The ZFORCE 1000 EPS comes with a long list of improvements over its predecessor and is sure to get a big tick of approval from fun seekers around the country.

“CFMOTO customers have been eagerly waiting for the new model release,” says CFMOTO New Zealand director, Michael Poynton. “And you can see why, with a long list of new features the ZFORCE 1000 EPS is the ultimate off road machine that will not break the bank.”

Vast enhancements have been made to the model, with a focus on improving its off-road capabilities. Along with big upgrades to the frame to increase the model's overall strength and rigidity, the ZFORCE also features new independent suspension with dual A-Arms on the front and a new multi-link suspension system on the rear that has dramatically increased wheel travel – now providing off-road enthusiasts more than double the travel compared with the previous ZFORCE 800/1000 platform.

The suspension includes new gas shock absorbers with low- and high-speed compression and rebound dampening adjustment to easily absorb the roughest of terrain.

For greater traction over more challenging terrain, the updated ZFORCE 1000 EPS comes standard with aggressive 29-inch CST Stag tyres with a heavy-duty eight-ply rating. These add to the ZFORCE’s menacing stance and highlight the new black on silver 14 inch alloy wheels.

In the power department, the ZFORCE is equipped with CFMOTO’s 80hp 1000cc V-twin engine, managed by Bosch EFI and now featuring ‘fly by wire’ throttle control. With plenty of power in reserve and a great sounding dual muffler, the ZFORCE is sure to make fun of any track that lies in its path.

An all-new feature giving the driver greater control is the choice of a ‘Sports’ or ‘Economy’ drive mode. The ‘Sports’ modes offers the driver greater performance by switching to a map setting with a more aggressive power delivery.

Smarter features have been included into the ZFORCE’s design, with toolless access to the air filter for ease of maintenance and easy to remove service covers both front and rear to provide quick access to key areas.

For added safety, the ZFORCE comes with a five-point safety harness for both driver and passenger, quarter doors and ROPS-certified roll frame.

Further features include full LED lights package, a large five-inch colour TFT display that displays all the information clearly to the driver with switchable day/night screen modes, a large 36.5-litre fuel tank, powerful 3000lb winch and genuine CFMOTO roof kit all as standard equipment.

"The new ZFORCE 1000 EPS is sure to be a crowd pleaser,” says Poynton. “The model has undergone a massive transformation with the help of Kiska Design. It is now loaded with a long list of new features making it a much more capable off-road machine ready to tackle any terrain.”

The ZFORCE 1000 EPS is available now at $20,490 excluding GST, in a red livery. It has a 12-month warranty.
