The official statement is that CFMOTO is embarking on the development of electric motocross, however, it can also be put forward as KTM’s venture into creating electric dirt bikes. This was hinted at in a teaser video starring Ronnie Renner.
Are they being developed once more, either temporarily or permanently? However you view it, this news is worth examining through a broad lens.
In 2017, CFMOTO, the Chinese company known for producing a range of motorcycles and four-wheeled vehicles, formed a joint venture with KTM. This resulted in the two companies sharing bike platforms, engines, and global production and distribution. Interestingly enough, CFMOTO also has a partnership with Yamaha Motor, which appears to be more focused on expanding Yamaha’s presence in China rather than the other way around.
