CF Moto 1250 TR-G is coming in 2021

Asia tourer with 1,279 cm³ V2 from KTM

No, this is not a BMW R 1200 RT, but the CF Moto 1250 TR-G with the 1,279 cm³ V2 from KTM, which was presented in China as a police motorcycle and will be launched in 2021 as a production bike.

The C.F Moto 1250 TR-G looks a bit like a Bavarian tourer, but rolls in with an engine and technology from Austria. In May it was presented as a new police motorcycle for the Chinese authorities, and the production model is now available at the CIMA motorcycle fair in China. It will be launched in the first half of 2021 and is initially only intended for the China. Equipped with the LC8 engine from the KTM, which the Chinese have further developed into a 1,279 cm³ V2. This makes the CF Moto the most powerful production motorcycle on the Chinese market to date.

Cooperation between KTM and CF Moto

KTM and CF Moto are linked by a partnership that we don’t really notice in Europe, as it is primarily about KTM sales on the Asian markets and joint production in China. It is not uncommon for two manufacturers to not only share sales opportunities, but also technical developments. In the CF Moto 1250 TR-G, the V2 develops 140 hp and 121 Nm – enough for the largest touring bike that the Chinese motorcycle market has seen so far. The basic layout of the engine remained unchanged, but some components such as cylinders, housings and cylinder heads were changed.

The first CF Moto 1250 J went to the Chinese government, only then did the series motorcycle come onto the market.

Equipment of the CF Moto 1250 TR-G

In addition to the V2 with a displacement of 1,279 cm³, the CF Moto 1250TR-G rolls out onto the streets with WP suspensions, radially mounted brake calipers from Brembo and a lavishly dimensioned cockpit. Information such as tire pressure and chassis settings are displayed on the 12.3-inch TFT screen. Navigation, four driving modes and the multimedia system are also controlled here. Bluetooth functionality, heated handles, heated seats and an electrically adjustable windshield complete the touring package. The sound system comes from JBL. Unusual for such a large tourer: it is not driven by a cardan shaft, but by a chain. This is where the KTM genes come through. They also ignite with the design, which comes from Kiska – now also a subsidiary of KTM.

The digital display in the cockpit of the CF Moto 1250 J: certainly easy to read, but the characters cannot be deciphered for us.

The manufacturer has not yet announced how much the CF Moto 1250 TR-G will cost.

Conclusion

As with the 650 cm³ series, CF Moto will probably build more motorcycles based on this new V2 platform. It wouldn’t surprise us if a streetfighter or adventure bike from CF Moto were to come out of China very soon.
