16/05/2018With a fresh focus on the New Zealand market and to follow the brand’s rapid growth in Australia, CFMoto is offering a strong range of quality off-road vehicles, suitable for everything, from shifting a herd of cattle to putting up a fence.
As the fastest-growing motorcycle brand in Australia, CFMoto made particularly strong waves between 2010 and 2013, growing an impressive 473%. And now the brand aims to make strong inroads in New Zealand by offering an innovative and diverse range of vehicles, which are tough, fully-optioned, and designed for the Kiwi market.
At the heart of the company is a focus on quality vehicles, which are backed by superior aftersales service and support.
This support is offered through a nationwide network of New Zealand CFMoto dealers, who understand the product and can provide expert knowledge, advice, and genuine parts and accessories to all CFMoto customers.
Over the past five years, CFMoto New Zealand has been rapidly growing its dealer network and focused on developing new purpose-made vehicles to be competitive in the tough New Zealand motorcycle market.
X400 LE EPS
“CFMoto’s mid-size ATV, the X400, has been a Kiwi favourite right from the moment it was released due to its high quality, innovative design, and unbeatable value,” CFMoto New Zealand Country Manager Anton Giacon says.
The X400 has plenty of go from its 400cc liquid cooled EFI engine transmitted through a Canadian CVTech Transmission with engine braking, selectable 2WD/4WD with front diff
lock – all at a touch of a button – and high and low drive modes to keep you going no matter the terrain.
The model also features independent front and rear suspension for added stability and enhanced comfort. Hydraulic disc brakes with braided brake lines provide plenty of
stopping power. Tough steel carry racks front and rear, tow pack, horn, mirrors, and indicators are also all standard on the X400.
“The X400 is a real game changer, ticking all the boxes for those in the market for an ATV that has all the key features at an affordable price,” Anton says.
The X400 LE EPS up spec’d model comes with additional features, including easy steer electronic power steering, 12-inch alloy wheels, heavy-duty winch, and a set of hand guards to sweeten the deal.
X500 Farm Spec and U800 Farm Spec
The X500 Farm Spec ATV is specifically designed for hard-working Kiwis and built tough to withstand New Zealand’s harsh farming conditions.
Farm features include full 360-degree wrap around protector bar kit, alloy A-Arm protectors, heavy-duty winch, hand guards, alloy wheels, and 25-inch six ply tyres. “It’s the ideal workhorse for the farm, fully equipped and farm ready,” Anton says.
The X500 Farm Spec has a powerful 38hp,500cc water-cooled, EFI engine, Canadian CVTech transmission, including engine braking, electronic power steering, selectable 2WD/4WD with front diff lock, high and low range, independent suspension front and rear, and tow pack.
For those looking for something a little larger that can carry more, tow more, and keep you out of the elements, CFMoto’s U800 Farm Spec may be the answer.
The U800 is a purpose-made UTV fitted with made in New Zealand, all-weather accessories, especially designed for farmers. These include a full-length toughened glass
windscreen with wiper kit, heavy-duty rear PVC windscreen with support bar, and an extremely durable steel mounted mud flap kit. “With a focus on the rapidly growing UTV market, we saw a great opportunity to offer a purpose-made vehicle, specifically designed to suit New Zealand farmers,“ Anton says.
The U800 Farm Spec is powered by CFMoto’s proven 800cc, 62hp V-Twin engine, transferred to a tried-and-tested Canadian CVTech transmission with high/low range and all-important engine braking.
When the terrain starts to get serious, selecting 4WD is as easy as a push of a button, from both 2WD/4WD drive modes to even a front diff lock can be engaged at a flick
of a switch.
Further CFMoto features include electronic power steering, front and rear independent suspension, ROPS certified roll cage, and large rear gas-assisted tip tray and tow pack.
“The U800 Farm Spec is ready straight out of the box, so you don’t have to spend big bucs on expensive optional accessories to make the vehicle farm ready,” Anton says
