Parallel twin KTM RC sports car: design and ergonomics

The design of the shield on this parallel twin KTM sportbike has many similarities with the race-only limited edition Supercar RC 8C. However, this new bike will be completely road legal when indicated by the presence of road essentials such as round LED headlights, indicator lights, mirrors and license plate holders.

Since this is a sportbike, the handlebars have been removed and replaced with a clamp style, although the riding position does not seem too difficult. This, despite the fact that the clip-ons are positioned under the top triple clamp. Looking at the relatively comfortable footrest also reinforces the idea that this bike will likely feature one of the more comfortable rider triangles in the supersport segment.

Billions perch doesn’t seem like the unforgivable mindset we’re used to seeing, and even the footrests aren’t overly aggressive. As of now, the car has a metal plate near the rear footrest, most likely this metal plate will be there to refine the final position.

In stark contrast to the exhaust under the saddle seen above KTM Duke 790/890this KTM RC sports car has a more conventional side exhaust, like the flagship 1290 Super Duke CHEAP. Another notable difference to the 890 Duke is the presence of a much larger radiator.

Hardware seems to be top things like adjustable WP front forks, seemingly Brembo Stylema front brake calipers, and beefy gullwing swingarms. The TFT panel is much larger than the one found on the 890 Duke and resembles the panel found on the 1290 Super Duke R. One point where the parallel twin KTM RC is similar to the 890 Duke is that it shares the same alloy rims cast as Duke. Expect a full set of riding aids to be provided.

Considering the overall rough finish on the parallel-engine KTM RC, a production model is quite a while away. In terms of what it will compete with at launch, this bike will likely be positioned close to, but lower than, bikes like Ducati Panigale V2.
