rc8r 2014

Postby gringo » Fri Apr 04, 2014 9:30 am

Anyone got one or ridden one?

had a 2009 RC8 with club kit on, went fine but did have issues with downward shifts normaly 5th to 4th would hit a neutral spot and then some othe rtypical KTM stuff.

wanted to know if the latest one was much differnet although i imagine it would be given the more modern engine and changes on the WP stuff.

Hearing that when the 4 cylinder KTM is available {for track only}, KTM corporate has decided enough is enough and will phase out the road version of the RC8, can this be true?? Their thinking is that there is too much horsepower on the street now and are going to tack away from the high HP engines for the street. Hard to believe but could dove tail with the lack of any major upgrades to the venerable" "8".
