Imptags : All new CF MOTO SR C 21 CONCEPT The super sports car that KTM doesn't build? The Chinese motorcycle manufacturer and KTM partner CF Moto has shown the concept of a super sports car that leaves many questions but nothing to be desired.

CF Moto should meanwhile be a household name in this country. The partnership with KTM in particular can be cited as a milestone in European-Chinese relations. What's new: CF Moto probably has a super athlete in the quiver who is serious in the pictures and caused a sensation at EICMA 2021. Is this the RC8 super sports car that we've been waiting for from KTM for a long time?

Engine unknown

Of the engine, CF Moto only shows the clutch cover with the mechanical actuation. This configuration is not known to current models from KTM or CF Moto. At the EICMA, two individual manifolds were clearly visible and CF Moto itself spoke of a twin with at least 400 cubic meters. In the context of the new twins from KTM announced for 2022 to replace a single cylinder, there are 490 to 550 cubic meters in the room. The engine is held in a tubular frame made of steel or chromolybdenum. The exhaust gases are discharged via a double-flow system with short dampers from SC Project next to the short rear in Panigale style.


Elaborate chassis

On the chassis, CF Moto flies its flag. A thick USD fork from Öhlins with racing saddles from Brembo dominate the front. At the back, CF Moto thinks of a single-sided swing arm with a filigree 6-spoke rim.

Design study

Clearly: this is a design study. Developed in the CF Moto research center in Europe, the bonds of current super athletes cannot be dismissed out of hand. The rear leans heavily on Ducati, the front calls quite clearly for the current RSV4 and the camouflage areas of the fairing are a stylistic device recently used by Suzuki. Still: Who would have expected such an ambition from CF Moto?


No, the Chinese are neither showing a KTM that nobody believes in nor a CF Moto that nobody would expect. It is a solid design study, put together separately and based on the single-acting technology of the engine and chassis. Supersport is only on the outside. But: A strong announcement from CF Moto and their Facebook account is bound to run hot on the motorcycle.
