The engine produces a claimed 55kW (73hp) 8500rpm and 68Nm at 6500rpm, and other technical highlights include Bosch fuel-injection, split connecting rods, a slipper clutch and forged pistons for extra strength and reduced weight and inertia.
Moreover, stress-free one-touch cruise control and multiple power modes – Eco and Sport – are unique to the mid-capacity road bike segment, as is the adjustable headlight.
The 700CL-X Sport has been styled by CFMOTO’s European design team, with the attention to detail adding to the eye-catching aesthetics. The neo-retro café racer design blends elements such as the round headlight and naked frame with modern traits such as the LED lighting, bar-end mirrors, aluminium side plates on the fuel tank and integrated air intake.
The 700CL-X Sport tracks on Maxxis tyres and the suspension is by KYB with a fully adjustable 41mm upside-down fork and monoshock rear with rebound and preload adjustment. Travel front and rear is 150mm.
The seat height is 795mm (5mm less than the Heritage) and, even with the clip-on handlebars, the 700CL-X Sport’s seating position isn’t too aggressive: a triumph of both form and function.
The Sport’s nimble stance is evident in the specs sheet: overall length is reduced by 110mm from the Heritage, and it sits 138mm lower.
Weight is just 205kg with a full tank of fuel, thanks to features such as the aluminium-alloy swingarm.
