CFMoto 300NK: Photo Gallery In India
A detailed first look of the entry level performance naked from CFMoto in India
Chinese bike maker, CFMoto, has rolled out four motorcycles in India of which the 300NK is its most affordable offering as it is launched in India at an intorductory price of Rs 2.29 lakh (ex-showroom India). The entry-level performance naked motorcycle is set to ruffle up some feathers in the sub-400cc segment.
It bears quite a muscular stance with its exposed trellis frame adding to the macho look. It looks particularly bold in this black colour although there is a silver/cyan blue colour scheme on offer as well.
The LED headlight looks particularly impressive with a thick DRL strip running through the middle of the unit. It keeps in tune with the bold styling of the motorcycle.
In fact, all lighting systems of the 300NK are of the LED-type. You might say the indicators might seem similar to those found on the KTM nakeds and you are not wrong. The 300NK was designed by KISKA, the same design firm responsible for the KTM Dukes.
Switchgear quality is decent but it feels a bit old school on such a modern design.
The rider seat is long and narrows down towards the tank. The split-pillion unit is rather small while the tail-scoops are reminiscent of the Yamaha YZF-R15 V3.
Powering the 300NK is a 292.4cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled unit that makes 27.87PS @ 8800rpm and 25Nm @ 7000rpm. Admittedly, these are not the highest figures in the class as the likes of the Honda CB300R and the BMW G 310 R are more powerful.
Much like the KTM 390 Duke, the 300NK also gets a full colour display panel but this one is an LED unit. It gets two visual modes -- Rain and Sport -- the latter being the more funky one.
The components used hint of its performance orientation with a chunky USD fork and preload-adjustable monoshock handling suspension duties while braking units are provided by J Juan. The 17-inch alloy rims look absolutely smashing and come shod with CT radial tyres.
