Kove Moto’s been busy bringing their long-anticipated 800x Rally to the United States!

If you’ve never heard of Kove, you should look into these guys – especially if you’re addicted to the idea of lightweight “super adventure” motorcycles.

Why we’re into Kove Moto

Last year, Americans were treated with the boon of the wickedly competent Kove 450 Rally. The 450, if you don’t already know, has been Kove’s choice in the conquering of the Dakar; add to this the fact that Kove’s boss (Zhang Xue) is a huge rally fan, and you’ve got a magic combination that’s been attracting quite a bit of attention… especially as of late. 

If you want details on the brand’s future plans, Here’s a video of Kove Moto’s boss on his half-decade goal:

As if all of the above isn’t enough to get a closer look at Kove (the brand), we’ve now got an even bigger (read: middleweight) rally bike rolling out of Kove’s factory, heading straight for American shores.

2024 Kove 800x Rally: Specs and Price

We’re told that the 2024 Kove 800x will boast a lightweight 358lbs, with its 799c four-stroke showing off 94hp @ 9,000rpm and torque measured to 79Nm (~58lb-ft) @ 7,500rpm. 

The above gets you a fuel economy of 49 miles to the gallon (4.8L/100Km), with three variants available at the following prices (MSRP, USD): 

  1. Standard – $9,999 USD / $13,500 CAD (MSRP)
  2. Rally/Pro – $13,999 USD / $18,900 CAD (MSRP)

We may not yet know all details of the perks associated with each variant, but we do know that the Pro version will get nifty add-ons like a fully-adjustable KYB suspension system, Bosch EFI (Electronic Fuel Injector), a guickshifter, tubeless Pirelli rubber and a large aluminum skid plate.
