A manufacturer to consider
The manufacturer CFMOTO leaves no one indifferent. Most people already have an opinion on the subject and for the others, it raises a lot of questions. In fact, as a quad columnist, I answer questions about them on a daily basis. CFMOTO is really part of the landscape and has established itself as a manufacturer to consider when enthusiasts are looking for a vehicle to practice their favorite hobby.
We must admit that CFMOTO’s progression over the last few years has been impressive. They have worked hard to set up advertising campaigns on all digital platforms. Their vehicles have undergone major improvements and now have an aesthetic that is second to none.
Although the Covid 19 period put a damper on the test days, CFMOTO still provided the opportunity to test their vehicles. It was a chance for everyone to get a good look at these vehicles without having the pressure of a sales consultant hanging over their shoulder.
For several years now, I have witnessed the progress of this manufacturer, as it has also constantly made its vehicles available to specialized journalists and reviewers. This is proof that he has nothing to hide and that he has confidence in his products. He has always given us an unrestricted free hand in our tests and reviews. It must be said that our credibility is based on our objectivity and I have always made it my duty to deliver the right information with the greatest accuracy.
Our test vehicle: The CFORCE OVERLAND.
The first vehicle this year from this manufacturer is nothing less than their highest end quad. The CFMOTO CFORCE 1000 OVERLAND 2022 is presented with everything a long distance rider could want. Its more than complete equipment frees its owner from the sometimes tedious step of choosing equipment to accessorize his vehicle.
What we could apply to this quad is that it possesses certain attributes to make long rides and explore the thousands of kilometers at our disposal. Its aesthetic aspect stands out with sober greyish colors and blue accents well distributed on the vehicle. One of the points frequently reported is the presence of a blue ring installed on its “beadlock” type wheels. It’s a very eye-catching style that doesn’t go unnoticed.
The CFMOTO CFORCE 1000 OVERLAND is certainly not new for 2022, as it was introduced during 2021. Its very imposing stature could be intimidating for some and its high weight could put it at a disadvantage. However, it is a quad that could probably be an ally for both novices and the more experienced.
The 800XC’s big brother
It reminds me of when I first rode the CFMOTO 800XC a few years ago. I was surprised by the aplomb of this quad as well as the confidence I felt at its handlebars. I had pushed this quad to its limits during a photo shoot to demonstrate its agility in turns and the control it was possible to have with this beast that was not the most powerful on the market.
I simply felt like I was “one” with this machine, so easy was it to ride.
I must admit that my expectations will be very high when I try the 2022 CFMOTO CFORCE 1000 OVERLAND, because I hope to find the same feeling I had a few years ago with the 800XC, which I consider as its little brother. Apart from the mechanics, the Overland shares several common components. While we’re on the subject of the engine, it develops about 80 hp. Is this enough for a quad of this stature? That’s what I’m going to try to find out during my test ride.
Designed and thought for 2?
This quad also has the advantage of being designed to be ridden by two people easily with its standard passenger seat. Will my passenger be satisfied with the comfort of this quad when riding several hundred kilometers daily? I have to tell you that my faithful teammate’s expectations are very high and that she will have a word to say in the final report of my test. Mark my words, because this portion of my upcoming article will probably pique your interest if you frequently find yourself in the back seat.
Without setting the bar high, I also have high expectations for the 2022 CFMOTO CFORCE 1000 OVERLAND. Knowing the high level at which this manufacturer places its vehicles, I expect many hours of pleasure at the wheel. Could it eclipse the CFMOTO 800XC in the highest echelons of satisfaction in my review career, I hope so, but I warn you, it will be difficult to dethrone.
In conclusion, if this is a purchase you are interested in, follow us to find out if the 2022 CFMOTO CFORCE 1000 OVERLAND will be able to conquer us. We will have the opportunity to put it to the test in many different environments to test its real capabilities.
