CFMOTO Launches the Ibex 450 and 450CL-C Motorcycles in the U.S.

CFMOTO, a global brand celebrated for making powersports more accessible and enjoyable, proudly announces two new motorcycles designed to captivate a diverse range of U.S. riders: the adventurous Ibex 450 and the soulful 450CL-C.

The Ibex 450: Backcountry Performance for the Real World.
The Ibex 450 emerges as the adventure bike everyone has been asking for, a motorcycle that blends the spirit of adventure with sub 400 lb. rideability. With its 449cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, riders can revel in its smooth and powerful performance, boasting 44 hp and 32.5 lb-ft of torque. The engine’s unique 270º crankshaft promises a ride that’s as thrilling as it is smooth.

This motorcycle isn’t just about power—it’s a call to adventure, blending ease of riding with the exhilaration of all-terrain performance. The frame’s high-strength Chromoly steel and low center of gravity translate to agile handling, while the 21” front and 18” rear spoke rims (tubeless) add durability and ease of repair.

CFMOTO doesn’t hold back on high-quality components. The Ibex 450 is equipped with KYB suspension, J.Juan brakes, and Bosch® ABS for unmatched control and safety. Its 5-inch curved TFT display, and over-the-air update capabilities keep the rider connected and in control.

The 450CL-C: Cruising into the Future.
The 450CL-C is a modern reimagining of the classic cruiser, designed for those who appreciate the romance of the open road but demand contemporary comfort and technology. It’s a motorcycle built for the rider who sees their bike not just as a means of travel, but as a companion on the journey of life.

At the heart of the 450CL-C lies the same engine that powers the Ibex 450, but here it’s tuned for a cruising experience that combines accessible power with a soul-stirring exhaust note. Modern tech melds with classic styling as the low seat height, comfortable ergonomics, and advanced safety features extend an invitation to enjoy the cruising lifestyle. It’s a bike for those who cruise not to escape life, but for life not to escape them.

The 450 Family: Four roads, one engine.
The CFMOTO 450 family brings the parallel twin engine, featuring the 270º crankshaft, to the forefront of versatility. Central to the lineup, this engine breathes life into the 450NK and 450SS and now expands its
prowess with the Ibex 450 and the 450CL-C. Each model in the family is a testament to the engine’s strengths, ensuring top performance on every road, track, and trail.
