Chinese bike maker CFMoto is all set to enter into the Indian two-wheeler market with a plethora of models. The first ones to be launched will be the 300NK, 650NK, 650MT and the 650GT. The launch was originally slated to happen last month in May, but the company has now pushed it to next month i.e. July. While CFMoto had earlier stated that they will be launching the 650GT before Diwali, company officials have now confirmed that it will launch the entire 650cc range next month.
Apart from the above-mentioned models, the 400NK will be added to the model lineup by the end of this year. With this, the company is planning to launch five motorcycles before the end of 2019. AMW Motorcycles, which is responsible for bringing the Chinese bike maker to India, is presently expanding its dealer network. As of now, the company has confirmed two dealerships (Hyderabad and Bengaluru) and is looking to expand its dealer network to cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai. The company has only one manufacturing plant in Bengaluru, which has a capacity of churning out 10,000 units annually.
It is not just bikes; AMW Motorcycles is planning to bring the entire CFMoto range of products such as ATVs and side-by-side vehicles to India. These will be sold alongside the motorcycles. The company knows how price-sensitive the Indian two-wheeler market is and for that, they have decided to bring these products via the CKD route as opposed to CBU, to help them keep costs low.
