Zontes GK350: Price in India

At a starting price of 3.37 lakh (ex-showroom), the Zontes GK350 competes directly against the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650. Another cafe racer available in the Indian market is Husqvarna Vitpilen GT 650 which is quite affordable compared to the other two motorbikes.

Zontes GK350: Powertrain

Zontes GK350 is powered by the same 349cc, liquid-cooled, single engine which is doing duty on the other Zontes motorcycles. It produces 38 bhp of max power at 9,500 rpm and 32.8 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. The engine does come with fuel injection, electric ignition and a DOHC setup.

Zontes GK350: Design

In terms of styling, the GK350 looks like a modern take on cafe racers. It has got a circular headlamp, bar-end mirrors, cafe-racer fuel tank, a slim tail lamp under the flat seat and spoked rims. On the side, there is a twin-barrel exhaust. All the lighting elements on the GK350 are LED units.

The fuel tank measures 17 litres which is quite big for a cafe racer. The seat height is 795 mm which is quite accessible for most people. Braking duties are done by a 320 mm disc in the front which gets a cover and at the rear, there is a 265 mm disc. There is a dual-channel Anti-lock braking system on offer as well. Suspension duties on the GK 350 are done by 43 mm up-side down forks in the front and a mono-shock at the rear.
