    Spy images of the CFMoto’s 250NK on test in India have made an appearance online. The 250NK isn’t a new bike and is already on sale in international markets. However, what is interesting is the fact that the bike seen in the images is camouflaged and this could imply that the brand is testing the bike and looking to re-enter the market.

    CFMoto did make an entry around two years ago with its Indian partner, Eider Motors. But Eider Motors was declared a fraud and the chairman was arrested for allegedly cheating dealers. The appearance of the new bike, however, has brought up the question if CFMoto will re-enter India with a new partner. According to the company, the 250NK is “perfect for the urban commuter or learner rider.”

    Powering the 250NK is a 250cc, single-cylinder, four-valve, DOHC, liquid-cooled motor making 26.5hp at 9,000rpm and 22Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. This fuel-injected engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike’s trellis frame is suspended on a USD fork and a monoshock. As for the brakes, the 250NK uses a 300mm disc at the front and a 245mm disc at the rear.

    The CFMoto 250NK has a decently-sized fuel tank with a capacity of 12.5 litres. The seat height meanwhile is 795mm and the claimed dry weight is 151kg. The motorcycle also has riding modes, which, if launched in India, would be a segment-first feature. It also has all-LED lighting and a fully-digital TFT instrument cluster.

    In Australia, the CFMoto 250NK is priced at 3,990 dollars (Rs 2.01 lakh) and if the company could replicate that price tag in India, it would take on the likes of the KTM 250 Duke (Rs 1.80 lakh) and the upcoming Bajaj Dominar (Rs 1.90 lakh, expected).
