Chinese bikemaker CFMoto is all set to launch four bikes in India tomorrow. This includes the 300NK, 650NK, 650MT and 650GT, all of which will be brought into the country via the CKD route and assembled at the company’s facility in Bengaluru. Thanks to local assembly, the company should be able to price the bikes competitively at around Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 6 lakh (ex-showroom).
We expect the smaller 300NK to command a price of Rs 2.5 lakh while the mid-displacement 650NK is likely to set you back by around Rs 5 lakh. The tourers, which includes the 650MT and 650GT, maybe be priced at Rs 6 lakh and Rs 5 lakh, respectively. All prices are ex-showroom.
To refresh your memory, the 300NK and 650NK are naked streetfighters while the 650GT is a sports tourer. Fulfilling you adventurer touring needs will be the 650MT. CFMoto has teamed up with AMW Motorcycles, which is currently working on setting up the brand's distribution network in India.
The company’s initial plans include selling the bikes in Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The operations will then move onto cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai later this year. As for the production of the bikes, the bikemakers manufacturing facility has the ability to churn out around 10,000 units annually. This should also aid CFMoto’s future plans of introducing its second lot of bikes in India in 2020.
