The color combination of the entire bike enhances the sporty look of the bike. The decals of the bike make it look like a hooligan stunt bike, which many people find attractive.
The CFMoto 150NK has a very intuitive and innovative instrument cluster. The instrument cluster consists of a small LED screen and an RPM counter. The basic functions of the LED display are to show speed, fuel gauge, and odometer. However, the functionality of the LED display does not end there; it also shows time, battery health, bike temperature, mode, and engine temperature. The bike has two modes, eco, and sport.

The CFMoto 150NK has an average saddle height of 775mm. This makes the bike suitable for people between the height of 5’2” and 5’9”; people beyond that weight can also ride the bike, but may have some difficulty doing so. But the ground clearance of the bike is quite less, as it is only 150mm. This means that the bike has a risk of hitting any tall speed bump. The bike has a fuel capacity of 10 liters, which is not very much and is neither very helpful during long rides out of town.

The bike will be very stable during cornering.
Engine and Transmission
The CFMoto 150NKcomes with an EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) engine. This means it has an internal ECU (Electronic Control Unit) that controls the exact amount of fuel the engine needs. This system leads to better fuel efficiency. The bike comes with a 4-stroke, single-cylinder, 149.5cc, and is liquid-cooled. The engine produces around 12.3BHP of power at 8250rpm, and 11.5Nm of torque at 6500rpm.
The power and torque figures are quite mediocre for the cubic capacity of the bike. The bike has two modes, one is the sport mode and the other is the eco mode. In sport mode, the power delivery becomes more aggressive, the gears become smoother and the fuel economy drops, but in eco mode, the power delivery becomes more linear and the fuel economy rises slightly.
