The highly-anticipated new CFMOTO 800MT adventure motorcycle is expected to arrive in Ireland around June 2022. The exciting new dual-purpose machine received huge amounts of interest at the Motorcycle Live show in the UK recently and has a list of impressive specifications and innovative features.
There will be two models available, the entry-level Sport model and the premium Touring model which will be fully loaded with extras. Both models will be fitted with 3-piece aluminium luggage as standard and are expected to be competitively priced. As with all new CFMOTO motorcycles they will have an industry-leading 4-year warranty*.
799cc twin-cylinder engine
The 800MT has strong power and huge capability when facing long-distance rides. Equipped with a DOHC liquid-cooled 799cc twin-cylinder engine that produces 95hp at 9,000rpm and 77Nm at 7,500rpm. There are selectable riding modes to suit different conditions.
The Touring model is equipped with a bi-directional quickshifter, meaning that the rider only needs to use the clutch when setting off or coming to a stop. The quickshifter makes shifting through gears an effortless and quick operation, allowing for a more focused riding experience.
When the motorcycle is travelling above 25mph and is in 4th gear or higher, the rider can switch on the cruise control and use the RES and SET buttons to increase or decrease the speed respectively. With the assistance of cruise control, the rider can maintain a fixed speed without applying the throttle. It reduces rider fatigue and makes touring more comfortable; moreover, it can reduce unnecessary speed changes and enhance fuel efficiency.
Tyre pressure sensors
The rider can check tyre pressures in the menu at any time when riding and detect any deviations in tyre pressures promptly. The rider can also adjust the tyre pressure to adapt to different terrains.
The CFMOTO 800MT Touring is equipped with a cross-spoke rim, which has good impact resistance and reduces the weight of the wheels. The spoke wheels can cope with harsher road conditions and are easier to repair in emergencies.
Uneven terrain is usually uncomfortable and can be rough on your suspension, causing sudden jolts and twists and possible damage. A steering damper helps keep the motorcycle going straight over difficult terrain such as rocks or ruts and also smooths out jolts through the handlebars, thus reducing arm fatigue by minimising the effort to control the handlebars.
Aluminium side cases and top box
The silver aluminium panniers provide 63L storage space in total (35L and 28L). The aluminium top case has 6L storage space. The cases are dustproof, waterproof and lockable. There is a scratch-resistant lining on the inside of the cases. The cases are securely fitted to the mounting racks and can be quickly released.
The CF-SC slipper clutch helps to reduce the engine braking impact resulting in smoother downshifts, improving safety and riding comfort.
The 800MT features fully adjustable KYB upside-down telescopic front forks which are highly responsive and provide great feel. The front suspension travel is 160 mm and the rear is 150mm. There are 20-clicks adjustment of preload, compression and rebound damping. The suspension setup ensures that the 800MT is capable of tackling various terrains with confidence and stability. The forks tubes are protected by plastic guards that are integrated into the front-wheel cover
J. Juan brakes
The front brakes are J. Juan 320mm double-disc with 4-piston radial calipers. The rear brake is a J. Juan 260mm single disc with double-piston caliper. The J. Juan set-up provides excellent braking performance in all conditions and is easily comparable to competitors.
19-litre fuel tank
The 19-litre large-capacity fuel tank provides a great range for longer journeys. The fuel tank has a three-dimensional design that ergonomically enhances both standing and seating riding stability.
The CFMOTO 800MT is equipped with protective bars as standard. The protective bars are uniquely integrated into the design, giving it a distinctive and powerful look that also protects the fuel tank, front and mainframe.
The cornering ABS system controls the power output and brake force when cornering to ensure maximum stability and grip even in sudden deceleration events.
Colour TFT display
The 800MT features an easy-to-read 7” colour TFT display with built in GPS and bluetooth connectivity for both the rider and pillion.
Styling and colours
The new 800MT features full LED lights to complement the dynamic and modern styling. The Sport version will be available in striking blue or black colour options and the Touring model will be available in blue with gold rims.
