CFMOTO Motorcycles Australia has confirmed that its new 450SR sportsbike, which was previewed by the SR-C21 concept bike in November, will arrive in local showrooms in the fourth quarter of this year.

The CFMOTO 450SR will sit above the current 300SR ($6290) in the brand’s fully faired LAMS sportsbike line-up, however, pricing for the new model has yet to be locked in.

Powering the bike is a 450cc parallel twin that generates 37kW and 39Nm – a significant jump over the smaller capacity 300SR’s 21kW/25Nm 292cc single-cylinder unit.

The CFMOTO 450SR maintains much of the styling elements as previewed by the SR-C21, like the aggressive front-end with winglets, integrated mirrors and angry-eyed LED headlights, but drops some of the high-end suspension components for more conventional parts, and trades the concept’s single-sided swingarm for a standard setup.

Notably, the CFMOTO 450SR benefits from Brembo brake calipers and a slipper clutch as standard. It also features a 5.0-inch TFT screen, USB charging port and a quick-release air filter.

The bike weighs in at 168 kilograms, uses a 14-litre fuel tank and has a seat height of 795mm, however, 785mm and 815mm seats can be optioned.

More to come.
