Who is living with an RC8r

  • I still haven't made a stable change (still haven't seen an 1199 Duc) but beginning to appeal to me is the RC8 R. Reviews are generally pretty good noting that in it's class it is one of if not he most comfortable. I know there are faster bikes but KTM has always had a great total system approach especially when compared to some of the Japanese bikes. On top of that I always loved the power of my 999 but the riding position was miserable for more than an hour at a time. Something not quite so demanding as a duc but with a big torquey V Twin is very appealing. If you have lived with one for a while what has it been like?
    Is there a seat that is comfortable available?
    If I were to get one an Exhaust, seat, heated grips and a 39 tooth rear is the only mods I can see myself making.

  • Haven't rode one, but know a guy that has one. With the adjustable bars and pegs the thing is much more comfortable than the average sportbike, and lightyears ahead of the Ducati torture racks....

    I see him from time to time and the thing is just dead sexy. Make sure you get the updated ones that have the fix to the wonky throttle....
