There's also the well equipped CF Moto 1250 to consider with a KTM 1290 engine detuned some.  Not surprising since they already build the 700 and 800 size engines for KTM anyway.

Yes, Schindawg mentioned that one earlier.  Looks a decent bike.

The  coronavirus is now the officially long lasting thing the Chinese have ever made.

I’m not going to buy a copy of any bike from China or anything else.

 Economic warfare does not equal good product. 

An English bike copied China is still not a English product ,, corners cut to make it cheaper is only good if you don’t care about the exploited people that made it. 

A copy is a copy how many people do you think would buy a bmw copy from China
0!!

A German bike copied in Great Britain is a British bike though   :008:

I'm trying to avoid supporting the Chinese government too, I've got nothing against the people/small businesses/workers, some products they make are actually good after all.
It is almost impossible though, so many things are only made in China.
