Description:
The KTM 1190 RC8 is a sport bike manufactured by KTM.. It has a V-twin engine and is the Austrian manufacturer's first-ever Superbike design.

Design

The first concept of the bike appeared in 2005, powered by the Super Duke v-twin. The displacement was increased to for the production version. The bike features a steel trellis frame with a cast aluminium seat subframe. The suspension uses high-end upside-down forks and an alloy, double-sided swingarm manufactured by WP, a KTM subsidiary. The bike comes in three colors, the traditional KTM orange and a white and black version.

Racing

At the launch of the RC8 superbike KTM announced it will race in the RC8 in the FIM Superstock championship in 2008. KTM's two year plan is to get the bike regularly on the podium in superstock before moving up to the Superbike World Championship. For 2009 the KTM RC8 Super Cup has been running as a one make support class at selected rounds of the British Superbike Championship, and in 2010 Redline KTM are competing in the newly formed BSB Evo class with rider James Edmeades.
