As the RC8 gets closer to going into production, KTM are busy putting final touches to the bike, tweaking and tuning it to near-perfection, as befits KTM’s ‘ready to race’ ethos. For this, the Austrian company has now appointed two-time German superbike racing champ, Stefan Nebel as the official test rider for the KTM RC8.
Born in 1981, Stefan Nebel is, by his own admission, at home on tracks like the Nurburgring and Brands Hatch. He’s won the Superbike IDM series in 2003 and 2005, and has put in impressive performances in 24-hour and 8-hour endurance races at Le Mans and Suzuka. KTM say they are confident that Nebel, as a test rider, will be able to work with the company’s R&D division to further develop and refine the RC8.
