The 2024 Ktm Rc 8c Is Ready To Bring Limited-edition Racing To The TrackLimited to just 100 hand-built units, the 2024 KTM RC 8C is set to bring unprecedented levels of performance to the track, complete with unmatched READY TO RACE credentials, with true Grand Prix nods of approval.

The KTM RC 8C epitomises a purpose-driven, featherweight racer propelled by a potent 889 cc parallel-twin engine and comes fitted with the absolute best in race-ready componentry.

Along with this, buyers can book the ultimate handover session at Portimão, Portugal. This event requires the additional purchase of a mandatory RACE PARTS PACKAGE that consists of all the necessary bits to participate in the most exclusive handover on the planet. This event will include a personalised track setup session, private dinner, meet and greet, an exclusive track day experience with KTM racing royalty, hot laps in a KTM X-BOW race car with KTM Factory Drivers and to top it off, KTM will be unveiling something super-special as a world-exclusive preview of what is to come from the brand in the future.

The 2024 KTM RC 8C boasts Carbon Kevlar bodywork inspired by the KTM RC16, with a 135 PS, 889 cc LC8c DOHC 8-valve parallel twin at its heart. This is all bolted to a purpose-built 25CrMo4 steel tubular frame, enhancing its race-readiness with top-tier WP PRO COMPONENTS and a suite of lightweight elements.

Crafted hand in hand with Krämer Motorcycles, the KTM RC 8C stands as a testament to their collaborative mastery in sculpting a bona fide racing machine. With features like quick-release tank and body panels, lightweight Dymag wheels and Pirelli race slicks, this track-only motorcycle leaves no doubt about its intended purpose.The 2024 Ktm Rc 8c Is Ready To Bring Limited-edition Racing To The TrackUp front, a high-performance 43 mm WP APEX PRO 7543 closed cartridge fork – tailored for track use – delivers unrestricted damping control, catering to the demands of performance-oriented riders and seasoned racers alike.
