Experience the heart and soul of the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE, where the exceptional 799cc parallel-twin engine delivers optimised torque for impressive performance. Effortless gear changes are facilitated by the Power Assisted Slipper Clutch (PASC) and Bi-directional Quickshifter, enhancing the speed and overall riding experience. Renowned from other 800MT models, this engine with its 799cc capacity generates 67 kW at 9250 rpm and 75 Nm of torque at 8000 rpm.
Chassis, Brakes and Suspension
On the handling front, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE doesn't disappoint either, thanks to a high-strength, lightweight chromium-molybdenum alloy steel frame, and a subframe that weighs only 16 kg. Combined with an aluminum swingarm for optimised rigidity and stability, fully-adjustable 43mm KYB upside-down front forks, and KYB rear shock, the motorcycle provides a compliant and controlled ride on all road conditions.
Equipped with Michelin Anakee tyres, specifically the Michelin Functional Vacuum tyres with sizes 110/80 R19 up front and 150/70 R17 at the rear, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE ensures exceptional grip and traction to inspire confidence on any terrain.
Weighing in at 225 kg, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE strikes a balance between robustness and manoeuvrability. When it comes to slowing down, the ABS-assisted J.Juan 4-piston radial-mount calipers are paired with dual 320mm floating discs up front, while a twin-piston J.Juan caliper is paired with a single 260mm disc on the rear, providing extreme stopping power and ensuring confident braking performance.
Beneath its powerful exterior, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE sets itself apart with a range of class-leading technological advancements. This high specification motorcycle is equipped with C-ABS (Combined Anti-lock Braking System) that enhances braking performance and safety on various road surfaces. Additionally, it features advanced traction control and electronic stability control systems that provide riders with optimal control and stability, even in challenging riding conditions.
Notably, the EXPLORE also boasts innovative rearward-facing radar technology known as the Behind Radar System (BRS). This cutting-edge feature, combined with Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Lane Change Assist (LCA), and Rear Collision Warning (RCW), ensures enhanced situational awareness and rider confidence, particularly during long-distance journeys. With these advanced safety features, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE offers riders added peace of mind resulting in a truly elevated adventure experience.
Connectivity and Riding Experience
In the cockpit, a new 8-inch Multi-Media Interface (MMI) display greets the rider, featuring Apple CarPlay, which provides smartphone and Bluetooth connectivity, voice control, navigation, and music library functionality.
Here, riders can access six different Ride Modes, each offering a unique combination of torque output and traction control intervention to suit varying road conditions, abilities, and preferred riding styles.
SPORT mode provides the sharpest throttle response and maximum torque output with a low level of traction control intervention for street riding, while OFF-ROAD mode provides a softer throttle response and maximum rear wheel slip with the lowest level of traction control for maximum offroad control.
Further to this, the 800MT EXPLORE also features an ALL TERRAIN mode, which provides a softer throttle response than OFF-ROAD mode, with no TC intervention and no ABS, while the RAIN mode provides the softest throttle response of all and the gentlest power delivery, combined with the highest level of traction control for wet conditions.
Intuitive switchgear offers riders the ability to easily toggle between heated seat and heated grip settings on the fly, each offering three levels of warmth. Cruise control is also easily accessible, with a convenient USB port cluster and a 12 V socket are conveniently placed for device charging.
