CFMOTO has revealed its latest mid-capacity street fighter with the launch of its 800NK models. Based on the NK-C22 concept, it will be offered in Sport and Advanced, and priced from $10,990 and $12,490 ride away respectively.
Due to arrive in Australia next month, it’s a consummate blend of exhilarating design, gripping performance, exceptional comfort, and superior technology integration. The 800NK range sports aggressive naked-bike styling and an impressive list of standard equipment.
Featuring a striking, arrow-shaped LED headlight, short tail, and sharp lines, the CFMOTO 800NK is tuned for brawling, powered by a lively KTM-derived 799cc parallel-twin DOHC engine punching out a maximum output of 74kW and 81Nm.
Lightweight forged aluminium pistons and chrome ceramic-coated piston pins are employed to reduce piston weight and, therefore, reduce reciprocating mass, resulting in a faster revving engine.
The pistons are connected via forged cracked connecting rods for precision fit and increased service life. The lightweight 75-degree forged one-piece crankshaft with plain bearings also reduces the rotating masses inside the engine.
Improved throttle response when accelerating or decelerating is the result. The CF-SC slipper clutch significantly improves downshifts, preventing the rear wheel from sudden blocks and slipping when the vehicle brakes suddenly and decelerates.
The 800NK Advanced is additionally equipped with a bi-directional quick shifter, enhancing the riding experience further with effortless gear changes. While many competitors feature non-adjustable suspension, both 800NK models boast adjustable KYB components.
The Ø43mm inverted fork features a split function design for compression and rebound damping and adjustable spring preload. Designed to be both imposing to look at and comfortable to ride, the 800NK has an upright but centralised riding position.
A single rear shock that features adjustable spring preload and rebound damping features. The suspension has been tuned for optimal support in spirited sports riding. without compromising comfort in normal riding conditions.
A high-strength, chrome-moly steel frame maintains optimal rigidity balance and is matched with an aluminium swingarm for superior stability. The bike’s lightweight design, tipping the scales at 186kg (189kg Advanced), further enhances its sporty attributes.
Lightweight aluminium alloy wheels also reduce un-sprung weight and contribute to the 800NK’s agile handling characteristics. The Advanced variant is fitted with a steering damper for enhanced stability.
J.Juan 4-piston radial-mount calipers are matched with dual Ø320mm floating discs for exemplary stopping power. The rear brake system employs a twin-piston J.Juan calliper paired with a single 260mm disc.
A lightweight ABS settup by BOSCH supports the braking package. The new 800NK range is jam-packed with advanced tech, including the choice of three riding modes (Street, Sport and Rain) via a ride-by-wire throttle.
Each offers a unique combination of torque output to suit varying road conditions, abilities, and preferred riding styles. A cruise control system assists with reducing rider fatigue, improves touring comfort, and is easily set and adjusted via buttons on the switch block.
CFMOTO’s advanced T-Box system enables smartphone connection via Bluetooth and the smartphone application. Through the CFMOTO RIDE App, the rider can access an array of features, including navigation, ride history and statistics.
Remote vehicle status, including a fuel indicator, the ability to conduct over-the-air (OTA) software updates, and new security features, including movement sensors, vehicle location and even a virtual electric fence are also included.
The 800NK Sport is equipped with a 5.0-inch TFT curved display with a wealth of information available at a glance via an easy-to-read layout, including a shift indicator for perfectly timed gear changes.
The 800NK Advanced employs an 8-inch TFT full-laminated touchscreen display with an automotive-grade MCU, bringing clear visual effects and smooth operation like a tablet. This can be fully controlled via a voice activation system, buttons or glove touch.
The new touchscreen display supports Apple CarPlay projection, multimedia interaction and Bluetooth connectivity. Another feature unique to the Advanced variant is keyless start, which can be activated when the key is 2.0-metres from the bike.
There’s a choice between two liveries, including Zircon Black or Nebula White. For further information, contact your local CFMOTO dealer.
