CFMoto Will Launch the BS6-Compliant 650NK in India Very Soon
The Chinese premium two-wheeler brand, CFMoto has announced that it will be soon launching the BS6-compliant 650NK Motorcycle in the Indian market. The company has announced via its social media handles and put the update there. The official details about the upcoming BS6-compliant model are scarce, but as per the sources, the new model will receive mild cosmetic tweaks over its predecessor.
Mechanically, there will be a new 649 cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine which will be compliant with the latest BS 6 emission norms. The power and torque output numbers from the BS6 engine are not available yet as the company is yet to announce the output figures of the new engine, we can expect the power/torque to remain similar to the previous BS 4-spec version – 60.3bhp of maximum power and 56 Nm of peak torque. We do not expect to see a major difference and the transmission option will also remain the same six-speed unit.
BS6-Compliant 650NK – Mild Cosmetic Upgrades
The new model will get mild cosmetic upgrades over its predecessor. The styling cues on the upcoming model will include a redesigned fuel tank and front fender. Other design elements will include a dual-tone headlight mask as well as split-style seats for a more aggressive appeal. There may not be any significant changes to the overall hardware setup and the hardware will remain similar to the BS4 model. It will continue to sport telescopic forks at the front and an asymmetrically mounted rear mono-shock at the back. The braking tasks will be handled by twin rotors at the front and a single disc at the rear. The brakes will function with the safety net of ABS.
CFMoto introduced the 300NK at the same price tag as the BS4 model, and we expect to see the same strategy with the 650NK. It is expected that CFMoto will launch a new 650NK BS6 in May 2021 at Rs 3.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
