CFMoto will expand its reach in the Indian market with a new dealership in Thane, Maharashtra on 20 November 2019. The upcoming outlet, CFMoto Thane – Hridisha Dream Bikes – will be the first dealership near Mumbai. The new outlet will be located at Flower Valley, Flower Valley Complex Z5-Wing, Eastern Express Highway, Runwal Nagar, Thane West. Thane, Maharashtra – 400601.
The Chinese two-wheeler manufacturer will offer its complete range of products – the 300NK, 650NK, 650MT and 650GT – from the outlet. Regular followers would know that the brand will operate in just six cities – Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Guwahati and Kolkata – in the initial phase. The company currently imports its motorcycles via the CKD route, and assemble them at AMW Motorcycles’ facility in Hyderabad. Local assembly has enabled the two-wheeler brand to price its products competitively.
CFMoto 300NK is the most affordable product in its portfolio. The entry-level model retails at INR 2.29 lakh*. The 650NK, 650MT and the 650GT, too, retail at competitive prices. The 650NK roadster is priced at INR 3.99 lakh* while the 650MT and the 650GT are available at INR 4.99 lakh* and INR 5.49 lakh* respectively. However, except for the 650 GT, all models carry an introductory price tag.
CFMoto may enter into a joint venture to manufacture motorcycles locally, and we may see even more competitive prices on the products.
Pitched against the KTM 390 Duke, Honda CB300R and the BMW G 310 R, the CFMoto 300NK draws power from a 292.4 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valve engine that delivers a peak power of 33.9 PS at 7,200 rpm and maximum torque of 20.5 Nm at 8,800 rpm. The 650 range uses a 649.3 cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled motor that comes in different tunings. Check out the peak power and torque figures for the 650 range in the table below:
|Model||Max Power||Max Torque|
|650NK||61.54 PS at 9,000 rpm||56 Nm at 7,000 rpm|
|650MT||70.7 PS at 8,750 rpm||62 Nm at 7,000 rpm|
|650GT||61.2 PS at 9,000 rpm||58.5 Nm at 7,000 rpm|
The Chinese brand will expand its product portfolio further with the launch of the 300SR, the full-faired version of the 300NK. The motorcycle has been spotted in production guise in China, although the company is yet to make any announcements about the fully faired bike. The motorcycle will reach the Indian market in India by mid-2020.
