While CFMoto is preparing to commence India operations next month, BikeWale reports that the company will introduce three more models to our market in 2020.
CFMoto has confirmed the 300NK and the 650NK for India, while a report from earlier this month claimed that the Chinese brand would introduce four motorcycles in our market. The 300NK and the 650NK would be joined by reportedly joined by the 650MT and 650GT.
The models lined for next year include the 400NK, 400GT and the 300SR. The 400NK and the 400GT will draw styling cues from the 650NK and the 650GT, respectively. Regular readers would know that the 400NK has already been spied on Indian roads in the past.
The 300SR, on the other hand, will be identical to the production-spec 250SR, a motorcycle that was revealed in a concept form via a teaser video last month. Thus, 300SR will feature twin-pod headlight, full-fairing design and sporty ergonomics. The production-spec model is likely to debut by the end of the year. The mechanical specifications will most likely be identical to the 300NK, and thus we expect to see a 292.4 cc 4-valve, liquid cooled, DOHC, single-cylinder engine with Balance shaft that churns out 33.5 hp at 7,200 rpm and 20.5 Nm of peak torque at 8,800 rpm.
The 400 cc duo – 400NK and 400GT – share a 400 cc parallel twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engines with EFI tech, but in a different tuning. As listed on CFMoto’s Global Website, the naked roadster draws 40.9 hp (30.5 kW) of power at 7,650 rpm and 34.4 Nm of torque at 9,500 rpm. The GT, on the other hand, draws 42.2 hp (31.5 kW) at 9,250 rpm and 36.5 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. All models will employ a six-speed transmission. The compression ratio on the 400NK and 400GT stand at 11.1:1 and 11.3:1 respectively.
Hardware specs will include conventional telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the back. Anchoring department will comprise twin discs at the front and a single disc at the rear – both featuring petal-type rotors – while the safety net will comprise dual-channel ABS as standard.
The 400NK will compete with the likes of KTM 390 Duke, Bajaj Dominar 400 and the BMW G 310 R, while the 400GT will lock horns with the upcoming KTM 390 Adventure, the rumoured Bajaj Adventure motorcycle and the BMW G 310 GS.
