- Gets styling similar to 700 CL-X
- Powered by 292cc engine
- Unlikely to be launched in India soon
CFMoto has taken the wraps off the 300 CL-X for international markets. The motorcycle draws inspiration from the brand’s bigger 700 CL-X and sports a modern retro street fighter appeal.
Just like its bigger sibling, the CFMoto 300 CL-X gets a unique-looking LED DRL and an angular fuel tank. Furthermore, it comes with a partly-exposed trellis frame and a rather chunky looking rear section. However, CFMoto has managed to cut the bulk by fitting the indicators on the tyre hugger. Now, powering the 300 CL-X is the same motor as Keeway 300R and 300N that is sold in India. This 292cc single-cylinder engine churns out 20bhp and 24.2Nm of torque.
While the numbers might not sound like a lot, the bike’s kerb weight of a mere 155kg should make it fun to ride. Adding to the low weight is the 795mm seat height that would make it accessible to a wide range of buyers. As for features, the CFMoto 300 CL-X boasts of full-LED lighting, dual-channel ABS and a circular semi-digital instrument cluster.
The 300 CL-X looks like an interesting motorcycle, especially thanks to its design and accessibility. However, it is unlikely to make its way to India anytime soon. If it does, the motorcycle will compete against the Honda CB300R here.
