CFMoto have just opened a new office and research and development building in Hangzhou and later this year will commission their new 150,000sqm high-tech factory. It has a potential production capacity of 50,000 larger-capacity (790cc-plus) motorcycles a year.
Company chairman and owner Lai Guogui says they wanted to demonstrate their capability with larger-displacement models.
“While other companies in the domestic Chinese powersports industry were developing 125/150cc bikes, CFMoro was making our 650NK model, on which we are already on to the second generation,” he says.
“And while other companies are developing 250/300/400cc bikes, CFMoto is developing a 1000cc-plus bike.”
In Australia, the Chinese company has sold more than 25,000 vehicles since it debuted in 2005 through its Australian-owned distributor, Mojo Motorcycles. They now have more than 80 dealers.
They have also increased their two-year warranty to three years for all CFMoto motorcycles bought until the end of the year.
