CFMOTO have debuted their 450MT adventure touring motorcycle, which is expected to be available in Australia in Q2 next year. Powered by the brand’s proven 449cc parallel twin engine, it offers 32.5kW of power and 44Nm of torque.
Expertly tuned and honed to cater to the demands of adventure riding, it features dual balance shafts to enhance throttle response and reduce vibrations, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable ride in all conditions.
With a 270-degree crankshaft, the distinctive sound of the CFMOTO engine adds to the enjoyable acceleration experience. Remarkably, the 450MT maintains a dry weight of just 175kg, making it a lightweight yet robust choice for adventure enthusiasts.
The ergonomics have been fine-tuned to provide comfort during long journeys on windy roads, while also ensuring complete control on the roughest tracks. A high-bend handlebar and dedicated foot pegs provide a confident riding experience.
Equipped with 90/90-21 front and 140/70-18 rear wheels, 220mm of ground clearance, and an 820mm seat height (800 mm with an optional low seat), the 450MT is well-prepared to tackle challenging routes.
To enhance its off road capabilities, riders can disable the dual-channel ABS on the rear wheel via a dedicated handlebar button. Traction control can be disengaged through the 5.0-inch TFT colour display (which supports Bluetooth connectivity).
To be offered in Zephyr Blue or Tundra Grey colour schemes, the 450MT will feature
a KYB upside-down front fork with adjustable compression and rebound damping, while a single KYB rear shock with adjustable spring preload, compression and rebound damping will support the rear.
Its braking package includes a J.Juan four-piston calliper on a single 320mm disc up front, with a single-piston calliper on a 240mm disc at the rear. Further specifications will be provided closer to launch, along with pricing.
