Sharper and lighter than anything that calls itself competition: 120 Nm torque, 155 HP at 10,000 rpm and withs less than 200 kilos fully tanked.

Nonetheless, thanks to innovative solutions and meticulous detail work, we’ve achieved unsurpassed rideability – on the street and on the racetrack, in every situation – of life or riding.

The latest generation LC8 two-cylinder, dry sump lubrication, displacement: 1148 cc, power: 155 HP (113.8 kW)
– Underfloor exhaust system, regulated catalytic converter
– Lightweight steel trellis frame with light alloy subframe
– Premium-quality, fully adjustable WP suspension components
– Radially-mounted Brembo four-piston monoblock brake callipers with 320 millimetre brake discs

2008 marked a milestone in KTM’s history as this was the year in which the company launched the first Superbike to be designed and manufactured in Austria: the fascinating 1190 RC8. This highly stylised machine highlighted KTM’s sporty abilities on asphalt. The latest generation LC8 twocylinder motorcycle was designed from scratch. The high-tech drive has a displacement of 1148 cc and generates 155 HP and a 120 Nm torque. The carburetion is made possible by a fuel injection system with 52 mm throttle valves. The engineers positioned the silencer by centralising the masses beneath the engine, further optimising the nimble handling of the Superbike that weighs less than 200 kg with a full tank. The ultra-light frame also makes it possible to perfectly position the powerful yet highly compact engine and is equipped with premium-quality, fully adjustable WP chassis components. The subframe, footrests and clip-on handlebars are height-adjustable. A powerful Brembo brake system with four-piston monoblock brake callipers with 320 millimetre brake discs is used for superior deceleration.
