Due to the great demand, KTM will once again offer the RC8 R production racer, “race use only” version in MY 2012. Top IDM riders like Bauer, Nebel and Smrz have proven the merits of the concept with countless race wins. The offer is directed at championship racers on a national level as well as committed amateurs who intend to use their sport bike exclusively on racetracks.
The KTM 1190 RC8R Track has a Superstock homologation and is assembled “ready to race” by the KTM factory racing department, using lots of goodies from the KTM PowerParts range essential for serious racing. 180 hp make for acceptable propulsion, and a mechanical anti-hopping clutch minimizes rear wheel hop under massive trail braking. Leave the shop and lay down the fastest lap of the trackday without any conversions, with the possible exception of a stop-over at the painter’s for your sponsor’s colour scheme.
