The partnership between KTM and CFMoto has now created a large-displacement touring motorcycle. The bike is called the 1250TR-G. It was recently revealed at the CIMA show in China.
The 1250TR-G features KTM’s LC-8 1,279cc twin engine at the heart of the touring motorcycle, and it will put out 140 hp and 89 lb-ft of torque.
The bike doesn’t just have good power and torque from a KTM-sourced engine. According to Bennetts, it also managed to leverage its relationship with KTM to get WP Suspension components and Brembo brakes. There are even a JBL built-in stereo system and a 12.3-inch TFT dash.
The new bike looks like it could rival motorcycles like the Honda Goldwing in terms of equipment and technology and features. It will be interesting to see how CFMoto’s new bike stacks up against the competition.
The company hasn’t released pricing yet on the motorcycle and the bike is currently only scheduled for sale in the Chinese market, though I could see this being a winner for CFMoto on a global scale. If you could get a bike that provides KTM levels of technology and performance at a much lower price point, I could see riders around the globe happy to make the purchase.
