RC8 tweaked


KTM 1190 RC8R

KTM’s 1190 RC8R is a slightly improved version of last year’s RC8, with a bit more power and a chassis adjustment for improved handling.

The 1195 cc twin produces 162 hp and 123 Nm (91 lb-ft) of torque. Dry weight is 196 kg (432 lb).

Wheelbase, at 1425 mm, has been slightly shortened, and trail is lengthened, for quicker steering and improved stability.

As with other KTM releases, there is no word at the moment on Canadian pricing and availability.
