CFMoto commenced the bookings for its 650cc middle-weight motorcycles in the month of May. Now, the 650NK, 650MT, 650GT have made a comeback in BS6 form and the motorcycles are up in price, down in power.
CFMoto India teased its BS6 compliant middle-weight motorcycles for some time now. Now, the company has launched its three 650cc motorcycles, the 650 NK, 650 MT, 650 GT in India.
Following are the prices of the motorcycles:
CFMoto 650NK - Rs 4.29 lakh
CFMoto 650MT - Rs 5.29 lakh
CFMoto 650GT - Rs 5.59 lakh
All prices are ex-showroom.
When compared to their BS4 iteration, all three motorcycles have received a price hike. The price of the CFMoto 650GT is up by Rs 10,000, whereas the 650NK and 650MT see a price hike of Rs 30,000.
All three motorcycles utilise a 649cc parallel-twin engine that has been tuned to push out 55bhp and 54.4Nm of torque. The power figures are substantially low when compared to their BS4 predecessors. The 650NK has lost 5bhp and 4.5Nm, and the 650GT makes 6.4bhp and 4.1Nm less. The 650MT gets the highest drop in power of 13.8bhp and 7.6Nm.
Other than the power deficit, the motorcycles continue with the same mechanicals. The 649cc parallel-twin motor comes mated to a six-speed transmission as before. The dual-disc brake setup in the front has been carried forward too.
The CFMoto 650NK rivals the Kawasaki Z650 and Benelli Leoncino 500, while the 650MT is pitched against the Kawasaki Versys 650 and Benelli TRK 502. The CFMoto 650GT rivals the fully-faired touring friendly Kawasaki Ninja 650, and the Benelli TRK 502X. The more expensive Honda CB500X could be considered a rival to the CFMoto 650GT as well. The bookings for these motorcycles have commenced at a token amount of Rs 5,000.
