CFMoto has revealed a teaser of a track motorcycle which could be housing a quarter-litre block underneath the fully faired design. The Chinese manufacturer is getting ready to plant its foot on Indian soil soon and is expected to bring the CF Moto 250NK, a naked street fighter motorcycle.

The new motorcycle may be named 250SR and it is expected to be based on the 250NK. But, the CFMoto 250SR will be a full fairing model with LED headlights, a step-up seat, clip-on handlebars, upside down front forks, a single rotor disc on the front & back and alloy wheels. The fairing and tank have a sharp design features but the aero ducts on the nose may be replaced with the headlights which we see in the image above.

The CF Moto 250NK was spotted testing in India recently and the 250SR is expected to have the same underpinnings as its naked sibling. The engine is expected to be a 250cc, single-cylinder with a liquid-cooled motor which is likely to produce 26 HP of power and 22 Nm of torque and the 250SR may be tuned to get a little more juice out of the same setup. The chassis is expected to be a steel trellis frame with and the concept bike shows inverted front forks but the production version may not get USD fork units to keep the price in check. The rear suspension is expected to have an adjustable monoshock and the brakes are expected to be hydraulically operated discs on both ends equipped with dual-channel ABS for safety.

CF Moto is expected to launch the 250SR in India at a price close to INR 1.5 lakh.  The CF Moto 250SR when launched will rival the likes of the KTM RC200, Honda CBR250R.
