KTM RC 8C: Interested parties can place an online pre-order for the 2024 KTM RC 8C starting Wednesday, March 20.

The 2024 model will cost 2,342 euros more than the 2023 model, even if the spec sheets suggest a bike more like the 2023 model. Additionally, KTM will only produce 100 of the models instead of 200 of the previous generation.

The KTM RC 8C is the epitome of a competition motorcycle—light as a feather, with a well-defined goal—equipped with the best parts designed for competition and driven by a potent 889 cc parallel-twin engine. The Austrian company’s offer for MotoGP experts Jack Miller and Brad Binder to test drive the model is evidence that it is all-in.

The carbon Kevlar bodywork of the 2024 KTM RC 8C, which was influenced by the KTM RC16, conceals the 889 cc, 8-valve, 130 horsepower LC8c DOHC parallel-twin engine inside. All of this is paired with a specifically made 25CrMo4 multitubular steel frame that enhances its competitive adaptability with premium WP PRO COMPONENTS and a selection of lightweight components.

High-performance 43 mm WP APEX PRO 7543 closed cartridge cassettes are fitted to the front of the fork, and a WP APEX PRO 7746 mono-shock with a remote preload regulator at the rear axle ensures precise behavior and provides easy and accurate adjustment of compression and extension at high and low speeds. A pair of Brembo 19RCS CORSA CORTA radial brake master cylinders, developed for the MotoGP racetrack, deliver braking force for the KTM RC 8C. These master cylinders regulate Brembo Stylema front calipers and 290 mm fully floating brake discs. Rear braking is handled by a two-piston Brembo caliper and a 230mm full-floating disc that is lightweight thanks to titanium bolts and an aluminum core reinforcement.
