CFMoto has been dim at creating the initial impressions in India. The Chinese brand will be launching two new faired sports motorcycle the 250SR and 300SR. The SR in the name stands for the supersport. Nevertheless, these bikes are expected to create some momentum for the brand in India. Let’s see what CFMoto 250SR and 300SR will offer after its launch.
Recently, the manufacturer revealed the production version model across the virtual platform. And we have to say that the manufacturer has done a splendid job by making it very much closer to the concept. In terms of design, there will be not very much difference in the 250SR and 300SR.
The design of the bike is quite aggressive and also it might remind you of the TVS Apache RR310. The fairing on the bike looks quite massive and will surely be a head-turner. Anyway, the bike looks great and even a non-bike guy will appreciate the design.
The CFMoto 250SR and 300SR will be getting the same engine as of the 250NK and 300NK respectively. Basically, CFMoto is following a similar strategy as of KTM Duke and RC. Nevertheless, the CFMoto 250SR will be getting a 249.2 cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces about 27.8 bhp max power and 22 Nm of peak torque. On the other hand, CFMoto 300SR will be getting a 292.4 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine. The engine will be producing about 29 bhp max power and 25.3 Nm of peak torque. Both these bikes will come with a six-speed gearbox and slipper clutch assist.

The bike will be getting pretty upmarket and competitive features. It will be getting a coloured TFT display instrument cluster. The bike has two riding modes – sport and rain. According to the mode, the display changes the interfaces. The instrument cluster also has phone connectivity option. The lights on both the bikes are all LED units.
Talking about the hardware, both CFMoto 250SR and 300SR will be getting 37 mm USD forks at the front and mono-shock suspension at the rear. Braking duty is done with the 292 mm single disc at the front and 220 mm disc at the rear. These brakes will then be assisted by the dual-channel ABS system for improved safety.
The engine is not as par as the KTM bikes, however, CFMoto is expected to keep the pricing pretty competitive. The company does not have a manufacturing unit in India, so it will definitely have some premium price tag due to the import tax. We are expecting the price of CFMoto SR250 to start somewhere around Rs 2.2-2.4 lakhs (ex-showroom), the 300SR will be around Rs 20,000 expensive than 250SR.
