KTM India recently unveiled the 1190 RC8 R at the Delhi Orange day, giving rise to fevered speculations over the web and online forums that the superbike would soon be seeing its Indian launch.
But, unfortunately, the truth is that the Austrian makers have no plans to launch the 1190 RC8 R in the country anytime soon, and were just showcasing it to increase their brand awareness here. Regular readers might remember that KTM followed the same approach with their 350 SX-F enduro bike, sometime back in Mumbai.
However, in case you just wanted a glimpse of this orange track monster, you’re in luck as KTM will be displaying the 1190 RC8 R at select showrooms across the country. So head over there, click some pictures aside/astride it and don’t forget to send it to us so that we can print them in the ‘You’ section of your favourite biking magazine.
