Following on from the highly successful 450SR release last year, CFMOTO Australia is thrilled to announce the imminent arrival of the flagship 450SR S variant.
The 450SR S builds upon the already impressive qualities of its predecessor, elevating the platform to new heights. Boasting an evolutionary aerodynamic design that not only captivates the eyes but also enhances performance, this premium variant is a testament to CFMOTO’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of power, style, and technology.
450SR S Key Updates:
The addition of traction control ensures stable operation on slippery roads and various challenging conditions, providing riders with greater confidence in any situation.
Adjustable Front Suspension
The 37mm inverted front forks now feature separate function and adjustable compression and rebound damping, offering riders the ability to tailor their riding experience to their personal preferences.
Upgraded Braking System
A Brembo M40 front caliper provides strong and controlled braking power at all times and is supported by an Antilock Brake System to prevent wheel lock during emergency braking. The rear brake has been upgraded to a Φ240mm single disc, dual-piston caliper for optimal stopping power.
The new hidden exhaust seamlessly integrates with the rear of the bike, creating an aggressive and streamlined appearance, while the standard LED headlights and ESS emergency braking lights add to the overall safety and aesthetics.
Innovative Display and Connectivity
The 5-inch TFT display supports MotoPlay, including screen projection, music, navigation, and phone, ensuring riders stay connected while on the road. The motorcycle also supports over-the-air (OTA) upgrades for continuous improvement.
Powered by CFMOTO’s Highly Acclaimed Parallel Twin Engine
At the core of the CFMOTO 450SR S lies a technological marvel – the highly acclaimed 449.5cc parallel twin-cylinder engine. Sharing its lineage with the esteemed 450SR, this powerhouse of performance elevates your riding experience to unprecedented heights.
Key Engine Specifications:
Max Power: 34.5kW @ 9250rpm
Max Torque: 39.3N.m @ 7750rpm
Power-to-Weight Ratio of 0.22
The 272MQ engine boasts a 270° crankshaft imitating the sound and feel of a 90º V-twin. In contrast to the 360° and 180° parallel twin variants, the 270° crank provides a striking compromise between rocking couple and inertial forces with better primary balance than the 360° and a lower rocking couple than the 180°.
“The 450SR S represents CFMOTO’s unwavering commitment to delivering cutting-edge, high-quality and high-performing products for riders,” says Michael Poynton, General Manager at CFMOTO Australia. “We’ve been delighted to witness the 450SR being well-accepted by the Australian market, and introducing the premium 450SR S variant allows us to offer our customers even more options to experience the thrill and unparalleled value for money that CFMOTO motorcycles are quickly becoming known for.”
The 450SR S is set to hit the market during the first quarter of 2024 in two contemporary liveries – Zircon Black or Tundra Grey for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $9,290 Ride Away.
As part of CFMOTO’s dedication to customer satisfaction, the 450SR S will be supported by CFMOTO’s 3-Year warranty program.
