As said before, it's a toss up who had the worst press presentation, BMW or KTM. In KTM's case, they had employees, dealers and probably customers in the front rows, so that we could not make proper photos. In fact, one KTM person very rudely shoved me away when I tried to approach to make a photo!

KTM have still a lot of learn... try learning fro Ducati...

Anyway, KTM finally presented their long awaited 1190 RC8 sports motorcycle, and the wait (and disorganization) was worth it. It's a completely different looking sportsbike...

The 1190 RC8 was kept under wraps while they made their merciful short speeches.

First to be unveiled was a white version of the RC8, followed by an orange version.

Next they showed a racing version that will take part in the stock bike competition initially, and then after that they will compete in the SuperBike championships.... yeah...

Finally, KTM showed a Ready-to-Race version of the RC8, which allows customer to race the motorcycle themselves, but still maintain street legal status.

IMHO, this is the best version of the RC8.... very nice..
