CFMOTO’s latest adventure bike is heating things up in Far North Queensland, with news they’ve partnered with Cape York Motorcycle Adventures to supply 15 new 800MT Touring bikes for use on their eight day Cairns to Darwin and seven day Cairns to Cape York tours.
The maiden voyage, a luxury Cape York trip, has recently been completed, with the business’ owners, Roy and Renae Kunda, praising the bike’s balance and comfort, as well as its look and the value it offers.
“On first sight, I was really impressed with the look of the 800MT Touring; it’s a lot of bike for the money,” Roy said.
“My guides and I rode the fleet of 15 from the dealer, Northern Performance Motorcycles, to our workshop in Cairns and we were all surprised at how well balanced and comfortable they are on the road. I can’t wait to put them through their paces up the Cape.”
The Cape York Motorcycle Adventures 800MT Touring bikes are fitted with added protection in the form of crash bars and a headlight guard – minimum requirements for the hurly-burly of off-road tours – as well as ‘soft’ panniers.
The two-model 800MT range, the $12,990 ride away Sport and $14,490 ride away Touring, went on sale in January, utilising a KTM-sourced parallel-twin engine and with a level of specification that is quintessential CFMOTO, above and beyond.
The 800MT Touring comes with tyre pressure monitoring, a centre stand, up/down quick shifter, handguards, an alloy bash plate, steering damper, and heated grips and seat.
“When Roy and Renae approached us about the 800MT joining their line-up, we were flattered as they are veterans in the motorcycle adventure space and don’t make decisions on a whim,” CFMOTO Australia director Michael Poynton said.
“We’re confident the 800MT Touring will be a hit with the customers at Cape York Motorcycle Adventures, in a package brimming with technical flair and impressive styling.”
As well as the standard three, six, seven and eight-day tours, Cape York Motorcycle Adventures can also arrange private charters. For more information, visit capeyorkmotorcycles.com.au
