At the start of December 2020, we saw CF Moto filing the MT800 patents.
However, now we get to understand that there will be two variants of 800 MT.
- One is with alloy wheels for normal roads and
- Second the off-road variant with dual sports tires and wire-spoke wheels.
It is likely to get the KTM LC8c twin-cylinder engine which comes from the 790 Duke and Adventure, which is a boost for CFMoto when it comes to higher displacement Tourers. The engine makes 95 HP, and 88 Nm torque is also available here.
When it comes to LC8c engine, there are several advantages.
- The design is thin and sleek and comes in new packaging.
- Due to the absence of a rear cylinder and airbox mounted above the cylinder, the engine is more flexible. And further, it helps in better ergonomics.
What more in the past the LC8c comes stacked in the superbikes, super naked, super adventures, super enduros and supermotos.
CFMoto will unveil two variants by early 2021. Well, India launch is highly unlikely.
