KTM Preview: 2013 KTM RC8 R

The Intermot as expected is unveiling to us almost all the top manufacturers line for the year 2013. The folks at KTM have used this international platform to announce the updated version of its V-twin superbike the 2013 RC8 R and the RC8 Track. 

The 2013 KTM RC8 is the ultimate power tool from KTM. Their designers pulled out all the stops in the art of engine building when it came to the 1190 RC8 R 2013. The rider has one of the most powerful V2 engines of our times and one of the best chassis in the world at his or her disposal - totally street-legal.

With the precision to cut out the others when entering the corner. With the power and traction to pull away from them exiting the corner. With the feedback and ergonomics to enjoy the 1190 RC8 R 2013 to the full.

The KTM RC8 R gets updates to its Keihin engine management system for better power delivery, a new and improved slipper clutch and a recalibrated suspension system. The RC8 Track produces 180 HP and is a track machine purely for the enthusiasts. 

It is still surprising that KTM still has not given both these bikes a substantial upgrade in these times of immense competition especially from top contenders like the BMW HP4 and the Panigale.
