CFMoto Malaysia reveal to us that the 700 CL-X Heritage will be available in Malaysian markets soon with a price point of RM28,800.
The 700 CL-X engine started its life as collaboration with KTM and Kiska’s European design clearly states it. The 693cc engine has now been through enough updates and changes for CFMOTO to genuinely call it their own. It’s a punchy little unit, producing a handy 74bhp at 8,500rpm and 67.79Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. Those figures alone are flinging the stylish looking CL-X right into the mix with the Yamaha CP2-powered bikes (72bhp) and the Kawasaki Z650 (68bhp).
We first clapped our eyes on it at EICMA 2019, and it was clear even then that the project had already been some time in the making. Instead of forcing the CL-X to market, the team behind it have built up the buzz, kept the story going and are actually pointing its smart-looking nose into the world at just the right time. Weigh-in at 196kg complete with LCD meter, upside-down front forks, and front tyre Pirelli MT60 RS 110/80-R18 combine with rear tyre Pirelli MT60 RS 180/55-R17.
The CFMoto 700CL-X is expected to come in 2 colours and is priced at RM28,800 without registration, roadtax and insurance.
