No Compromise: The KTM RC 8C is developed and built in partnership with Krmer Motorcycles, around a no-compromise, hand-built racing chassis with a 100% track-focused objective. With one eye on all out performance and the other on usability, this 140 kg machine is truly without equal.
Frame: Developed without compromise for the racetrack, the KTM RC 8C features a Chromium-molybdenum steel trellis frame, which is precision engineered and hand finished to be ultra-stiff, pin-point precise and lightweight. Like the greatest of race machines, the frame also offers a multitude of adjustment settings.
Triple Clamp: Lightweight, CNC machined triple clamps feature an adjustable offset for tailored rider control. Offset can be set in two positions, 26 and 28 mm, for faster turn-in, improved stability and sniper-like accuracy.
Swingarm: Cast in aluminum and precisely finished in the CNC machine, this bespoke swingarm provides the perfect balance of agility and stability. The swingarm also features integrated crash protection with specially developed aluminum mounting plates which hold the crash pads. This helps protect the swingarm in the event of a fall, allowing the aluminum plates to bend, absorbing the impact and protecting the swing arm.
Suspension: At this level of refinement, only the very best WP Pro Components will do. That is why the KTM RC 8C boasts a suspension which is hand assembled in a special department at the WP headquarters - the very same place responsible for the assembly of the KTM RC16 suspension.
Rear Shock Absorber: Getting the power to the ground and keeping everything else in check comes courtesy of a fully compression, rebound and length adjustable WP APEX PRO 7746 Shock. And due to precise manufacturing tolerances, the suspension delivers maximum precision and direct feedback all day long.
Front Fork: Developed from the expertise gained in through international competition, the fully-adjustable WP APEX PRO 7543 closed cartridge 43 mm front fork features a high level of pedigree. Being specifically developed for racing, it is engineered from high quality, all-aluminum lightweight materials, and has no hydraulic stroke limitation, meaning riders can continually control the damping properties. Individual rider settings can also be finely and individually tuned with the fully adjustable compression and rebound damping and its split design allows for easy damping adjustability at the top of both fork legs.
Fuel Tank: The 16 liter fuel tank is integrated into the rear subframe and seat unit, weight centralization is spot on. The tank has also been cleverly developed to be easy to drain, thanks to a click on the fuel line connector. This allows accurate fuel consumption measurements at the track, but also makes draining the tank for transport or maintenance in the pits as easy as blitzing the pack off the line.
Race Proven Parts: The KTM RC 8C is hand-built and boasts factory racing-levels of premium componentry, from Dymag forged wheels, Pirelli Diablo rubber and to the very best items from the Brembo brakes parts bin.
Wheels: Boasting some of the lightest wheels on track, the KTM RC 8C makes use of lightweight Dymag UP7X forged aluminum wheels - 3.5 x 17 on the front and 6 x 17 on the rear - which ensures optimum acceleration and handling while being suitable for real world use on the track. Theyre practical too, with a quick change assembly and axle that allows wheels to be swapped out without disassembling the brakes.
