2011 KTM RC8 R | Quick Look

2011 KTM Motorcycle

The bike of choice at the now-defunct Skip Barber Superbike School, the KTM RC8 R is an alternative choice for those looking for a high- performance V-twin superbike.

A consistent winner in the IDM Series (German International Superbike), this motorcycle is something of a sleeper in America.

WP suspension adds to the bike’s unique character. With the RC8 R doing duty on both the track and street, KTM markets a track-only version of the bike, the 1190 RC8 R Race Spec-that eschews street equipment and shaves 29 pounds off the road-going version.
