CFMoto has unveiled a brand-new motorcycle at EICMA 2019, the CFMoto 700 CL-X. The bike will be available in three variants, CL-X Sport, CL-X Adventure and CL-X Heritage.
Staying true to the patent images leaked in June earlier this year, the CFMoto 700 CL-X is a neo-retro café-racer and scrambler. All three variants will be shod with a circular headlamp with an X-shaped LED daytime running light. The bike gets a brand new 692.2 cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled mill possibly tracing its origins to the KTM 790 Duke. Coupled to a 6-speed gearbox, the engine produces 75 PS of power and 66.6 Nm of torque. Besides that, the engine boasts of a forged piston, split-type connection rod, electronic throttle and sliding clutch.
The CFMoto 700 CL-X Sport gets a tapered fairing and stripped back detailing with lower set clip-on and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Supercorsa tyres at both ends. The Heritage variant gets a tanned leather seat positioned for a comfortable ride along with wide handlebars. The bike also gets a dual-tone paint job, road-biased tyres and alloy wheels. The CFMoto 700 CX-L Adventure, on the other hand, gets spoked wheels, knobby tyres as well as a raised handlebar. The Adventure and Heritage variants get golden coloured upside-down fork, while the Sport variant gets a blackened look.
Anchors include discs at both ends, assisted by the safety net of a dual-channel ABS. All three variants get an LCD instrumentation console with Bluetooth connectivity. Also, on offer as a standard feature will be cruise control
The new CFMoto 700 CL-X range will compete with the Ducati Scrambler and will be a part of their renewed focus in Europe. The Chinese manufacturer has already carved a name in the region with its ATVs.
