In recent years, the domestic motorcycle market in China has experienced rapid development. The growth of medium-displacement motorcycles has been particularly remarkable. This year, it seems that the leading motorcycle brands in China have set their sights on 450cc motorcycles and have introduced several models in this category. Let’s take a look at what models are available.


As things stand, the CFMOTO 450SR is already a peach of a sportbike. However, given CFMOTO’s aggressive expansion, it’s gone right ahead and given the bike an update in the form of the 450SR S. Right off the bat, the most notable update to the sportbike comes in the form of a single-sided swingarm –a feature that was present in the SR-C21 concept, but was eventually shelved for the production model. Thanks to the new feature, the bike looks even more aggressive, exposing the aggressive styling of the alloy wheels.

As well as the new swingarm, the SR-S gains a larger 240mm rear disc, up from 220mm, and features traction control as standard. Automatic headlights and a new instrument panel with a phone mirroring setup are also fitted, as well as a new, adjustable rear shock.

In China, it’s priced at 33,580 Yuan, translating to about $4,671 USD.Launched initially in China, the updated 450SR S is expected to make its way to neighboring Asian markets, European and American market soon.

The CFMOTO 450NK, showcased in May at MOTOR CHINA, is a street variant based on the RR model, 450SR. Aesthetically, it follows the design footsteps of the 800NK, incorporating the same headlight design. The V-shaped LED daytime running lights and the lens-equipped headlights exude an aggressive demeanor. The taillight inherits the classic design from the SR series, including the hollowed-out style on both sides of the tail, creating a harmonious aesthetic appeal.

Ever since the announcement of the KOVE 450RR pricing in May at Motor China KOVE, the attention this motorcycle has garnered in the Chinese market has soared exponentially.
