The bikes will be available with original acessories, including panniers and apparel

The newly designed split frame weighs 16.5 kg, while a 6.7 kg aluminium alloy swingarm gives the 700 CL-X Heritage a dry weight of 183 kg. The bikes also come with a standard slipper clutch, which offers a light feel on the clutch lever and also reduces rear-wheel chatter during aggressive downshifting. The on-board computer offers two riding modes, Economy and Sport, and in addition, the CFMoto 700 CL-X also comes with cruise control, as well as a USB charging point. While CFMoto announced operations in India, in collaboration with Bengaluru-based AMW, the brand has not been able to scale up operations, with the pandemic putting a speedbreaker on any dealership expansion plans anyway.

All three models of the CFMoto 700CL-X will have a clear neo-retro design

The new CFMoto 700CL-X series have a clear neo-retro design, with a design language in the family of the Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen. CFMoto also has a KTM association, and shares the same design house as KTM, Kiska Design. CFMoto also exclusively manufactures the 799 cc, parallel-twin LC8 motor of the KTM 790 Duke and KTM 790 Adventure. In fact, CFMoto is in the process of finalising its own adventure model based on the same engine.
