More Photos of the 2011 KTM 1190 RC8 R 2011 KTM RC8 R 18 635x423

If you are like us, you were left wanting more when the first images of the 2011 KTM 1190 RC8 R leaked ahead of its EICMA debut. It is hard to imagine how KTM could improve upon the RC8 R platform, but the Austrian company did so anyways, upping the performance level to 175hp, while adding some hot new color schemes for 2011. If you have the means to afford one, we highly recommend picking up this v-twin monster – it’s simply superb. Check out the 18 photos after the jump, and bring a washcloth.

    This sound like a quote from Ferris Beuler’s Day Off…

    @ RobG: KTM had already shown a concept bike called the Venom a few years ago that was essentially a naked RC8. It was supposed to go into production, but I am guessing that with RC8’s languishing on the sales floor, that plan has either been scrapped, or put on hold. Do a google image search for KTM Venom and you will see it. Definitely a unique looking bike.
