    And so? :) Hoping to see a longer review after the first 1000k, for now, some quick questions.

    What was your final price after freight & taxes? How difficult was it to get plates? And more importantly, how is the initial ride / power? I'm very seriously considering this bike and the Benelli. Hoping to hear some positive comments from you soon, and more pics without the plastic bags and boxes! :)

    Cfmoto uses Ducati Energia EFI and electric controls….
    http://www.ducatienergia.com/eng/prodotto.php?id=40


    Not sure if that is what is used on the 650, but it is what is on the 150cc CF-150 models and also the scooters they offer.


    That’s a private company not a joint venture and it has probably some of the most sophisticated products offered in china.

    They are also in some way involved with Malaguti...
    http://www.malaguti.com/en-US/Home.aspx

    Makes you wonder does VW AG realizes that they do not have an exclusive on the Ducati name?
    Which also raises the question…do Ducati Motorcycle use Ducati Energia controls? They may or may not and VW AG does not own that do they?


    So when you see Ducati as the name on the EFI what preconception do you form?


    Interesting…then consider that Ducati Energia has or does it posses more or less knowledge?

    They split into two and in that still have the right to the name?

    Eagerly waiting for more on this bike! I guess you're first MCM owner of a CFmoto 650, be it NK or TR, so we're all pretty impatient to see how you get on. Thanks for taking the plunge, hope it goes well for you!

    Went by a new (to me) shop on Wuzhong lu today. They were advertising the TR @ 46800. Too much for my taste. Wondering what the version with fairings offers that makes it worth so much more.

    That's also too close to 50,000RMB for me too.

    I think this is just an outsourced manufacturing company, might be owned under the Ducati Umbrella, might not be. Not so unusual is it. 220px-Bosch-brand.svg.png Bosch for example:
    Bosch's core products are automotive components (including brakes, controls, electrical drives, electronics, fuel systems, generators, starter motors and steering systems), industrial products (including drives and controls, packaging technology and solar panels) and consumer goods and building products (including household appliances, power tools, security systems and thermotechnology)
    Or Brembo 9985.png1961-2011: 50 YEARS OF HISTORY AND INNOVATION
    2011 was a major milestone for Brembo, as the company celebrated 50 years of business studded with extraordinary technological, sporting and commercial successes. On January 11 1961, Emilio Bombassei and Italo Breda founded Officine Meccaniche di Sombreno, the original progenitor of today's Brembo. Already with them was the current group president Alberto Bombassei, who was just twenty years old at the time. Marzocchi, Nissin, the list goes on......
    I think it doesn't matter who owns them, they'll supply the industry with the components they want.

    Yes, that's been on my mind since they released the price too. I was hoping bikerdoc would have answers, but now maybe shanghaifingers will enlighten us! What does this bike have, apart from fairings and cases, that warrants an extra 9000 kuai over the naked version?

    Speaking of cases, how do they feel? Would they survive a crash or are they like the flimsy ones that come with the JH600 'adv' ?

    G'Day,

    Attached a pic of a Ducati Multistrada 1200S ECU, MIJ = Made in Japan by Mitsubishi Electric, did some serious mods on the Duc today and swapped out the ECU to a Ducati Corse one.
