CFMoto Malaysia has started the year by shocking the industry with the introduction of the most affordable grand tourer in the Malaysian market.
The CFMoto 1250TR-G which looks like its the sibling of the previous-generation BMW RT, is priced at just RM88,888.
It’s a shocking price for a bike that looks this good and exudes luxury and good looks in almost any angle.
It is powered by a 1,279cc V-Twin engine that makes 140hp@8500rpm and 120Nm at 7000rpm, which is plenty for highway cruising. Interestingly, this engine was co-developed by KTM and is the largest-capacity and most powerful motorcycle in China.
The engine provides the bike with a top speed of 220km/h.
It also boasts some decent tech such as cruise control and a 12.3-inch TFT multi media interface (MMI) instrument panel. This also comes with bluetooth connectivity so you can playback your favourite music through the standard JBL speakers.
There’s also full LED lighting system, daytime running lights, and an electronically adjustable wind screen. A tyre pressure monitoring system rounds off the tech equipment.
In terms of performance, besides the impressive power output, there’s three riding modes – Sport, Comfort and Rain. And helping to put down power is a quickshifter that is provided as standard equipment.
Suspension duties is managed by Marzocchi shocks and absorbers which are said to be more than good to manage the bike’s 300kg kerb weight.
Stopping power is provided by 320mm dual-discs up front and a 270mm single disc at the rear, gripped by Brembo callipers equipped with ABS capability.
CFMoto Malaysia said that the 1250TR-G has undergone a localisation test spanning 50,000km to ensure that the bike performs at its finest in Malaysian conditions.
The CFMoto 1250TR-G will be available at all authorised dealers next week with buyers having a choice of two colours. It also comes with a two-year unlimited mileage warranty.
