There's a guy here on base that used to live in the barracks right next to where I worked that had one...

Maybe stock uncle P, but 180rwhp is 180rwhp.

Gear it out and tada! Top end

Totally bro, I'm talking stock ratios, but I don't have the words to describe the embarrassment of being stomped on by an inline 4 at over 240. I equate it to the same levels of shame as telling your parents you're dating Frank...

Put it this way I had an R1 and a Gixxer catch me on the move out the back of Kandanga on Gympie Brooloo Rd on the straight. I upshifted 5th and was half way through it when the R1 and the Gixxerstrolled past me. When the bike becomes a dedicated track bike, I'll fu*k around with the gearing. Outshines then in the turns though.

What's the catch?
Not a lot of dealers and not many choices for after market parts.

Other than that, very nice machine.

We have a great KTM dealer here that have sold about 4 Rc8's. It is crazy as we are a small town n the frozen North of Alaska and dont have any of the other Euro dealers here. The dealer owner has a '11 RC8R Race (comes with no lights, Akra system, Marchesinis and other goodies for 20k) amazing looking bike!! I have yet to see it in action but he says it corners like a dream. Also as Petrol said gearing wakes them up and he also milled the heads with good results.

We have two KTM "dealers" here, but zero of them like to rep their product. The way they do business as far as minimum stocking, and having to hold all the over head of holding the bikes on the floor. I'm pretty good friends with the Yamaha, and Honda owner here in town. He talks highly of the bikes, not so much their business moto they force down the throat of dealers.
