    Like ya style… I like the front end, has that transformer look to it…

    It looks nice. Sounds like a little less refined than a Hyosung. About the
    same price too

    It’s hard for me to admit to there being a worse bike than a 2008 Hyosung.
    But when I rode one of those I was damn close to calling it absolute trash.

    It’s heavy, the power delivery is unrefined and violent in a bad way, the
    build quality is poor, the turning circle is rubbish, the front end is
    pretty ugly, it looks quite front heavy, the handle bars feel like they are
    forcing your hands to be in an odd position, the mirrors are absolutely
    disgusting and the gear shifting felt spongy and quite loose.

    I would never buy, or recommend one to anybody. CF-Moto has a long way to
    go in my eyes.

    Also, the LAMS triumph street triple is 660cc ;)

    The gear shifter is fixed in the 2015 model. I had the same issue when I
    reviewed it and its perfect on the new one 🙂 Also has a completely new
    dash that is night and day better than the old crap one. My mate still has
    the old one and it has an issue with the speedometer that took ages to fix
    but otherwise been completely reliable. New one has an issue with the
    ignition barrel but other than that no issue.

    Nice review … I the 2013 650tk and it`s a great bike. The only issue i
    have is it`s a little top heavy.

    Well i was thinking about another review I seen a year or so back about
    this bike, or one close to it, they said the motor was a copy of the ninja
    650, and looking into the specs it has the same bore & stroke, plus it even
    looks like it has the older frame of the naked er6n & Ninja, so it seems it
    was there benchmark bike ?

    I have one of these 2015 NKS models, pulled off the shifter today so I
    could clean the chain so it is adjustable and mine came at just the right
    position when I purchased it.

    Reliability? Well I have 4200KM on the bike now and have had no mechanical
    issues – servicing no problems but spare parts are fairly annoying to
    obtain through dealerships/warranty – I had one issue with a couple of
    LED’s intermittently cutting out on the brake light and the left rear
    indicator filled with moisture but resolved that one – dealership couldn’t
    replicate the brake light so it wasn’t fixed 🙁

    Your comments on the clutch/shifting quality are pretty much resolved after
    roughly 500km of riding, I can easily shift smoothly and quickly.

    Weight-wise I really like it, I’m 5’10-ish and can move it around quite
    easily (not up my driveway!) but my height is a disadvantage when trying to
    read the speed – I sit high enough that I can’t determine the top of
    numbers so 7 may appear as 1 I might be doing 77 instead of 70 speed limit.

    Might replace the mirrors with something different or weighted better to
    get rid of those blurry mirror vibes at higher RPM – also the foot pegs on
    each side attached to the aluminium bits the paint isn’t anodized so it
    will chip against boots and scratch easily and will certainly consider
    taking it back to metal.

    Unfortunately you lose the upgraded dash of the newer NK’s and branded
    brakes but you do save $1000.
