2010 KTM 1190 RC8R
The engineers have used a 2 mm larger bore to increase the displacement to 1195 cc, which, together with the other modifications, has increased the output of the powerful V2 engine to 170 HP. Anyone who wants a ‘Ready to Race’ 1190 RC8 chooses the extremely powerful, ultralight and extraordinarily refined ‘R’ version. Comprehensive detailed work on the engine has also enabled a more direct response and further optimised rideability. Along with its other benefits, the overhauled chassis impresses through its far greater caster angle, which increases the top speed stability. The numerous high-end components include the front carbon mudguard, the premium-quality, milled triple clamps, the fully adjustable WP chassis components with a frictionreducing coating and the super lightweight, forged Marchesini wheels make the RC8 R not only more playful to handle but also faster. The race winning RC8 R also performs impressively on normal roads.
