CFMOTO’s recently revealed SR Vision concept bike previews a new high-end supersports model that is expected to materialise in production form sometime next year.
While no technical specifications have been formally announced, the SR Vision Concept bolsters CFMOTO’s motorsport intentions, as well as its campaign to enter new production segments globally.
The bike appears to be a litre-class supersports model, and wears the ‘SR’ nameplate that debuted on the brand’s smaller capacity 300SR sportsbike.
Styling is reminiscent of high-end Italian models, like the Ducati Panigale V4 and Aprilia RSV4, while its big-winged front-end could have borrowed from KTM’s MotoGP racing machines.
At least in concept form, the new CFMOTO SR would not look out of place in a Superbike paddock with its aggressive aerodynamic bodywork and carbon-fibre brake covers, as well as performance parts like Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension and a twin SC Project exhaust system.
The new CFMOTO ‘SR’ is also distinguished by its large TFT dash, futuristic LED lighting signature, a single-sided swingarm and racey Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa tyres.
CFMOTO’s local distributor, Mojo Motorcycles, today told INFO MOTO that it is always looking to expand its portfolio and would welcome the opportunity to offer the production supersports model in Australian showrooms.
INFO MOTO expects CFMOTO to announce its entry into the Moto3 grid this week, as it plans to launch a rebranded KTM racebike to compete next season.
Currently, CFMOTO offers just one fully faired sportsbike, the 300SR, which is available locally from $5790 rideaway, with its 700CL-X naked sportsbike its largest capacity offering.
The new CFMOTO model that is previewed by the SR Vision Concept will likely sit at the top of its line-up as its flagship ‘halo’ offering, following the launch of its 800MT adventure bike.
