As a result, the companies are able to share research and development, technology and manufacturing facilities. This collaboration has enabled CFMOTO to produce KTM machines (for example, the excellent 790 Duke) and use KTM engines in soon to be released larger capacity machines.
In this category, outright performance is perhaps not as important as, say, ease of riding in terms of overall comfort and being able to comfortably get the best performance available. On spec sheet form, the average punter may likely bet on the R3 due to its significant advantage in terms of maximum engine output, however, the 300SR makes its best numbers on average 2000rpm earlier. This makes the available torque and power simply more accessible and linear in delivery, which is great for first-time riders and commuters.
