CFMOTO’s all-new 450NK mid-capacity naked bike will be joining the recently released 800NK in the second-generation NK series.
Styling includes a futuristic front face, winged front fender, and sharply carved tank. Colour options include Nebula Black or Nebula White.
At the heart of the 450NK is a 449 cc parallel-twin engine producing almost 50 horsepower (37 kW) at 9500 rpm and a claimed maximum torque of 39 Nm arriving at 7600 rpm. A slipper clutch is standard.
The double-balanced shaft design curbs vibrations, and 270° crankshaft angle delivers output characteristics akin to a V-twin. A 14 L fuel tank capacity promises a range of over 300 km.
The peg and bar positioning look to offer a relatively upright riding posture. 37 mm inverted front forks and single shock look after the bumps and CFMOTO tell is that the package is designed and tuned to a sporting bent.
A 795 mm standard seat height and narrow seat will help shorter folk and the inexperienced.
The 450NK is equipped with a single front 320 mm single floating disc paired with a J.Juan radial caliper, a 220 mm single rear disc. ABS is standard as is traction control.
The machine is claimed to tip the scales at just 165 kg fully fuelled.
The 450NK also features a five-inch curved TFT display supports navigation projection, and the innovative T-box enables vehicle-phone connectivity, bringing features like over-the-air (OTA) upgrades, security, and anti-theft functions, track recording, and real-time viewing of vehicle information through the CFMOTO RIDE app.
The CFMOTO 450NK is available now for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $7,790 Ride Away (with six months rego) and is backed by CFMOTO’s three-year warranty program.
