From a press release issued by KTM:

Limited to only 100 hand-built units, the 2024 KTM RC 8C is set to bring unprecedented levels of performance to the track, complete with unmatched READY TO RACE credentials, with true Grand Prix nods of approval.

The KTM RC 8C epitomizes a purpose-driven, featherweight racer propelled by a potent 889 cc parallel-twin engine and fitted with the absolute best in race-ready componentry. This exclusive, track-focused machine, in the most limited numbers ever produced, boasts a bespoke chassis engineered for the circuit, top-of-the-line racing components, and a resolute commitment to the track – embodying the essence of being 100% READY TO RACE.

The 2024 KTM RC 8C boasts Carbon Kevlar bodywork inspired by the KTM RC16, with a 135 PS, 889 cc LC8c DOHC 8-valve parallel twin at its heart. This is all bolted to a purpose-built 25CrMo4 steel tubular frame, enhancing its race-readiness with top-tier WP PRO COMPONENTS and a suite of lightweight elements.

Crafted hand in hand with Krämer Motorcycles, the KTM RC 8C stands as a testament to their collaborative mastery in sculpting a bona fide racing machine. With features like quick-release tank and body panels, lightweight Dymag wheels, and Pirelli race slicks, this track-only motorcycle leaves no doubt about its intended purpose.

fUp front, a high-performance 43 mm WP APEX PRO 7543 closed cartridge fork, tailored for track use, delivers unrestricted damping control, catering to the demands of performance-oriented riders and seasoned racers alike. Meanwhile, at the rear, a WP APEX PRO 7746 with a remote preload adjuster ensures precise handling, offering easily tunable high and low-speed compression and rebound settings.

Slowing the 2024 KTM RC 8C down are a set of MotoGP™-derived Brembo 19RCS CORSA CORTA radial master brake cylinders orchestrating Brembo Stylema front brake calipers gripping 290 mm fully floating brake discs. A Brembo two-piston caliper paired with a 230 mm fully floating disc handles rear braking duties, reinforced with aluminum rotors and titanium screws for added weight saving.

For comprehensive data acquisition and analysis, the 2024 KTM RC 8C integrates an AIM MXS 1.2 RACE dashboard and data logger with built-in GPS functionality. Displayed on a 5" TFT screen with continuous data recording capability, riders can harness AIM RaceStudio to scrutinize specific performance metrics, refining their lap times with ultimate precision.
