KTM RC8 in Carbon

KTM RC8 in Carbon, original photography by Joe Ercoli.

Strolling through the International Motorcycle Show, I made my way over to one of my favorite brands and I spotted this: an RC8 with carbon bodywork and an Akrapovic pipe. Talk about needing a bib for the drool…

I had been dying to just sit on this bike the moment that it was announced and I first laid eyes on it. But then we got them in over at MDK Motorsports and sitting on it hasn’t been enough, I need to ride one. We had one prepped and feeling the motor growl beneath me while squeezing the tank was almost too much to bear!

Yea, I was tempted to click ‘er down into gear and take off, but ya know, I kinda like my job. One of these days…

HDR Info: 3 RAWs combined with Photomatix and spot corrected with Photoshop by layered exposure blending. Shot on a tripod.
