Not One but Two KTM RC8R Akrapovic Editions Available Right Now

In China, the #12 symbolizes the command and the good, and governs the space and the time. That is to say the operation of the cosmos, from where its designation of cosmic number. I mention this because on eBay right now, there are two KTM RC8R Akrapovic editions, one being the red bull edition and one being the black version -- and both are number 12 of the 25 produced of each version! The KTM RC8R has several advantages over the standard RC8, including more power, different steering angles, and lighter wheels. The limited edition Akrapovic version was above and beyond that, fitted with a full Akrapovic race edition exhaust and updated ECU. The Akrpaovic editions of RC8R were rare, only made for 1 year and only 50 total made with 25 each split between the red bull edition and the standard Akrapovic edition. Amazingly, both versions are listed for sale on eBay us right now, and oddly enough both are #12 of their respective runs.

Mono Mashup! 1980 KTM custom racer

Can you take a pile of not so rare parts and assemble them into something very rare and special? I think the likes of Harris, Baker, Spondon and even earlier Bimotas prove that this can be the case. Careful selection of parts and a healthy exchange of sweat equity can create something truly special. In this case, a super mono style racebike consisting of a Honda Hawk GT 650 aluminum twin spar frame and a KTM 525 single. Toss a RGV swingarm on the back, mate up a smattering of Honda CBR600 and 900 pieces to complete the mix, and you are ready to roll down your driveway.

We don't usually post unfinished custom builds on this site, but I took a chance on this one anyway. It is in far better nick than the GSX-R LE basket case recently posted by Ian, and it represents another type of spring project: sorting and finishing rather than a complete redo. The seller claims that this bike has seen a track day, although he has not ridden it on the track since he acquired it from the original builder. Is that a case of life getting too busy, or an indication of what lurks beneath? I'll let you decide.

From the seller:
For auction is my unique KTM powered supermono. I purchased this machine from the builder. The gentleman was a professional machinist from Toronto. He bulit the machine for supermono/sound of singles racing. As fate often has it, he didn't have as much free time as he thought (seems to be a recurrent theme). I negotiated the purchase of the machine and he brought it to me in an enclosed truck from Canada. The bike has one track day on it's clock. I rode the bike up and down my street a few times per year and started it to heat cycle it a few times. It is made up of a "hybrid" of components: it is essentially the wonderful honda hawk GT aluminum frame coupled to a suzuki 250 2 stroke aluminum swingarm. I am listing the specific compononets below. I have many many bikes and cars and another baby on the way so I'm honest enough with myself to know that I'm not going to have the time to race this great little bike. I have listed it with what I feel is a very low reserve. Please don't ask me the reserve however I do have it listed locally and am open to offers. Thus, I reserve the right to end the listing early. If you are interested in converting this to a street legal canyon carver, I have a nearly new duplicate hawk frame with a clear and open title that I will make available to the winner.

The seller has posted a brief spec sheet to go along with the pictures and text. Nothing terribly rare went into the bike, but what came out is a modern day super mono machine that has unmistakable potential. A little work may be needed to polish up the package, but it certainly looks to be a potent track day bike for anyone willing to try. Only a few bids thus far, with the auction up to $1,500 and reserve still in place. Somebody has already invested the dollars and sweat to get it to this stage; in the end this could be a real bargain. Click the link to jump over to the auction and check it out!

2010 KTM RC8R Red Bull For Sale

Only 25 of these were made available to the public, with 3 being listed on RSBFS previously last year as a simultaneous auction. This listing looks to be a pristine example of the RC8 red bull edition with low miles and the Akrapovic Exhaust option. With just under 2 days left on the auction, current high bid is $13999 reserve not met with a $17k buy-it-now option.

Thanks Marty!

Early December 2012 Mailbag [RC8R, GS1000, FZR1000, ZXR400]

Hey guys,

Here's the latest submissions to our email. It's been very busy for all of us at our day jobs and unfortunately we weren't able to to get to everything before it expired but we appreciate your submissions.

Thanks,

dc

First up is Adam's 2011 KTM RC8R. Current bid is just shy of $15100 and appears to be winning bid with 2 days to go. It comes loaded with tons of trick bits to be a track day super threat, but with just 1200 miles and all the stock bits included in the sale, you get to decide how it lives the rest of it's life. Good luck with the sale Adam!


Kurt and Amy forwarded this awesome 1978 Suzuki GS1000 survivor. Available in Tampa Bay, Florida for $4500 this one sports just 17k miles and looks like a great buy for this price and condition.


Ned forwards us this 1992 Yamaha FZR1000 in North Carolina. It has 22k miles but looks unmolested and even sports the original exhaust. For $2700 it's hard to go wrong here I think.


Jeff emails us this brand new 2000 Kawasaki ZXR400 for sale on eBay UK for about $8000 USD.

Red Bull Gives KTM Wings: 3 KTM RC8R Red Bull Editions!

For Sale:
KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition #4

KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition #5

KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition #23

There are days when scouring the 'net results in few - if any - rare bikes. And then there are days when there are so many rare bikes up for grabs that the entire staff of RSBFS cannot keep pace. Witness the multitudes of two strokes we have listed right now - lots of rare RZs and Gammas. Enjoy, because it may be a while before we see such a glut again.

While we were busy getting high on blue smoke and castor oil fumes, RSBFS superfan Marty spotted a trifecta of KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition bikes available at the same time - an unbelievable occurrance given that only 25 were made available. Guest contributor Marty writes:


When manufacturers make a limited edition of a bike, the odds of seeing two for sale at the same time tends to be pretty small

Of course the smaller the run (oh, lets say 25), the odds are certainly less.

