CFMoto Rolls Out A High-Tech KTM-Powered 1,279cc Grand Touring Moto

Sep 23, 2020

Category: Rides

In 2011 KTM announced a strategic partnership with China’s CFMoto, with the latter importing the former’s bikes into its native Chinese market, and producing and supplying parts. More recently it was revealed that KTM would be supplying engines for a host of new CFMoto models, the latest of which to break cover is the 2021 1250TR-G.

Powered by KTM’s 1,279cc LC8 twin, the 1250TR-G is a high-end grand tourer through and through, boasting full bodywork, hard luggage, a huge cushioned and back-rested pillion, a comfortable upright riding position, and some 140hp and 89ft-lbs of torque to work with. Taking clear aim at existing top-shelf tourers like Honda’s Gold Wing, the 1250TR-G is decked out with a slew of premium amenities, with Brembo radial-mount brakes, WP suspension, LED lighting throughout, an integrated Bose speaker and sound system, a massive Bluetooth-connected 12.3” infotainment display, multiple adjustable ride modes, heated grips and seat, and an electronically-adjustable windscreen. Pricing and region availability have yet to be revealed, though the 2021 CFMoto 1250TR-G is slated to roll into showrooms within the first half of 2021.
