250cc CFMoto CL-X Breaks Cover; Will Rival Honda, Husqvarna

CFMoto CL-X launch has been planned for the home country for now. However, it does pose an interesting preposition for various markets, including India…

CFMoto has unveiled the little sibling of their popular 700CL-X which helped the manufacturer make its mark in the Western market. The similar neo-retro look has been brought into its 250 cc offering which will be called 250 CL-X. 

The Chinese manufacturer has unveiled the new bike with some images and have planned to first launch it in homeland China later this year and then in the International market. 


Overall, the design of  250CL-X has very similar cues to its big brother 700CL-X. It continues the neo-retro look with a big round headlight with LED DRLs, round rear-view mirrors and muscular tank. 

The naked bike gets a dual-colour paint scheme with eye-catching graphics and painted alloy wheels. The overall look of the bike is further enhanced by an all-dark theme featured in the fram, seat fabric, swing-arm and the wheels. 


The 250CL-X will come loaded with all the modern tech such as a full-digital LCD instrument cluster and all-LED lighting setup.

It will get a single-unit stepped seat, side mounted exhaust, X-shaped rear headlight and rear tyre-hugger fender.

The suspension will get upside-down telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock arrangement at the rear. Braking will be handled by disc brakes on both front and rear wheels and will be assisted by ABS. 

SPIED: Will This Upcoming CFMoto Debut KTM’s 450-500 Twin?

Powering the 250 CL-X will be a 250cc, single-cylinder motor that will produce 27.6 bhp of power and 22 Nm of torque. This engine is expected to utilise a six-speed gearbox and a slip-and-assist clutch. 

From the information given by the manufacturer, the 250CL-X seems to be a worthy competitor in the 250 cc segment with head-turning looks. It will rival the likes of Dukes, Husqvarnas and the new Honda CB300R, if and when CFMoto decide to bring it to our market.
