CFMOTO 800MT to arrive in Australia Late 2021
CFMOTO has unveiled its all-new 800MT adventure family at the 2021 Beijing motorcycle show, which will span across two separate models – the 800MT Sport and the up-spec 800MT Touring. With full specifications also released for the KTM-powered duo, the 800MT is shaping up to be a great bike.
At the heart of the matter is KTM’s potent 799cc parallel twin, which produces 70kW (95hp) at 8000rpm and 88Nm at 6600rpm. The 800MTs also have a slipper clutch, Bosch electronic fuel injection and a ride-by-wire throttle with three riding modes: rain, off-road and road.
The 800MT Sport and 800MT Touring share the same 19-litre fuel capacity, expansive rider and pillion seats, tubular steel frame, fully adjustable KYB suspension, crash bars, 825mm seat height, adjustable screen and Spanish J.Juan brakes with ABS.
The major point of differentiation between the two is in the rolling stock: cast wheels on the Sport as opposed to spoked tubeless wheels on the Touring. Wheel sizes are 19-inch front and 17-inch rear – an ideal compromise for road and off-road riding.
