2024 CFMOTO 450MT joins LAMS adventure segment

2024 CFMOTO 450MT

CFMOTO will expand their adventure offerings in 2024, specifically the beginner-centric options, with the addition of the new 450MT, which is built around their successful 449 cc parallel-twin platform.

That means 44 horsepower at 8500 rpm and 44Nm at 6250 rpm, enough for decent enough performance against its peers in this segment. As per so many modern parallel-twin engines a 270° crankshaft is employed to add a little more character to the powerplant.

Dry weight is 175 kg, translating to a wet weight figure of around 190 kg.

Equipped with a 90/90-21 front and 140/70-18 rear, a generous 220mm of ground clearance, and a comfortable 820mm seat height (800 mm with an optional low seat), the 450MT is well-prepared to get a little off the beaten track.
