CF Moto has tied up with AMW Motorcycles in India where it's range of offerings will be locally assembled here. The details of which will be announced at the press event today. From what we understand, AMW Motorcycles (no connection with AMW Trucks) will operate similar to MotoRoyale and bring international brands in the country. However, it will not limit itself to premium-only offerings like MototRoyale but will cater to a larger set of audience.
