The Chinese brand CFMoto enters Indian markets with 4 different motorcycles. They are – 300Nk, 650NK, 650MT, and the 650GT. The company will operate in India in collaboration with a Bengaluru based startup – AMW Motorcycles.
This is the base product offered by the brand. The 300NK runs on a 292.4cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled DOGC engine. This motor produces 34 hp and 20.5 Nm. Transmitting power is a six-speed transmission.
This motorcycle will also get features like all LED lighting, all-digital color TFT instrument console, dual-channel ABS and also riding modes. At Rs 2.29 lakh (ex-showroom), it also undercuts its biggest competitors – the KTM Duke 390 and BMW G310R
The 650NK is also a naked streetfighter similar to the 300NK. But it runs on a 649.3cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled DOHC engine. The engine makes a good 61 hp and 56 Nm and also comes with six-speed transmission. The company claims a top speed of 180kmph.
At Rs 3.99 lakh (ex-showroom), this is one of the cheapest naked 650cc motorcycles currently available in India other than the RE twins of course. But this motorcycle will mainly target the audience of the Kawasaki Z650. It also features LED headlamp, KYB suspension setup, and a dual-channel ABS.
The 650MT is an adventure touring motorcycle. It features the same 649.3cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled DOHC engine as seen in the 650NK. But it has a different state of tune, now producing 70.7 hp and 62 Nm of torque. It also gets a 6-speed transmission. The claimed top speed is 170Kmph.
This gets features like a long-travel suspension and increased ground clearance for better off-roading capabilities. It also gets pannier attachments for easy access during touring. The 650MT costs Rs 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom) and will go up against the likes of the Suzuki V-Strom and also the Kawasaki Versys 650.
Another motorcycle with the same 649.3cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled DOHC engine. However, this is a sports touring motorcycle. The power figures are also higher at 62.5 hp and 58.5 Nm. It also gets a 6-speed transmission and different riding modes.
It also gets features to help in long tours like all LED lighting, USB port and also a 12V charging socket. Pannier attachments are also present. This also gets a 5-inch TFT display with auto-brightness adjustment. At Rs 5.99 lakh (ex-showroom), we can see the 650GT competing with the Kawasaki Ninja 650.
The company has seven dealers presently across Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Assam, and Chennai. There are no showrooms in North India but they are planning to expand soon
The brand is also expected to launch three more motorcycles in the 2020 Auto Expo – the 400NK, 400GT, and the 300SR. The 400NK and the 400GT will look-alike to their bigger brothers, 650NK and 650GT. But they will run on 400.1cc parallel-twin engines. The 300SR will be a fully-faired super-sports style motorcycle and will feature the same engine as the 300NK.
