Featured In the November 2021 issue of Roadracing World:

        “The large group of riders gathered on pit lane at Jerez Circuit, anxiously waiting for the blue garage doors to roll up and unveil their new 2022 KTM RC 8C track bikes. When the garage doors finally opened, they revealed a fleet of 25 KTM RC 8C motorcycles, each with a custom number and all on stands and tire warmers, awaiting their new owners. 

        “The atmosphere in the pit box was electric and the excitement infectious. I snuck into the group unnoticed and claimed the only unmarked KTM RC 8C in the lot. I was happy to join the group for a day at Jerez, and tried to stay under the radar. A full day of riding on the track was ahead, including eight 20-minute sessions, with Dani Pedrosa and Mika Kallio mixing with the group on and off the racetrack…”

            Build a motorcycle that evokes passion for riding and it will sell—that was KTM’s plan for the track-only $38,999 RC 8C. Adding in a once-in-a-lifetime track day experience at Jerez with KTM MotoGP test riders Dani Pedrosa and Mika Kallio for $5,700 (race track equipment package and event fee) saw the 100 units available worldwide sell out in just 4 minutes and 32 seconds! But how does it work on the track? Racing Editor Chris Ulrich was on hand to test the sporting twin, and his review is in the latest issue of Roadracing World!
