CFMOTO’s first cruiser model now in the Philippines

A few months ago, we were honored to be one of the first few riders in the world to test CFMOTO’s 450NK during its world premiere here in the country.

Now, CFMOTO unleashes another model that utilizes its 450cc platform: the 450CL-C cruiser.

According to Motostrada – the exclusive distributor of CFMOTO motorcycles in the country – the new 450CL-C is a cruiser motorcycle that goes beyond the ordinary, embodying the perfect fusion of detail and classic design.

The 450CL-C is a visual masterpiece, capturing attention with its streamlined design reminiscent of a classic era. The meticulously polished fuel tank cap, reflective like a mirror, and the 1989 nameplate with a silver ring logo celebrate a timeless legacy. The classic round headlight illuminates the path ahead, while the integrated tail light leaves a lasting impression.

Exhaust system

The dual-chamber exhaust system of the 450CL-C produces a distinctive and captivating exhaust note that harmonizes with every twist of the throttle. The refined matte ceramic paint adds a touch of sophistication, making each journey a passionate performance resonating with the soul-stirring melody of the 450CL-C.

The 450CL-C redefines cruiser performance with an impressive max power of 41 Ps at 8,000 rpm and a max torque of 42 Nm at 6,250 rpm. The 270° crankshaft angle and double balance shaft ensure a smooth and controlled ride, while the innovative Gates belt drive efficiently transfers power, combining modern engineering with classic cruiser allure. This belt drive, as opposed to a traditional chain drive, could last up to 70,000 kilometers before needing a replacement, according to Motostrada.

Handling

Striking a balance between comfort and style, the 450CL-C features a leather seat treated with Pinstripe Retro Technology, providing unrivaled comfort and timeless style. With a seat height of just 690 mm and a curb weight of 181 kg, every ride becomes an embodiment of the true cruising spirit.
