The second iteration in CFMOTO’s  700CL-X, the Sport, will go on sale in Australia in early October 2021 for $10,490 ride away. The sport version shares the platform of the other 700 models but has Brembo M50 brakes, clip-ons, Maxxis MA ST2 tyres. Check out all the features below!

Compared to the 700CL-X Heritage, which went on sale earlier this year, the 700CL-X Sport takes on a decidedly more aggressive stance: sticky 17-inch rubber, petal discs and twin Brembo Stylema monobloc calipers, while other unique features include a solo seat, clip-on handlebars, windshield and round bar-end mirrors.

The Sport will feature some styling changes over the Classic as well as changes to the braking system.

The 700CL-X’s performance amounts to an increase of 18hp (13kW) and 6Nm over CFMOTO’s existing 649cc LAMS-based parallel twin found in the two 650NK variants as well as the 650MT and 650GT. The hike in capacity for the 693cc engine over the 649cc unit has been achieved by a 3mm increase in stroke, and other technical highlights for the updated powerplant include Bosch fuel-injection, split connecting rods, a slipper clutch, and forged pistons for strength and reduced weight.

The 700CL-X Sport tracks on Maxxis tyres and the suspension is by KYB with a fully adjustable 41mm upside-down fork and monoshock rear with rebound and preload adjustment.

Travel front and rear is 150mm. The seat height is 795mm (5mm less than the Heritage) and, even with the clip-on handlebars, the 700CL-X Sport’s seating position isn’t too aggressive: a triumph of both form and function.

The 700CL-X Sport will be available in a choice of two liveries: livery: Nebula White or Velocity Grey. The model comes with a three-year unlimited-kilometre warranty. Head to the CFMOTO website here to stay up to date with all the latest information.
