The first units of the CFMoto 300SR have started arriving in Vietnam. This implies that the exports of the fully-faired motorcycle from China have commenced and, thus, the Indian launch has got closer.
India will reportedly among the first overseas markets of CFMoto to receive the 300SR. The fully-faired sibling of the CFMoto 300NK was supposed to be launched in our country in Q2 this year. Perhaps, the COVID-19 global crisis might have incurred some delays in the original schedule. But since things are gradually returning to normal and the exports have begun, it seems like the Indian launch could take place in the third quarter now.
The CFMoto 300SR will be an important product for the brand here in India because the 300NK is the company’s only offering in the 300 cc segment, which has become highly popular in the country over the last few years. Consequently, CFMoto will have to put a competitive price on the 300SR to stay in the game. So, it will assemble the motorcycle locally.
