When did all Rc8s go to the 1190?

Postby tristo990 » Mon Nov 18, 2013 8:45 am

Gents and Gentettes, I vaguely recall at some point during the life of the single spark Rc8 engines that they dropped the 1150 all together and both bikes got the 1195. Does anyone recall which year the base model Rc8 got the bigger donk? Did this even happen? Am I drinking the kool aid?

Thanks in advance.

Not sure, but I believe when they introduced the R model. Anyone?

All the R versions have the bigger engine. It started with the 09 Rc8r, and then the twin spark models came out with the bigger lump.
