The Austrian manufacturer has officially unveiled the new KTM RC 8C sports bike with 128 hp. on a wheel and weighing 140 dry kg.

Outwardly, the bike may seem completely new, but you may already see many of the features of the KTM RC 8C on the Kramer GP2 890R track bike. On the other hand, the Austrians are silent about any involvement of German colleagues in the project.

The KTM RC 8C sports bike comes with KTM MotoGP prototype wings. The fuel tank, like on the Kramer GP2 890R bike, is located in the tail and holds 16 liters. At the heart of the bike is the 890cc KTM LC8c engine. The power unit is installed in a steel (25CrMo4) lattice frame. The exhaust system is of course Akrapovic.

Other features of KTM RC 8C:

  • WP suspension: 43mm WP APEX PRO 7543 fork + WP APEX PRO 7746 shock (fully adjustable)
  • Brembo brakes: 290mm discs with Brembo Stylema calipers, Brembo 19RCS CORSA CORTA master cylinder
  • Dymag aluminum wheels with Pirelli tires
  • tidy AIM MXS 1.2 RACE with datalogger and GPS tracker + 5-inch LCD tidy

A total of 100 units of the KTM RC 8C will be made at a price of $ 38,999. 25 lucky owners will have the opportunity to work with the KTM team, Dani Pedrosoa and Mika Kallio in private tests in Jerez

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
