CFMoto’s keenly priced $8490 rideaway learner-approved sports tourer, the 650GT, is now available in two new liveries: Nebula White and Midnight Black.
The 650GT shares the same 180-degree engine as the NK naked models and the 650MT, producing 41.5kW (55.7hp) at 9500rpm and 62Nm at 7000rpm and is fed by Bosch fuel injection.
The bike’s dry weight is 213kg, while brakes are J.Juan calipers, of course with ABS.
There’s a lot of nice gear thrown in at that price. You get power sockets (12V and USB) and an adjustable screen (which allows for 50mm of movement), There’s also a dual-mode TFT dash and optional 32-litre hard panniers.
In keeping with the LAMS-approved nature of the bike, the seat height is a low 795mm and distance hounds will enjoy the tank capacity of 19 litres, which gives a theoretical range of in excess of 300km.
Like all CFMoto road bikes, the 650GT now comes with a three-year factory unlimited-kilometre warranty.
Earlier this year, CFMoto released a limited-edition SP version of its 650NK naked bike.
The SP comes at a $1000 premium over the standard 650NK at $7790 rideaway, but benefits from key upgrades like KYB suspension, Pirelli Angel ST tyres, a new slipper clutch and ‘enhanced’ gearbox, as well as a large 5.0-inch TFT display.
Also distinguishing the 650NK SP is a number of tweaked styling elements, including newly designed wheels, and refreshed graphics in Athens Blue or white/black.
While the standard 650NK uses an LCD display, the SP gains a full-colour TFT setup with Bluetooth smartphone connectivity.
