>To make the RC 8C, KTM have swapped out the control-spec Triumph 765cc triple-cylinder engine with its own 889cc LC8c parallel twin, as shared with the 890 Duke R, which generates 128bhp and roars from an Akrapovic titanium muffler.

Kill yourself, faggot. Tried to get it from the KTM website itself but even they're too ashamed to admit the cylinder config.

If you haven't spent time riding their 2 stroke 300 you don't know shit about motorcycles. (All of you nerds)
>>
>>26290908
It's one of my favorite brands. In short, whatever they do, they always have something to say, usually in the following categories:
- Distinctive looks
- Lightweight
- Great handling
- High tech

My grail bike is a Super Duke GT, I fucking love those things.

>>26291428
My bad, I was thinking of their older 1190 rc8 (the based one). Now go tongue punch your dead grandpas moldy sphincter and fuck off, you turbo faggot.

you need to buy 2
one to ride while the other is in the mechanic

russians have a backronym "клyб тpyдoлюбивых мeхaникoв" for them. take whatever you want out of that.
also the seats on non-adventure models suck, it's like they are made not for round human butts but for cuboid robotic ones. but that's fixable if you gonna splurge for a custom seat.

That's a Bajaj, friend.
>>26292368
To be fair, KTM didn't have a bike that could have made the trip then. (BMW didn't either, but they could afford to finance the support caravan that went with the bikes.)
KTM could do it now, without the caravan even. But now isn't then.

The 640 and 950 adventure
These are the bikes they originally wanted to use in the show

Don't

>>26290908
Kinda like and hate the styling at the same time, still don't trust their engines despite media and forums claiming they've totally fixed things. I considered Duke 790 but went for Z900 instead.

There's more to it. They usually are on the more angular side of design (kinda Lambo) and there's the visible chassis part too, which is usually somewhat different.
