KTM RC8 Only Available Until The End of 2008

News has just broken that the 2009 KTM 1190cc RC8 will only be sold via KTM’s Priority Delivery Deposit Program, which ends on New Year’s Eve.

Editor’s note: F@#!!!

Which means you have less than 19 days (and counting) until it will be too late to get your hands on Austria’s first purpose-built sportbike. Nothing has been mentioned about the race-inspired RC8R, but we expect a similar arrangement. Oh, and did we mention production numbers will be limited.

    2009 KTM Street Model Release
    For the 2009 season, the USA KTM model line-up will include the 690 SMC, 690 Duke (White, Orange and Black) and the brand new 690 Enduro R. Also new for 2009 is the hardcore 950 Super Enduro R Erzberg edition, the new 990 Adventure (Orange or White) with a new look, more horsepower, new features and the brand new 990 Adventure R. In addition, the 1190 RC8 will be available only in limited quantities through the Priority Delivery Plan (read below) to customers that submit deposits by December 31, 2008.

    * Unfortunately, due to the ongoing economic crisis, the 2009 KTM Superduke and Superduke R models will not be available in the US. Also, the next generation of 990 Supermoto including the Supermoto R and T models will not be on the boat this year.
