CFMOTO 650NK, Naked Goodies with Brutal Looks

In case you liked the 650TR fully-faired touring machine, here's its naked sister, the CFMOTO 650NK.

The 650NK is built on the same platform and offers a nifty alternative for those in search for a nice-looking canyon-carver. The parallel-twin engine comes with ceramic-coated cylinders and is expected to deliver 60 HP @800 rpm, with 56 Nm (more than 41 lb-ft) of torque at a very convenient 7000 rpm.

The bike sports the same Ducati ECU and KYB shocks, with gas-charged rear suspension and 7 preload positions, and we totally dig the low-swung exhaust which leaves the tail section free and light.

Now, this being a Chinese bike, we can't vouch for the performance and reliability, though China has improved quite a lot during the lats years. And yes, we cannot skip the Kawasaki Versys-inspired headlight: it looks nice on the 650NK but still, it has “from the little Versys” written all over it. If the bike is half as good as the leather lady in the promo is nice, we might be interested, though...
