The world’s first supercharged KTM RC8!


Dyno testing the world's first supercharged KTM RC8...

How do you improve upon the already awesome KTM RC8? Well, if you’re Finland-based Lantto Racing, you simply blot a supercharger on to the bike! We don’t have much in the way of tech specs and high-res pictures, but Lantto’s bike does seem to be the world’s first supercharged RC8…

According to the (rather scant) information available on their website, this stretched, supercharged RC8 does 10.17 second quarter-mile (400m) runs, hitting 219km/h in the process. The bike has been built by Lantto, in partnership with the Denmark-based R-Techs.

We’ll try and get better pics and more information on the bike soon…


...and in the meanwhile, here's a Red Bull Racing replica KTM RC8 from Orca, whose work we've featured earlier, here and here
