CFMoto's 1250 TR-G tourer looks set for arrival in Europe

CFMoto are looking to launch their 1250 tourer in Europe.

CF Moto’s 1250 TR-G was first launched as a police bike in China, before it was made available to the public last year. 

Now, KTM’s Chinese brand is aiming to launch the big tourer in Europe, Motorrad reports.

The 1250 TR-G is powered by KTM’s 1279cc V-twin, which CFMoto quotes as producing 105kW. That can be translated to 140 horsepower so, combined with 120Nm of torque, the 1250 TR-G should be able to cover your touring propulsion requirements.

Away from the motor, the 1250 TR-G comes with a wet, multi-plate slipper clutch which is hydraulically operated; a six-speed gearbox; electronic throttle; and four riding modes, which on CFMoto’s official website are listed as: Athletic, Sport, Street, and Rain. Of course, this is translated from Chinese via Google Translate, so “Athletic” will probably become “Track,” or “Race” by the time it gets to Europe. A strange name either way for a touring bike, but perhaps it will be none of those.

As you might expect from something coming out of an Austrian-owned factory, the 1250 TR-G will feature a trellis frame, supported by Marzocchi suspension (although it might be reasonable to expect WP in the European market) at the front and back (130mm and 128mm travel, respectively); while the rear wheel is attached by an aluminium swingarm. 

The bike weighs 304kg dry, although with a 23-litre fuel tank and up to three saddlebags/boxes there is plenty of scope to increase that. After all of that 304+kg has been pulled along at a speed absolutely no faster than that prescribed by the relevant authorities, it will be hauled up by two 320mm floating front discs, and a single, fixed 270mm disc - all from Brembo. Electronic aid is provided in this area, too, with both straight- and cornering-ABS coming from Bosch.

The handlebars are aluminium, with heated grips as standard; a split seat cushion; and side boxes as standard. A tail box would appear to be an optional extra.

In China, the asking price for the bike is 99,980 Chinese Yuan, which translates to around £12,000. When export/import costs are accounted for, it might be more reasonable to expect something around £13,500 (Motorrad expect 16,000€).
