Some choices are just too hard

I'd go with the RC8, I love KTM's angular style.

KTM looks awesome. KTM wins in the power to weight ratio by .339 lbs per hp. WIth either get ready to hang on.

RC8 is sexy, but not a daily rider. I would pick the Duc for a daily (even though it is far from ideal).

Are you looking for a track toy? RC8 is great for that. Feels very thin, and lighter than it actually is.

Everyone here knows I hate the power delivery of most twins. I actually really like the RC8, though.
