CFMoto bursts into the Dakar with force with the CForce 1000

A challenge like the Dakar is difficult to achieve if you do not have the right tools, and achieving it on the first attempt is an arduous task. That gives even more value to the feat that CFMoto has achieved with the CForce 1000, and the Lithuanian Antana Kanopkinas in the 2024 edition.

The team behind this success is the CFMoto Thunder Racing Team, and reaching the finish line of the Dakar to take the photo is already a great reward for the toughness of the event. But it is even more valuable to have achieved fifth final position despite the difficulties they experienced in the marathon stage.

And in that stage, 48 hours without assistance, when there were only 3.7 kilometers left to finish, it made him lose valuable time. Even so, he managed to finish the rally in 113 hours, 25 minutes and 50 seconds, a result that highlights the knowledge of quads and ATVs that CFMoto has displayed since it was founded 35 years ago.

CFMoto has been developing its products for 35 years

In those 35 years CFMoto has been carving a path that has led it to consolidate itself in different markets such as Spain, where it is present with Jets Marivent, another great reference for two wheels at the national level.

It is for this reason and for the previous work, that led the team and the CFMoto CForce1000 to compete in the W2RC World Cross-Country Rally Championship and in the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, where it also managed to get on the podium.

The mechanics of the CForce 1000 have responded to one of the most demanding tests

Now, after overcoming the challenge of Dakar 2024, where the first stages were especially tough, the next challenge for the firm together with the CFMoto Thunder Racing Team is to prepare their next participations in the W2RC World Cross-Country Rally Championship, although they are already looking askance to Dakar 2025.

Happy drivers
