Wish we were there: inside the exclusive KTM RC 8C handover in Spain

The KTM RC 8C is one of those rare concept bikes that actually makes its way into the garages of a handful of everyday enthusiasts.

When KTM announced they’d be producing 100 handbuilt, very much not road legal RC 8Cs, it took just 4 minutes for them to sell out.

Just because KTM are awesome, they also offered 25 exclusive packages that included a trip down to Jerez in Spain for a personalised handover of the bike, suspension set up, track testing and some customary “networking” with members of the KTM racing team.

It’s unlikely we’ll ever get the chance to sell any of these machines, but the RC 8C story (documented in the video below) does show the lengths KTM are willing to go to for their customers and to help push the level of amateur racers. 

We don’t think you can say the same for many other manufacturers. If you’re interested in becoming a part of the KTM family and getting opportunities like the lucky devils in the video below, check out our current stock listing or pop into the showroom for a chat.
