The new 2020 CFMoto 250SR has been launched in Malaysia at RM 15,800 which converts to ₹2,77,945. There is also a LE (Limited Edition) which costs RM 17,800 ( ₹3,13,128).
The 250SR is the fully-faired sibling of the quarter-litre naked CFMoto 250NK bike. The latter is already on sale in the Southeast Asian country.
On the outside, it is an exact replica of the CFMoto 300SR which is expected to be launched in the Indian market by end-2020. It features a very emotive front fascia courtesy of the sharp dual LED headlamps. Moreover, its sculpted fairing and high-raised tail-end lends it a very intimidating appeal.
It gets a fully-digital instrument console with auto-brightness feature for ambient lighting conditions. The screen can be used to select riding modes - Sports and Eco. Selecting the modes also differs the layout of the instrument panel. It also includes smartphone connectivity.
