    The CFMoto ADVenture model to be released at the 2016 CIMA Chongqing AFAIK.

    The Kiska designed CF650MT (aka CF650AK) is speculated to be based along similar design lines as the Kawasaki Versys KLE650. Time will tell, but see for yourself from both the Kiska design renderings and the spy shots of the CFMoto CF650MT being ridden around the outer northern suburbs of Hangzhou during first week of October 2016, close to the headquarters of CFMoto manufacturing. The 650MT is a production ready version taken for testing, before being shown/released at the 2016 CIMA exhibition.

    The 650MT will utilise the same twin cylinder 647cc engine as found in CFMoto's other models; CF650Nk, CF650TR (aka CF650TK), CF650TR-G.

    Enjoy...

    Spy shots of the production ready CFmoto CF650MT compete in the now all-too-common disguise mode... resplendent in the 'look at me graphics,' photographed in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province during the (2016) October week holiday period.

    Adventure bikes don't roll on 17" mag wheels. This looks like a 10% Adventure 90% Street bike. The luggage and handlebars look completely out of place and I doubt they would survive a parking lot tip over.

    But it's 10% more then the NK, TR and TR-G so IMO better for Chinese roads.

    Just hope it comes with a center stand .

    Side box's do look a bit big????

    Except for inverted forks I don't really see any significant difference from the NK to this. Seems like Benelli might edge them with their adventure bike.

    For 90% of riders its enough adventure just to ride the bike I guess ...
    And for bit graveled roads it should be OK with suitable tires ....

    An off brand extension of the Kawasaki Verysys, Kiska does not go much beyond appearance.
    I cannot imagine CFMOTO going much beyond altering the base 650 twin.
