India has become the hub for investments because it is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world is not a big surprise. Most of the investment is made in the tech-based companies and the motor departments. Many international brands are looking to establish their brand in India as they came to know how important the world market is. One such motor company that has its eye on the Indian market is the Chinese brand CFmoto. The news about this brand coming into the Indian market came out early this year when there were talks over the internet when the company put out a few of the bike designs that they might bring in to the country.
CFmoto, which was started in the year 1989, has its roots in the Zhejiang province. Throughout existence, the company made sure that they earn a reputable name for themselves in the motor industry, and that is what they have done to perfection. As of now, the company had been established in Australia, Asia, and North America. Considering the time it took for them to get hold of these areas speaks volumes about the company’s potential. Their recent tie-up with the Australian motor company KTM helped them come up with the models that they are planning to launch in India.
Asian motors limited AMW is the company that is said to help with the manufacturing and distribution of these bikes in India for the CFmoto Company. The bikes by themselves are marketed under both the banner which seems to settle things for it. As per the rumors at the start of the year the AMW CFmoto 300NK, 650GT, 650MT and 650NK were the four models that are said to be launched in India. All these rumors came true when the company officially started the AMW CFmoto 300NK and 650NK during July.
The company is said to start their online booking for these bikes from August 5th, and the delivery of the bikes are expected to be done during October. Since the official launch of these bikes, there have been talks and comparisons made that these bikes can potentially be a rival to. Before diving deep into the comparisons here is what the bikes offer;
AMW CFmoto 300NK
Displacement: 292.2 cc
Transmission: 6 speed
Max power: 34 Hp
Max torque: 20.5 Nm
Price: 2.29 lakh (Ex-showroom price)
AMW CFmoto 650NK
Displacement: 649 cc
Transmission: 6 speed
Max power: 61.68 Hp
Max torque: 56 Nm
Price: 3.99 lakh (Ex-showroom price).
What the company provides for the money they ask seems completely reasonable when compared with various vehicles from the same category in different brands. The cost to value ratio is something that might be the “X-factor” that this company needs from them to bloom in India.
The company promotes its bike, saying Australian design, which is from KTM. So that the KTM 390 is one of the direct competitors for the 300NK variance. Other bikes like the Honda CBR 300 and the TNT 300 from Benelli and also the TNT 25 to a certain extent, bikes like the Bajaj Dominar, TVS Apache 310 and BMW G310 are all rivals with one another. Most of these specifications in all these are similar where one excels in one feature the other bikes make sure they triumph over them in something. This makes the bike no less to the other, so the competition in the entry-level naked model sports bike is pretty steep.
This is not the case when it comes to the 650NK version, as there are not many companies that concentrate more on the high-end version. Bikes like the TNT 600i from Benelli and Z650 from Kawasaki are few other manufacturers that might compete in the 650cc class of bikes. The mileage on both the bikes AMW CFmoto is not yet confirmed; the mileage test has to be done only after the delivery of the vehicle.
From a biker’s point of view, they can be happier than ever as the number of companies increases. They get to have a lot of choices over which bike to get based on their requirements. About CFmoto’s bikes, they are a self-made company that has a name for itself so the bikes will be on point and there is no doubt. The other variance, namely the 650MT and the 650GT, are said to release at the end of the year after these bikes have been delivered.
