You are going to hear a lot about CFMoto for quite some time now because the Chinese bikemaker is making huge waves recently. Be it internationally or in the Indian scheme of things. The company has already entered the BS6 era riding on its 300NK and now, it has silently launched its middleweight trio consisting of 650 NK, 650 MT and the 650 GT. The middleweight trio existed here before the BS6 era commenced and now they have marked their return with a greener and BS6-compliant engine.
While the Chinese bikemaker launched the BS6 300 NK at the same price, the trio has received a price hike.
