2013 Superbike RC8R with slipper clutch

The 2013 KTM ADVENTURE motorcycles were presented at INTERMOT but were just several of the factory’s fresh line-up for the coming year.

Here is a video (in German) on the flagship Sportsbike RC8R model with a special technical upgrade. The translation of the small presentation can be seen below …

“The new slipper clutch is a bold new addition for 2013 and the effect will help further stabilise the rear end of the bike under heavy braking. The RC8 is without a doubt one of our most important sportsbikes and Martin Bauer won the German IDM Superbike title with this machine, so it is proven and competitive. The RC8 is a pure riding motorcycle; the design is firmly based on fun and adrenaline and for 2013 it is now even more smooth and faster.”
