CFMoto released the first images of the 800NK, its newest 800cc streetfighter bike, which arrives with a modern and aggressive design and mechanical set based on the KTM 790 Duke, to be a more affordable option than the Suzuki GSX-8S, Yamaha MT-07 and Honda CB750 Hornet.
With an extremely short front and rear, the CFMoto 800NK is very aggressive, with a high fuel tank, low handlebars, robust side fairings and an exhaust system almost positioned below the tail.
At the front, the LED headlight set has a ‘V’ shape, with the lines of the DRL (daytime running light) highlighting the set, and a small deflector divided into two parts, positioned just above.
In addition, its front fender is also completely stylized and, with the format adopted, it also works as a small aerodynamic wing, helping the front to stay glued to the ground.
Another highlight of the model is its giant TFT instrument panel, very similar to an iPad, positioned vertically. This will probably be the top of the line version, as rumors say that there will be another version with a slightly smaller panel, horizontal, but still in TFT.
The CFMoto 800NK engine is practically the same as that present in the KTM 790 Duke, that is, a 790 cm³ two-cylinder with liquid cooling, which in this Chinese model is capable of generating up to 99 hp of maximum power at 9,000 rpm, and 80.9 Nm (8.1 kgfm) of torque at 8,000 rpm. Thus, it is slightly more powerful, but with less torque, than the KTM model.
With that power, CFMoto’s new bike is also more powerful than the Suzuki, Yamaha and Honda models mentioned at the beginning of the article.
Finally, we can see in the images that the bike features dual disc brakes at the front, with J.JUAN radial mount calipers (which is now part of the Brembo group), ABS brake system and Kayaba suspensions, being fully adjustable at the front.
Anyway, there is still no information on when the new CFMoto 800NK hits the market, but apparently the model is ready and should be launched in 2023.
