The 2009 KTM 1190 RC8 R is a lighter, more powerful race derived version of the KTM 1190 RC8 superbike, itself a development of the RC8 concept from 2004.

Powering the KTM 1190 RC8 R is a 1195 cc, 75 degree, V-twin engine which develops 164 horsepower @ 10,250 rpm, and 123 Nm of torque @ 8,000 rpm.

The frame of the KTM 1190 RC8 R consists of a powder-coated Chromium-Molybdenum trellis main unit and aluminium subframe. The front suspension is handled by a fully adjustable WP 43 mm USD fork with 120mm of travel. At the rear is a fully adjustable WP monoshock - also with 120mm of travel.

Braking is handled by 2 x Brembo four piston radially bolted calipers, and 320 mm brake discs up front. The rear brake comprises of a 220mm disc gripped by a Brembo 2-piston caliper.

Styling wise there is little to complain about, and KTM's designers should be proud of their hard work. The angular, aggressive bodywork of the KTM 1190 RC8 R looks razor sharp and is fantastically defined in matt black with orange and white accents.
