CFMoto is showing off its largest, most luxurious, and powerful motorcycle, the 1250TR-G.  The new bike was unveiled at the recent 2020 Chongqing Motor Expo.

It’s a “luxury-appointed” civilian version of the 1250J police and state guest escort motorcycle.  CFMoto says the new machine is the successor to the company’s twin-cylinder 650TR-G.


The 1250TR-G is the civilian version of CFMoto’s Police bikes.

CFMoto and KTM partnership

The 1250TR-G has a somewhat familiar powerplant.  Its 1279cc liquid-cooled v-twin is the result of CFMoto’s partnership with KTM.  This engine makes the 1250TR-G China’s largest capacity and most powerful motorcycle.  The bike’s engine connects to a six-speed transmission, with a slipper clutch and a chain final drive.

CFMoto claims that the bike makes 140 HP (105kW) at 8,500 RPM and nearly 89 ft-lb (120 nm) of torque at  7,000 RPM.  This gives the 1250TR-G a claimed top speed of 137 mph (220 kph).


Despite the CFMoto branding, the engine is a variant of KTM’s LC-8 powerplant.

The bike’s front suspension uses a semi-active WP fork with electronically adjustable damping.  The rear suspension also uses a semi-active WP monoshock that is electronically adjustable for preload and damping.

An all Brembo setup handles braking duties.  Twin front four-piston, radial-mounted calipers clamp on twin 320mm floating discs.  At the rear, a two-piston caliper grasps a single 240mm disc.  The brakes are complemented by Bosch cornering ABS and traction control.

Luxury features

As a purported luxury bike, the machine has several features that you would expect to find on a machine in this category.  The 1250TR-G features a premium JBL multimedia sound system, an electrically adjustable windscreen; heated grips and seat; a tire-pressure monitoring system, and a generous luggage capacity via hard panniers and a topbox, which includes a pillion seat backrest as standard.


The 1250TR-G features a full color display.

As a large bike, the 1250TR-G carries 6 gallons of fuel.  CFMoto claims a curb weight of 661 pounds (300 kg) with full fuel and fluids.

The bike will be available in the first half of 2021.  Pricing is TBA.
