Little about it:

The new 990RC8 is a streetfighter type, with a 75° V2, 999.8 cc engine.

The seat is the fuel tank, giving this 175 kg (385 pounds) motorcycle a low center of gravity.

Top speed: 280 kilometers per hour ( 174 miles per hour)

the fairing is ok..but the style is too choppy..I like sleek styles, aerodynamic, smoth looking, something looks like it flows together more.

It looks like a combo of 2 bikes. A Duc in the front to middle and a R6 or R1 in the rear.

Not exactly a concept. KTM is working on producing it.

At the time of the article about it is was a concept bike and since its not coming out till 2008...its still a concept bike to me.

Personally, I think it's fugly as hell. I'm with N4S...I like the sleeker, buffer look. This one's too boxy and choppy, and there's just something about it that's not quite right. :puke: :sorry:
