After a few sets of teasers, CFMoto has commenced the bookings of the GT650, 650MT, and the 650NK for a token amount of Rs 5,000. The launch of all three middle-weight motorcycles is expected in the coming weeks
A few weeks ago, CFMoto gave out teasers for its GT650 sports tourer and the 650NK street naked motorcycles. This time around, the company has silently commenced the bookings for both the middle-weight motorcycles on its official India website. This hints that the launch could be held in the coming weeks of June 2021.
The CFMoto 300NK was launched in India back in March and the entry-level motorcycle will be joined by the bigger GT650, 650NK, and the 650MT in the BS6 iteration. The booking for all the three 650s have commenced at a token amount of Rs 5,000.
The pricing of the BS4 GT650 model was marked at Rs 5.49 lakh (ex-showroom), and the 650NK was priced close to the Rs 4 lakh (ex-showroom) mark. The newer BS6 models are likely to be priced the same as CFMoto announced that the company was looking forward to 50 per cent localisation by 2020. CFMoto would locally source components for braking, suspension, and other electrical features. By sourcing most of the components locally, CFMoto could benefit from tax exemption. And that is why the company will most likely price the BS6 models the same as that of the BS4 models.
The CFMoto 650NK will rival the Kawasaki Z650 while the 650MT will take on the likes of Benelli TRK 502 and the Kawasaki Versys 650. The GT650 is likely to be pitched alongside the Kawasaki Ninja 650.
