Your prayers have been answered as the folks at Mattighofen is currently working on a road-legal version of the previously track-only KTM RC 8C.
The Austrian company recently made a wave with the so-called ‘track-only and ‘limited-edition RC 8C; however, it left many fans a little bit disappointed.
However, in the latest development, KTM is finally making a road version of the RC 8C, as proven by these spy shots shared by a German publication, motorradonline.de.
The road version looks excellent despite missing out on the vibrant KTM orange featured on the track-only RC 8C.
Looking closely, the bike features the same swingarm and frame found in the 890 Duke, replacing the bespoke frame available on the RC 8C track machine. A reasonable move, considering the frame is too expensive to produce in mass.
While the fairing seems similar to the RC 8C, it’s hard to figure out in detail how the bike would turn out at the end.
Nonetheless, considering that KTM will not feature at this year EICMA, it’s hard to tell when will the bike be unveiled, but we’ll be sure to bring you all the latest updates, so stay tuned!
