My first models shipped today!
Actually, many bikes have Chinese parts in them already, the RC390 is built in India, not to mention that KTM owns 49% of CFMoto.That isn't released in the US yet either...... Not to mention it's cheap Chinese parts/manufacturing. Not sure I like that option either.
I checked out a local CFMoto dealer because your post made me curious. I threw a leg over a couple of their 300SS's. I will say that the 300SS felt very cheap. The 450 looks pretty damn cool but the dealer had no idea when they would start coming in. Their guess was next year.Actually, many bikes have Chinese parts in them already, the RC390 is built in India, not to mention that KTM owns 49% of CFMoto.
KTM and CFMOTO have partnered since 2011, and the partnership has been expanding in scope ever since.
CFMoto is a Chinese manufacturer and they break the mold of terribly made products coming from China. They keep up with their competition and are growing in popularity. CFMoto UTVs are built tough and their power and ability keep up with top name brands in North America.
The CFMoto 800MT is based on the same engine platform as the KTM's 799 cc KTM LC8 parallel-twin unit. It is just one of the engines produced by CF Moto for KTM.
