KTM is set to go racing next year with its RC8 R superbike, which is hot off the presses from the EICMA show in Milan. Featuring a V-Twin engine that displaces 1195cc's (that's almost the maximum size allowed for racing against liter-class fours), the liquid cooled engine pumps out 165 horsepower or 180 with the optional race exhaust. cheap tires

It'a a awesome bike, i think KTM enigineers figured out very well, but as the new Aprilia it needs some "finishing" of its mechanicals (recent tests had shown that). I think that the race track will give its own opinion pretty soon. I had a chance to jump on it at the recent Milans EICMA and it impressed me for precision. Unfortunately couldnt test it.....
Very very nice though!!
