Following up on the addition of the brand new 450NK bare sportbike to the 2024 lineup, CFMOTO has introduced two different new bikes based mostly on the identical platform: the 2025 CFMOTO 450CL-C cruiser and the Ibex 450 journey bike.

Though the CFMOTO web site says that the 700CL-X has components of a cruiser, once we examined it in 2022, we felt it was extra bare sportbike with scrambler styling. Nonetheless, the brand new 450CL-C firmly crops its flag in cruiser territory.

The 450CL-C includes a liquid-cooled 449cc parallel-Twin with DOHC, a 270-degree crank, and twin counterbalancers all working collectively for a claimed 40 hp at 8,000 rpm and 30 lb-ft of torque at 6,250 rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission, a slip/help clutch, a Gates belt remaining drive, and a dual-chamber exhaust coated in a matte ceramic end.
