2024 KTM RC 8C Launched, More Limited, More Expensive

The 2024 KTM RC 8C has been launched and interested parties can pre-order online from Wednesday, 20th March.

Although the spec sheets point to a bike that is similar to the 2023 model, the 2024 models will be £2,000 (MYR12,003.16) dearer. However, KTM will build only 100 of the 2024 model, compared to 200 of the previous.

So what do you get for £36,999 (MYR222,057.57)? As before, the bike is built in collaboration with Krämer:

  • The same 889cc LC8c engine from the 890 Duke R, albeit tuned to 135hp at 12,000 RPM.
  • Top spec WP APEX PRO 7543 forks and WP APEX PRO 7746 shock.
  • MotoGP-esque carbon aero wings.
  • Race-spec Brembo 19RCS Corsa Corta radial master brake cylinder, Brembo Stylema calipers, and brake discs with aluminium rotors and titanium screws.
  • Lightweight aluminium Dymag wheels.
  • AIM MXS 1.2 RACE dashboard and data logger with built-in GPS functionality, displayed on a 5″ TFT screen with continuous data recording.

Customers who secure a 2024 KTM RC 8C with a £900 (MYR5,401.59) deposit on the day will get an invite to a handover event at Portugal’s Portimao race track which includes a track setup session, dinner, meet and greet, and an exclusive track day experience with ‘KTM Race Royalty’.

So, remember to place your orders, okay? Make Malaysia proud.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
