There’s been talk that the Chinese factory is working on a smaller version of its 700CL-X.

With the opportunity to make use of the single cylinder engine that powers its 300NK naked sportbike, it’s not exactly a surprise that CFMOTO’s planning to release the 300CL-X. The bikes bigger brother has been received well, with the first reports suggesting it goes as well as it looks. That means there’s likely plenty of appetite for a smaller version.


It’s expected that the CFMOTO 300CL-X will look largely similar to the 700, with a steel multi-tube chassis, wide bars, USD forks up front, a monoshock at the rear, a TFT dash, J Juan brakes and an 18inch front wheel. It’ll probably be scaled down slightly, but all of the same good stuff will probably still be there. The big difference will be the addition of a 292 cc single-cylinder engine. If it’s left in the same state of tune as its siblings, we can expect 28hp at 8,500 rpm and 25 Nm at 7,000 rpm. That’ll do.

At this stage, there’s been no official confirmation from the factory – but considering the speed that the Chinese firm has been rolling out bikes of late, there’s a good chance we won’t have to wait too long to find out more.
