2012 Motorcycle Superbike Review: KTM 1190 RC8 R

The KTM 1190 RC8R is a totally street legal bike that has the monster 1190cc four-stroke engine that makes it run superbly. The ignition system is a contactless, controlled, fully electronic ignition system with digital ignition timing adjustment.

Built off a 2-cylinder 4-stroke V 75° with 1195 cc, it has six gears with dog clutch and liquid cooling. The frame is chromium-molybdenum trellis with a powder coat, the subframe aluminum, the rear suspension is a WP-monoshock and the brake system all around is Brembo at the top end.

A strictly limited number of bikes for those who want to use their 1190 RC8 R exclusively on the racetrack. Factory-homologated for Superstock and built to be ´ready to race´ by the KTM Racing Division, with all the goodies from the KTM PowerParts range that make the potential for race success even greater.
