VISION IN MOTION to spark emotion: CFMOTO showed up in the great halls of the Fiera Milano for the 80th EICMA show. The company from Hangzhou, China, and one of the fastest-growing brands in the business with vast international expansion and a rapidly varied product portfolio.

125NK CONCEPT: Next Generation of Cut the edge

The NK family is ready to welcome a new member. With the 125NK CONCEPT, CFMOTO is ready to fill the void in the 125 cc segment with a bold, daring and unique vision for the perfect Fun Machine. A naked bike for the next generation of riders commited to precision, uniqueness and ready to Cut The Edge like never before.

The 125NK CONCEPT’s identity is immediate and attractive through the design feeling introduced by the NK-C22 Concept bike. The single-sided swingarm highlights the carbon fiber cover on the rear wheel, while the slim tail grows up to the rider’s seat, nearby which we find a sporty exhaust system that underlines the transbody line of the bike. The big shoulders of the tank are enhanced by unique side panels that develop to the front, where is placed a LED light with a dedicated signature layout. 

On the front wheel, the carbon fiber air duct it’s a straight recall to performance, while the front mudguard is one of the recognisable details of the NK family. All these design features are enhanced by a color scheme that effectively transmits the vibrant dynamism of this Concept bike. The 125NK CONCEPT anticipates one of the most awaited products on the CFMOTO line up. It will enlarge the NK family, but also will take a special place into the heart of the young two-wheels enthusiasts.


MT-X CONCEPT: Explorer Machine

The MT-X CONCEPT is the manifesto of “X” adventures to be faced when focused on a high-tech vision, while living a present time in continuous motion. A unique styling of the graphics and colors give the right personality to a capable machine like the MT-X Concept: the octanium color is synonym of adventure, of a mature attitude to new challenges, while the fluo accent is the CFMOTO racing spirit declined into fun and limitless exploration.

Define your limits, and shatter them. The MT-X CONCEPT the manifesto of “X” adventures to be faced when focused on a high-tech vision, while living a present time in continuous motion. The graphics and colors blend streaks of adventure and racing, while the boldness of the design is marked by lines and surfaces that sinuously flow from the back to the front of the bike, and vice versa. 

The muscular front end is charactherized by a full LED headlight, while the vertical 8” TFT touchscreen is inspired by the navigation tower of rally bikes. Also, the floating side wings are a direct recall to the adventure bikes that marked an era of desert races. 21” front wheel, high ground clearance and increased suspension travel are crucial features to overcome every obstacle along the path. The rear panels, a flat rider’s seat and a slim tail are distinctive traits of an off-road DNA inhered into the MT-X Concept.  


Every design element plays a key role to perfectly embed the fuel tank, placed with a lower position compared to other MT products so far. An abundance of fuel stored in the right spot effectively lower the center of gravity, optimizing the overall balance and improving the riding experience in every condition. No boundaries can contain the limitless surge for adventure of the ultimate Explorer Machine.


675 Engine: The first three-cylinder engine developed by CFMOTO

The 675cc three-cylinder powerplant is a completely new in-house project with low weight, high durability, rapid acceleration (due to a low inertia crank) and smooth delivery (due to the FCC slipper clutch) that will equip new exciting models coming out in 2024. The engine will deliver a maximum torque of 68 Nm at 8250 rpm, a maximum power of over 100 HP and, furthermore, will reach a peak of 12300 rpm. Those impressive numbers will lead our new vehicles to an impressive to 0-100 km/h acceleration in just in 3 seconds. 


The unit is forged from aluminum to reach a 10% weight reduction compared to similar motors. For our first ever three-cylinder engine, the weight is limited to 55kg. Forged aluminum pistons contribute to an 8% more strength compared to non-forged ones.

450MT: Off-road Adventuring with a punch

CFMOTO’s proven and successful 449cc parallel twin platform has been tuned and honed for the fun and excitement of adventure riding. The 450MT’s engine delivers 32.5kW at 8500 rom rpm and 44 Nm at 6250 rpm, while dual balance shafts improve the smoothness of the throttle response, reducing drastically the vibrations. With a 270° crankshaft, the distinctive sound of the CFMOTO engine thrills the users at every acceleration, in every condition. This also makes the riding experience incredibly easy, if we also consider a 175kg dry weight. 

Handling on and off-road is boosted with 200mm travel offered by the KYB suspensions, adjustable in the preload and on 20 levels of damping. Ergonomics are finely tuned to provide comfort cruising in windy-roads, but also guarantee full control in the roughest trails with a high-bent handlebar and dedicated foodpegs. 

The bike’s off-road soul is expressed through the tech specs as well as the bodywork and styling; 90/90-21” front and 140/70-18” rear wheels, 220mm ground clearance and 820mm seat height (800 mm with optional seat).

To improve the off-road capabilities, the BOSCH dual-channel ABS can be turned off on the rear wheel through a dedicated handlebar button. Also the BOSCH TCS can be disengaged through the curved 5” TFT color display with Bluetooth connectivity. 


800NK GP: Ready to hit the track

The most powerful naked bike of the NK range is infused with the ambition and the essence behind CFMOTO’s Moto3™ racing project as part of MotoGP™. The 800NK GP is ready to hit the track with a sporty riding position, and elite technical features from the same suppliers that support the race team.

From tires to brakes, high-end adjustable suspensions, slip-on exhaust, raised footrests, lowered handlebar, CNC-ed parts, fork and swingarm protection, and the single seat configuration. Everything on the NK GP is race oriented, and not just the special Moto3™ livery that brings the Cut The Edge into the racetrack.  


Custom Works: CL-C LOW RIDE and CL-X SPIRIT


The vibes continue with the CL family: the 450CL-C makes its first ever appearance in European soil. The new “Cool Life Cruising” model of CFMOTO is backed by the 700CL-X family. Innovation is a major priority for CFMOTO, but so is expression and design: that’s why Custom Works is born. Through the best craftsmen techniques in the whole motorcycle industry, the CL-C LOW RIDE and CL-X SPIRIT make their appearance in EICMA 2023. 

The CL-C LOW RIDE takes all the clear stylistic cues of the CL-C line and brings a whole new veneer of cool. The bobber style of the rear tail is enhanced by the lenticular rim fitting a large sized tyre, while the single-seat configuration is embellished by contrasting stitching. The aggressive attitude of the LOW RIDE is enhanced by the dual exhaust system, while the engine casing recalls the accent color all around the bike. The CL-C traditional teardrop shaped fuel tank has been chromed and modified.

Honoring the tradition, 2023 brings the sight of the CL-X SPIRIT right to the front of the stage.The scrambler soul is emboldened by the new higher, dual exhaust that sits under a freshly profiled saddle with revised shape and a high-quality leather. Another part of the makeover as are the spoked wheels with off-road tires.The updated suspensions and brakes keep the scrambler vibes rolling with a large amount of style thanks to the dedicated paint of the bodywork that perfectly highlights the tubular frame.

Power, practicality, space, reliability and robustness are the normal UFORCE characteristics, but the ‘E’ adds an eco-friendly element while still providing the range to get you where you need to go.
