2022 CFMOTO Motorcycle Lineup | First Ride Review

The 650 ADVentura is one of seven models in the 2022 lineup of CFMOTO motorcycles. Photos by Gary Walton, Leviathan, and the author.

With more than a decade of motorcycle testing experience under my belt, it?s rare to get a first ride on a motorcycle built by a company I have no prior experience with. When CFMOTO invited Rider to Minneapolis to ride its 2022 lineup of motorcycles ? a total of seven models (plus an eighth model that’s under embargo) ? I was all-in. 

CFMOTO?s motorcycles range from small to middleweight in size, and they?re attractively priced. The lineup includes the 126cc Papio minibike ($2,999), 300NK naked bike ($3,999), 300SS fully faired sportbike ($4,299), 650NK naked bike ($6,499), 650 ADVentura street-adventure bike ($6,799), 700CL-X street scrambler ($6,499), and 700CL-X Sport modern café racer ($6,999). The Papio comes with a one-year warranty while the others are covered for two years.

Several 2022 CFMOTO motorcycles ready for testing (left to right): 700CL-X Sport, 700CL-X, 300SS, and 650 ADVentura (with optional top box).

For my first ride on each model, I worked my way through the lineup from smallest to largest, from the Papio to the 800 ADVentura. After logging several laps on each bike, I rode them again and again in random order throughout the day. 

Our test riding was done at the Minnesota Highway Safety & Research Center (MHSRC), a training facility that includes a 1.2-mile paved road course with a half-dozen nicely radiused corners, a one-third-mile front straight that leads into a slightly banked left-hand sweeper, and an ultra-tight, winding half-mile infield course. Like real-world roads, the pavement was rough and littered with tar snakes that got greasy in the midday sun, and it was damp in the morning after overnight rains and again after an afternoon cloudburst. The track allowed us to test multiple bikes in succession and pursue top speeds without running afoul of local law enforcement. 
The Minnesota Highway Safety & Research Center is located in St Cloud, MN.

After a full day of at least 100 laps on eight different models, we had an opportunity to spend the next day testing the model of our choice on public roads. I picked the 650 ADVentura and logged another 350 miles on it. 

CF Who" 

Unless you?re familiar with ATVs and side-by-sides, CFMOTO might be new to you too. Established in Hangzhou, China, in 1989, the company grew quickly to become a supplier of engines, parts, and components for some of the biggest brands in powersports. By 2000 CFMOTO had begun manufacturing motorcycles, scooters, and off-road vehicles. 

Ready to ride! Front row (left to right): 300NK, Papios, 650NK, and 700CL-X Sport. Back row (left to right): 650 ADVentura, 300NK, 700CL-X, 300SS, 700CL-X, and 650 ADVentura.

According to Alan Cathcart, in a company profile published in 2015 on Ri...
