The 2023 CFMOTO CFORCE 520 includes lots of new upgrades to improve the performance and comfort compared to the previous model. The turning circle is 25% tighter thanks to a new steering knuckle design. New engine mounts help to reduce vibration. The fuel tank cover is removable and does not require any tools. Upgraded racks have an increased load capacity (30kg front and 60kg rear) and feature CF-connect to easily install OEM accessories. The rear storage compartment is 2.5L bigger. The optimised ergonomic riding position makes the ride more comfortable in both standing and seating positions. There is a new exhaust design for reduced noise and exhaust heat. The new chassis is 10% lighter and 30% stronger than previous model.
The new suspension provides 26% more wheel travel and increased ground clearance, initial travel is softer for increased comfort and becomes stiffer for better performance with more aggressive riding. There is a new handlebar design for easier steering with the tuned EPS system and new anti-slip handlebar grips. The new seat is 40% thicker providing better support and comfort. The new dashboard design is highly intuitive and can be paired with the rider’s phone by Bluetooth. The hitch receiver on the new tow-bar is bolted to the chassis rather than welded, which provides an increased load capacity of 802kg and is easily replaceable. The new front grill provides more effective airflow and delivers better cooling performance in conjunction with a new bigger radiator fan.
