KTM RC8R opinions?
Jun 29, 2014 - 10:04 PM - by Dcocci
So I was at my local KTM dealer yesterday, and for the first time ever I saw a RC8R on the showroom floor. First thought- Such a mean looking bike. It sucked me in immediately, and I spent about 15 minutes looking over the bike before I even sat on it. I then swung a leg over and I thought it was extremely comfortable, even for me at a height of 5'6". By comparison, the 2014 R1 next to it was nowhere near as comfortable. Needless to say at this point, I was very impressed by what I saw and felt. The sales guy mentioned that it's actually an easy bike to ride, and most importantly, he'd be willing to bend on the OTD price just to get rid of it, as apparently they don't sell many of them. So, does anyone have any experience with this bike? How is it in the real world? How is it on the track? Do you wish it had some sort of electronic gizmos like a quickshifter or TC? Thanks for the input!
