Thanks to its high-quality and inexpensive street motorcycles. Chinese motorcycle maker CFMOTO has been making waves worldwide for a few years now. There is no doubt that the maker is a step beyond the rest of the Chinese manufacturers in quality, performance, aesthetics, and design.
KISKA Design, the design studio behind KTM’s street motorcycles, is one of the company’s famous collaborators. Also, CFMOTO has been working with KTM for a long time. They produce KTM bikes for China and other countries and own some of KTM’s LC8 engines. KTM’s 800cc LC8 engine features in the 800MT. A middleweight adventure bike from CFMOTO based on the 790 series.
CFMOTO has been eyeing the western market for some time now, and the firm has been operating in Europe for some time now. Several of its models will be making their premiere in the United States, where it just opened a branch. The 700 CL-X Sport, CFMOTO’s sportiest neo-retro motorcycle, will be released shortly in Europe. It’ll set you back 7,699 Euros, or almost $8000 in US dollars.
Four valves per cylinder, liquid cooling, electronic fuel injection, and a 693cc parallel-twin engine is powering the 700 CL-X Sport. In the middleweight naked bike class, led by Yamaha’s MT-07 and XSR700, the 180-degree crankshaft parallel-twin engine produces roughly 70 horsepower. The 700 CL-X stands out from the competitors thanks to its high-quality components. Brembo brakes and adjustable suspension are standard on the 700 CL-X when it leaves the factory.
Even the motorcycle’s tech components, like the cruise control and self-canceling turn signals, are amazing. A few features are missing from this vehicle, such as traction control and cornering ABS. More costly bikes, such as the KTM 890 Duke and the Triumph Street Triple 765, better value for money than the 700 CL-X Sport.
