All 100 units of the KTM RC 8C were sold out in four minutes and 32 seconds
KTM unveiled its latest Moto2-inspired track bike just last week called the KTM RC 8C. They also announced that there will only 100 units going into production where each unit is priced at $39,000 (around RM165,000). While most folks might think that the KTM RC 8C carries a hefty price tag, that did not stop the fans with deep pockets from clearing out all the allocated stock in less than five minutes.
Online bookings were opened last weekend and it only took them four minutes and thirty-two seconds for all 100 units to sell out. We're guessing that official KTM distributors and dealers had something to do with this, and if luck is on our side, we might just see a few units landing in the Asian region. Hopefully, KTM Malaysia managed to cop one for themselves.
The KTM RC 8C is a track-only beast developed from the brand's major involvement in all three MotoGP race categories, particularly Moto2. KTM also claimed that the RC 8C has an almost 1:1 power/weight ratio thanks to its claimed 140kg dry weight and its 890cc parallel-twin engine which is said to produce around 128hp.
It's also fitted with carbon Kevlar-reinforced bodywork inspired by the KTM RC16 MotoGP bike (note the beautiful winglets up front), WP Suspension Pro components, Brembo Stylema brakes, Dymag lightweight wheels, Akrapovic race exhaust, plus many more. The KTM RC 8C is the closest thing to a Moto2 bike normal mortals can own without breaking the bank too much.
