,800 (RM24,000) for the Standard and CNY45,800 (RM29,400) for the high-end model.
Meanwhile, the LFC700 is expected to be available in selected countries across Asia and Europe soon.
