  • Also in the news, KTM isn't going to make any more superbikes for the street... RC8 is gone.

    Yeah, their CEO just said they're too dangerous for the street. I believe they're also going to make a track only version.

  • I read the articles. They're trying to build a track only V4 bike for Moto GP I guess. Kind of crazy when the big Duke makes MORE power than the RC8R. Bad move on their part unless they were losing money on the bike. Not a good marketing move when the boss says their bikes are too dangerous for the road. I hate that whole save you from yourself thing.

  • Yeah, I'm sure there's some underlying shit going on that we aren't privy to... CEO's don't routinely come out with this sort of shit without some thoughts regarding future marketing... I suspect you're right and sales suck for the RC8 so they're trying to save face a bit...

    Probably. I'm typically a big super naked fan, but I've always wanted an RC8R. Might be worth picking one up before they become a collector item. I like the all white with orange accents. And they're decent on insurance too.
