The sporty version of the 700CL-X CF retro bike is called the Moto 700CL-X Sport and is due to hit dealerships this summer. Price: 7,699 euros.
Like the 700CL-X, the CF Moto 700CL-X Sport comes with a 693 cc in-line in-line engine that develops 70 horsepower at 8750 rpm and 61 Nm of maximum torque at 6500 rpm. Also in the Sport version, it is suspended in a tubular steel bridge frame. Eight valves and two camshafts operate in the cylinder head.
Shifting is via a six-speed gearbox and an anti-lock brake clutch. As with the base model, top speed will be around 180 km/h – not bad for a mid-range model. The manufacturer limits the consumption to 4.8 liters, and then the range will be up to 270 kilometers with the 13-liter tank.
Handlebars, single seat, rear rump
The CF Moto 700CL-X Sport differs from the base bike, among other things, in its handlebar, single seat and short rear rack. Lower handlebar end mirrors also ensure rearview and a narrow cockpit hood covers the LC Round Display, which sits completely free in front of the handlebars on the base bike.
CF Moto 700CL-X Sport chassis
The rear wheel swing arm with the upper cables on the frame is supported by a horizontal, direct-linked, fully adjustable center spring strut. Fully adjustable US dollar forklift guides and cushions are at the front. The spring elements come from KYB Bosch ABS on both wheels – the front stopper uses a 320 disc Front disc 18″ lip with 110/80 tire and at rear 17″ wheel with 180/180 55 tire. Pirelli tires installed as original hardware.”, as we have already described in detail the 700 CL-X. The big difference between the Sport, however, is the radially-mounted Brembo calipers and the dual discs up front. The CF Moto 700CL-X Sport rolls on 17-inch black wheels and lights up all around with LED technology. It also comes with self-disabling turn signals and a USB port for charging mobile devices. We think like the 700 CL-X, it comes with two selectable driving modes and cruise control.
The CF Moto Clip-on is available in two colors ‘Nebula White / Velocity Gray’ – likely from Summer 2022. Price 7,699 euros.
Yes, manufacturers from China have a lot of tailwind and money is not a problem.
Never, Passion, History and Quality, China does not learn overnight.
Survey “Have the Chinese become serious competitors to certified motorcycle manufacturers?” It clearly answers our view of things (see above). But rather than open the barrel of “China versus well-known manufacturers” here, we’d rather be happy with more options for motorcyclists.
