Damo on the CFMOTO 800MT

Of all the 2022 releases, it’s fair to say the CFMOTO 800MT has garnered the most curiosity.

Most new models are from well-known manufacturers the likes of Husqvarna, Ducati and Aprilia and there’s more of an expectation behind those names than question marks.

And while CFMOTO is a giant name in ATVs and side-by-sides, it’s nowhere near the profile of the aforementioned outside of China when it comes to motorcycle brand recognition.

We had been keen to ride the latest offering of an adventure model for a couple of reasons. The first was to gauge what they could offer at the price being asked of $14,490 and the second to see just if a Chinese manufacturer could break cycle of cynicism with a model that delivers on marketing hype.

Damo put a few days on the 800MT in differing terrains to gauge who it best suits and just how it feels to ride. It’s in amongst some heavy competition in the sub 15-grand category but we have lost the DR650 and the SWM Superdual X, so we’re hoping for another valid entry to the lower priced adventure segment.
