KTM signed a strategic cooperation agreement with CFMoto 11 years back. The JV allows CFMoto access to the 790/890 LC8c compact twin-cylinder engine platform while KTM stands to benefit from the manufacturing prowess of CFMoto.
There has been a massive increase in cooperation level. CFMoto is developing a trio of 750 cc motorcycles based on the tried and tested 790 LC8c motor – 750 Duke, 750 Adventure and 750 Supermoto T. These models will form a new product range for KTM and help acquire newer riders. All the 750 models will be earmarked for the Chinese domestic and global markets.
📍 750 Duke (Naked or Roadster)
📍 750 Adventure (Adventure Tourer)
📍 750 Supermoto T (Supermotard)
These will be manufactured at the new CFMoto factory in Hangzhou, China. KTM should unveil the final production models at EICMA 2021.
The 750 LC8c platform will be positioned between the 890 and the 490 parallel-twin platform being developed by Bajaj in India, which is also expected to be showcased soon. The 750 models will be priced considerably lower than the 890 Duke and Adventure, to allow more riders to upgrade within the KTM family from their current 200/250/390 motorcycles while also providing exceptional value to the experienced riders.
