MODEL SUMMARY.

Excellent example of a 2009 59 Registered KTM RC8 R in Black and White with Orange trellis frame and rare early Red Bull liveried fairings

2 owners with the last since 2013. 11000 miles. Just had Silkolene Pro 4 10w 50 fully synthetic lube service. Recent battery. Valve clearance service performed at 10449 miles. Original service book and KTM owners’ folder. Original KTM promotional literature/catalogue. Old MOTs. MOTd May 2023. Clear HPI report. All books/keys/keycodes/history/documents present

One of the most individual superbikes of modern times, this is the ultimate RC8, the RC8 R. Genuinely a very special bike, with monstrous performance from it’s 170 bhp / 91 lb/ft 75 deg V-Twin. Out of production for many years, and never very commonplace, these bikes are few and far between, and this one has some nice options fitted which include KTM Powerparts anodised brake/clutch fluid reservoir caps, Sigma Tech anodised clutch slave cylinder, MotoGrafix gel front numberboards, Carbon fibre front hugger, Carbon fibre rear hugger, GB Racing crash mushrooms and GB Racing paddock stand bobbins

The engine was heavily modified from the standard RC8 and featured bigger capacity at 1195cc developing 170bhp / 91 lb/ft with revised camshafts and timing, a higher 13.5:1 compression ratio, DLC coated pistons and valve train components, and titanium inlet valves

The rest of the specification is hugely impressive, with a Chrome-Moly trellis frame with powder coated subframe and adjustable light alloy swingarm, Fully adjustable WP suspension, Fully adjustable WP steering damper, Forged lightweight Marchesini rims, Adjustable footrests and levers, Adjustable brake/clutch levers, handlebars and seat height, Brembo radial 4 pot calipers with 320mm dia. discs, Brembo radial front brake master cylinder, Brembo rear brake caliper, Magura radial clutch master cylinder, Lap timer and Multifunction trip computer.

Adjustability is the watchword, everything is adjustable. The RC8 R’s raison d’etre was to offer in effect a ‘kit’ race motorcycle that could be enhanced easily through the use of KTM’s extensive Powerparts range. Whether for fast road, track, or full on short circuit racing, these bikes could be very easily and cost effectively modified, and that is why the base package offered so much. A really high spec. machine ‘out of the crate’ so to speak.

With unique styling and one of the punchiest, boomiest, potent V-Twins to be had, allied to a wonderful, lithe chassis, these are a truly fabulous bike, and right at the end of the ‘analogue’ era which will surely make them very appealing in years to come

Just wonderful, and this one with such excellent ownership and mileage provenance, and in such an excellent and original condition will surely only become ever more sought after as time goes on. Undoubtedly, one to keep hold of
