Experience the ultimate evolution of the CFMOTO 800MT line-up with the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE.

The bike boasts an array of impressive features including a top-shelf traction control system; upgraded multimedia hardware; adjustable KYB suspension; and high-performance Michelin Anakee adventure tyres, ensuring that no terrain is off-limits. Designed to push boundaries and elevate your adventures, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE is the perfect companion for those seeking long-distance comfort and unparalleled off-road capability.

As the flagship in the CFMOTO MT range, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE exudes a commanding, yet purposeful presence. With a seat height of 825mm, it offers an elevated position that inspires confidence on and off the road.


The heart and soul of the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE is the 799cc parallel-twin engine which delivers optimised torque for impressive performance. Effortless gear changes are facilitated by the Power Assisted Slipper Clutch (PASC) and Bi-directional Quickshifter, enhancing the speed and overall riding experience. Renowned from other 800MT models, this engine generates 67kW at 9250rpm and 75Nm of torque at 8000rpm.

The bike doesn’t disappoint on the handling front either, thanks to a high-strength, lightweight chromium-molybdenum alloy steel frame, and a subframe that weighs only 16kg. Combined with an aluminum swingarm for optimised rigidity and stability, fully-adjustable 43mm KYB upside-down front forks, and KYB rear shock, the motorcycle provides a compliant and controlled ride on all road conditions.

Equipped with Michelin Anakee tyres, specifically the Michelin Functional Vacuum tyres with sizes 110/80 R19 in front and 150/70 R17 rear, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE ensures exceptional grip and traction, inspiring confidence in any terrain.


Weighing in at 225kg, the bike strikes a balance between robustness and maneuverability. When it comes to slowing down, the ABS-assisted J.Juan 4-piston radial-mount calipers are paired with dual 320mm floating discs up front, while a twin-piston J.Juan caliper is paired with a single 260mm disc on the rear, providing extreme stopping power and ensuring confident braking performance.

Beneath its powerful exterior, the CFMOTO 800MT EXPLORE boasts a range of class-leading technological advancements, including a C-ABS (Combined Anti-lock Braking System) that enhances braking performance and safety on various road surfaces. Additionally, it features advanced traction control and electronic stability control systems that provide riders with optimal control and stability, even in challenging riding conditions.

Notably, the EXPLORE also boasts innovative rearward-facing radar technology known as the Behind Radar System (BRS). This cutting-edge feature, combined with Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Lane Change Assist (LCA), and Rear Collision Warning (RCW), ensures enhanced situational awareness and rider confidence, particularly during long-distance journeys.

CFMOTO 800MT-EXPLOREUpfront, a new waterproof 8-inch Multi-Media Interface (MMI) display greets the rider, featuring Apple CarPlay, which provides smartphone and Bluetooth connectivity, voice control, navigation, and music library functionality. There are six Ride Modes, each offering a unique combination of torque output and traction control intervention to suit varying road conditions, abilities, and preferred riding styles.

SPORT mode provides the sharpest throttle response and maximum torque output with a low level of traction control intervention for street riding, while OFF-ROAD mode provides a softer throttle response and maximum rear wheel slip with the lowest level of traction control for maximum offroad control. Further to this, the 800MT EXPLORE also features an ALL TERRAIN mode, which provides a softer throttle response than OFF-ROAD with no TC intervention, and no ABS, with a RAIN mode providing the softest throttle response and the gentlest power curve and the highest level of traction control for wet and slippery conditions.

Riders also have the ability to toggle the heated seat and heated grips, each offering three levels of warmth and being easily adjustable on the fly, along with accessing cruise control. A convenient USB port cluster and a 12V socket are included for charging devices, including smartphones.
