CFMoto, a Chinese company which manufactures motorcycles, ATVs and engines for domestic and international markets, is planning to add a Kawasaki Versys-style 650 twin motorcycle in its line-up. The motorbike will be named as 650 MT and is based on the existing 650NK streetfighter. Although, there hasn't been any official statement from the company, but the leaked patent images give an impression about the upcoming motorbike.

The new CFMoto 650MT will share the chassis and the 650cc parallel-twin engine with its naked sibling, while getting lots of new features including a new swingarm, inverted forks, and much more. The ride height will also be increased to match the adventure tourer requirements, along with the ground clearance. The liquid-cooled, 8-valve motor of the bike comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and is fed by a Magnetti-Marelli fuel injection system. In the existing 650NK and the 650TK, it delivers 61PS of power and a peak torque of 56Nm, which is expected to remain unchanged in the 650MT as well.

 

Not only this, the company is also going to revamp the existing models for the 2017 line-up. The models will be restyled by Austrian designers Kiska for more attractive looks in comparison to their current versions.

Currently, Indian automobile firm Eider Motors is selling 3 CFMoto bikes -- 150NK (as Eider Dave 150), 650NK and 650TK (as Police 650) -- in India with its other model lineup. The prices of CFMoto bikes available in the country start at Rs 1.35 lakh and goes up to Rs 4 lakh (all, ex-showroom, Hyderabad). So we can expect that along with the updated CFMoto bikes, Eider Motor will bring the new 650MT in the Indian market as well, and it will be priced near Rs 4 lakh.
