Here at Australian Road Rider we can’t wait to ride one, but until we do here’s information released by CFMOTO:
CFMOTO Australia is thrilled to introduce the all-new 450NK mid-capacity naked bike, joining the recently released 800NK in CFMOTO’s second-generation NK series lineup and purposely designed to ignite the motorcycling passion for new riders.
The 450NK is a bold testament to CFMOTO’s commitment to innovation and style. With its iconic front face exuding pure aggression and dominance, this new generation of NK motorcycles is poised to make its mark on the urban landscape. The wing-style front fender design effortlessly cuts through the air, while the meticulously carved hollow formations on either side of the fuel tank seamlessly channel air, eliminating resistance and ensuring a symphony of aerodynamics. Available in Nebula Black and Nebula White, these colours transcend mere hues, becoming beacons of recognition that will command attention wherever the road leads.

At the heart of the 450NK lies a 449cc parallel-twin engine that unleashes a commanding surge of power. Boasting a maximum power of 37kW at 9500rpm and a maximum torque of 39Nm at 7600rpm, it’s an explosive burst of energy that delivers strong acceleration with every gear change. With the standard-equipped slipper clutch, gear shifts are seamless and sharp downshifts are controlled, offering an unmatched level of stability. The double-balanced shaft design expertly curbs vibrations, ensuring swift and smooth acceleration. The 270° crankshaft angle delivers output characteristics akin to a V-twin, further enhancing the ride’s intensity, while the 14L fuel tank capacity ensures a cruising range of over 300km.

Crafted with the essence of a sports-grade street machine, the 450NK’s dynamic ergonomic design strikes the perfect balance between sportiness and comfort. The footrest and handlebar positioning ensures an optimal riding posture, while the sporty-oriented Ø37mm inverted front forks absorb impacts on uneven surfaces, enabling effortless traversal through rough Australian roads. Coupled with high-performance CST tires, the 450NK negotiates corners and intersections with tenacity.
Safety is paramount, and the 450NK is equipped with a front Ø320mm single floating disc paired with a J.Juan radial caliper, a Ø220mm single rear disc, and standard ABS, providing precise and controlled braking power in every situation. The innovative traction control system enhances grip and prevents accidents by timely intervention in slippery conditions. At just 165kg fully fuelled, the lightweight design ensures agile handling, even for beginners.

But the 450NK isn’t just another run-of-the-mill LAMS-approved motorcycle; it’s a technologically advanced companion that keeps you connected and informed on the road ahead. The 5-inch curved TFT display supports navigation projection, and the innovative T-box enables seamless vehicle-phone connectivity, bringing features like over-the-air (OTA) upgrades, security, and anti-theft functions, track recording, and real-time viewing of vehicle information through the CFMOTO RIDE app, right at your fingertips.
A culmination of CFMOTO’s advanced technology and mechanical prowess encapsulated in an unrivalled style that redefines the middleweight naked bike segment. The 450NK is more than a standard motorcycle – it’s a statement of power, style, and innovation.
