2023 CFMoto 400NK Review

2023 CFMoto 400NK Review – My Attitude My Bike : Hello friends, if you are thinking of buying a “Bike” and you have no detailed idea about car, I welcome you to this blog. Today I will let you know – “2023 CFMoto 400NK Review”.

CFMoto, as a motorcycle brand, has a hell of a lot to prove. Before it can seriously compete with its international rivals, it must convince the world that ‘made in China’ isn’t necessarily an indication of poor quality, and that its bikes can truly stand the test of time, in real-world conditions. That’s no easy task.

I’ve just spent the day riding the CFMoto 400NK, which is the brand’s mid-range LAMS approved variant. CFMoto boasts three other road-going models, the 150NK, 650NK and the 650TK, but the 400NK is the latest to land Down Under.

2023 CFMoto 400NK Review : Powertrain & Range

We were brutal on the throttle with this machine. A brand new 400cc, parallel twin pushing a maximum of 41 horses at 9500 rpm and 32 newton metres of torque at 7750 rpm. How did it feel? In the lower end of the rpm range, the 400NK felt borderline lazy. The throttle pull is light. It pokes fun at modulation attempts by being a little vague. Even though it is a cable operated throttle. Gearing was unnecessarily tall in the lower gears. Probably aimed at fuel economy.

The motorcycle? It feels light and undaunting, relatively low seating, narrow and easy to mount with feet on the ground. What of performance from the 400cc parallel twin? The CFMoto 400NK pulls smooth and gentle. Almost as smooth as a Japanese engine. Watching a certain committee investigate breaches of privilege might be more exciting. It won’t take too long to reach 5000 rpm though and then the 400NK decides you are worthy of its power. It isn’t screaming power like an in-line 4 but the difference is less than subtle and CFMoto wants you to know it clearly.

Clearing 5000 rpm, the engine note changes. No more little puppy noises, it barks crisp and sharp now. The CFMoto 400NK leaps forward, driven by that massive final sprocket on the rear wheel. Yes, it is a massive sprocket. The glorious noise and pull grows gradually and the give continues with more juice above 7500 rpm. Running the engine in this range explodes more liquid dinosaurs, fuel economy will be reduced. But for that, it becomes sporty and stays that way until peak hp is reached at 9500 rpm. There is some heat to be felt at lower speeds and city traffic but that disappears at expressway speeds.

In this range, the 400NK’s stiff, light weight body shines as it is flicked about. What navigates the city streets and tight spaces in heavy traffic with ease now dances with gusto at every touch. The 400NK will make a great corner carving machine if you put it through its paces. The suspension setup is decent, soaking up larger bumps. At factory settings, small bumps are transferred to the rider, bouncing the rider off the thin, low profile seat. We dialed it back 2 clicks on preload and found the response to be much better, cutting back on feeling those bumps. The suspension takes care of larger bumps much easier though and makes it quite a pleasure to be on.

2023 CFMoto 400NK Review : Performance

It has a compact 1425mm wheelbase standing on rim 17s, and a considerable 206 kg curb weight. I initially found the short handlebar and a rather shorter turning clearance, although it allows you to ease in and out. The throttle response is pretty decent, with a little delay but gives it midway through. I find it beneficial for beginner riders. The engine heat is tolerable between the legs, no overheats whatsoever, the radiator does a job well done. I find it quite hefty, but completely manageable as the 400NK shares a complete identical dimensions and capacities of the 650NK.

As far as handling is concerned, you take any bike to winding roads. I have discovered that the 400NK has a really sharp handling, which could have been more fun with a quick-shifter. It also gives you a steady power with less effort trying to control the throttle. I found out that the bike’s curb weight complements the proportion with the proper amount of power you provide it, with the right amount of lean and counter-steering. Front and rear braking is spot on. The 400NK lives beyond its expectation. It is a class of its own.

Simple cruising is rather easy. It saddles you upright. The wind doesn’t blow you out easily because of the given bike weight, which you can deal anytime, and tuck in if necessary. Whenever feeling aggressive, it pumps you to 155 km/h top speed. It could give you more, but it really depends. This bike simply amuses me; the way it can perform is actually exciting. This mid-range model can please you, but can vary depending on your riding needs, provided the bike’s limitations. It can suit your daily ride, and even more leisure if and when you take the long ride home.

Our Opinion

Perhaps the strongest selling point which the CFMOTO 400 NK brings to the table is its unquestionable expressway legality. In the local market, being able to ride a motorcycle on the highways is considered by some as a status symbol. For others, it’s a necessity. Whatever your reason for hopping on a big bike, the CFMOTO 400 NK makes a very strong case for itself. With an actual displacement of 400.4cc, there’s not even a speck of doubt that this bike is expressway legal. Additionally, the added heft that this bike carries, thanks to its steel perimeter frame, provides quite a lot of confidence-inspiring stability on the highway.
