CFMOTO 800MT

CFMOTO launches 800MT model range

Arriving in Australia in late 2021

Last updated:

CFMOTO has unveiled its new KTM-powered 800MT adventure family at the 2021 Beijing motorcycle show.

The two-model range consists of the 800MT Sport and the up-spec 800MT Touring which will arrive to tackle Australia’s bush in late 2021 with prices announced soon.

At the heart of both bikes is KTM’s  799cc parallel twin, which produces 70kW (95hp) at 8000rpm and 88Nm at 6600rpm.

The 800MTs also have a slipper clutch, Bosch electronic fuel injection and a ride-by-wire throttle with three riding modes: rain, off-road and road.

The 800MT Sport and 800MT Touring share the same 19-litre fuel capacity, expansive rider and pillion seats, tubular steel frame, fully adjustable KYB suspension, crash bars, 825mm seat height, adjustable screen and Spanish J.Juan brakes with ABS.

The major point of differentiation between the two is in the rolling stock: cast wheels on the Sport as opposed to spoked tubeless wheels on the Touring. Wheel sizes are 19-inch front and 17-inch rear – an ideal compromise for road and off-road riding.

800 MT standard features:

  • A seven-inch TFT screen with Bluetooth connectivity and a navigation function (as well as complementary App);
  • Cruise control;
  • Adjustable screen;
  • Fog lights;
  • Crash bars;
  • USB and 12-volt charging; and
  • LED lights and turn signals.

800MT Touring features:

  • Tyre pressure monitoring;
  • A two-way quickshifter;
  • Handguards;
  • Alloy bashplate;
  • Steering damper; and
  • Keyless start.

CFMOTO 800MTCFMOTO Australia director Michael Poynton describes the official launch of the 800MTs in China last weekend as “a huge moment”.

“It not only adds a new and exciting chapter to the CFMOTO and KTM technical and operational alliance, but continues CFMOTO’s push into new and exciting markets,” he says.

“We’re already seeing that with the upcoming 700CL-X middleweight full-powered range, and now the adventure segments beckons  – and we are confident the 800MTs will make a huge impression with their technical flair and impressive styling.”

They will come with a three-year, unlimited kilometres warranty under CFMOTO current ‘2 plus 1’ deal.
