    Ktm rc8

    KTM RC8 for sale.



    Stock standard, other than radiator guard and fender eliminator (have std. fender assembly).
    One owner (other than dealer!).
    Ridden only on country runs. Exclusively.
    Circa 32k kms. Presents, runs and rides perfectly.

    Serviced by one person since new (KTM head mechanic, he would, i am sure, certainly provide you a glowing reference on this motorcycle).
    No apprentices. No numpties have touched this bike.

    Condition: as near to brand spanking new as is humanly possible.
    Two tiny stone chips which have had factory touch up paint applied. You wont spot them so i'll point them out to you.
    Tyres good but approximately 1/2 worn.
    Registered, always garaged and covered.
    KTM bag (clips to rear seat - expensive and beautifully matched to bike).
    Bike cover.
    Battery tender.

    Genuine reason for sale... i'm 58 years old, LOVE the twisties, but am calling it quits to ride my vintage bikes. I recently had a rider die on me roadside and it's eating away at me inside... enough said?

    Yes, i'm hurting... I've just committed to dropping my beloved country runs... to putt around on old bikes... so please don't ask dumb fucking questions. Thank you.

    $10,500 (i'd like more, trust me).
    This is my don't-ask-dumb-fucking-questions price.
    I've sold every bike since 2003 on PSB, so i'm pricing to sell my bike as painlessly and swiftly as i have achieved prior.

    Many references to my totally anal bike ownership traits, my trustworthiness and whatever you'll want from a seller... as you can imagine after a lifetime (52 years) of riding/ownership.

    Please contact someone else about some other bike if you're not serious... i expect someone to rush over and drop cash... seriously.

    Bike is stock as a rock (see above), and faultless condition (see above).
    Some expensive riding gear will be thrown in if it suits you...and if you don't ask dumb... you get the message.

    I feel like weeping.
    Help me make this clean and painless.

    Thanks chew it's literally the end of an era for me. i held back tears whilst writing the ad, what a pussy eh? lol!
    I'm sure you'll be loving your SP once you get it going

    Folks the RC8 has adjustable seat height, handlebar height and footpeg height. These adjustments give a huge range for tailoring to different body types.
    It has multi-adjustable suspension all 'round, and this machine has been adjusted (by Marty) for my weight of `90kg.

    I have all papers for the bike, including servicing, parts manual and factory fixes/recalls performed (all known).
    It has the original factory tools, a spare new screen, a sheepskin seat cover and more... all to go with the bike.

    Free-with-sale gear can include boots (Sidi size 10, take them if they fit you), gloves and possibly jacket (Teknic with safety hump - wont suite my old bike collection/riding so may as well go to a good home).

    The rear brake pads are getting low, and i have a new set to throw in to be installed next service (or you might do so yourself).
    Rear passenger seat and footpegs are bagged up and go with the bike.

    Can't think of any other bits to go with the bike, as its a clean unmolested example (as per original ad above, the bike has a FE fitted to show off it's magnificent rear, but new original to go with bike).

    I have nowhere to go on price so please no low ballers... there's likely not another like this (non-modded) and certainly not pristine as this one is.
    If you'd prefer something with a heap of mods/extras... look no further than right here on PSB for one on offer (at the time i'm writing this in any case) with big money spent on such... cheers.

    This pains me. I know the pain bud.

    But seriously. Such an amazing bike and In stock form these things are sensational. I'm running the race cams on mine, but I peronsally preferred the stock cams for a little more lower torque and traction.

    Best of luck for a seriously amazing looking and cared for bike.

    OK Honda and Kawasaki gone.... Katie must also go.

    Still chasing a GT750J, but also interested in a Titan and a widowmaker... cash either way.

    $9,990.
    No riding gear at this price though.

    Not sure if price is an issue, but i don't want to ride the bike now it's for sale, and i could do with the garage spot (bought a vintage bike interstate, haven't arranged transport yet due to full garage).

    Inspection will not disappoint.

    Interested in a swap? Haha

    Just wait til I drop mine to $7,990 🙃

    I don't think price is an issue. Already well below what a bike of that Cali really is worth especially considering as they aren't producing them anymore.
    Anyone that has risen my bike has loved it for the weight and useable power... that plus the look dead gorgeous!
    And for anyone that said "gees mate that doesn't look comfortable" has always been proven wrong. Lots of adjustability and standard features that were well ahead of its time!

    Sad sad days for both of us.
    Still. Good luck with the sale mate

    OK, images of various aspects of the machine... all taken this morning.
    Click on each for the fullsize image, thanks.

    The RC8 has a very desirable parts inventory... top end WP suspension, Brembo brakes, Marchesini Rims.



















    This motorcycle is immaculate, stock and ready to go. I checked the tyres and the front is still at least 80%, the rear around 70%.
    Nothing to spend. She's ready for summer...
