Since its introduction, the British-made CCM GP450 has been in a class of its own as a performance-oriented, nimble, adventure-ready machine. With its 276 lbs dry weight the bike has been praised for its off-road prowess.
New GP600 Adventure Bike in the Works
CCM has recently secured the supply of a proven lightweight 600cc engine built by SWM (developed originally by BMW and Husqvarna). The new powerplant is just 22 pounds (10kg) heavier than the 450cc engine and provides a boost of 15 horsepower and 11 lb-ft of torque. Better yet, the 600cc powerplant also boasts a 6-speed transmission.

This looks like my perfect bike. I have been waiting for a lightweight 600 that doesn’t have a banana seat. It looks quite similar to the bmw x country with essentially the same motor I think but much better build. The tank size and positioning is right, great suspension and hopefully upgradeable like the 450. Price will be an issue I’m sure but I think this would be a bike to keep for many years. Roll out early next year but god knows when it will come to NZ, if ever!
