CFMOTO are building on the success of the 450SR, released early last year, with the impending arrival of the 450SR S. Due here in the first quarter of this year, it will be priced from $9,290 ride away.
Boasting an evolutionary aerodynamic design that not only captivates the eyes but also enhances performance, this premium variant pushes the boundaries of power, style, and technology.
The addition of traction control ensures stable operation on slippery roads and in various challenging conditions, providing riders with greater confidence in any situation. The 37mm inverted front fork now features adjustable compression and rebound damping as well.
A Brembo M40 front calliper provides strong and controlled braking power and is supported by ABS to prevent wheel lock during emergency braking. The rear brake has been upgraded to a 240mm single disc, dual-piston calliper for optimal stopping power.
A new hidden exhaust seamlessly integrates with the rear of the bike, creating an aggressive and streamlined appearance, while standard LED headlights and ESS emergency braking lights add to the overall safety and aesthetics.
The 5.0-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.
At the core of the CFMOTO 450SR S lies a 449.5cc parallel twin-cylinder engine. Sharing its lineage with its sibling, it produces 34.5kW and 39.3Nm. The 272MQ engine boasts a 270-degree crankshaft, imitating the sound and feel of a 90-degree V-twin.
In contrast to the 360-degree and 180-degree parallel twin variants, the 270-degree crank provides a striking compromise between rocking couple and inertial forces, with better primary balance than the other two options.
To be offered in strictly limited numbers, it will be available in two liveries; Zircon Black and Tundra Grey. The 2024 CFMOTO 450SR S is backed by a 2-year unlimited kilometre warranty (boosted to 3-years if you have it serviced by a CFMOTO reseller).
