    2012 KTM RC8R


    It's listed everywhere else, might as well throw it up here too.

    This was a bucket list bike for me. Never thought I'd have the chance to own one. It's an absolutely amazing bike, but sadly not really what I need. I'm asking $10k, but would trade for an ADV bike (Tiger 800XC, Africa Twin, maybe something else). If I get cash I'll probably wait for the KTM 790 ADV to hit.

    Nearly mint condition (one small mark on the tail) with under 19k miles. Never dropped, down, raced or tracked.

    Akrapovic Evo 4 full titanium exhaust system (around a $2500 upgrade)
    Retuned to match the exhaust and KTM's updated specs
    WP factory suspension
    Brembo brakes
    Marchesini wheels
    Newer Dunlops
    New Brembo brake pads
    New battery
    Three keys (two black, one orange)
    Clean title
    Comes with a set of track plastics (but like I said, it's never seen the track)
    Lots of anodized orange bling, adjustable levers, tinted screen, integrated turn signals, bar end mirrors, etc.

    It's a crazy fast, super rare and exotic European sport bike. You won't see another one at your local bike night, and everyone will tell you how cool it is and ask you a million questions. Still, it's ridiculously easy to ride and extremely confidence inspiring. Maintenance is a breeze and insurance isn't as crazy as most Euro superbikes.

    Trades considered for other cool bikes. Some room on price for a serious cash offer.

    Someday I'll learn how to flip pictures around.

    I'm heading over to the Isle of Man next week and would like to have the bike sold before then - price drop to $9k!

    For anyone interested, I have two of these right now. They are solid bikes.

    Great bikes. Iíve known about five people maybe more who have had them. In fact one bought one, sold it, then bought one again to made a track bike.

    Yeah it's amazing. Not so great at dodging potholes in Boston, but given the chance to run free, it's great.

    What kind of wood is that seat made out of?

    Beautiful bike and must be a blast to rip.

    It's actually super nice memory foam, but it's about 1/16" thick

    It's on eBay for about ~22 more hours if you want to steal it.
