The full-powered revolution at CFMOTO has begun with a neo-retro bang.
Style oozes from every angle in this light-weight breakout, and the 693cc parallel twin engine has all the performance answers for city riding and weekend escapes.
And it’s in a package bursting with goodness, including an electronic throttle, anti-lock braking, multiple riding modes, cruise control, full LED lighting, USB charging and an adaptive headlight.
Plus a 3 Year Warranty
THE NEXT STEP: POWER TO THE MAX
No trimming the performances edges this time: the 700CL-X is the start of CFMOTO’s entry into the full-powered middleweight ranks! With 73hp (55kW) and 68Nm of linear grunt to play with from the extensively updated powerplant, you won’t be left wanting in any situation – even if there’s a pillion perched on the back.
SLIPPER CLUTCH TAKES CARE OF ANY SURPRISES
With an increase in performance the excitement can build, but the 700CL-X Heritage helps to smooth the edges with a slipper clutch – designed to ward off any over engine revs and rear wheel hopping on aggressive down changes.
A TOUCH OF CLASS
The ‘Heritage’ moniker has real meaning: the 700CL-X Heritage has beautiful aesthetics and lovely retro touches such as the round headlight. And the aluminium tank-wrapping side plates complete a watershed styling package.
STRESS-FREE ONE-TOUCH CRUISE CONTROL
Leave the irritating speed differentials to someone else: with one-touch cruise control – a new addition to the CFMOTO electronic arsenal – just set your speed and let the 700CL-X Heritage do the rest. Cruise control is a rarity in the middleweight road bike ranks, so you’re ahead of the pack straight away.
The ‘smarts’ in headlights these days has gone to another level and, as well as delivering a great field and depth of vision in low- and high-beam, the 700CL-X has an adaptive headlight that automatically adjusts to ambient brightness. Riding through a dark city tunnel? Let the Heritage look after you.
TRIANGLE DELIVERS A GREAT TUNE
Getting the riding ‘triangle’ – the relationship between the handlebars, seat and footpegs – just right is one of motorcycling’s biggest head scratches, but CFMOTO’s engineers have nailed the 700CL-X Heritage equation. The seat height is a low 800mm and, with its high handlebar, the machine promotes a relaxed, upright riding position.
LIGHT AND HUNGRY
Weight is just 196kg with a full tank of fuel, thanks to features such as the aluminium-alloy swingarm. Light equates to host of advantages, including the ability to turn on a dime and hit those apexes with millimetre precision!
Adjustable KYB suspension delivers a comfortable ride in the city, and when the pace – and pressure – builds the finesse and refinement continues. The limits are endless!
Compared to the LAMS-legal 650 range, the 700CL-X ups the ante by an extra 18hp (13kW) and 6Nm. Other technical highlights for the updated powerplant include Bosch fuel-injection, split connecting rods, and forged pistons for strength and reduced weight and inertia.
Slipper clutch helps reduce rear-wheel chatter when downshifting through the free-revving engine.
