Chinese motorcycle maker CFMoto will be introducing the 300NK in India in July this year as its most affordable offering. The CFMoto 300NK is a streetfighter and is already on sale in international markets. The new motorcycle has been designed by KTM’s subsidiary KISKA, while a Trellis frame underpins the bike. The CFMoto 300NK is sharp in styling with an angular fuel tank, LED headlamp, five-spoke alloy wheels, split seats and an LED taillight. The bike also features a TFT LCD screen for the instrument console that offers a host of information, much like the unit on the KTM 390 Duke. The bike measures 1990 mm in length, 780 mm in width and 1070 in height. The wheelbase stands at 1360 mm and the seat height is accessible at 795 mm, while the ground clearance is 150 mm. The 300NK gets a 12.5 litre fuel tank.
Internationally, the CFMoto 300NK draws power from a 292.4 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with fuel-injection that is tuned to produce 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). This promises an impressive power-to-weight ratio that should keep the enthusiasts happy. Suspension duties will be 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. The bike rides on 17-inch 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, Bajaj Dominar and the likes. Which will keep things aggressive for the manufacturer in segment that is highly competitive.
