Neo- Retro 250cc introduced by CF Moto to rival KTM and Husqvarna1 min read
CF Moto has launched the 250 CL-X, an inspiration for the bigger 700 CL-X, as part of its current products. After introducing the motorbike in China, the Chinese carmaker plans to expand into other markets in the near future.
The NK’s sharp contemporary bodywork has been replaced with a more rounded neo-retro look, although the underpinnings have stayed substantially the same.
There is a traditional circular headlamp with an X-shaped DRL in the centre. The fuel tank and tail portion, as well as the stepped seat, are perfectly balanced. Like the 250NK, a single-cylinder, 249cc liquid-cooled engine produces 28hp and 22Nm.
The ergonomics have also been improved, with the CL-X having a somewhat more upright riding posture than the NK. An upside-down fork and mono-shock manage suspension, and front and rear disc brakes handle braking. LED illumination, completely digital instrumentation, and ABS are among the other highlights.
Although CF Moto may not release this model in India, it would not be unusual if they released a variant with a larger engine, such as the 292cc engine from the 300NK, branded the 300 CL-X.