And then there are the odds of seeing them on the same website at the same time....

So how should we react when 3 of the total production run of 25 Red Bull KTM RC8's are listing for sale at the same time and all are listed on ebay.com (USA)? All I can say is Im sharpening my ice skates and watching the weather forecast to see if they mention a guy named beelzebub.


Very well said, Marty. This is indeed a rare event. So let's take a look at the bikes! The RC8R Red Bull Edition was produced in extremely limited volume (25), with each bike individually numbered. Here is a great flyaround video of the KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition bike:


Now lets check out the bikes that are for sale. Starting out, here is KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition #4:

From the seller:
2010 KTM 1190 RC8-R Red Bull Limited Edition
Individually numbered #4 0f 25 imported into North America.... 20 in the USA

Limited Edition IDM Red Bull paint and graphics
Optional Club Race kit including Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, head gasket and new valve timing installed
GILLES TOOLING REARSETS
Yoyodine Slipper clutch
Fender eliminator
1278 mile trade in
Clubman kit is designed for racing - closed course use only

The auction for this RC8R #4 is on right now and the starting bid is a hefty $16,001. No bids as of yet (and three to choose from!), so take a look and enjoy!


The second bike on today's list is KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition #5. That's right, only ONE serial number up from the last bike posted!

From the seller:
Up for sale is my very own 2010 KTM RC8R RED BULL LIMITED EDITION in SHOWROOM NEW CONDITION with only 774 Miles on it. This is an extremely rare number plated motorcycle which is #5 of 25, and only 12 of the 25 were released to the U.S. The other 13 were sold in Europe. This bike was priced over $24,000 new. This bike has been equipped with the KTM Factory Club Race Kit ($4600 + $900 Installation) which was installed by the KTM Dealer where the bike was purchased. The Club Race Kit includes: -A FULL AKRAPOVIC EVO4 TITANIUM RACE EXAUST SYSTEM WITH TITANIUM HEADERS, -KTM HIGH COMPRESSION HEAD GASKET, -VALVE TIMING RETUNED, -KTM HIGH FLOW AIR FILTER, -IGNITION AND FUEL INJECTION REMAPPED, -DYNO TUNED. Standard features on the KTM 1190 RC8R Red Bull Limited Edition include: - WP REAR ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION, STEERING STABILIZER, AND 43mm INVERTED TiAlNi-COATED FORKS. - BREMBO 4-PISTON MONOBLOCK BRAKE CALIPERS WITH REINFORCED 320mm ROTORS. - MARCHESINI FORGED LIGHT WEIGHT ALUMINUM WHEELS. - LIGHT WEIGHT STEEL TRELLIS FRAME - PIRELLI DIABLO SUPERCOARSA SP TIRES THIS IS A MUST SEE BIKE AND IS GUARANTEED NOT TO DISAPPOINT!

This particular bike has only 774 miles on it (versus the 1,278 as reported on bike #4 above). The auction for KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition #5 is also on right now, with a lower opening ask than the previous bike (the current bid is only up to $14,450 with reserve in place) and BIN set at $17,000. So pricing is close between these bikes. With all of these bikes avilable, this one might come down to which seller is willing to deal.


The final bike available today is KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition #23. This particular bike appears to be the most utilized of the 3 listed, although the mileage is very close to the other two (1,210).

From the seller:
Please read everything in this auction listing.
Aprox 1200 Miles
Virginia Clean Title
Red Bull Edition #23 of 25
Club Racing Kit: Akro Titanium exhaust, head gaskets, removable kickstand, KTM air filter, etc........
Race bodywork w/dzuz fasteners
Extra set of race tires brand new
All stock parts
Comes with original mirrors not the bar end mirror.
BIKE IS SOLD AS-IS!!!

BAD: Bike was dropped at Summit Point T1 gravel pit, bike hit the gravel pit and it was dropped on the left side. The left mid section has gravel scratches/chips/whatever you will like to call it. You cannot tell the bike has been dropped until you are about 1-3 feet from the bike.

SCRATCHES/GRAVEL CHIPS ON:
Upper left
Mid
Corner of inside tail

PLEASE LOOK AT ALL THE PICTURES. I'VE POSTED ENOUGH PICTURES WITH FLASH AND WITHOUT FLASH SO YOU CAN SEE AS MUCH DAMAGE AS POSSIBLE. THE BIKE DID NOT TUMBLE, WENT STRAIGHT INTO THE GRAVEL PIT AND LANDED ON THE LEFT SIDE!!!

Well, it's a pity about the gravel rash, but on the other hand it is GOOD to see these bikes ridden in locations deserving of the pedigree. The auction for this KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition #23 is also on right now, and the pricing is right in line with the condition: the current bid is $8,251 with reserve still in place, and the BIN is set at $13,500.


The KTM RC8R is a serious sportbike and a serious contender. I must say that I am encouraged by Chris Fillmore and Stefan Nebel's AMA Superbike results on the KTM at both Infineon and Miller recently, and look forward to watching them progress. Meanwhile, if you want to get yourself onto a very collectable machine, take your pick. I'm not sure you can go wrong! And speaking of the AMA Superbike racer, check out the KTM team:

For his help with this post and his terrific commentary, we will be sending Marty a RSBFS sticker before they are available to the public. Watch for these goodies and more coming to the RSBFS Merchandise store soon. Thanks for the help, Marty!
