Anyone run into a KTM 1190 RC8?

I'm in NY, near Albany on business today... I could have sworn I saw one on the other side of 87. They look pretty BA, just haven't seen one up close.

That's what I was thinking, price point isn't too bad either.

First one I saw (not at a dealer) was parked in front of my last apartment. I used to live above a tattoo shop. Sharp-looking.

Next was on track at my last track day. Cool guy who control rides for Motorcycle Xcitement... he guided me around traffic nicely (and quickly). My impression was it wasn't quite as fast as my bike in a straight line but I'm sure it would still be fun as hell. I love the way they look, too.

Maybe, but that's a straight up race bike, with parts almost worth that much

Oh, and the catch - not a lot of top end. You either ride it fast through the corners and maintain a high average speed or you get into a straight line drag race with an inline 4 and get smoked like a Philly blunt.
