Video: CCM GP450 Adventure

Bolton's CCM is on its way back with a vision for an all-new, mid-size adventure bike. But can a 450 single really compete with world-beating giants?

Well done CCM

nice to see a manufacturer thinking outside the norm box, seems to be a good all-rounder, Well built?, Baby Adventure, Softroader, Commuter ....i.e, a usable all-year round bike with an added smile, hope they do well....................Not cheap mind.

Someone has needed to make this bike for a while. It's expensive, but it seems they've made the right sort of decisions. Better video too.

40 bhp

is all you need on this type of bike especially with only a 130kg weight , with the right gearing you should have a decent cruising speed of 80 , and with the more off road biased set up it should be nice on the rough stuff I don't know why the japs don't do a bigger version of the wr 250 r like a 450 id buy one tomorrow, you can only get the wr 450 f with ridiculous servicing and its to low geared.

CB500F

preunit - I believe the Honda CB500F is built in Thailand.

I hope this CCM will prove the market, and prompt Suzuki to reincarnate the DRZ400 at a more affordable price.

WANTED

Its about time a bike was manufactured that is suitable for anything, a Swiss Army Knife Bike!

I have had enough of big speed and power and have concluded that it is today no longer possible to use some of the latest bikes.

The ability to go distance, on different types of terrain with economy and reliabilty seems to make a lot more sense to me as I don't have enough money to have a collection of bikes for different purposes.

Let's hope other manufacturers take note and start a new trend and all build a bike to rival this new model, it is a bit expensive but I think they have pulled off a master stroke with this concept.

Love it, although I am sure that alot of people will still say that it needs more power!  Get a 660 Tenere if you need more power or go even bigger still!

I think this class of bike will be a winner.
