After years in development and testing, KTM’s 1150cc RC8 superbike is set to be revealed at the Milan Motorcycle Expo.
While the real bike is still under wraps, KTM does offer clues on the RC8 preview site, offering videos aerodynamic tests and sketches of concept art.
The Engine for the 1150cc RC8 will appear in another bike to be released in 2009 called the Venom.
The RC8 will have a chance to prove itself on the racetrack. Rules for world superbike racing in 2009 will allow bikes, like the RC8, equipped with maximum 1200cc twins to race against 1000cc inline-four superbikes.
