Three years back, KTM introduced the second generation of their first ever sports bike, 1190 RC8 R. The bike became quite popular and now KTM plans to launch the new generation 2015 KTM 1190 RC8 R bike in India. Let’s get in to the detailing of this bike.
The 2015 KTM 1190 RC8 R has an aggressive face but it features the typical styling of KTM. The oval shaped face of this bike differentiates it from others. The long headlight has been placed artistically in its front fairing which also has a stylish visor. You will also notice rear view mirrors integrated with LED side indicators which are neither mounted on its fairing nor on its handlebar. They arise from just behind the visor of this bike which gives it a unique identity. The broad front tyre, fender and big disc plate at its front gives macho look to this bike.
2015 KTM 1190 RC8 R comes with a five-spoke alloy wheels and semi exposed engine follows the all black theme and suits the orange color of its exposed steel frame. The racy decals on its semi side fairing looks very sporty and you will also like the way KTM has integrated its engine cowl with muffler. The up-raised fuel tank has been neatly designed with 3D sharp cuts on it. The awkwardly tall positioned rear cowl of this bike grabs your attention instantly. There is huge gap between its rear cowl and rear tyre which gives naked looks to this super bike. The rear cowl features two horizontal layers of its LED tail light while its short rear fender carries its number plate and side indicators.
2015 KTM 1190 RC8 R is powered by a powerful 1,195 CC, 2 cylinder, 4 stroke, spark ignition, 75° V arrangement, liquid-cooled engine matted with a 6-Speed, claw shifted transmission capable of producing peak power of of 129 KW (173 Hp) capable to rocked with a top-speed at 190mph(Est.).
At last I would like to say that 2015 KTM 1190 RC8 R is coming to fulfill the dreams of sports bike lovers. What you think? Please be open to give your view and stay tuned for more updates.
