The latest version of CFMOTO’s learner legal 650GT has now arrived in Australia in two colour options for 2021, Nebula White and Midnight Black, priced at just $8,490 ride-away.
The 650GT shares the same 180-degree free-revving powerplant as the NK naked models and the 650MT, producing 41.5 kW (55.7 hp) at 9500 rpm and 62 Nm at 7000 rpm and fed by Bosch fuel injection. Thanks to a gear-driven counterbalancer, the 650GT is vibe-free all the way up to the 10,500 rpm rev limiter.
In keeping the GT (Gran Turismo or grand touring) virtues, the machine has protective bodywork, a spacious cockpit, 19-litre fuel tank (for a range of well over 300 km), power sockets (12V and USB) and an adjustable screen (which allows for 50 mm of movement), while there’s a dual-mode TFT dash and optional 32-litre hard panniers.
The 650GT’s curves and distinctive headlight design are from KISKA, the same European-based styling house used by KTM, while other componentry includes KYB suspension, a tubular steel frame, six-speed transmission, chain final drive and cast-alloy wheels with quality Metzeler Roadtec rubber.
The 650GT’s dry weight is 213 kg, while stopping power comes courtesy of Spanish J.Juan calipers integrated with twin-channel Continental ABS.
The seat height is a low 795 mm and the bike has a compact 1415 mm wheelbase ensuring sporty handling. Like all CFMOTO road bikes, the 650GT now comes with a three-year factory unlimited-kilometre warranty.
