Let us, however, dishearten all of you that RC8 will not be on sale in India and will only be available for display in company’s showrooms. This will be more of a brand building exercise for the company but however, if the response is exciting then who knows we might witness an official launch of this supersports monster sometime later.
KTM 1190 RC8 R 2013 is powered by a 1195cc 173hp V-Twin motor which makes it one of the most powerful two cylinder engines. It is mated to a 6-speed claw shifted transmission and weighs 184kgs. KTM RC8 comes from a huge racing lineage of the Austrian manufacturer.
