2011 KTM 1190 RC8R
Full throttle towards flow – you’ll become one with your KTM RC8 R. The Brembo’s bite is super precise and the tires elegantly hug the sweep of the line as your knee pads rub tracks into the asphalt. Back on the throttle, a hugely powerful torque, frequently no need to change gear – but always under control.
