2009 KTM RC8 Venom: Sheer, naked, fun!


The KTM RC8 Venom should be production-ready by 2009...

First shown in 2004 as a concept bike, the KTM RC8 Venom is now said to be inching closer to going into production. With its 155bhp LC8 v-twin, top-spec chassis and suspension components, ergonomics that are less extreme than the fully-faired RC8 superbike, and 200kg wet weight, the Venom should be quite performance-packed. When it's finally launched (late-2009?), it should be interesting to see how it compares with the likes of the Aprilia Tuono and BMW HP2 Sport
