CFMOTO’s highly-anticipated 450MT adventure touring motorcycle debuted at the prestigious EICMA 2023, proudly demonstrating the marque’s commitment to innovation and passion for the adventure motorcycling segment.
Powered by CFMOTO’s proven 449cc parallel twin-engine platform, the 450MT has been expertly tuned and honed to cater to the demands of adventure riding. This engine delivers an impressive 32.5kW at 8,500 rpm and 44Nm at 6250 rpm, providing riders with the perfect blend of power and torque for an exhilarating journey. Dual balance shafts have been integrated to enhance throttle response and reduce vibrations, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable ride in all conditions. With a 270° crankshaft, the distinctive sound of the CFMOTO engine adds to the enjoyable acceleration experience. Remarkably, the 450MT maintains a dry weight of just 175kg, making it a lightweight yet robust choice for adventure enthusiasts.
The 450MT’s on and off-road capabilities are significantly enhanced with 200mm of travel offered by premium KYB suspension components, which feature adjustable compression and rebound damping and adjustable spring preload.
The ergonomics of the motorcycle have been thoughtfully fine-tuned to provide comfort during long journeys on windy roads while also ensuring complete control on the roughest tracks. A high-bend handlebar and dedicated foot pegs provide a comfortable and confident riding experience.
This adventure-focused motorcycle’s off-road spirit is perfectly embodied by both its technical specifications and its striking bodywork and styling. Equipped with 90/90-21 front and 140/70-18 rear wheels, a generous 220mm of ground clearance, and a comfortable 820mm seat height (800 mm with an optional low seat), the 450MT is well-prepared to tackle challenging routes.
To further enhance off-road capabilities, riders have the flexibility to disable the BOSCH dual-channel ABS on the rear wheel via a dedicated handlebar button. Additionally, the BOSCH Traction Control System (TCS) can be disengaged through the user-friendly 5″ TFT colour display, which also supports Bluetooth connectivity.
The eagerly anticipated CFMOTO 450MT is expected to be available at CFMOTO motorcycle dealers across Australia during the second quarter of 2024. Detailed pricing and final specifications will be confirmed as the release date approaches.
Interested customers are encouraged to contact their nearest CFMOTO motorcycle dealership for further information and to stay updated on the 450MT’s release.
