Call me old style maybe but that's the last thing I'd want an hydraulic clutch on an adventure motorcycle. Much easier to replace a cable in the field than xxxxxxg around with busted hoses/leaky MCs and slaves etc etc....

And old style....I like the feedback at the lever from a well adjusted cable clutch. Not much of that with an hydraulic.

I have ridden the G450X with the cable clutch and have the Husky version with a hydro clutch - with the crankshaft mounted small diameter clutch I much prefer the hydro clutch.

Great looking bike but $12K for a 450?? Seems a bit steep. My 2013 F800GS was only about 1K more! Hopefully they can get there price point down.

wow, its great to see new bikes like this coming to Canada. It always seems we get left out of the cool stuff happening in the European market because we're so close to the vacuum of the US market where manufacturers only seem wiling to invest in selling big bikes.

Looking forward to seeing these, and maybe trying one out...

Canada vs USA

As for the other CCM thread it seems that the US will not be getting the bike down there any time soon. So for once (maybe more) we will be getting a bike before they do . Not sure why that is though, maybe emission stuff not 50 state legal? not enough air bags? I think they bike is wonderful and is very innovative and fresh ideas more is not better. I also think the price is a bit high not outrageous maybe 11k range would be better. they are a small company and do not mass produce them like other companies. But they did not cheap out on it either, new frame, adjustable suspension on the fly, engine is not new but new management system faring, fuel tank, luggage and the list goes on. Its no KLR. They only thing I think might be a problem is parts, the motor should not be a problem but what about the other stuff. Small production bike from a small company. Are the dealers going to want to have stock or going to have to order it for you, then how long. Is the company going to have stock or are they going to have to order it etc...There might be cross over parts, bearings brake pads etc..The other big thing that I learned years ago was never to buy they first year model of a car, will this ring true with the bike.
I think in a few years when my knees start to give out and have to change my type of riding this bike would fit perfect. Or if I came into money buy this one as my duel sport and ave a 350 for trail riding. But till then way to go CCM on building what I hope is a great TRUE duel sport bike and making Canada the launching pad for North America

Looks like Brembo brakes, Domino controls on the handlebars, Marzochhi forks, Husqvarna display, turn signals and brake light and with plastics by Acerbis so likely not a whole bunch of CCM Dealer Only items.

I like this..... a 450 is a perfect size...nice components.

My complaint is the tank.....I'm used to the 28L on my 640 and it sure comes in handy sometimes.

If an aftermarket tank, and maybe a centre stand is available, this just might be in the running for a replacement for my KTM in the near future??

Cheers

Saw the bike in the fle, uh, plastic yesterday. I like it. Looks good, feels good. An important point for us shorties, I could touch the ground With my off road boots and the bike off the stand they had it on I would get a good solid plant with one foot, maybe both.

They're talking 400km range with the stock tank which is pretty decent.

Total: $ 8960.00

No rear sub frame on that right? If so that sweet bitch makes for a hard sell with baggage attachment issue right? The CCM looks good. For the price at least it comes with farkles already installed. Not like my F800 with plastic skid plate and stock crap. After you add everything except crash bars on the CCM it's in the ballpark of good price. That frame is genius
Can't wait till Monday

Subframe is there, mostly hidden under the plastic.





The Husky also has a wrap around frame on the bottom to mount a skidplate to as well:
