CCM will officially unveil no less than five new models at 9.30 am on Thursday 26th October 2006 on Stand T172 Hall 19 - NEC - International Motorcycle and Scooter Show.
The CR40 will make its public debut in two different disguises, both being prototypes at this stage. The naked and un-faired version is perhaps a true Café Racer in the strictest sense, and will definitely delight the purists amongst the motorcycle community. Alternatively the fully faired race replica with its retro paint scheme is a fitting celebration of CCM's 1981 TT winning machine, which was ridden to victory by Steve Tompkins, and may be developed into a street legal model in the future.
The SR40 Street Scrambler has been influenced by the highly acclaimed CCM motocross bikes of the 1970's and 1980's, as ridden by the famous flying Bob Wright and co. The theme of the SR40 is very much back to basics, with simplicity being the over riding style. Although the retro racer is predominately a road going machine, because of its minimal size and weight, it is equally comfortable away from the tarmac too. The SR40 will be shown in production trim.
The FT35RS Flat Track model is a further extension of the highly acclaimed FT35S that was launched at the NEC twelve months ago. The RS is a street legal celebration of the race machine that captured the British Short Track Championship earlier this year. Ridden by ex speedway star Lee Complin, The FT35 grabbed the domestic title at its first attempt, proving its pedigree both on the track and on the road.
The CXR230S is yet another exciting development for the Bolton based company, with this being the first of what is expected to be many models produced in collaboration with China's biggest motorcycle manufacturer. Designed in conjunction with CCM, this entry level supermoto machine is sure to turn heads, and comes from the same source that also supplies engines to Germany's most famous car and bike maker.
The CXR230E is the off road brother of the CXR230S, the supermoto wheels and running gear being replaced with enduro specification items. The four stroke 230cc engine is ideally suited to the demands of off road riding and will provide the basis of a great economy introduction model that will offer enduro riders quality at a very affordable price.
CCM would like to take this final opportunity to invite you to join them to celebrate the arrival of CCM's new era of motorcycles.
