The Unconventional TWINN

I just recieved my Sport Rider Mag and on page 26 is an article about KTM's RC8. Ive seen other articles but no pricing. SR printed the MSRP:19,498...
I was thinking it would be more than that, but hey whatever.

the why would they call it manufacturers suggested retail price? as compared to wholesale price...? obviously if its a hot seller the dealers end up tacking more on, but msrp in usually includes a nice markup for the dealer to make money with.

Can't imagine people lining up to drop that kind of coin on an unproven platform.
I'm hoping it at least makes the company some money though. I like KTM and I love twins. Only time will tell.
