When is a KTM not a KTM - when it's a CFMoto
on: December 05, 2020, 09:54:40 AM
News of the new CFMoto 800MT Adventure bike - apparently the Chinese company make engines, and some complete bikes, for KTM and have license to use these parts in there own machines, so it has a KTM 790 engine in a variation of the KTM Adventure chassis.

It seems to be well specced, but maybe a bit over weight, especially for off road riding.....
