Rc 8..

Production not to start for this ride till 2007..



From the KTM press kit giving to Roadracing World:



"For the RC8, we brought our riders to the design table as well as the best technicians and designers. Our aim: The ultimate weapon for am-bitious street-fighters. That means: A radical concentration of its mass around the compact 75° V2. Innovative details are everywhere: The seat is the tank, keeping fuel at the machine’s centre of gravity. Dry sump lubrication allows the entire exhaust system to sit precisely where it has the least influence on dynamics. Directly under the engine. The fairing is designed to produce: The least possible crosswind drag. The result: No crosswind oscillation, spell-binding agility, and aggres-sive steering ability.
(Planned start of production 2007)"

It looks like something that was in the movie "Tron". That was a good movie in its day.
