CF Moto has confirmed the launch of its new motorcycles in India, for 4th July. First, the manufacturer will launch four new models along with AMW Motorcycles.
China-based two-wheeler manufacturer, CF Moto is going to launch four new motorcycles in India on 4th July. The company is going to debut in the Indian market, after its failed attempt, earlier in 2017.
CF Moto has partnered with Bangalore-based AMW motorcycles. The first set of showrooms will open up in Hyderabad and Bangalore, followed by in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Pune later.
It will first launch the 300Nk, 650NK, 650MT and 650GT in India. The earlier two are naked streetfighters, 650MT is an adventure motorcycle and the 650GT is a sport-touring motorcycle.
650NK, 650MT and 650GT will use a 649cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine, that delivers 61.68 BHP at 9000 RPM and 56 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The tuning will be different on all the three motorcycles.
300NK will use a 292cc liquid-cooled engine, that produces 33.5 BHP and 20.5 Nm of peak torque. It shares most of its components with 250NK, which is expected to launch sometime later.
The 300NK uses USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the back. In case of 650 NK, it gets telescopic forks at the front and an adjustable rear monoshock. Both the motorcycles get dual-ABS as standard, while the 650NK gets dual front disc brakes.
All these motorcycles have already been spied testing in Hyderabad. The remaining lineup includes 400NK and 250NK. Both these motorcycles are speculated to launch sometime in 2020.
The motorcycles will be bought in the Indian market via the Completely Knocked Down (CKD) route. The bikes will be assembled at the manufacturer’s plant in Bangalore.
For starters, the 300NK will go against the likes of BMW G 310 R, Honda CB300R and KTM Duke 390. However, we expect it to go for competitive pricing, probably lesser than its rivals.
