CFMoto-AMW Motorcycles launch 4 models in India

CFMoto 650GT

CFMoto announced their entry into the Indian market with the launch of four motorcycles. The Chinese manufacturer will sell their products in association with AMW Motorcycles in India.

The models launched in Bengaluru on Friday were the 300NK (Rs 2.29 lakh ex-showroom), 650NK (Rs 3.99 lakh ex-showroom), 650MT (Rs 4.99 lakh ex-showroom) and 650GT (Rs 5.49 lakh ex-showroom) at introductory prices. CFMoto and AMW hope to do well in a market that has already has several established players. However, the competitive pricing could very well give the bigger players a run for their money in the superbike category.

For instance, the 300NK could give the Honda CB300R, BMW G 301 R, TVS Apache RR 310 and the KTM 390 Duke some serious competition.

The motorcycles will be imported to India as CKD kits and assembled at the AMW plant near Bengaluru. The plant will have an initial capacity of 10,000 units annually. The bikes, all of which are of international standard specifications, have been designed in Austria and manufactured in China.
