Last week, KTM announced that the exclusive, 100-unit-only RC 8C will be sold via a live online event. The event started on July 22, 2021 at 10:00 PM Manila time. By 10:04 PM, all bikes were sold out. That’s 4 minutes and 32 seconds to be exact.
The KTM RC 8C is an exciting entrant into the supersport segment, drawing inspiration directly from KTM’s track experience in a bid to offer exclusive Grand Prix-type performance in a user-friendly package.
Even though this racetrack-only RC 8C is only powered by a meager 889cc parallel-twin engine (versus the competition's 4-cylinder liter bikes), it makes up with its high power-to-weight ratio that is almost 1:1 and features high end components worthy of a race machine.
25 out of the 100 lucky customers were also able to book a very exclusive and private KTM RC 8C Track Experience that will take place at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain from October 7-9. In this event, they’ll get to ride alongside Red Bull KTM Factory Racing MotoGP test riders, Dani Pedrosa and Mika Kallio.
