The CFMoto 300NK is priced at Rs. 2.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). It is the most affordable model on sale from CFMoto, a new Chinese motorcycle manufacturer that set up shop in India last year. The CFMoto 300NK gets a streetfighter design and has been designed by KTM’s subsidiary KISKA. The motorcycle is built around a trellis frame. The sharp styling on the motorcycle comes from an angular fuel tank, stylish LED headlamp, five-spoke alloy wheels, split seats and an LED taillight. There is a new TFT LCD screen for the instrument console that offers a bunch of information. The motorcycle measures 1,990 mm in length, 780 mm in width and 1,070 mm in height. The wheelbase stands at 1,360 mm and the seat height is 795 mm, which we believe is quite accessible for Indian riders. The ground clearance is 150 mm. The CFMoto 300NK has a 12.5 litre fuel tank.
The motorcycle gets a 292.4 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with fuel-injection that is tuned to make 33 bhp and 20.5 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with a 6-speed transmission. The 300NK is light tipping the scales at just 151 kg (kerb weight). Suspension duties are handled by USD forks up front and a monoshock at the rear, while braking performance comes from disc brakes at either end with dual-channel ABS as standard. The bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels.
The CFMoto 300NK is manufactured in China and will make its way to the Indian market as a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) kit. The 300NK will lock horns against several bikes including the KTM 250 Duke, Honda CB300R and the Bajaj Dominar 250 along with the Benelli Leoncino 250.
