Chinese two-wheeler manufacturer CFMoto is all set to launch four motorcycles in India on 4 July 2019. These include the 300NK, 650NK, 650MT and the 650GT. These bikes will be brought to India via the CKD route and assembled at the company’s manufacturing facility in Bengaluru. This should help the bike maker price the bikes competitively. But more on that later.
The 300NK which is the brand’s entry-level naked streetfighter draws power from a 292.4cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 34PS at 7,200rpm and 20.5Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed transmission. It gets a USD fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear.
The mid-displacement motorcycles, on the other hand, share the same 649.3cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine, albeit in different states of tune to suit their respective genres.
On the 650NK, which is a naked motorcycle, this motor generates 61PS at 9,000rpm 51Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. The same 649.3cc engine makes 63PS and 58.5Nm on the 650GT which is a sports tourer. The most powerful of the trio is the 650MT adventure tourer, which belts out 70.7PS slightly lower down the rev range (8,750rpm) and 62Nm of torque at 7,000rpm. All four bikes get a 6-speed transmission.
Coming back to the pricing, the 300NK is expected to be priced around Rs 2.5 lakh, while the 650NK may carry a price tag of around Rs 5 lakh. The 650MT and the 650GT, on the other hand, could set you back by Rs 6 lakh and Rs 5.5 lakh, respectively (all prices ex-showroom).
CFMoto and Indian partner AMW Motorcycles are currently working on expanding the brand’s dealership network in the country. The initial phase includes starting off with Hyderabad and Bengaluru before expanding to Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai. This should also lay the foundation for the brand to bring in the 400NK, 400GT and 250SR to India next year.
