CFMOTO Australia has hinted at a new 300CL-X modern retro model to launch in 2022, following the overseas reveal of its 250CL-X naked bike.
While the smaller-capacity CL-X has yet to be confirmed for Australia, a spokesperson from CFMOTO’s local distributor told INFO MOTO that it will likely release the new LAMS model in some form later this year.
While specification details are scarce, the new CL-X appears to be based on the brand’s 250NK/300NK ($4290) naked bike platform, though distinguished by retro design cues that debuted on the larger 700CL-X range in 2021.
CFMOTO Australia may offer the bike in the 300cc configuration to offer a modest boost to outputs, alongside beefier suspension and the inclusion of a TFT display, among other minor changes.
For reference, the current CFMOTO 300NK is motivated by a 292cc single-cylinder engine that generates 20.5kW and 25Nm, and is matched with a six-speed gearbox.
As standard, the bike features upside-down forks, J.Juan brakes with a single 300mm disc at the front end and a colour TFT dash.
The new lightweight CL-X will likely adopt similar equipment upgrades for the Australian market if – and when – it eventually goes on sale.
More to come.
