The BS6 CFMoto 650NK is Rs 30,000 dearer than the BS4 model. However, there are no changes to the design or an update to the features. In fact, while the price has gone up, the BS6 649.3cc, in-line twin makes less power and torque than its BS4 predecessor. The figures are 56hp at 8,250rpm and 54.4Nm at 7,000rpm. In comparison, the BS4 motorcycle made 61hp at 9,000rpm and 56Nm of torque at 7,000rpm.
CFMoto 650 MT
The CFMoto 650 MT is the company's adventure tourer, characterised by its design, long travel suspension and higher ground clearance.
Some of the design highlights include an adjustable USD fork, stacked LED headlights, an adjustable windscreen and knuckle guards on the handlebar. The seat, too, is a single-piece unit while the tail section is minimal.
It looks exactly like the BS4 motorcycle, however, its BS6 inline-twin engine makes identical peak power and torque as the BS6 650NK’s motor. That’s a substantial drop of 15hp and 7.6Nm, in relation to the 650MT’s BS4 engine. What effect this will have on the overall performance of the BS6 CFMoto 650MT is something that we’ll find out, if and when we test the motorcycle.
CFMoto 650 GT
The 650 GT is CFMoto's sports tourer, designed for long-distance touring. It looks similar to the BS4 motorcycle, with its large fairing and split LED headlights.
Some design highlights include the large fairing, adjustable windshield (which can be raised by 60mm) LED headlamps with an L-shaped DRL and a 19-litre fuel tank.
As far as features are concerned, the 650GT is the most well kitted out of the lot. The list includes 5.0-inch TFT digital instrument panel that features two layouts (Touring and Sports), a USB charging port and a 12V power socket to charge smartphones.
It’s BS6 engine specs are identical to the 650NK and 650MT’s specifications, translating to a 6hp and 4.1Nm drop in peak power and torque.
The CFMoto 650 range can be booked online by paying Rs 5,000. The motorcycles will be sold via 5 dealerships in India.
