KTM is developing a range of 750cc models consisting of a 750 Duke, a 750 Adventure and a 750 Supermoto T, all of which will be manufactured in China.

The new 750 range was revealed in a new investor presentation for KTM’s parent company, Pierer Mobility. The range will be a vital part of a joint venture with Chinese manufacturer CFMoto that was announced in 2018. The previous investor presentation in June had the joint venture manufacturing the KTM 790 Duke and 790 Adventure for the Chinese market, but the new presentation describes a “massive increase in cooperation level” with CFMoto.

Construction is underway for the CFMoto and KTM joint venture’s new plant. Pierer Mobility says the production capacity will be around 50,000 motorcycles a year with room to expand to 100,000.

The result is a new 750cc displacement twin-cylinder range that will be produced in Hangzhou, China, in Duke, Adventure and Supermoto flavors. The joint venture was initially supposed to produce motorcycles just for the Chinese market but the more recent presentation says the 750 models will also be for global markets.

The first product of the joint venture will not be a KTM but instead a CFMoto-branded adventure bike called the MT800. The CFMoto MT800 was originally supposed to launch this October but has now been pushed back to the first quarter of 2021.

The presentation did not provide a timeline for when we can expect the new 750cc range, but we expect to hear further details soon.

    This is one of the few things that would ever encourage me to purchase a Harley or Indian. Owning a motorcycle is a point of pride. Something about Chinese manufacture given the current state of the world doesn't sit well with me. People who buy KTMs can afford the extra 1-2k it costs to build a motorcycle in Austria. This disqualifies KTM and Husqvarna for me. Sorry. I wont buy a Triumph either, and I love their bikes.

    As long as it isn't manufactured in the country where women aren't free to decide over their own body and the government thinks that it's okay to decide on others country's internal affairs
