    Chinese manufacturer CFMoto has unveiled the 250 CL-X, a new quarter-litre neo-retro roadster.

    Essentially, this new motorcycle is based on the CFMoto 250NK, which is a modern-looking quarter-litre naked bike. The company has left most of the underpinnings in place but swapped out the NK’s aggressive modern bodywork for more rounded neo-retro lines.

    There’s a classic round headlight with a striking X-shaped DRL surrounding it. The fuel tank and tail section are quite cohesive, and the stepped seat looks good, too. At its heart is a 249cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine that produces 28hp and 22Nm, just like in the 250NK.

    Ergonomics are another area where changes have been made, with the CL-X sporting a slightly more upright riding position than the NK. In terms of suspension, you get an upside-down fork and monoshock, while braking is handled by a disc brake at both ends. Features include LED lighting, fully-digital instrumentation and ABS.

    While the chances of this model launching in India seem quite slim, it wouldn’t be a surprise for CFMoto to roll out a larger version of this machine dubbed the 300 CL-X, powered by the 292cc engine from the 300NK. The 300NK is a motorcycle that’s already on sale in India, and if CFMoto were to roll out a neo-retro rendition of it, it could well go on sale in India.
