CF Moto plans to hit the small sports bike segment with the 300SR.
Chinese manufacturer, CF Moto’s 300SR has been revealed in patent images and documents. The company has already launched some motorcycles in India. It is now looking to expand its line-up with the 300SR sports bike. The 300SR is the fully-faired version of the naked 300NK which is already on sale in India.
A total of two motorcycles have gained European-type approval which includes the 249cc 250SR and the 292cc 300SR. The engine and chassis for both these motorcycles are shared with their naked siblings, the 250NK and 300NK. CF Moto has confirmed the launch of 300SR in India but has no plans for the 250SR anytime soon.
The larger 300SR’s 292cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine churns out 29.4 PS at 8750 RPM. The smaller 249cc 250SR makes a lesser 27.5 PS at 10,000 RPM. The top speed is rated at 138 km/hr for the 300SR and 128 km/hr for the 250SR. These figures are little disappointing given motorcycles with lower displacement have higher top speeds.
The CF Moto 300SR features a trellis frame with a USD fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear. There are disc brakes on both ends with dual-channel ABS. Other features include an underbelly exhaust, a five-inch TFT digital instrument cluster, clip-on handlebars, and full LED headlights.
CF Moto could globally unveil the 250SR and 300SR in around April this year. India launch is expected in the first half if 2021 and prices are expected to start from Rs. 2.5 lakhs-2.8 lakhs. At this price, it is likely to go up against the likes of the KTM RC 390, Kawasaki Ninja 300, and the TVS Apache RR 310.
