Re: KTM RC8

Please, explain..... give us the formula to look at something and tell whether it "looks good". Please enlighten us, as to whose opinion matters, and tell us why. Provide for me the information to determine this, without being subjective, and by this I mean that I want a scientific explanation. When you satisfy these criteria, we will input data from both bikes, and see which one "looks better", a "z 12r" or an "Ar-1"

Re: KTM RC8

i think it has to many edges and points on it myself, but i like how the exhaust comes out the bottom, flush with the body panels.

Re: KTM RC8

undecided on it......... lots of points and harsh edges..... now the exhaust is something all bike manufacturers could learn from........ then o course the seat looks a bit thin.... but the front end looks good........


see what i mean ....... too many goods and bads IMHO

Re: KTM RC8

Seeing as how my beloved RC-51 is most likely in it's last year of production, this might be on my list of future bikes if it ever comes to light. In today's world of more powerful inline 4s, I still prefer a sport v-twin. It puts a grin on my face everytime I ride it and hasn't lost any of it's appeal. I can't say that for any inline 4 I've ever owned.

Re: KTM RC8

It looks more like a concept bike more than anything. Its meant to be flashy. It ressembles that stealth fighter(if think the name is correct-blackbird) with all those sharp edges.

The flush pipes are hot.
