CFMOTO 300CL-X Arrives in Oz

CFMOTO have expanded their model lineup with the release of the learner legal 300CL-X which features the same neo-retro styling as its larger capacity sibling the 700CL-X Heritage.

The unique design not only represents a major point of differentiation from the two other CFMOTO 300cc singles – the 300SR sportsbike and the 300NK street fighter – but it also has an air of individuality compared to its more traditionally styled opposition.

The success of the 700CL-X Heritage since its Australian release two years ago provides an ideal launching pad for the compact 300CL-X, which is powered by a flexible and responsive 292cc, fuel-injected, DOHC, single-cylinder engine.

Power and torque are the same as the 300NK: 20.5kW (27.9hp) at 8750rpm and 25Nm at 7000rpm. The 300CL-X also benefits from upgraded engine mounts for even less vibration, and it has a forged piston to reduce weight and inertia. There’s a light-action slipper clutch for even smoother down changes.

The 300CL-X has a nimble and responsive chassis, an upright and commanding riding position, grippy CST tyres, striking ‘X element’ LED lighting, a round LCD dash, and built-in T-Box technology to monitor vehicle status alongside the complimentary CFMOTO app.

Pillions are also pampered with an expansive plush seat, which adds a ‘weekend capable’ element to the 300CL’s already commuter-friendly characteristics such as the low 795mm seat height and 150mm of ground clearance. Fuel capacity is 14.5 litres, which is extremely generous for a small-capacity single-cylinder machine.

The 300CL-X tracks on aluminium-alloy cast wheels and 17-inch rubber. The machine’s tail is also taut, adding to the classy posture. The 300CL-X will be available in Nebula White and Nebula Black, and the retail price is $5990 ride away.

Customising options also abound and include an engine guard, side bags, radiator cover, clip-on mirrors and a lightweight sprocket.

“We are rapt with the impending arrival of the 300CL-X,” said Michael Poynton, the director of CFMOTO Australia. “We first saw this neo-retro design language in the 700CL-X Heritage, and to extend it into the LAMS domain with the 300CL-X makes perfect sense.

“There’s really nothing quite like it in the smaller-capacity classes and, with a proven chassis, engine and electronics thanks to all the hard work already done on the existing 300cc models, we are confident the 300CL-X will create a lot of interest.”

The all-new 300CL-X is available now, interested customers are encouraged to contact their local CFMOTO motorcycle dealer for more information or visit cfmoto.com.au/300cl-x
