After a delay in their official entrance in the Indian market, CF Moto has launched 300NK, 650NK, 650MT and the 650GT.

The entry-level 300NK will take on the likes of KTM 390 Duke and Honda CB300 in the Indian market. The other products in the line-up include 650MT, 650GT, 650NK.

Even though CF Moto has officially announced the prices of the bikes in the Indian market, the online bookings will only start on 5th August. Officially, the deliveries will start on 1st October. It is not known if the bikes can be booked at the dealerships currently. CF Moto will currently operate through 7 dealerships in the Indian market.
