Straight as an Arrow - The CFMOTO 800NK Line-up is Hitting the Street
Introducing the new 800NK line-up
Having first appeared late last year as the NK-C22 concept bike, the production model CFMOTO 800NK has arrived, flanking the small and mid-displacement NK series, with a large displacement product offering to satisfy the needs of riders looking for maximum thrills.
Sporting aggressive naked-bike styling and an impressive list of standard equipment, the CFMOTO 800NK cuts an imposing shape into the highly competitive naked motorcycle market with its striking, arrow-shaped headlight, short tail, and sharp lines.
Designed to be both imposing to look at and comfortable to ride, the CFMOTO 800NK provides riders with an upright riding position, setting the ideal balance between sportiness and aggression, with a 795 mm seat height to create sure-footed confidence for all riding levels.
Note: CFMOTO offers an optional 820 mm seat for riders needing a higher riding position.
Providing the punch comes courtesy of a 70 kW (95 hp), 799 cc parallel-twin DOHC engine, delivering 79 Nm at 8,000 rpm of linear thrust throughout the rev range. However, due to its weighing in at only 186 kg, the CFMOTO 800NK SPORT (and a 189 kg ADVANCED version) is no one-round-only heavyweight brawler.
Chassis, Brakes, and Suspension
Thanks to a 43 mm fully adjustable KYB (Kayaba) upside-down fork and rear shock absorber paired with a lightweight chromoly-steel-tube frame, aluminum-alloy wheels, and MAXXIS high-performance tires, the CFMOTO 800NK provides fleet-footed handling and agility when the gloves come off. ABS-assisted J.Juan radial-mount, four-piston front brake calipers with 320 mm discs are at hand to provide ample stopping power.
Both 800NK versions come with a slipper clutch, cruise control, and three riding modes – Sport, Street, and Rain – all features as standard. Additionally, the ADVANCED version comes with a Quickshifter and a larger dashboard with more connectivity features.
How does the 800NK SPORT differ from the 800NK ADVANCED?
The 800NK ADVANCED offers advanced connectivity due to its 8-inch TFT display with Apple CarPlay functionality. Due to its larger dashboard, the 800NK ADVANCED is equipped with a different handlebar. Additionally, it comes standard with a Quickshifter and a steering damper. The overall weight difference is 3 kg.
The new 800NK lineup comes with a range of high quality accessories to further enhance the ride and sporty aesthetics of the bikes. Accessories that will soon be available include a Rear Seat Cover, Ergo Rider's Seat, Handlebar End Mirrors, Adjustable Brake and Clutch Levers, Drop Bar, Axles, Crash Bung Kit, Adjustable Footpeg System, and Front Spoiler. These accessories will provide riders with the option to personalise their 800NK, both in terms of style and functionality, to suit their preferences and enhance their overall riding experience.
Pricing, Logistics, and Availability
The CFMOTO 800NK (SPORT) will be available at authorized CFMOTO dealers in the UK in July 2023 priced at £6,999 with 3.9% PP/4.9% PCP finance deals currently available for customers. Availability and pricing details for the ADVANCED version will soon be announced through a separate press release.
