1190 RC8 R Track: For race track use only

A strictly limited number of bikes for those who want to use their 1190 RC8 R exclusively on the racetrack. Factory-homologated for Superstock and built to be “ready to race” by the KTM Racing Division, with all the goodies from the KTM PowerParts range that make the potential for race success even greater. And equipped, of course, with everything that makes the KTM superbike so successful – crowned with the IDM manufacturer’s title 2010. A power pack like no other.

READY TO RACE>> @ ONLY 85,000 AED!!!

With the KTM RC8 R Track, the brand that is passionate about motorsport bridges the gap between the official RC8 racing engagement and the series models.

KTM now offers a street bike product that is a pure bred sports-oriented racing machine. More and more riders of super sporty bikes are now showing a preference for the race track in the form of either training sessions or races.

Riders who are regularly on the race track often invest a lot of time and money to prepare their sports machine in the best possible way. In the case of the RC8 R Track, the KTM Racing Department takes over this role. The “Track” directly developed and produced by the RC8 Motorsport Department is the perfect two cylinder Superbike for hobby riders – like those competing in various championships.

The motorcycle is compatible with the FIM Superstock homologation and can therefore be used in official championships. The “Track”, based on the RC8 R, which in the standard model is already numbered among the most powerful Superbikes, is in every way “Ready to Race“.
