Someone was racing one this past weekend. It is a sick mother fucking motorcycle. If I were to buy a real expensive bike, fugga ducati, I'd get an RC8 for sure

It's a good showoff piece. It will impress other dudes that ride.

But performance wise, it is old news. A hyped up prototype that fizzled as production specs were announced.

Yeah exactly. It's orange too. I'm so tempted right now. It's calling my name at the local KTM dealership.

how so? The only thing that caused it to fizzle was the price. 4-5k more than an 1198 which has comparable (ok, slightly better) specs, in shitty economic times just wasn't gonna launch the sales numbers...thats the only problem I see with it.

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.

From everything I have read it does great at the track not to mention its ergos are supposed to be great for even street riding since the handle bars, seat height, rear sets are all adjustable from the factory.

It's a full on sportsbike that got creamed by the economy and was too pricey new for most to buy....
It's a good deal - but I gotta think you can get allot of really cool stuff for that $$ right now..

Nothing Killed that bike more than the 1198's price.

Still, one of the most gorgeous bikes ever in race trim.

the only people ive met that are more pissed at KTM streetbikes than me are KTM mechanics that have to work on them.

Elaborate please. I know you had the SuperDuke Chris. Did it cause a lot of problems? I have been trying to troll the KTM forums and haven't heard much about the RC8.
