First appearing late last year as the NK-C22 concept bike, the production model CFMOTO 800NK is finally on its way.
Sporting aggressive naked-bike styling and an impressive list of standard equipment, the CFMOTO 800NK looks poised to tempt people away from the established competition.
The middleweight naked bike market is booming at the moment – with the new Honda Hornet and Suzuki GSX-8S joining Yamaha’s MT-07, KTM’s 790 Duke and Triumph’s Trident (to name just a few). But there’s another one that should be on your radar.

Based on the KTM 790 Duke (a bike which CFMOTO’s actually building for KTM already), the new CFMOTO 800NK is powered by a 95hp, 799cc parallel-twin DOHC engine which delivers a healthy 58lb-ft of torque at 8,000rpm. That’s plenty to be going on with – and it’s much the same as the competition.
There’s plenty of other good stuff, too, including 43mm fully adjustable KYB upside-down forks; a rear shock absorber paired with a lightweight chromoly-steel-tube frame; aluminum-alloy wheels; and MAXXIS rubber. Plus, there’s ABS-assisted J.Juan radial-mounted four-piston front brake calipers with 320mm discs for stopping. There’s even a slipper clutch, cruise control, and three riding modes to flick between (Sport, Street and Rain).
There’s also a slightly higher-spec ADVANCED model, which offers a larger 8-inch TFT display with Apple CarPlay functionality, a quickshifter and a steering damper. Not bad at all.
Available in the UK this month starting from £6999, it’s surely welll worth a gander if you’re in the market for a new sporty roadster that’s a little bit different.
