CFMOTO has this week released its new CFMOTO 450SR S, which adds a number of key performance upgrades compared to the entry-spec 450SR, priced from $9290 rideaway in Australia.
This translates to a $1000 premium for the new ‘S’ variant, with the standard 450SR carrying on from $8290.
Distinguishing the 450SR S is a single-sided swingarm setup, new 37mm upside-down fork that are adjustable for compression and rebound, a new underslung exhaust, revised aerodynamic winglets, a larger rear brake disc (240mm) with a twin-piston caliper and a traction control system.
The bike carries over the 449cc parallel-twin engine which puts out 34.5kW and 29Nm, and is mated with a slipper-clutch-equipped six-speed gearbox.
It also maintains the Brembo front brake package consisting of a four-piston caliper squeezing a single 320mm disc.
A 5.0-inch TFT dash comes standard and can be connected to a rider’s smartphone for features like lap timing, vehicle status, over-the-air updates and extra security measures to prevent theft.
The 2024 CFMOTO 450SR S is available in two colour schemes: Zircon Black and Tundra Grey.
