- CFMoto 450SR launched in Malaysia
- Comes with a 450cc, parallel-twin engine
- No word about its Indian launch
Chinese motorcycle manufacturer CFMoto has launched the 2023 450SR in Malayasia at an equivalent price of Rs 5.31 lakh. The motorcycle made its debut late last year and will eventually make its way to other markets too. However, we expect other Asian markets to get the bike before it heads to Europe. That said, it is unlikely to be launched in India.
Now, the CFMoto 450SR draws styling from the SR-C21 Concept showcased at the 2021 EICMA. Hence, the motorcycle comes with a futuristic and aggressive approach to its styling language. Look closely and you’d find it looking similar to the Keeway 300SR sold in India. The front end comes with full-LED headlamp and sleep LED DRLs. The 450SR has been adorned in the same black and grey colour scheme with red highlights. But the most interesting bit in the design is the aero winglets on the fairing that are a first in the segment.
Well, the SR-C21 concept’s carbon brakes and SC Project full-system exhaust system has been replaced with regular equipment. Underneath the fairing is a 450cc, parallel-twin engine that churns out 50bhp which puts it in direct contention with the Kawasaki Ninja 400, Yamaha R3 and the KTM RC390 as well. As for its list of features, the CFMoto SR450 is equipped with ABS, full-LED lighting and a TFT display with a bold layout.
