Rc8/r






hey guys just wanted to see what your thoughts are on this bike, either the regular RC8 or the Rc8r,

i myself have not seen them yet on the road, this would be the second year i believe they will be produced, i see some recalls on them, which i believe is for the trans, could be wrong.

its a twin, so i figured i would ask around here . i believe the regular model will retail for around $15k and the R model for about $20k.

i think its a good looking bike and i just have a natural love for the twins. still the RC51 has a special place with me.

Saw one of the regular rc8's at a bike run last year in Cork Ireland.Since then I've seen it around the city a few times.Looks amazing and I can imagine they'll be rare enough on the road.I think the tank is plastic but might be mistaken.

The RC8R is the better bike.
Especially with the performance kit installed.
Then you have similar performance as the Ducati 1198R.
Although probably just as expensive.

I've been following this bike since it's initial design stages 6 years ago.
It was bases on the 990 Superduke engine before they redesigned it.
