Ergonomics and Handling
Inspired by CFMOTO’s racing efforts, the 450SR S boasts a racy design with functional aerodynamics.
Upfront, the hollow-design fairing resembles a shark fin, improving heat dissipation and allowing for cooler air to circulate the engine. A single-sided swingarm and under-slung exhaust system further enhance the visual appeal, while keeping weight low.
This, paired with its low 179 kg curb weight, means the CFMOTO 450SR S is easy to handle in traffic, but agile and quick to steer at the track.
Driven forward by a 449.5cc parallel twin-cylinder producing 34.5 kW/9250 rpm and 39.3 Nm/7750 rpm, the CFMOTO 450SR S is well suited to fast blasts around the track or along mountain passes.
Thanks in part to a 270° crankshaft angle, and a double-balance shaft arrangement, engine vibration is kept to a minimum for a more comfortable ride. A 14L fuel tank capacity also increases the maximum cruising range to 300 km.
Chassis, Brakes, and Suspension
Taking its inspiration from the track means the CFMOTO 450SR S handles like a true race machine. Premium components such as 37 mm upside-down front suspension featuring adjustable damping allow a personalized riding experience.
The CFMOTO 450SR S also features upgraded brakes, with a 240 mm, dual-piston brake on the rear. This complements the already potent front Brembo setup and works with the standard ABS to ensure there is no loss of grip or locking up during hard braking maneuvers.
The CFMOTO 450SR S features an advanced traction control system for improved safety. This works by limiting rear-wheel slip in low traction situations, while a slipper clutch provides a lighter clutch feel and easier shifting. This also allows riders to use the gearbox more effectively when gearing down into a corner, without any concern about the rear wheel locking up.
Automatic headlights are also fitted as standard, ensuring you’re never caught in the dark, with ESS emergency braking lights also included for added on-road visibility.
